    Pros
    Great analytics and results are very useful. Provides good insight of the business.
    Personally I think it is a very powerful tool, powerful, very robust and also free.
    Really helps to solve complex business solutions with its cool features and like their contribution to open source.
    Cons
    Lack of detailed comments in error messages. It does not have documentation in Spanish language.
    Interface is not intuitive. If you want to solve the problem by yourself there is no much information how to do that even with a very small problems.
    Other report designers will offer time saving features that are missing here.

    Riding a Wild Horse - Community Edition

    Reviewed 7 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.

    Pentaho a Flexible System

    Reviewed 2 years ago

    Pentaho has been a great product for our agency. We have generated hundreds of customized reports. End users are able to pull reports directly out of our E.H.R.

    Pros

    Pentaho allows for great flexibility in report writing. It provides access to data tables with limited restrictions. It is highly customizable.

    Cons

    While the system does offer Wizard tools this is not a product for beginner level report writers. It is best used by someone with at least basic SQL training.
