Pentaho Software


 

Pentaho is a business intelligence system designed to help companies in any industry make data-driven decisions, with a platform for data integration and analytics. The platform includes extract, transform and load (ETL), big data integration and analytics, visualizations, dashboards, reporting, data mining and predictive analytics.

Pentaho’s data integration functionality allows users to find, manage and combine data from multiple sources, including native support for analytic databases, Hadoop and NoSQL. The system can interface with partners like Melissa Data and Human Interface. 

Pentaho is also suitable for embedding or white labeling visual analytics as part of third-party Software as a Service (SaaS)/software applications as it is data agnostic, can be rebranded, customizable and based on open standards and architecture.

This system offers interactive business analytics tools like visual analysis and dashboards, as well as flexible reporting solutions. Predictive analytics offered by the system includes machine learning algorithms, tools for processing data and the capability to import third-party models with PMML.

Pentaho helps users translate big data into insights within a singular platform. Users have access to a complete spectrum of data from different sources with the system’s adaptive big data layer, which takes the source of the data into account. Since it’s built on open architecture, any system can be integrated into Pentaho. 

Pentaho is available for a free trial in three different formats; potential buyers have a chance to fully evaluate the capabilities of the system prior to making any commitments.

Pentaho Data Integration has lot of functions to fulfill the requirements. Functions dealing with running shell script to creating and reading from Excel spreadsheets were quite useful for creating an ETL flow.

Likes Least

Requires the training to actually understand the product. It is hard to figure out several aspects like declaring variables (global) within the product.

Recommendations

Very useful for enterprises, since Pentaho provides active support in case of software issues.

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.

Likes Least

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

Recommendations

It is easier to learn from examples. Pentaho has examples with the installation.
