Pentaho Data Integration Review

​It is extremely flexible, it allows you to use variables/parameters for just about everything. ​


Valuable Features:

It is extremely flexible, it allows you to use variables/parameters for just about everything. 

Improvements to My Organization:

It enables us to automate our reporting and ETL to a very high extent.

Room for Improvement:

The product itself is great, the biggest downside in my opinion is that it is hard to find (hire) people with expertise. Our experience with Pentaho software is that few people have the required expertise. Hiring additional resources for projects can be tough.

Our solution is that we tend to train our own people, it’s definitely not hard to learn, basically anyone with SQL knowledge and experience in another tool can learn using Pentaho Data Integration very easily, but you might end up training them yourselves.


Deployment Issues:

We had no issues with the deployment.

Stability Issues:

There was no issues with the stability.

Scalability Issues:

We had no issues scaling it for our needs.

Other Advice:

Train your own people!
