Enterprise software vendor Pentaho has launched a new platform designed to help businesses manage and analyse data.
The company said that Pentaho Enterprise Data Services Suite can collect and manage data from multiple sources for use with business intelligence tools.
The suite features 150 mapping objects, and includes support for Hadoop, the open source framework designed to manage large-scale systems.
Offered as an on-premise or web-based service, Enterprise Data Services supports locally-based systems as well as data stored in cloud computing platforms.
The result is a tool that can streamline the collection, analysis and presentation of business data, according to Pentaho chief executive Richard Daley.
"The capabilities of the Enterprise Data Services make Pentaho a more cost-effective alternative for the vast majority of cloud and data integration deployments," he said.
"Organisations continue to flock to Pentaho because we can deploy enterprise-class data integration solutions much more quickly and for significantly less cost than old-school proprietary alternatives."
Pentaho offers Enterprise Data Services as part of its Data Integration 4.1 and BI Suite 3.7 releases for Windows and Linux systems.
