Pentaho Data Integration Review

Integration between databases and data import for a BI solution is valuable.

What is most valuable?

Data transformation within Pentaho is a nice feature that they have and that I value.

How has it helped my organization?

Integration between databases and data import for a BI solution.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see more improvements with AS400 DB2. I journalled the tables/instance and the data migration is too slow if I compare it with other databases.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

There were no issues with the deployment.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Until now, the stability of Pentaho is great. I've already tested various scenarios and I didn't feel a loss of performance.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

There have been no issues so far in scaling the product.

How was the initial setup?

I used self-learning to implement it and found that the tool is very easy to understand. For some things, I looked at YouTube videos for conceptual ideas during the planning phase.

What about the implementation team?

I did it myself.
