Introduction to DI Wizard Installation


Provides an introduction to the process.

The Wizard is the easiest and quickest way to install Pentaho Data Integration (DI). You can use DI to create and schedule data integration processes, model data, and perform other processing related to traditional and big data sources. The Wizard can be used to install the DI Server, Spoon design tool, and the Kitchen, Pan, and Carte utilities. The Wizard also installs plugins such as Big Data.

We recommend using this installation method for evaluation purposes only.


If you are not sure which installation method to use, read Select DI Installation Option before you begin.


These instructions are written for anyone who wants to install PDI.


You must supply a server or workstation that meets the hardware and operating system requirements indicated in support technologies.
