Worth for Money

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

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

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.
