Hi, this is all new to me. I'm basically tasked at trying to evaluate this product for future reporting services. I would like to use our sample data for demo purposes and have this talk to an oracle database. Also, we would like to install this on a linux platform. Can someone provide me the proper path as to what product or products to download or if I should get the suite? Again this is to evaluate the product and I would like to use our data as much as possible. Any help would be much appreciated.

I went through the download wizard and followd the path of "Get stable generally available Pentaho software for prototyping and proof-of-concepts" which provided me with a list of your products. Can you tell me if this is correct?

Also, I was reading a whitepaper where it described as having a "Preconfigured Server Installation" for easy testing, but it has already has sample data. If we can use our data, that would be great. Please advise.

Thanks. :)
