Web-based metrics and interactive online analytical processing analysis to analyze information at any level of detail
Nutricia North America, a division of Group Danone and engaged in infant and clinical nutrition, has deployed the Pentaho BI Suite in production running on the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud, a web service.
Pentaho said that the suite was implemented by the company’s partner OpenBI. This application integrates data from disparate systems to provide analytical insight across Nutricia’s product lines, customers, and geographies.
According to Pentaho, Nutricia deployed its commercial open source business intelligence (BI) suite to provide dashboard, data integration, and analysis capabilities. The suite featured standardized web-based metrics and interactive online analytical processing analysis to allow business users to analyze information at any level of detail.
Pentaho also said that Nutricia integrated its on-site Sage MAS90, Microsoft SQL Server data with the cloud-based implementation of Pentaho and the MySQL database on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2). Nutricia has considered traditional hosting environments, but the Amazon cloud environment offered flexibility in pricing, capacity, and on-demand scalability.
Steve Miller, president of OpenBI, said: We see open source BI in the cloud as a solution for companies who want to embrace modern technologies with minimal upfront and ongoing capital expenditure. Pentaho, MySQL, and Amazon show that BI alternatives are available even while IT budgets are being squeezed.
