It is immediately clear how strategically sound it is to have a unique open source business intelligence tool that can easily connect to any data source, process the continuous streams of data, raise its capacity when necessary and to absorb and adapt to peak data production as well as to simply react to the natural growth of information produced.
It's not always easy to choose the right tool. Often, the tools with the right capabilities have high costs or are too complex to use. Less expensive tools are likely to have limitations or inefficient support in case of malfunctions.
The Pentaho Business Analytics Suite is more than capable enough to cover the needs mentioned above and also allows you to have a cost efficient solution through its Community version.

- The types of compatible sources are constantly being increased due to the contribution of the Open Source Community that's always in tune with the latest technologies;
