iStockphoto Deploys Pentaho


ORLANDO, Fla. - Pentaho Corp., creator of the world’s most popular open source business intelligence suite, has announced that iStockphoto has deployed Pentaho for business intelligence. iStockphoto takes advantage of Pentaho’s popular and affordable subscription support model to address key business needs in the areas of data integration and reporting, and enlisted the skills of Pentaho Certified Partner OpenBI to deliver consulting and training services as part of the deployment.

iStockphoto, the world’s most visited online stock photography marketplace, was created to meet designers’ needs for high-quality, royalty-free stock images at affordable prices. iStockphoto started the micro-payment phenomenon, allowing anyone to purchase images for as little as a dollar each. With 35,000 contributing artists, a community of more than 1.5 million, and 20,000 new images added weekly, iStockphoto has become an addictive destination for creative professionals.

iStockphoto uses Pentaho Data Integration to address their Extract, Transform, and Load (ETL) needs, integrating data from different transaction systems into a data warehouse. They also use Pentaho Reporting to deliver regular sales reports to key users across the company. Together, these capabilities help iStock maintain a timely view of top- and bottom-line results. With access to the technical experts in Pentaho Customer Support, iStock can use the system with confidence and security knowing that they have a committed partner in their ongoing success with Pentaho’s best-in-class open source BI technology. The application is deployed on a Linux server, pulling information from a MySQL database, using a JBoss application server.

“Pentaho provided a robust, open source platform for our sales reporting application, and the ongoing support we needed,” said Ken Paulson, Developer/Programmer, Business Intelligence at iStockphoto. “The experts at OpenBI provided outstanding services and training, and allowed us to deploy and start generating results very quickly.”

“Professional open source BI is making world-class technology and professional support available to organizations large and small,” said Lance Walter, VP of Marketing for Pentaho. “Pentaho professional support allows our customers to lean on the expertise of the Pentaho team to get the most value and the lowest risk as they realize success with open source BI.”
