Talend provides end-to-end data and application integration platforms with literally hundreds of connectors and a graphical drag-and-drop user interface. This is sufficiently easy to use that business users will be able to carry out relevant operations without assistance. The platform caters for big data, cloud data and applications, on-premises data integration, master data management and leverages the acclaimed Open Studio, open source, integration toolset. The capability of Talend’s offering can be grouped into five categories:
Talend Big Data Integration simplifies the integration of big data without having to write or maintain complicated Apache Hadoop code. It provides simple, graphical tools and wizards to generate native code that leverages the full power of Hadoop. Talend Studio is used to design big data integration jobs with a drag-and-drop user interface, and gives access to over 800 connectors and components, including native support for Hadoop, NoSQL, and all structured and unstructured data sources. Once a big data connection is configured the underlying code is automatically generated and can be deployed remotely as a job that runs natively on a big data cluster – HDFS, Pig, HCatalog, HBase, Sqoop or Hive. Talend’s big data components have been tested and certified to work with leading big data Hadoop distributions, including Amazon EMR, Cloudera, IBM PureData, Hortonworks, MapR, Pivotal Greenplum, Pivotal HD, and SAP HANA. It provides out-of-the-box support for big data platforms from the leading appliance vendors including Greenplum/Pivotal, Netezza, Teradata, and Vertica. Pre-built connectors for HBase, MongoDB,Cassandra, CouchDB, Couchbase, Neo4J and Riak speed development without requiring specific NoSQL knowledge. Open Studio for Big Data combines big data technologies into a unified open source environment simplifying the loading, extraction, transformation and processing of large and diverse data sets.
Talend Integration Cloud includes the powerful Talend Studio and new web-based designer tools to maximize productivity. More than 800 connectors and components simplify development of cloud-to-cloud and hybrid integration flows to deploy as governed integration services. Simple or complex integration flows can be built inside Talend Studio that connect, cleanse, and transform data. When integrating big data systems like Amazon Redshift or Amazon EMR, Talend Integration Cloud enables a user to run processing when and where it is needed for the optimal response time, lowest latency, and most cost-effective use of resources. Using a web-based designer and hundreds of pre-built components from the Talend Exchange, users can quickly export, cleanse, and import data between popular applications and data sources including Salesforce, Marketo, NetSuite, Redshift, and SAP. An API Gateway makes it easy to create and extend policies to cloud, mobile, and partner applications, increasing productivity while enforcing data governance policies.
Talend Data Integration offers robust data integration in an open and scalable architecture. Simple, graphical tools and wizards get users up and running quickly with native code generation that streamlines development. Talend Studio features over 800 connectors to natively connect databases, flat files, cloud-based applications and more data. Graphical drag-and-drop tools and wizards speed design, testing, and generation of code, and teams leverage a shared repository and versioning tools for maximum productivity. Talend Data Quality profiles data, identifies anomalies, cleanses data and monitors data quality over time regardless of format or size, and through data de-duplication, validation, standardization and enrichment users create clean and high-quality data for access, reporting and analytics.
Business Modeler is a visual tool for designing business logic for an application; a Job Designer, a visual tool for functional diagramming, delineating data development and flow sequencing using components and connectors; and a Metadata Manager, for storing and managing all project metadata, including contextual data such as database connection details and file paths. Talend natively to databases, packaged applications (ERP, CRM, etc.), SaaS and Cloud applications, mainframes, files, Web services, data warehouses, data marts, and OLAP applications. It offers built-in advanced components for ETL including string manipulators, Slowly Changing Dimensions, automatic lookup handling and bulk loading. The shared repository consolidates all project information and enterprise metadata in a centralized repository shared by all stakeholders: business users, job developers, and IT operations staff.
Talend Application Integration delivers a unified platform for application integration, business process management, and data integration based on best-in-class and extensible open source technology. It allows users to integrate business applications, services, and APIs without coding, through an Eclipse-based tooling environment, for modeling, testing and deploying application integration solutions. The powerful built-in data mapper makes it easy to work with and graphically manipulate complex, legacy and vertical industry data formats. A point-and-click, wizard-driven security configuration makes it easy to setup and enforce security policies and controls.
Talend Master Data Management (MDM) unifies any amount of data into a single, actionable version of the truth. MDM combines real-time data, applications, and process integration with embedded data quality and stewardship. Built-in data integration, together with data quality and stewardship, empowers an organization to create and share a trusted golden record across internal and external sources. It provides a unified platform with graphical tools and native code-generation maximizes team productivity so they can shift effortlessly between integration styles.Talend MDM provides collaborative workflow enabling teams to build and enforce data governance policies, and users can define advanced business rules, validations, access rights and registry lookups directly on the model.
Talend Open Studio for Big Data combines big data technologies into a unified open source environment simplifying the loading, extraction, transformation and processing of large and diverse data sets. Users are also presented with a full palette of components for NoSQL connectivity, all under an open source Apache license. Bonita Open Solution from Talend’s partner Bonitasoft, is a robust, open source, business process management (BPM) solution for modeling, creating and optimizing business processes. Talend Open Studio for Data Integration provides a set of data integration tools to access, transform and integrate data from any business system in real time or batch to meet both operational and analytical data integration needs. Talend ESB is a reliable and scalable enterprise service bus (ESB) for the creation, connection, mediation and management of services and their interactions.Talend Open Studio for MDM provides master data management, data stewardship, data integration and data quality in a single platform.
