Communiqué de presse   •   juin 12, 2015 15:51 CEST

Avec l’intégration à son catalogue des technologies Pentaho en matière de traitement des données et de visualisation, HDS se positionne comme leader sur le marché de l’analytique de l’Internet des Objets (IoT) et du Big Data.

SANTA CLARA, CA – Juin 04, 2015 – Hitachi Data Systems Corporation (HDS), filiale à 100% d’Hitachi, Ltd. (TSE: 6501), annonce qu’elle a finalisé l’acquisition de Pentaho, leader sur l’intégration des données, la visualisation et l’analytique. Aux termes de l'accord, Pentaho devient une filiale à 100% d’Hitachi Data Systems mais continuera d’exister selon le même modèle économique, de façon indépendante, sous la direction de son PDG, Quentin Gallivan, qui reportera à Kevin Eggleston, senior vice-président de l'Innovation sociale chez HDS. La plate-forme Pentaho, qui continue d'être offerte de façon indépendante, vient enrichir le portefeuille HDS de technologies analytiques du Big Data et de gestion de l’information.

HDS is a rapidly emerging global leader in the Internet of Things (IoT), operational technology,
big data and machine-to-machine (M2M) analytics. Its big data analytics solutions help
organizations transform vast quantities of structured and unstructured data from disparate
sources into knowledge through the application of advanced data analytics, connected
intelligence from IoT devices, and operational technologies (OT). Through its integration with the
Pentaho platform, HDS is now extending its data integration, refinement, monitoring,
management, and orchestration capabilities to deliver an incomparably sophisticated data
analytics stack. This stack powers its Social Innovation solutions and delivers on the full promise
of the “Internet of Things that matter,” by helping businesses to derive rich insights from their
data with faster time to value, and supporting the development of smarter, safer, healthier and
more efficient societies.

“IoT isn’t just about ‘big’ data – it’s also about small data that drives big outcomes,” said Vernon
Turner, IDC senior vice president of Enterprise Systems and IDC Fellow for The Internet of
Things. “Hitachi Data Systems recognizes that distinction, and is building a robust analytics
framework that uniquely combines Hitachi’s formidable industrial, societal and business
expertise with its rich portfolio of data infrastructure and analytics solutions. The Pentaho
platform provides a key unifying element that complements HDS’ OT and IT heritage and will
pave the way for new innovations in the company’s IoT, analytics, and Social Innovation solution
portfolios.”

Through its strategic acquisitions of oXya, Pantascene and Pentaho, HDS is accelerating its
Social Innovation vision and IoT product roadmap. At its Connect 2015 conference in Las Vegas
in April 2015, HDS unveiled new Social Innovation solutions and services, including Hitachi Live
Insight for IT Operations, Hitachi Clinical Repository for Connected Health, and Hitachi Live
Insight Center of Excellence, and delivered updates to its existing solutions for the public safety
and telecommunications industries. HDS and Pentaho also recently delivered a new Hitachi
Unified Compute Platform (UCP) solution for SAP HANA that enables developers to process and
refine big data from any source, at scale.
Melding its existing capabilities in real-time, time-series and predictive analytics together with
Pentaho's data visualization, integration and analysis technologies, HDS has enriched the
advanced analytics foundation software that powers its Social Innovation solutions and is poised
to deliver on its vision of a new generation of smart businesses and societies. The company will
continue to aggressively expand its footprint in the IoT, OT, M2M and big data analytics markets,
with plans to introduce new solutions for connected cars, connected energy and other industries,
which leverage the expertise and the full breadth of products, services and industries served by
the Hitachi family of companies.

“We are delighted to officially welcome Pentaho to the Hitachi family. Their data analytics,
visualization and integration platform is an integral part of our advanced analytics foundation,
which is the engine that powers Hitachi Social Innovation solutions,” said Eggleston. “We are
now primed to aggressively deliver on our unified vision for Social Innovation and the full
promise of the Internet of Things that matter, by bringing to market holistic and sophisticated
solutions that have the power to transform our customers’ businesses and entire markets, while
advancing society as a whole.”
