Pentaho - Open Source Business Intelligence

www.pentaho.org The Pentaho BI Project provides enterprise-class reporting, analysis, dashboard, data mining and workflow capabilities that help organizations operate more efficiently and effectively. The software offers flexible deployment options that enable use as embeddable components, customized BI application solutions, and as a complete out-of-the-box, integrated BI platform.

"An exciting development... the Pentaho BI Project is not only impressive in the depth of capabilities it covers, it also breaks new ground in linking business process management with performance management – effectively closing the loop between key business metrics and the business processes that drive them." Ventana Research

The Pentaho BI Project is an ongoing initiative by the Open Source community to provide organizations with best-in-class solutions for their enterprise Business Intelligence (BI) needs. By leveraging the wealth of Open Source technologies and the contributions of the Open Source development community we are able to innovate much faster than commercial vendors. As a result, our goal is not only to provide an Open Source alternative, but to surpass all commercial offerings in terms of features, functions, and benefits. In other words, we don't expect you to adopt it simply because it's open, we expect that you will choose it because it's better.
