View Full Version : Professional Edition ?

08-30-2006, 07:30 AM

After having done some tests on Pentaho BI Suite downloaded from SourceForge.net and after reading the document called pentaho reporting server professional edition I do not understand what is the difference between the version we can download from sourceforge.net and the professional edition (except the support).

Can anybody help me to understand and explain me the differences. Also based on the document called pantaho support plan what is the price of the professional edition ? 2000$ ?

Thanks for your help.

Dear Claude-Alain,

Here is a good comparison of the Pentaho Open Source and Professional Editions:

You are correct, in that a significant advantage of the Professional Edition is the support.

I am actually a rep at Pentaho and my job is to help people understand our Professional Edition, public training, and support plans for a complete business intelligence stack (from data integration to reporting/analytics to dashboards to datamining). Feel free to call me with any questions or concerns.
