Redwood City, CA

Talend, the global big data integration software leader, today announced it has been honored for the sixth consecutive year by IDG's InfoWorld, as a recipient of the Best of Open Source Software Awards (Bossies). Talend Open Studio for Big Data, the company's open source solution for data integration, was named a 2014 Bossie winner in the “The Best Open Source Big Data Tools” category.

The 2014 InfoWorld Bossie recognition states that “Talend Open Studio for Big Data brings all of the Apache integration tools, a centralized repository, and ETL components (extract, transform, load) to big jobs, along with connectors capable of assimilating most modern "big data" ecosystems and tools. Using Talend's visual mapping tools, you can graphically construct large-scale data transformations, replete with flow testing and debugging, and directly leverage the power of a Hadoop cluster to complete the job. When it comes to cutting through the complexities of big data integration -- particularly syncing on-premise with cloud-based data sources and analytics -- Talend Open Studio may be the sharpest tool in the shed.”

"Talend Open Studio for Big Data makes it much simpler for our customers to manage and analyze big data,” said Laurent Bride, CTO, Talend. “We are making it quicker and easier to load, extract, transform and process large, diverse data sets and are excited that InfoWorld is recognizing our innovation for the data driven enterprise with a Bossie Award for the sixth consecutive year.”

The annual InfoWorld Bossie Awards recognize the best business-oriented open source software products for companies around the world that rely on technology to enable and enhance their business operations and deliver on their business strategies.

“InfoWorld's 2014 Bossie Award winners show that open source continues to lead the way in every corner of computing” said Doug Dineley, executive editor, InfoWorld. “Among our 130 winners you'll find not just the best open source projects, but some of the best software, period.”
