I knew the integration capabilities of Pentaho’s open source platform and being a SaaS company it was a better fit than other traditional layers. Microsoft and other products do not come close to Pentaho’s extensibility and value proposition. Given the costs of deploying other solutions that might not even have the same functionality, we never considered another option besides Pentaho.
