Pentaho Review

It's helped us with the integration of Big Data.

Valuable Features

Speed, performance and for me the best one is integration with any data type, including Big Data.

Improvements to My Organization

We wanted a tool where by using it we could integrate multiple data sets, and could get responsive reports and Pentaho helped us do this in a good way.

Room for Improvement

The presentation of data and reports. Pentaho have made a lot of improvements in the newer versions, but it's still an area of improvement when compared to other products in market.

Use of Solution

We have been using Pentaho for over four years, starting from v3.2 we are continuously upgrading to new versions. We're also using Pentaho BI server v4.8.

Deployment Issues

Pentaho BI server comes with inbuilt Tomcat container which is easy to deploy.

Stability Issues

No. So far so good.

Scalability Issues

No. So far so good.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Being a community user, most of the time we depend on forums and the kind of response we got for tricky questions was just amazing.

Previous Solutions

We were using Talend but simplicity of Pentaho attracts us and we settled on Pentaho.

Initial Setup

It was very much straightforward except at some points where we did our customizations which we had to take into account during new installations or upgrades.

Implementation Team

We implemented in-house on our own servers.

Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing

We are using the Community Edition of Pentaho.
