For quick daily integrations Talend is a very good tool and it makes development time so short and easy. Citizen developers who are not great programmers can pick up and start using Talend Open Studio within weeks. It's well suited for all kinds of data migration between various systems. It is less appropriate for smaller synchronous services where you need to trace the complete transaction and how data moved between them. It's also less appropriate for small data movements where other tools can be easier to use and manage.

This capability is will be supported by the end of Q1. Datameer can be buggy if the version is not supported by the distribution of Hadoop being used. Datameer does not make it simple to create samples of data sets. Read full review The community is not that up to date and forum is not that great in response. Probably we should make people aware of the tool more on how to use and its implementations. Talend crashes when transforming a lot of data (millions of rows). Proper training documentation is a must for talend which is currently lagging. This will help users to learn more about Talend and use it effectively. Read full review Likelihood to Renew
We have already renewed our Datameer license for year number 2. They have come a long way since their initial release and I am expecting them to be a top BI tool in the coming year. The tool was built by one of the original creators of Hadoop. Therefore fits on top of a Hadoop cluster like a glove

Talend Open Studio is based on Eclipse and is full of redundant procedures to do one thing, like when installing libraries. Sometimes I cannot manually download the libraries that it can't find.

Many times, Talend freezes. When you give a cancel command, it takes several minutes to stop. It also takes a great toll on our PC with 16 GB of ram and I7 CPU, even in idle status. If you are downloading Maven Jar/Libraries, you cannot do anything and have to wait until the task is finished.

Talend Open Studio is free and we are not using the enterprise version which comes with licence and support. So, mostly depend on the open source community for any issues that we face. The document is good and we didn't have to use any support so far. We did evaluate the enterprise version and so far sticking to the free version.

Based on our findings, we are unable to utilize the
platform due to the associated costs. We also looked into Informatica, but decided against it because of its expensive pricing and poor integration with other BI products. Those unfamiliar with SQL may nevertheless use this tool to build complex transformation processes after a brief onboarding session.

Informatica has a limited number of components that you can use. This places a heavy limitation on the capabilities of Informatica. On the other hand, Talend allows you to create your own custom components using Java. For businesses that need to perform a wide variety of data operations, it can be quite useful to have the option of creating your own custom components to satisfy business needs.
Read full review Return on Investment Quick time to value. Transition from developer to learning Datameer is less than a day. Workspace is drag and drop, which makes it intuitive and easy to use. Speed of data transformations. Pulling data from various sources. Easy to schedule data pipelines. Tailor made for Snowflake and Redshift. Documentation is sometimes not updated quickly. Training videos are a bit long. Read full review I delivered projects the client did not believe were possible, and I provided intermediate value by providing visibility to hidden data problems in their systems they could not detect before. I was able to work 3 projects at a time, pausing gracefully in one while switching to the other, with minimal effort. Read full review ScreenShots
