What are the best aspects of this product?
I love Pentaho’s drag and drop functionality. Our company has tons of data that is not stored in an ideal manner. To get data, our employees need to create custom joins and if they do not like to work with joins, they don’t get useful data. Pentaho enables our employees to get the data they want. Another good feature is you can quickly change your data from table view to chart view and back to table view without any problems.
What aspects are problematic or could work better?
I wish visual enhancements are added to the dashboard reporting feature. I’ve used this feature only a few times, so I still don’t know how to apply a global filter to all reports in a dashboard. It would help if this tool is made more intuitive.
What specific problems in your company were solved by this product?
We are using Pentaho to surface all our data and all data users in our company will soon get to use the system. It is our main app for data access. I recommend this solution to companies that have multiple data sources.
