Pentaho / HVA Connector

Video is the most under-utilized source of data today

Videos serve as a central data source for security in public areas and for the smart optimization of infrastructures. Video technology is used in a wide variety of application scenarios and seen as a critical tool for keeping people and property safe.

However, video data is not used to its full capacity. In order to trigger predefined actions it has to be analyzed and connected to third-party data. Here the Pentaho/Hitachi Vantara Analytics Connector from it-novum comes into play.

"With their in-depth expertise in Pentaho, it-novum is one of the few global product development partners which is able to develop low-level plug-ins. Such as the Hitachi Data Connector for SAP ERP and Business Warehouse – currently the only Pentaho connector for SAP – or the connector extending Hitachi Vantara’s video solution with Pentaho analytics."

Video data only provides real added value if it is interpreted correctly – that is, analyzed and intelligently combined with information from third-party systems.

With Pentaho Data Integration and Pentaho/Hitachi Vantara Analytics Connector, users can blend video events with data from 3rd party applications to automatically trigger predefined actions based on the analysis’ results. This enables i.e. safety solution vendors to add insights to their solutions.

  1. Blending video data from any 3rd party application
  2. Reading Hitachi Video Analytics data via batch or streaming mode
  3. Supports reading data from 13 Hitachi Vantara Analytics analytical modules
