Pentaho Review

Easy to install, easy to use, the free edition meets our needs


What is most valuable?

Easy to use components to create the job.

What needs improvement?

  • Logging capability.
  • Version control would be a good addition.

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

A lot of time jobs get stuck, causing them to lock out and fail to run, until we kill them.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I  have not needed to scale this product so far.

How is customer service and technical support?

Open community, you can find good responses at a high level for the free edition. I have not used the commercial version which includes support.

Which solutions did we use previously?

This is first solution I have used and I like it.

How was the initial setup?

Simple, easy to install.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Free and commercial versions are available.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We did not evaluate other options as this one is free.

What other advice do I have?

Good for any size organization. There are other products and vendors available to better handle errors and logging, but for us, the free version of Pentaho is good enough to satisfy our needs.
