The Pentaho BI Project is Open Source application software for enterprise reporting, analysis, dashboard, data mining, workflow and ETL capabilities for Business Intelligence (BI) needs.


Pentaho, headquartered in Orlando, Florida, USA was founded in 2004 by a team of Business Intelligence (BI) industry veterans with a track record of delivering successful BI products for leading commercial vendors including Business Objects, Cognos, Hyperion, IBM, Oracle Corporation, and SAS Institute. Pentaho’s goal has been to transform the BI industry by delivering better products, better service, and better value than the last generation of proprietary BI vendors.

The Pentaho brand has been built to help unify and message a suite of open source projects to provide a commercial open source alternative for Business Intelligence over more costly solutions offered by proprietary software BI vendors. This unification has helped to grow the Pentaho Community and provide a centralized place for contributors, customers, and partners to collaborate.


Pentaho projects are a unification of various pillars often found in a BI stack:

* Pentaho Reporting JFreeReport
* Pentaho Data Integration Kettle ETL
* Pentaho Analysis Mondrian OLAP Server
* Pentaho Data Mining Weka (machine learning)
* Pentaho Dashboards Pentaho Dashboards

Business Model

Pentaho offers enterprise editions allowing the deployment of their open source BI suite. They market this edition with a focus on helping businesses:

* Achieve BI success
* Save time, resources, and money
* Mitigate risks found with non commercial open source offerings

Doing so at a far lower total cost of ownership than proprietary alternatives. Pentaho Enterprise Editions also provide additional capabilities including professional technical support, software maintenance updates, enhanced functionality, certified software, and product expertise, often not found in non commercial open source companies.
