Overall Satisfaction with Talend Open Studio

Talend Open Studio is used by the business to implement data quality checks in pipeline. A great benefit that Talend offers over other similar tools like Informatica, is that Talend allows us to write our own components using Java, instead of being limited to using predefined components in the palette. Talend also offers big data integration, which is extremely useful for businesses that handle large volumes of data.
  • Integrating with Big Data tools
  • Handling multiple data sources
  • Monitoring real time data flow
  • Developing jobs quickly using predefined components
  • Community support could be better.
  • Adding a custom component to the palette is not very straightforward.
  • Interface could be improved to make it easier to use.
  • A wide variety of business requirements can be accomplished with Talend.
  • Data warehousing can be handled using Talend.
  • Data cleaning and quality control can also be accomplished with Talend.
  • As a single tool, Talend alone, provides a significant positive impact on the business.
  • Informatica
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.
If you need to design the data flow architecture while working with big data tools, Talend Open Studio is a great way to do so. This is also true for designing data quality checks and monitoring real time data flow.
On the other hand, I would not recommend using Talend for handling less volume of data or for performing trivial or fewer data operations.
