TIDAL is making big waves in the music business as the first artist-owned streaming service. TIDAL uses Pentaho for all its big data analytics and reporting needs, including tracking each stream, compensating copyright owners based on a complex collection of contracts and agreements, and providing artists with an on-demand dashboard report of how and where their music is being consumed. The company estimates that Pentaho paid for itself in manpower and design time in only six to eight months. TIDAL uses the full Pentaho platform to its max and sees no limits to its big data analytics capabilities.

A wide range of people use the system ranging from distributors (e.g., Comcast) to content providers (e.g., Disney) to various business roles (e.g., IT operations, ad sales, traffickers).

The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Inc. (FINRA) is a private self-regulatory organization (SRO) and the largest independent regulator for all US-based securities firms. FINRA estimates that it stores and monitors several trillion historical records in the U.S. equities, options and fixed income markets and adds 75 billion new ones every business day. Finding the right data ‘needles’ in this growing ‘haystack’ is a huge challenge that would normally compromise productivity. FINRA overcame this by embedding Pentaho Analyzer into its analyst-facing application for interactive data exploration, running on Amazon Web Services’ highly available cloud infrastructure. Now, FINRA’s analysts create private data marts on demand, resulting in soaring productivity.
CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, is one of the world's largest and most respected centers for scientific research. CERN’s Advanced Information Services (AIS) group has embarked on an enterprise-wide deployment to embed Pentaho into internal applications, to help optimize all of the operational groups responsible for running the world’s largest particle physics laboratory. When the project goes live at year-end 2015, CERN’s community of 15,000+ users will benefit from a single, 360-degree view of all native operational data along with analytics and self-service reports.
