December 10, 2010 – Business intelligence and analytics are receiving a boost with new support features for Apache Hadoop. Pentaho’s Business Intelligence support for Hadoop includes tools and wizards for business intelligence design, deployment, staging and  management.

Integration Developer News is where we found this article, “Pentaho Ships BI & Analytics Tools for Hadoop, Cloud.” Apache Hadoop is an open source software framework that allows data intensive applications and operations to work against massive amounts of data. Hadoop offerings include data integration, analytics data services, as well as a data access wizard that simplifies data preparation, loading and integration.

If business intelligence can simplify data integration, it is worth the technology and time.
