    Product(s): Talend Open Studio for Data Integration

    Talend solutions can alleviate your integration headaches.

    Overall Comment

    An outstanding business model utilizing open source strategy to gain widespread adoption. The base open studio product is fully functional and provides enterprise level capabilities. In addition it is not a black box, on the contrary, it is a java code generator therefore anything you build can be looked at via source code. It has matured over the years and has proven in our environment to be easier to create, test, support, and deploy vs. our legacy custom built solutions. I have had nothing but good experiences injecting this technology into our environment.

    What do you like most about the product or service?

    Quick and easy to adopt. Cutting edge products. Open box and can be customized by internal teams as opposed to other closed dev kits.

    What do you dislike most about the product?

    Lack of consulting resources due to being the new kid on the block.

    Product capabilities - overall comment

    We are currently only using one of Talends products, Talend Open Studio for Integration. We are planning on using some of their other offerings such as Talend ESB and Talend for MDM.

    Service & support - overall comment

    Currently we are supporting product internally with our own technical experts. Talend offers support services with their enterprise platform which is much more reasonable than other offerings such as Informatica. In addition they have full time analysts that answer questions on their Talend forums.

    Integration & Deployment - Overall comment

    Instant download and installation of product. Built a simple proof of concept within minutes. Pleanty of online walkthroughs and youtube videos to assist.

    Product(s): Talend Enterprise Data Integration, Talend Open Studio for Data Integration, Talend Platform for Big Data

    Talend is complex for handling simple problems

    Overall Comment

    Talend is you get what you get kind of situation. While having a "simple" GUI is nice in theory, there is a lack of flexibility. We deployed Talend in order to replace our own custom code but ended up with something that was harder to deploy, lacked industry standard version control, and regularly upset our developers.

    What do you like most about the product or service?

    Fantastic support for input and output adapters. Though we only have ~20 we really needed to focus on, so it ended up not being the most crucial element.

    What do you dislike most about the product?

    The GUI is very archaic. The Talend API is also very frustrating to deal with and makes custom solutioning extremely difficult to impemenet. Additionally without strong version control our QA process was severely damaged.

    Product capabilities - overall comment

    Talend has a number of input and output adapters but at the end of the day its the transformative capabilities that are lacking

    Integration & Deployment - Overall comment

    They've definitly deployed many times and there is mastery on their end on how to deploy behind the firewall quickly. However the application itself doesn't have fantastic documentation.

    Product(s): Talend Enterprise Data Integration

    Complete feature set for typical integration requirements, but performance issues.

    Overall Comment

    The functionality meets our requirements, the performance of the IDE and the management console is not satisfying.

    What one piece of advice would you give other prospective customers?

    Check if the modern features (Big Data, Cloud) are really relevant for your organization at the moment and in the near future. To focus on the features of the platform that will be actively used.

    What do you like most about the product or service?

    The technical architecture (generation of Java-Code).

    What one thing do you wish the vendor did differently?

    To put the focus on stability and performance instead of the sheer number of features.

    If you could start over, what would your organization do differently?

    Develop an integration strategy before starting to introduce a technical platform. Define the responsibilities of the IT department vs. the business department regarding the development of ETL-processes, production support.

    Product(s): Talend Enterprise Data Integration

    Low Cost, but what you get is what you pay for.

    Overall Comment

    Lack of adequate documentation. Lack of adequate talent pool in the market at a reasonable price point. Consultants we engaged with them were sometimes severely lacking on product knowledge. Severe restrictions with working on parallel workstreams due to extreme complexity in merging changes.

    What one piece of advice would you give other prospective customers?

    Understand its strengths and weaknesses before using this tool.

    What do you dislike most about the product?

    Inability to work on multiple projects in parallel.

    What one thing do you wish the vendor did differently?

    Their documentation and consultancy should be improved.

    If you could start over, what would your organization do differently?

    A more detailed evaluation of the products in market, covering a wider set of criteria.

    Product(s): Talend Platform for Big Data

    A still maturing rich ETL tool - careful if you're going to use it as an enterprise data integration platform

    Overall Comment

    We are overall satisfied with the prduct capabilities. Still need to mature in some areas (perfromance, monitoring).

    What one piece of advice would you give other prospective customers?

    Make sure you to have an architecture in mind before you start building TALEND jobs.

    What do you like most about the product or service?

    Supports many platfroms and integrates well with different technologies.

    What one thing do you wish the vendor did differently?

    1) Provide some best practice to deploy TALEND as a platform rather than local deployment into servers. 2) Better documentation for some of the features (for example : TDM).
