Overall Satisfaction with Talend Data Quality

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.
  • Definitely simplified the development efforts on our end in doing the data integration, saving lots of human hours.
  • Small company, so cost could be a problem for these services, but works so far.
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.
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.
