Why Talend?

Are you on top of your data? That is to say, is it quantifiable…intelligible…is it correct?

If you are not sure, then you are not alone. Businesses are trying to manage millions of pieces of information, and it’s an ever expanding universe. How is it possible to stay on top of this task, take the data burden and turn it into something meaningful? At a time when our technology architecture gets ever more complex is it possible to join the dots with data that delivers real value to the business?

To extract the value from millions, even billions of tiny events, it’s time to get strategic, bring a little order to the data helter-skelter in the form of compatibility. It’s time for a real world solution – this is where Talend comes in.

What is Talend?

This is the tool that makes it possible for you to bring all of your information assets into line. Simple as that. Talend is built in such a way that it is flexible enough to sit between any of the data sources and platforms out there and get the conversation going. With a powerful polyglot like this, there is no end to the potential you have to transform and integrate your data.

With a solutions portfolio that includes data integration, data quality, master data management, enterprise service bus and business process management, there is everything you need here to make your data work for you.

And once your data is working for you, not against you, you can truly start to get the benefits from the technology you have in place.

Why we think Talend rocks

Perfect for the transition from legacy to the cloud

We work with many businesses who want to move elements of their operation from legacy applications to the cloud, with Salesforce.com. Talend is the perfect tool for this kind of enterprise integration, to manage the flow of information between entirely different systems.

It pretty much connects to everything

With more than 400 connectors, Talend offers more connectivity than any other solution on the market today. Whatever you are working with – enterprise systems, databases, software packages, mainframes, files, Web Services, etc, Talend can handle the challenge.

“For historical reasons we depend on a wide variety of data (OLAP, LDAP, Oracle, SQL Server, DB2, etc.) and Talend Open Studio’s wealth of connectors helps us resolve many compatibility problems,”
Magali Amouroux, IT Project Manager, Auteuil Foundation

Open source means it never stops getting better

The people who built Talend exposed the code to the public. That means that developers all over the world are constantly taking this code, tweaking and customising it to meet their own business needs. Then, they feed these changes back to the community at large. The net effect is a tool that is continually evolving to meet market requirements, while being concurrently tested and translated for all.

Great Support Services

Just because this product is open source, that doesn’t mean there are any compromises with the quality of the support. These services are delivered by Talend experts, or by Talend-certified partners, and offer the same services as the largest proprietary vendors, complete with service level agreements and guaranteed response times.

It speeds everything up

Talend can automate and maintain tasks – no more manual scripts and data processes.

“We’re handling billions of transactions and we interface with a huge number of diverse sources and a variety of data. We might be dealing with 45 different currencies and perhaps 18 different languages or we might need to merge an HR feed to a particular system. Before Talend,  and using the tools that were available at the time, it took us 3 to 4 years to build the 15+ different interfaces we needed. We replicated all those interfaces on Talend in three months. That’s more than a 90% increase in productivity!”
Rock Blanco, President, Prime Numbers Technology

What does Talend mean for your business?

Talend is the tool which will allow you to unify all of your business data and give you just one view of the truth. You will see quicker integration time, better data quality and more robust systems.

Good data + good systems = a better business.

We think it’s the future of data integration.
