- SQL Server Integration Services and Kettle
When comparing Talend with Kettle (Pentaho) it's is easy to find similarities because they are both similar tools. In my experience, I'd rather [use] Talend because, in my opinion, it is more focused at data management. Kettle is a component provided from a wider BI tool, and Pentaho is not only focused at data management. I also found Talend gives better performance and manages connection sockets better than Kettle.

There are code building and code conversions internally in most of these ETL tools. The repository is an overhead in the ETL process. There may be a need for a full-time administrator to manage deployments and monitor jobs. With Talend, it seems to be transparent with the pure JAVA/PERL code. You have the ability to easily customize your code. It has support for big data integration. The data quality/ MDM tools can be easily integrated with Talend ETL.
The license cost is low compared to other ETL tools. With the new version of talend cloud-based hosted deployment is also available. An overall full featured open source version of Talend studio is available that can be used at zero cost with some amount of scripting to automate tasks.
I was able to replace SSIS with a zero cost Talend open studio deployment with shell scripting and CRON scheduling.
