Business Analytics Platform
Pentaho’s modern, simplified, and interactive approach empowers business users to access, discover and blend any data types regardless of their size. With a full spectrum of increasingly advanced analytics tools, from basic reports to predictive modeling, users can help themselves to analyze and visualize data across multiple measures and dimensions without being dependent on IT.
Pentaho’s Data Integration, also known as Kettle, delivers powerful extraction, transformation, and loading (ETL) capabilities. You can use this stand-alone application to visually design transforms and jobs that extract your existing data and make it available for easy reporting and analysis.
The Report Designer is a graphical tool that generates reports from data streamed through the Data Integration engine without the need for any intermediate staging tables. You can output your reports in several formats, including PDF, Excel, HTML, rich-text-file, XML. and CSV.
The Schema Workbench is a visual design interface that allows you to create and test Mondrian OLAP cube schemas. You can present your data multi-dimensionally and let users select which dimensions and measures to explore, interactively drilling into cross-tabulating data.
Metadata Editor is a tool that simplifies your experience when creating reports, and allows you to build metadata domains and relational data models.
