NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - October 12, 2010) -  Hadoop World - Pentaho Corporation, the open source business intelligence (BI) and data integration leader, today announced a partnership with Impetus Technologies, an award-winning software product engineering and professional services company, serving customers ranging from aggressive startups to large technology companies, to develop innovative software products and solutions. The partnership enables Impetus to be recognized as a Pentaho Authorized Partner and encourages technical collaboration between the two companies as Impetus incorporates both the Pentaho Agile BI initiative and Pentaho for Hadoop into its Large Data Analytics practice.

The partnership coincides with the release of Pentaho for Hadoop, the first complete, end-to-end data integration and BI Suite for Hadoop.

As part of its high performance computing practice (HPC) area, Impetus works on both large data management and complex computing problems. The Impetus Large Data Analytics practice offers expert consulting services and best practices support in Hadoop implementations and other commercial massively parallel databases, including R&D, assessment, deployment (on private and public clouds) and optimizations for enhanced static shared data implementations.

Pentaho and Impetus will work closely together to expedite the adoption process of Hadoop and Pentaho technologies, helping enterprises to move quickly from proof-of-concept and evaluation projects to pilot and full-production deployments. The companies will also engage in joint marketing activities to further drive awareness and adoption of Pentaho and Impetus technology and services solutions.
