Splunk, which specializes in collecting and indexing massive volumes of machine-generated data, and open source data integration and data visualization specialist Pentaho are joining forces in an effort to unlock the power of machine-generated data—and data from other sources—for business users.
The idea, says Eddie White, executive vice president of business development for Pentaho, is to allow business intelligence (BI) analysts and other business users to combine machine-generated data from Splunk—data from websites, applications, servers, storage, network, mobile and other devices like system sensors—with data from other data sources like RDBMS, Hadoop, NoSQL and enterprise application data. Business users can then use Pentaho’s advanced data visualization capabilities to visualize the data and gain actionable insights.
“Users can download Pentaho Business Analytics for Splunk Enterprise from Splunkbase to be able to combine Splunk machine data with a variety of other traditional Pentaho data sources,” White says.
