New books on Pentaho Data Integration (Kettle)

Good news for everybody who wants to get started with Pentaho Data Integration: 2 books are in the pipeline.
The first one "Pentaho 3.2 Data Integration: Beginner's Guide" by María Carina Roldán will be published in the next few days. I'll try to get a copy of it. The TOC promises a quite interesting book!
Later this year "Pentaho Kettle Solutions" will be available. This books will be based on the forthcoming PDI 4. It's written by the same team (Roland Bouman, Jos van Dongen) that brought you the excellent "Pentaho Solutions".


  1. Hi Diethard!

    thanks for the kind words :)

    I'd like to add that Matt Casters, founder of kettle and chief data integraion at Pentaho, is actually a full co-author too.

  2. Hi Roland,
    No worries, you are welcome! :) I am really looking forward to your new book! Over the last 2 years Kettle has become my primary ETL tool. I am still using some SAS programs for older projects (as I have no time migrating everything to PDI), but for all new projects, my first choice is Kettle.
