Mondrian and Pentaho Analytics – A book is in the works

One of the biggest challenges many new users to Pentaho have is finding good documentation.  A variety of documentation exists, but it’s scattered among various sources, such as the Pentaho Knowledge Base, the Mondrian site, the Pentaho wiki, and a variety of blogs.  While much of this content is good, wouldn’t it be nice to have one place to go to for all things Mondrian?  I’m happy to say that a book is on the way.

It’s still very early in the process, but Julian Hyde, and Nick Goodman, and myself are collaborating to put together a book that covers the nuts and bolts of Mondrian including:

  • Setting up and running Mondrian
  • Creating schemas
  • Scaling Mondrian
  • Security
  • Integrating Mondrian with applications and enterprise tools

The as yet to be named book will be available from Manning and we hope to have some early access versions available this summer.  Early feedback is always welcome so we can make this the best book possible.

If there are specific topics you’d like to see in the book, please mention them in the comments.

    Would be nice that the book covers advanced topics in depth like non-aggregated or semi-aggregated measures.

    Looking forward to it!

    Good News!

    Can you please consider include something about Cache Management and Dynamic Schema Processor?.
