Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"All ETL code is stored in repositories in underlying database schemas. The number of users can access and work on the same solution using a client tool. So distributed teams can work on this tool in an efficient manner.""The scalability is great. It's one of the reasons we chose the solution."

"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."

More Pentaho Data Integration Pros »

Cons
"There are certain things where it can be improved. Initial solution setup seems a bit complex at the start, it should be improved because it becomes bit tough for a novice to get started on this. Sometimes error description is not helpful to understand the problem it gives some generic type of errors which are at times not that helpful to understand the underlying root cause of the issue.""The resource management aspect of the solution could be improved."

More Oracle Data Integrator (ODI) Cons »

"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."

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
"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."

There are two products I know about
* TimeXtender : Microsoft based, Transformation logic is quiet good and can easily be extended with T-SQL , Has a semantic layer that generates metat data for cubes . price approx 40K$, works with tables
. Attunity (Bought by Qlik) : technology agnostic , nice web interface , expensive > 100K€. Works with transaction logs

There are many other pure ETL tools
* ERWIN has a nice one ,

We have experiences only in Pentaho Data Integrator (open source competitor of the Oracle Data Integrator).
But OLAP exporting wasn't in our scope until now.

We usually use Talend.

Depends upon the technologies being used. If you're using Oracle for both OLTP and OLAP then you'll get a lot of value from an Oracle solution.


The other question is how up to date do you want your OLAP DB to be? Goldengate is a good answer if you're looking to minimize latency, but it can be expensive. ODI is less expensive but better suited to bulkier data sets.  If an Oracle product wasn't the option I'd probably consider something like Informatica.

Hi Karoly, Thanks for your input. community: https://forums.pentaho.com/ is not allowing new registrations for new users. I guess they accept queries from customers only and not from any one. Do you know any other forum, community, SMEs contacts who can help on queries?

Hi Karoly,

Thanks for your response !!!
Is Pentaho Data Integrator available as freeware/open source tool? Does it come in basic, standard and enterprise editions flavors?

It integrates data from various heterogeneous systems like multiple variety of databases (SQL server, Oracle, DB2 etc), files (XML, XLS, CSV, text etc)? Targets can be any type of DB , file etc.?

What all flavors available like Basic, Standard, Enterprise editions? All editions are free/ open source?
