    Pentaho has been a great product for our agency. We have generated hundreds of customized reports. End users are able to pull reports directly out of our E.H.R.

    Pros

    Pentaho allows for great flexibility in report writing. It provides access to data tables with limited restrictions. It is highly customizable.

    Cons

    While the system does offer Wizard tools this is not a product for beginner level report writers. It is best used by someone with at least basic SQL training.
