Dear María,

In our organisation BO is used because of corporate
compliance reasons.

Can the two products coexist and in which areas could
Pentaho complement BO?

Thank you,

Both products can co-exist. The choice depends much on what you want to do or how do you get your reports, cubes, etc. delivered.
In particular, I was told that BO doesn't have an ETL tool (or at least a decent one). Whether it is true or not, don't hesitate to use PDI for your ETL or data integration requirements,
