Pentaho, a Hitachi Group Company, today announced a Pentaho Labs collaborative effort resulting in Docker open source utilities to help simplify and speed big data analytics. Through the Pentaho Server, developers and data scientists can now work with the containerized open source platform to quickly build, ship, and run big data analytics at scale.
As the complexity of application deployments increase, developers must work rapidly to add new software components and expand their software footprint. Due to this, many developers are shifting away from traditional installation methods for more automated and scriptable approaches. New Docker open source utilities complement what developers are already doing by providing a way to unlock the power of analytics within containers to reduce testing and development time, automate the setup and configuration of a given environment and have more control over their big data deployments.
“The open source foundation of Pentaho allows quick innovation with emerging technologies, so that we may remain autonomous and provide flexibility to developers when it comes to adapting Pentaho solutions into their development and test environments,” said Ken Wood, Vice President of Pentaho Labs, Pentaho, a Hitachi Group Company. “Developers can leverage a scalable testing and development environment to push boundaries in areas such as IoT, machine learning and predictive analytics.”
