How it WorksUnified, Complete and Open Data Integration
A Comprehensive Solution
Talend provides a Business Modeler, 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.
Broad Connectivity to All Systems
Talend connects 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. Direct integration is provided with data quality, data matching, MDM and related functions. Talend connects to popular cloud apps including Salesforce.com and SugarCRM.
Teamwork and Collaboration
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. Developers can easily version jobs with the ability to roll-back to a prior version.
Advanced Management and Monitoring
Talend includes powerful testing, debugging, management and tuning features with real-time tracking of data execution statistics and an advanced trace mode. The product incorporates tools for managing the simplest jobs to the most complex ones, from single jobs to thousands of jobs. Processes can be deployed across enterprise and grid systems as data services using the export tool.
We have enjoyed a rapid return on investment due to the simplicity of the tool (quick and easy to use) and also because of the increased productivity of business users.
