    SM

    Sumant M.

    A very well designed platform, of great cost benefit, as well as the integration and reports, even better than when we analyze the costs.

    JF

    Juan Felipe M.

    Higher visual interface to processes, has a good number of functions (and very easy to understand) for data reporting, integration, data mining and ETL. Very simple but effective Big data transform.

    FF

    Cons
    Lack of detailed comments in error messages. It does not have documentation in Spanish language.

    The bugs are usually not so easy to solve, and the errors shown sometimes don't give you a clue of what is wrong.

    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.

    Worth for Money

    Reviewed 2 months ago

    I was using both PDI(data integration) and PRD(report designer) tool for my internal project. Totally enjoyed and satisfied with my experience.

    Pros

    Best Pricing tier in industry, excellent Data Integration across the database nodes and high consistency in service.

    Cons

    Limitation in feature, customer support is not quick and data loading strategy could have improved a bit. Apart from these, everything is great.

    Riding a Wild Horse - Community Edition

    Reviewed 5 years ago
    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.

    Best Tool for Reporting and Data Integration

    Reviewed 2 months ago
    Pros

    Pentaho is user friendly, having high data consistency and integration with different database is cool for developers.

    Cons

    Report designer is having dashboard limitations and dynamic processing of data into report from database is not fast when data is huge. Apart from that, pentaho is life saver for developers.
