Probably the coolest part of all is that you can use visual programming (or metadata based programming if you will) to get your integration work done with a multitude of data platforms ranging from flat files over relational database to NoSQL, big data and big search clusters. For the very first time we're also offering easy visual programming for Hadoop and MapReduce. Migrating data, exporting, importing, querying and reporting has never been as simple and accessible as it is today.
Because words are cheap please make sure to check out the videos posted at the bottom of our Big Data community landing page.
That page is also where you can download our Kettle Big Data preview package to get you started right away.
