Alation

Alation is best suited for data analysts and data scientists to understand the business using the metadata that it curates. It provides a platform for users to be able to run queries and share them with other users, which creates a collaborative environment. It is a single source of truth to learn more about the data you work with daily.

Talend Data Quality

Talend Data Quality integrates very well with Salesforce and this is one of the reasons that prompts me to recommend it to all my colleagues, it is true that the speed is not the best and that the learning curve is very steep, but based on my experience directly with Talend Data Quality I can say that these problems are solved and you can really have many positive results with Talend Data Quality.

Talend Data Quality

  • It supports a wide variety of connectors (Systems/endpoints)
  • It provides great flexibility for developers as it not only has a lot of predefined ready to use the function but also provides the ability to use complex java code within the platform. Great tool if you have good developers available.

At this moment the usability of Talend Data Quality is optimal, too bad I cannot say the same in the first three months, it was always a problem due to its steep learning curve, but what matters is being able to use it effectively at this precise moment.

Talend Data Quality gave us direct help in the learning process and prevented us from taking many more months to adapt and I appreciate this from the heart, I think that thanks to the support we can have very detailed reports that help increase the use of Talend Data Quality in the company.

Alternatives Considered

Alation

Apache atlas, LinkedIn Datahub, Lyft Amundsen are some of the open-source tools we've explored before using Alation. Alation is way advanced over these tools and it has AI capabilities to help you write queries in an automated fashion. and learn more about the data in an easy way. It's very helpful in the data world.

Talend Data Quality

Have tried AWS Data Migration Services to do this, but found it to be buggy and immature product. Also tried on - prem developed scripts to do the integration but could not scale as we intended.
