San Francisco, California, UNITED STATES

SAN FRANCISCO and ORLANDO, Fla., Feb. 08, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pentaho, a Hitachi Group Company, today announced it has been recognized by Gartner, Inc. as a Visionary in the February 2016 Magic Quadrant for Business Intelligence and Analytics Platforms, which we feel further supports the company’s strong stance as a thought leader and innovator.

“We believe our positioning as a visionary by Gartner validates that our big data analytics and orchestration roadmap will continue to accelerate our customers investments, now and in the future,” said Quentin Gallivan, Chief Executive Officer at Pentaho, a Hitachi Group Company. “The broad resources, expertise and global presence of Hitachi Data Systems, as well as Hitachi, Ltd., has accelerated our ability to expand on our global footprint and increase the level of support we’re able to offer to our current and future customers.”

Pentaho had an early lead in understanding how emerging trends like IoT and the convergence of cloud and big data would impact enterprise IT strategies. To strengthen its enterprise capabilities for big data analytics and orchestration, Pentaho released 6.0, opened the data refinery to Amazon Redshift and Cloudera Impala™, and announced native integration with Apache Spark™ and Python, in just the last year. The company also welcomed enterprise customers like CERN, FINRA, Caterpillar Marine Asset Intelligence, and NASDAQ to discuss their big data and IoT deployments at the annual PentahoWorld customer conference.
