Most Helpful Review
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
It has improved our data integration capabilities.
Provides a good open source option.
It's very simple compared to other products out there.
Data transformation within Pentaho is a nice feature that they have and that I value.
We used it pretty heavily in gathering data, which goes to our VPs. They are able to base their next revenue planning based on this metric. So, it has been invaluable.
The ability to connect to many different data sources is one of the key features. The other would then be the different ways in which that data can be visualized.
R and automation services.
One of the main features is integrated statistical analysis.
Data discovery is very simple.
There is not a data quality or MDM solution in the Pentaho DI suite.
I could not connect to our Hadoop environment in an easy and flexible way, and it was important to scale our data warehouse.
I work with the Community Edition, therefore I do not have support. There was an issue that I could not resolve with community support.
One thing that I don't like, just a little, is the backward compatibility.
I would like to see more improvements with AS400 DB2.
We would like an easier way to get the product to the cloud. Right now, we have the on-premise version, and we would like to find a way to make it easier to migrate it over to the cloud.
I would like more easy-to-implement analytical algorithms. At the moment they include things like forecasts and regressions. They need to add a lot more of these types of things to the product because not everyone is a data scientist.
Print capability and trigger-based events.
Compared to competitors, the UI is quite dated.
The number of charts available out of the box in Spotfire can be enhanced.
Pricing and Cost Advice
There is a good open source option (Community Edition).
The Tibco sales teams have been very difficult to work with - ignoring requests, misrepresenting level of demand, etc.
