Hi @ all,

I used to work with MicroStrategy 8 / 9 BI software, but I am always looking for new BI software - open source software in particular.
I am just getting strated with Pentaho - but what I read and saw so far was very interesting and caught my attention.

Here are some questions somebody here might answer:

  1. anybody who worked with both - MSTR and Pentaho - and can tell me some experience? - which software is more stable, which one is easier to handle... - no need to talk about licences
  2. I guess to create dashboards it is a need to create reports before - right?
  3. are there any interaktive widgets integrated? - like interactice bubble charts, etc? - how can I integrate widgets i created on my own (extern)?

Thanks a lot and best regards
