Under the terms of the acquisition, Pentaho will retain its existing brand and continue to operate independently as “Pentaho, a Hitachi Data Systems company” under the leadership of its CEO, Quentin Gallivan, who will now report to Kevin Eggleston, senior vice president of Social Innovation at HDS.

Through its integration with the Pentaho platform, HDS is now extending its data integration, refinement, monitoring, management, and orchestration capabilities.

Through its 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. 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.

The company said it 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.
