Great thanks for such an open source solution. Book is great for beginners when need to start using pentaho. It guides readers through enabling process when trying to use this software solution. From installation to using. Also having this book reader can save some time when browsing on Pentaho Comunity forums and looking for some solution when trying to fix some problems. This book is giving all what is need to have it working.
From developer BI perspective I would welcome more technical information about setting modrian solution over not 100 % star DB schema's. Also this book is using MySQL as target DB BI. But is does not mention about performance and DB tunning towards MySQL configuration. Also I missed information about non-functional aspects of Penatho BI. Like logging configuration, auditing configuration and so on.
It is part of enterprise edition but basic info would be welcome.
The clustering functionality in PDI (Pentaho Data Integration) is mention just slightly as last chapter. I think such an great feature of PDI deserves more pages and examples how PDI could be setup to bring more performance and scalability.
It is great book and saving a lot of time when starting with Penatho. For the guys who are already using and working with it I would consider it before buying cause many info from this book are available on community forums.
Anyway Many thanks to authors for writing such a book for this valuable Pentaho community.
This book covers all areas of the Pentaho BI stack - some in more, some in slightly less detail (for example the data mining chapter was quite light but it is understandable, there are other specialty books for that).
The book is written in a very readable and hands-on style. Besides Pentaho, it contains introduction to various general Business intelligence and related subjects (e.g. data warehousing, SQL)- useful if you need a refresher in any of those areas.
Couldn't recommend more.
However this book is so well written that even a person like me who doesn't know an iota of Linux/MySQL/Tomcat/Java was able to install and get up and running with a few hours of work.
The book introduces some tools which are very useful to everyone (like Power*Architect). The book explains Data warehousing and Pentaho tools very well. If someone wants to start PentahoBI then this is THE book to have.
Thanks to the authors for such a wonderful creation!
I was able install & configure almost all the applications such as MySQL, data model tool, database programming tool, data quality tool, ETL tool, data analysis tool, BI tool and dashboard suggested in the book.
One of the few books benefited me immediately in many ways, specifically in developing DW using MySQL, data cleansing tool, Pentaho ETL and Pentaho BI.
This book will be one of my few reference books.
