“ETL on the fly”

ProsDrag and drop functionality makes it easy to create transformations. Able to analyse data from multiple sources quickly and efficiently. Jobs can be scheduled in order to run specific tasks and transformations at a certain time.
ConsCan take some time to figure out how to use it as there are lots of components involved. Can be a bit slow or run into out of memory issues for bigger queries but upping the virtual memory in the configuration can fix this issue.

“Saves me not only hours, but DAYS”

ProsPentaho has nice schema browsing features whereby one not need know anything about the underlying schema in order to design a transformation. Automatic multi-threading by default.
ConsWhen outputting to a table, Talend has an option to Drop if exists, and create. Pentaho has a Truncate [prior to load], but no option create the table as part of the data flow nor an option to drop an existing table.

“Pentaho Review”

ProsOnce you understand the basics of this program it is easy to use. The bonus with this program is that if someone write a report, they can share the script with you. The updated 6.1 version is definitely an improvement.
ConsIf you are not at all familiar with writing script, this program can be very challenging. No real user manuals are included.

“I love the out of the box visualization templates!”

“Gives me the ability to use clicks instead of code. ”

ProsPenatho brings a visual interface to processes which would traditionally only be accomplished by many, many lines of code (which it can also do). Many powerful inputs from servers, software, and CRM systems. It also has very detailed error handling, which makes it easy to troubleshoot.
ConsSupport is mostly wiki/community based, with instructions for particular steps being lacking, outdated, or missing completely. Outputs could be simplified as well, with even a basic CSV output being slightly more complex than it should be, compared to other steps.

“Riding a Wild Horse - Community Edition”

ProsMany features. I like to use the reporting PRD, I think that it is the best. I use Spoon/Kettle that is a ETL tool to process data.
ConsMany bugs. Maybe is because of Community Edition. We have many difficult to install in cloud. The layout of some report that run in developing, don't run in production.

“Pentaho is a user-friendly open source ETL tool”

ProsI like its ease of use; it is very easy to build an ETL pipeline after the initial learning curve. I also like the variety of modules. There are a lot of powerful modules, and you will mostly find the module you want. User-defined code is very flexible; it's possible and very easy to plug in user-defined Java code. When there is no module implemented for desired function, this feature comes handy. Multithreading is also easy. The transformation can be set to run multiple copies in parallel.
ConsOccasionally, Pentaho Spoon (GUI) crashes, and a restart is required.
Recommendations to other buyersIt is easier to learn from examples. Pentaho has examples with the installation.

“Pentaho is amazing...”

OverallIt's a great platform, congratulations ... is the only one compatible with the bank I use, only a more robust documentation is missing.
ProsThe only BI software that is compatible with Firebird SQL, I have not found any other compatible BI.
ConsParticularly I found it difficult to start learning, the documentation regarding the data integration (spoon) is scarce.

“I love this tool, because it has minimized data preparation time by filtering the most interesting d”

OverallRepresents the solution to meet the needs of extraction, manipulation, validation and data loading from multiple sources of origin and in different environments can solve many problems. For the creation of the Dimensions Tables. Transformation of these data and Upload of that data in another site.
ProsIt allows to extract the information from an OLTP database, transform the information through a dimensional model and load the results of the transformation into a database to develop specialized reports which Pentaho also has. It includes tools to perform queries, generate reports and reports, interactive analysis, dashboards, extraction, transformation and data loading, data integration.
Cons It requires a large investment, because its correct implementation is not an easy task and these systems consume many resources.

“PDI Community Edition is amazing.....the rest is mud”

Pros- Free PDI tool....its free so no discussions with finance - PDI is actually very effective ETL application with a easy to understand flow - Community is actually helpful
Cons- Free BI tool is just slightly easier than building a website from scratch but a lot harder than using any other BI tool. - You need to know how to hack java to use. - The paid version does not have competitive pricing for the incremental value.

“Pentaho is integrated set of tools for business intelligence ”

OverallI have transformed multiple databases from different sources and formats into one single format and recognizable database set. After single database operation, I need to summarize report for that purpose i used Pentaho report designer tool to summarize and design report.
ProsData in Pentaho can be easily import from nearly any type of source including .csv, excel etc to create single report.
ConsPentaho itself is too much resource hungry as compared to other BI softwares. Configuration after installation is required that will be difficult for non-techies.

“Limited flexibility and subpar UI”

ProsEase of install I suppose; that and its ease of uploading reports into our EHR.
ConsFlexibility is limited. Other report designers will offer time saving features that are missing here. Having to manually create queries instead of having a UI do it for you ( a la Crystal Reports) is a huge time sink. Using the Report Designer locks you into appearance constraints and removing them is a pain.
