Pentaho’s built-in visualization tools make it possible to represent data and insights in a way that can be easily communicated across teams.
Pentaho is also supports embedding or white labeling visual analytics as part of third-party SaaS/software applications or enterprise portals as it is data agnostic, easily rebranded, customizable, and based on open standards and architecture.

Pentaho has been successfully implemented by both established businesses and startups. For example, Lufthansa, a global aviation company, needed a big data solution that would allow core processes of Inter Airline Through Check In (IATCI) to be monitored in real-time. Lufthansa implemented Pentaho’s business analytics and data integration services to streamline the process of data collection and analysis while increasing agency-wide accessibility to the data. As a result of Pentaho’s platform, Lufthansa was able to aggregate and feed data to desired locations and monitor the transfer of passenger data between airlines in real time.
