I’m at the MongoNYC conference in New York today, where Pentaho is a sponsor. 10gen have done a great job with this event, and they have 1,000 attendees at the event.
We just announced a strategic partnership between 10gen and Pentaho. From a technical perspective the integration between MongoDB and Pentaho means:
- No Big Silos. Data silos are bad. Big ones are no better. Our MongoDB ETL connectors for reading and writing data mean you can integrate your MongoDB data store with the rest of your data architecture (relational databases, hosted applications, custom applications, etc).
- Live reporting. We can provide desktop and web-based reports directly on MongoDB data
- Staging. We can provide trending and historical analysis by staging snapshots of MongoDB aggregations in a column store.
I’m looking forward to working with 10gen to integrate some of their new aggregation capabilities into Pentaho.
