Hitachi Data Systems yesterday confirmed its acquisition of Pentaho, which will continue to act as an independent company.
HDS will use the acquisition to expand its data integration, refinement, monitoring, management, and orchestration capabilities.
Businesses using the data analytics stack can look into their data assets and analyse them to get the "Internet of Things that matter".
HDS added that it will continue to expand its footprint in the IoT, OT, M2M and big data analytics markets.
The firm confirmed plans to design solutions for the smart car, smart grid and other industries.
Kevin Eggleston, SVP of Social Innovation at HDS: "Pentaho’s data analytics, visualisation and integration platform is an integral part of our advanced analytics foundation, which is the engine that powers Hitachi Social Innovation solutions.
"We are now primed to aggressively deliver on our unified vision for Social Innovation and the full promise of the Internet of Things that matter, by bringing to market holistic and sophisticated solutions that have the power to transform our customers’ businesses and entire markets, while advancing society as a whole."
Vernon Turner, IDC’s SVP of Enterprise Systems said: "IoT isn’t just about ‘big’ data – it’s also about small data that drives big outcomes.
"The Pentaho platform provides a key unifying element that complements HDS‘ OT and IT heritage and will pave the way for new innovations in the company’s IoT, analytics, and Social Innovation solution portfolios."
HDS recently acquired oXya and Pantascene. During its Connect 2015 conference in Las Vegas in April, the company unveiled a set of IT tools for the telco, health and security markets.
