Overall Satisfaction with Pentaho

It's been used across the whole organization .

Automated reports and dashboards are some of our core usages .
  • automated reports
  • dashboards
  • data-integration
  • Big Data
  • Poor support
  • few books published in relation to Pentaho
  • Pentaho User Console could be more user friendly
As previously stated, Pentaho is an excellent tool for start ups and where CTOs are willing to invest in staff training. It may not be user friendly as Tableau or SAS, but once staff master it, development of new solutions becomes limitless.

It is not so easy to master the sharing and collaboration capabilities, however, it is highly customizable once mastered.

Drawback : Takes a bit longer to master Pentaho in relation to the leading BI solutions.
