Riding a Wild Horse - Community Edition

3.0 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

5.0 2 years ago

Comments: 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.
