    Product(s): Pentaho Data Integration

    Implementation was very easy with the solution partners

    Overall Comment

    They have a very good solution for Data Integration, but Hitachi must focus on the commercial strategy.

    What one piece of advice would you give other prospective customers?

    Select carefuly the partner. Hitachi does not have expertise in the solution, so you can deploy the solution using a partner o learning by yourself.

    What do you like most about the product or service?

    The ease to deploy and extend.

    What do you dislike most about the product?

    Hitachi has bought pentaho a few months ago. They don't now the solution.

    What one thing do you wish the vendor did differently?

    Know deeply the product, and have technical support without partners.

    If you could start over, what would your organization do differently?

    Nothing.

    Service & support - overall comment

    The partner did an excellent job.

    Product(s): Pentaho Data Integration

    Very easy install for windows. Fairly quick start to running time.

    Overall Comment

    While the server manual install is a little young, the support for it was excellent.

    What one thing do you wish the vendor did differently?

    Create a apt-get or yum repository. this would help to streamline the server install process

    If you could start over, what would your organization do differently?

    Use the prepackaged installer to install the server on a linux environment. set up all 3 environments very seperately and create data connections for all 3.

    Product capabilities - overall comment

    the product performs as advertised.

    Service & support - overall comment

    Product(s): Pentaho Data Integration

    Good data integration tool for limited budget.

    Overall Comment

    For cost, it seems like a good option. Although the technical documentation makes if difficult to deploy yourself unless you only plan to use the vendor's wizards.

    What do you like most about the product or service?

    Affordable replacement for our legacy ETL software.

    What do you dislike most about the product?

    Unless paying for vendor implementation, basic support pretty much leaves you on your own to figure things out the best you can.

    What one thing do you wish the vendor did differently?

    Provide better documentation for customer-staffed deployments that cannot use the defaults from the wizards.

    If you could start over, what would your organization do differently?

    Perform a more comprehensive POC before purchase.

    Service & support - overall comment

    Had some issues receiving help we needed during manual installation.
