Open Source Big Data Reporting & ETL show promises


With Hadoop/Hbase/Hive, Cassandra, etc. you can store and manipulate peta-bytes of data. But what if you want to get nice looking reports or compare data held in a NoSQL solution with data held elsewhere? There have been two market leaders in the Open Source business intelligence space that are putting all their firepower onto Big Data now.

Pentaho Big Data seems to be a bit further ahead. They offer a graphical ETL tool, a report designer and a business intelligence server. These are existing tools but support for Hadoop HDFS, Map-Reduce, Hbase, Hive, Pig, Cassandra, etc. have been added.

Jaspersoft’s Open Source Big Data strategy is a little bit behind because connectors are not included yet into the main product and several are still in beta quality and with missing documentation.

Both companies will accelerate the adoption of big data since the main problem with Big Data is easy reporting. Unstructured data is harder to format into a very structured report than structured data. Any solutions that will make this possible and additionally are Open Source are very welcome in times of cost cutting…

    Hi,

    You can check Crux for reporting data with HBase. Crux is open sourced at https://github.com/sonalgoyal/crux and provides a drag and drop intuitive gui to natively interface with Hbase and create reports.
