More Pentaho Data Integration Pros »

"I like the way that you can use the context variables, and how you can work those context variables to give you values and settings for every development environment, such as PROD, TEST, and DEV.""The features that I like the most are the simplicity of the interface, and the ability to quickly develop with a predefined component.""The most valuable feature is integration.""They're very competitive in terms of performance, which is a good selling point. It has very rich features. It provides a very rich feature set in the application.""The basic tools are easy to pick up and understand.""Talend Studio has the ability to connect to almost anything to integrate data from files, databases, web services, etc.""I think Talend is one of the easiest tools for faster implementation compared to other tools."

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 sync a project and do an upload from that current version, and then from GitLab, be able to download the latest one.""They lack in memory capacity.""Performance and speed could be improved.""Including either XML or JSON in the next release would definitely be a good transformation. I'm not sure if Talend has that feature, but it's one of those requirements that we are working around and have to do some parsing of XML so this could make it easier.""Once you get past the basic tools, it gets pretty complicated.""The documentation from version to version could be more accurate.""The stability is good, but the performance is slower when I work on a huge amount of data."

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.

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?
