Pentaho and Its Hot Kettle

February 21, 2012

Here’s some more open source intelligence activity for you. “Pentaho Open-Sources Kettle Big Data Analytics Tools” under the Apache 2.0 license, reports eWeek. Writer Darryl K. Taft notes:

Because Apache is the license under which Hadoop and several of the leading NoSQL databases are published, this move will further accelerate the rapid adoption of Pentaho Kettle for Big Data by developers, analysts and data scientists as the go-to tool for taking advantage of big data, the company said.

Pentaho claims that its Kettle for Big Data boosts developer productivity tenfold through its visual tools. It also, they say, expands usability of big data platforms; taps into the full capabilities of big data platforms through native integration; and smoothly leads you and your data into the discovery and visualization tools of  Pentaho Business Analytics.

The article quotes representatives from 10gen, Cloudera, and Hadapt who are positive on the shift. We are waiting to see if open source really means open. Google, as we recall, has a different spin on open.
