The Pentaho BI Project is open source application software for enterprise reporting, analysis, dashboard, data mining, workflow and ETL capabilities for business intelligence needs.

The BI Suite Community Edition is intended for: Business intelligence aficionados, open source software programmers, early adopters, and college students.

This software can be used as a full suite or as individual components that are accessible via web services.

Pentaho BI Suite users will typically start with Pentaho Data Integration to prepare a data source, then use Metadata Editor to create a metadata layer for that data source, then potentially Schema Workbench to create a ROLAP schema. At that point, you're ready to create reports and analysis views.
