"This is an established product with powerful data analysis and varied options for user entry points.""The solution is very stable. We haven't faced any issues with glitches or bugs. We haven't had any crashes.""If you compare it to SQL, the memory and development times are very quick.""The technical support is excellent.""In terms of which features I have found most valuable, I would say the importing and exporting features. Additionally, the data sorting, categorizing and summarizing features, especially how it can summarize based on categories. These are the key features.""The product offers very good flexibility."

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."

"Very little needs to improve but perhaps a nicer graphic interface and remaining competetive in the growing field of data analytics.""The pricing of the solution needs to be improved. They need to work to make it more affordable.""We find we often have to go back and re-train users when there are changes made to the solution because the changes are not intuitive.""With SAS Data Management, you have to purchase an external driver, configure all of the tables for all of the data that you will extract from Salesforce. It's not a straightforward process.""One problem is accessing the data using a solution other than SAS. The SAS data, which we create in the SAS, cannot be accessed by other tools. We can't open those data in other applications. So we need to have that application in place.""The solution could use better documentation."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"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."

"While it is even free for personal use on the cloud, it can be expensive for desktop installations and enterprise use."
