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. This Technical Whitepaper describes Pentaho’s architecture and technical advantages.

The Pentaho BI Project encompasses the following major application areas

  • Reporting
  • Analysis
