Hitachi has acquired Pentaho, a specialist in the integration, visualization, and analysis of data. Mr. Web brought this news to us in their article, “Hitachi Buys Data Visualization and Analytics Firm.” The plan is for Pentaho to retain its existing brand and continue to be led by current management, who will now report to Hitachi’s Senior Vice President of Social Innovation, Kevin Eggleston.

Pentaho’s platform will still be available as a standalone, but has also been integrated into Hitachi’s advanced analytics foundation software. Hitachi is building a robust analytics framework by combining the technology and expertise.

Not all technology is created equal. It is important to choose the right partner in technology, especially when your content is in their hands. Access Innovations is known as a leader in database production, standards development, and creating and applying taxonomies.
