Comments: It's a great platform, congratulations ... is the only one compatible with the bank I use, only a more robust documentation is missing.

Pros: The only BI software that is compatible with Firebird SQL, I have not found any other compatible BI.

Pros: Many 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.

Cons: Many 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.

Pros: Pentaho 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.

Cons: When 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.

Comments: Pentaho features pixel-perfect reporting, subreports, parameterized reports, and OLAP. The OLAP tools let you perform ad-hoc views, reports, and views through MDX queries. Pentaho puts more effort into data integration, ETL, and workflow automation.

Pros: · Very powerful integrated tools · Better user interface · Best report design wizard · Fastest growth and improvement · Better dashboard capabilities

Cons: · Doesn¿t seem to have a wizard for creating charts · Weaker support community

Pros: I 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.

Cons: Occasionally, Pentaho Spoon (GUI) crashes, and a restart is required.

Recommendations to other buyers: It is easier to learn from examples. Pentaho has examples with the installation.
