Pentaho and the R Project.

Posted under BI Server, Open Source, Pentaho, R

I’m not sure if everyone is aware of this as the recording was released last year but the team at OpenBI have been able to integrate R and Pentaho Business Intelligence Server. The screen cast, which you can view here, was demoed with version 2.0 of the server but I don’t see why it wouldn’t work with version 3.5 (correct me if I’m wrong). The screen cast goes into detail on how the connection between Pentaho and R-Project works and what packages/libraries you will need to get it setup and running.

For those of you who don’t know:

R is a free software environment for statistical computing and graphics. It compiles and runs on a wide variety of UNIX platforms, Windows and MacOS

Along with Weka, R is definitely a tool that I believe all analysts should have handy when performing statistical related tasks.

    Thanks a lot for bringing this up! I was actually searching for this video. I do remember that last year we received a newsletter about this topic. This then made me curious about R and just about one week ago I purchased a book about R. It looks pretty interesting so far.

    It would be cool too, if this R Pentaho integration would be open source.

    Have you worked out something like that?

    Best regards,
