We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"It has a very friendly user interface. You don't need to use a lot of code. For us that's the most important aspect about it. Also, it has a lot of connectors and few forms. It has a strong facial aspect. It can do a lot of facial analysis."
"The solution has a free to use community version."
"The amount of data that it loads and processes is good."
"Pentaho Data Integration is quite simple to learn, and there is a lot of information available online."
"It's my understanding that the product can scale."
"To get a higher rating, it would have to improve the price and the associated scalability. These are the main issues."
"It's not very stable, at least not in the case of the community edition. I'm working with the community edition right now and I think perhaps it is because of that it is not very stable, it causes the system to sometimes hang. I'm not sure if this is the case for pair tiers."
"I would like to see improvements made for real-time data processing."
"I'm still in the very recent stage concerning Pentaho Data Integration, but it can't really handle what I describe as "extreme data processing" i.e. when there is a huge amount of data to process. That is one area where Pentaho is still lacking."
"The product needs more plugins."
"The price of the regular version is not reasonable and it should be lower."
"Sometimes we provide the licenses or the customer can procure their own licenses. Previously, we had an enterprise license. Currently, we are on a community license as this is adequate for our needs."
