Overall Satisfaction

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.
  • None that I can think of.
We have used DQ Analyzer and we like it more than Talend!
Lack of report export and publication! Steep learning curve!
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.
