Hi and welcome!

Pentaho Data Integration (PDI) is one of the leading ETL tools to transform data into meaningful information. It provides an intuitive visual interface to manipulate, convert, and shape data.

3 reasons for why you should care about Pentaho:

  • It's fast, super reliable, and easy to understand. Many Fortune-500 companies already trust Pentaho with their data.

  • The average salary for "Pentaho data integration" starts from $66,000 for Junior Developer and goes up to $141,000 for Enterprise Architect annually (Indeed, 2020).

  • After Hitachi Data Systems acquired Pentaho, its functionality gets better with each release.

I created this mini-course to help you get a basic understanding of what PDI can do. If you are a BI designer, architect, or manager, and want to learn the basics of PDI in a short time, this course is for you. After this course, you'll be able to create your data flows, import, convert, and export data. If you already know an ETL tool, PDI will be an important asset in your skill-set.

Start today and I wish you much pleasure!
