Developing Agile Data Services, the Open Source Way
Among the steepest challenges faced by IT teams today is the need to adapt data management practices to ever-changing business requirements and technology environments. Talend, the open source integration company, makes data service solutions to help your team build agile data services that can adjust quickly to new demands and opportunities.
Start Now, Not Later
The first step toward implementing agile data services in your organization is to choose a solution that gets you started now rather than in six months or a year or more. Talend supports data services agility with a suite of open source applications that you can download now and use for free, for as long as you want:
- Talend Open Studio for Data Integration makes it easy to design and develop data migration services that move and transform data across heterogeneous sources, including nearly any file format, RDBMS, mainframe, ERP or CRM application, or cloud data service.
- Talend Open Studio for Big Data features Hadoop-oriented components supporting codeless development of data transfer services that move big data into or out of a Hadoop distributed processing cluster.
- Talend Open Studio for Data Quality enables you to profile and evaluate data quality in nearly any type of source system.
Keep Your Data Services Platform Open
For true agility in your data services, you can't lock your IT platform into the requirements of a particular vendor or proprietary protocols. Talend helps you ensure data services agility by using open standards like JDBC, SOAP, and WSDL that facilitate interoperability among heterogeneous systems.
Unlike many data services solutions that tie you into using a centralized integration server or that require an RDBMS engine to process data, Talend open source solutions let you export processes into executable files that can be distributed across a grid of non-dedicated servers or exposed as web services.
Migrate to Enterprise Data Services When the Time is Right
From Talend's free open source solutions, you can optionally migrate to subscription-based data services packages that deliver additional enterprise-grade functionality like team collaboration, load balancing, high availability, and management of SOA-enabled services. Talend's enterprise data integration services solutions are affordably priced by the number of developer seats, so you have the agility to add new servers, processor cores, or data sources without having to pay a "data tax" like some proprietary vendors charge.
Extend to Meet New Data Services Needs
Talend's data services platform easily extends with modular components for data quality management, master data management, and business management process development. With Talend, you can start with sharply focused data services and optionally expand to global data services as your needs require.
