Big Data Blog
At the recent Hadoop Summit in San Jose, California, visitors to the Talend booth were given the opportunity to tell their big data story, through a short video. Over 20 participants were interviewed including attendees from Wellcentive, Vindicia, Cisco Systems and Time Warner Cable. They shared their big data experience, their vision and expectations.
The use of Big Data in these organizations is continually expanding with more and more use cases and challenges, and the expectations from big data technologies are huge. No matter the industry, the type of data or the usage scenario, organizations are embracing big data to get the maximum value from this ever-increasing volume of data.
Earlier this year, I had the privilege of being interviewed by Robin Block from Cloud-Channel.tv, a specialist media outlet servicing the Enterprise Technology Industry. Robin quizzed me for a while on various big data topics – from adoption to return on investment of projects, from technology to market trends, and we discussed broad topics including open source, dark data, use cases, and more.
Over the weeks, Cloud-Channel.tv has been publishing a number of short videos from this interview. I am providing here links to the most interesting ones.
In today's blog, I am covering a preview of the latest performance benchmark that the R&D and Talend Labs has run based on the TPC-H benchmark tests.
As ever, it is Talend’s mission to provide easy to use big data integration tools with the industry’s highest performing, most scalable integration code running natively on Hadoop.
As a part of this mission, we put every product release through a rigorous set of performance and scalability tests, including a performance benchmark developed by the Transaction Processing Performance Council, known as TPC-H.
The recognition of Talend as one of the key players in the big data market continues to make progress. In the past few weeks, three of the most recognized publications in the data management and software world have presented Talend with an award, acknowledging the role that the company is playing in helping organizations tackle big data and help businesses gain value from their data assets.
Awards from the press provide a good indicator of how much visibility a company is getting, and as such are a good leading indicator for new or trending technologies. Conversely, industry analysts such as Gartner and Forrester measure with which frequency large enterprises ask about, or use, a vendor/product, and provide a trailing indicator of success and adoption. Both are important, and at Talend we are proud of the recognition we are getting from both bodies.
Last week at Hadoop Summit in San Jose, California, visitors to the Talend booth were given the opportunity to tell their big data story, through a short video. We had setup a recording studio on the booth, with live production capabilities, and asked attendees a simple question – along the lines of “what benefits are you getting/expecting from big data?” or “how do you use Hadoop in your organization?” All participants were entered into a raffle to win the hottest item in wearable technology: Google Glass. All videos were posted to the Talend Channel on YouTube in real-time, and tweeted used hashtag #BigDataWithTalend.
The last few years have been an interesting and opportune time for those in the information and data management domain. Not only have the choices in technology been increasing at a vast rate, but the risk associated with those choices has been reducing exponentially. No longer are buyers of solutions making calculated risks, instead the decision makers are making informed choices based on established patterns of solution. I have now been through the Customer, Integrator, Solution Provider (Product Manager) cycles three times in the last 16 years, and interestingly what has changed is not the cycle, it's me.
