Pentaho Open Source Projects Licenses

Business Intelligence Just for You

Pentaho Business Analytics is built on top of several underlying open source projects that are available under various licenses that affect aspects of our product such as distribution and embedding rights. These licenses help Pentaho achieve our goal of providing reliable and long-lived software products through collaborative open source software development.

Companies that distribute Pentaho software or derivative works of Pentaho software may be required to release their product as open source and should consult with legal counsel to verify compliance with the various licenses. Pentaho offers commercial licenses for distributors that make this requirement unnecessary. Contact our OEM group for more information.
