Data Extraction

Benefits of an Integrated Solution for Data Extraction

IT groups today are challenged with implementing data extraction processes for a wide range of data sources. For example, in support of data warehousing and business intelligence systems, data extraction processes may need to draw from mainframes, relational and non-relational databases, files of various formats, web services, packaged applications like ERP and CRM, and more. To handle these varied tasks most efficiently, data managers need an integrated solution that can handle all types of extraction scenarios as well as related processes of data transformation and data loading.

Talend, the leading developer of open source data management software, provides organizations large and small with integrated data extraction and ETL solutions that are powerful, reliable, and accessible. Talend's integrated data management solutions – Talend Open Studio for Data Integration and the enterprise-grade Talend Data Integration – offer benefits that more restricted, limited use tools can't match:

  • 360° visibility. With more built-in data connectors than any other data extraction solution on the market, Talend data integration software enables you to easily connect to, profile, and drill down into all of your organization's data sources, from the same unified console. From one location, you can see all your data, at high level and in detail.
