Welcome to the Pentaho Community wiki. This wiki contains documentation and information for the Pentaho Open Source BI Suite Community Edition (CE). The suite includes ETL, OLAP analysis, metadata, data mining, reporting, dashboards and a platform that allows you to create complex solutions to business problems. The Pentaho community is an extraordinary group of people with many different talents who are dedicated to delivering a complete, well integrated, and high quality suite of business intelligence software. By using Pentaho CE software, you are also participating in the Pentaho community and contributing to an open source project.
Expectations - If you are unfamiliar with open source, this article is a good place to start. The open source community thrives on participation and cooperation. There are several communication channels available where people can help you, but they are not obligated to do so. You are responsible for your own success which will require time, effort and a small amount technical ability. If you prefer to have a relationship with a known vendor who will answer questions over the phone, help you during your evaluation and support you in production; please visit www.pentaho.com.
Though it is common for sizable open source communities to offer
substantial options for informal support in the form of community
maintained and generated forums and wikis, communities are under no
obligation to support users of the software, let alone respond rapidly or in-
depth. For non-production deployments of the technology, this lack of a
service level guarantee is often acceptable, but for technologies deployed
to production, support equivalent to that available from commercial
vendors is often a requirement
