Blending Cassandra Data Into The Mix

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Traditionally, data is delivered to business analytics tools through a relational database. However, there are cases where that can be inconvenient, for example when the volume of data is just too high or when you can’t wait until the database tables are updated.

This presentation by Pentaho Kettle founder Matt Casters will demonstrate a solution of data 'Blending', which allows a data integration user to create a transformation capable of delivering data directly to Pentaho - and other - business analytics tools. Matt will demonstrate taking data from Cassandra, and blending it with other data from both SQL and NoSQL sources, and then visualizing that data. Matt will explain how it becomes possible to create a virtual “database” with “tables” where the data actually comes from a transformation step.

I have been an independent BI consultant for many years and implemented numerous data warehouses and BI solutions for large companies. For the last 7 years I have been very busy writing an ETL tool called Kettle. This tool was open sourced in December 2005 and acquired by Pentaho Open Source BI early in 2006. As such I’m now Chief Data Integration for Pentaho mainly doing lead development for Kettle a.k.a. Pentaho Data Integration.
