With Talend, almost all the angles of using Data are covered and we are able to create complex integrations satisfying the needs of our clients. Key factors driving the business decision: -Strong user community -Product roadmap and future vision -Strong services expertise -Product functionality and performance. Talend is a really good middleware that plays a key role in hybrid complex scenarios.
  • Generated optimized code for building data pipelines.
  • Ingested and integrated data from both On-Premises and Cloud environment.
  • Created roles for data cleansing, or need to trace data lineage to ensure compliance and integrity.
  • Hadoop-related and big data components need to be rewritten and improved by Talend.
  • The exception handling is not convenient. You can either let go of the exception or stop the process or use an external controller to resume the applications. But you cannot customize the try-catch block of the exception itself.
  • Sometimes you have to use "Ctrl" sometimes "Cmd" is really badly done. In my experience the speed of learning clashes with the consumption of resources and the slowness of the interfaces. An interface made in pure Java requires more time to implement but is definitely more performing.
Truly trusted contact center where the effective solution is always guaranteed. It is not a one-off fix to a specific data integration or management problem. It is a permanent and scalable solution to manage all of your data under a unified environment. Easy to use, great performance, used it for our internal data warehouse. Easy to build and connect to our data sources such as Salesforce, Netsuite, and Marketo.

The tool is very effective, to carry out ETL tasks, since it allows from the extraction of information to the preparation of the same, and then with the BI tools to carry out the demonstration in dashboards for decision making. Talend has made my life easier when dealing with junk information and reached such a transformation that allows the added value in the institution.
  • fast
  • comprensible
  • friendly environment
  • intuitive
  • IA
  • performance
  • connectors
The best scenario that I see as productive is having several sources of information, the tool allows me to consolidate in a single income channel allowing me to maintain the integrity of the information, I like the treatment of financial data since speed and accuracy are needed in the accounting records. I believe that in any industry this tool would be 100% productive.

This is being used by the organization for integration purposes mainly. Here we used the tool for managing server level and cloud level data migration processes. Using this we achieve data transmission in our projects in a very easy way. By which for the complex data structures and data compilation and also some computational queries are easily mapped and processed.
  • The mapping of 2 different database situated in different server
  • Integration through API for database
  • Help to clean data
  • Help to manage oversized data
  • Need to do some reporting structure
  • For certain time server configuration is not much effective
  • Also UI enhancement is necessary
For some of the businesses where the migration is happening in in-house server to the cloud level that time connectivity is much important but for large datasets if a certain connection is broken then it will affect the whole dataset. Here Talend works preciously and helps us to manage a large number of datasets in very little time.

It is being used specifically in the finance department and is very pleasant to use due to its many time-saving default functions. Also, the integration is fantastic (Salesforce), this is a positive point of Talend Data Quality, users who are developers are also satisfied with Talend Data Quality because they can handle the code. The reports provided by Talend Data Quality are accurate and visually appealing.
  • Visually appealing and accurate reports.
  • Integration with Salesforce.
  • You can handle the code.
  • The learning curve in the beginning may be very steep.
  • Speed is not the best.
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.

We helped several customers implement Talend for data migration and integration. We have used it mainly to integrate Salesforce with various other systems like Oracle, MySQL, FTP (File-based integration) etc. It does provide a lot of predefined functionality out of the box along with providing the facility to use complex java code for developers.
  • 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.
  • Development is a little complex in comparison to others on the market. A high learning curve is required for developers. developers with java background are perfect for the job.
More suitable for complex integration scenarios as it supports Java code too. Need to have an experienced Mulesoft developer available with some Java background. Cost friendly in comparison to others on the market

Talend was used to send Postgres and MongoDB data from on prem servers to AWS cloud on a weekly basis for the integrated analytics.
  • Scalability: On month-ends, the volume of the data is twice as much as other weeks, so Talend bandwidth scales well.
  • Availability: I have never seen the service interrupted.
  • Usability: The graphical user interface of dragging and dropping services is great.
  • DB support: It supports all our database connectivity, use Postgres and MongoDB.
  • Bugs: Came across some of the bugs in transforming column datatype especially on text.
  • Speed: Sometimes, bandwidth fluctuates in the data transfer as identified from logs, but so far so good.
  • Connector support: So far have not seen Actian Matrix plugins, could be useful.
If the data needs to be periodically merged in the data warehouse for the analytics, this tool is great. But, came across some glitches when doing streaming replication.

We have been using Talend products internally and for our client projects for both data quality and integration. Talend DQ is used for data profiling and quality reporting.
  • Diverse data profiling analysis types. Talend DQ has a lot of great analysis report available that can be used in profiling.
  • Reporting is a relatively fast and has detailed information in visual and numeric representation.
  • The drill down capability, when it works, is very useful.
  • The print and export functionality are missing in the Community version which frustrates a lot of our clients as well as internal users.
  • The learning curve is very steep for all Talend products including DQ.
  • Lack of easy to create workflows for jobs that can be repeated.
It is good when using it for a read only analysis, but if one needs to show the results or present it to anyone else, it is quite weak! Ask if your reports needs to be shared or published with non technical users. Ask if business users need to be using this tool for simple data profiling or will this be used for technical staff.
