We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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."
"The monitoring is one of the greatest features in Process Orchestration because it is user-friendly and easy for somebody who is not experienced."
"The solution provides very good and central logging systems. It offers high flexibility with vertical and horizontal extend capacity."
"The product has good technical support but you usually will not need it because it is quite stable."
"The initial setup is easy."
"The most valuable feature is the seamless integration with backend systems."
"Great monitoring tools and has its own alert framework."
"The standard adapter with EBA abilities is the most valuable feature. It has good process integration."
"With the latest version what I find to be the most valuable are the REST, SuccessFactors, and Ariba Network adapters."
"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 responsiveness of technical support needs to be improved."
"In terms of technical support, it would be helpful if they handled the tickets a bit faster when queries are sent to them."
"The monitoring governance offered by SAP is too technical and needs to be geared more toward business users."
"It does not have all of the industry-standard solutions available in PO and it is not plug and play, so we have to do a lot of development."
"The older version of the solution will no longer be supported."
"The cloud capability features need improvement."
"I feel that support is an area that needs improvement. They need to improve the response time and address the customer's issues as soon as possible."
"The usability is an area where it can be improved upon."
"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."
"The cost of SAP products is quite high but the quality is really good."
"The pricing for this solution is fine."
"There are fees in addition to the licensing."
"It's not an expensive solution."
