We never used a data integration or BI platform before, and struggled with lots of Excel spreadsheets and CSV files. So when we first used Pentaho to automate a data-integration flow, we were stunned with how fast and how easy it was. We are very productive today thanks to that piece of software integration our data and the platform serving the processed data to our users.
An easier upgrade process for community tools would be nice. They also need to update the ad-hoc reports tool, as the one available is outdated. To get round this, we are using Excel as the output for some reports.
For more then 4 year
Upgrading the bi-platform that is a little pain, but the rest is easy to use and to set-up.
There have been no issues with the stability.
There have been no issues with the scalability.
We use only the community edition, so we only consult the internet for help. There is a strong community of users all over the world. Here in Brazil, the e-mail list is very helpful.
We have performed a lot of setups since we started using Pentaho, and there have been no issues there.
