ETL Tools

Turn to Talend for the Most Cost-Effective ETL Tools

Today's businesses face a growing need for ETL tools that can efficiently and reliably move data from one location to another within the organization. System modernizations, data warehousing projects, mergers and acquisitions, and the demands of service-oriented architectures are just a few of the forces driving the growth of extract, transform, and load (ETL) projects. Depending on their particular circumstances and needs, IT groups tasked with implementing ETL projects have traditionally chosen either to develop ETL tools in house or to purchase proprietary ETL tools. Both approaches are costly, in different ways.

Talend, the leading provider of open source data management software, offers a far more cost-effective solution: powerful open source ETL tools that enable organizations to efficiently implement a wide range of data migration and data synchronization projects.

Faster and Less Labor-Intensive than Building Your Own ETL Tools

For ETL projects that are limited in scope and duration, developing in-house ETL tools is a tempting option. In-house development takes time and labor, however, and may result in unanticipated maintenance and management headaches down the road. A further consideration is the business costs associated with potential development delays.

By contrast, Talend's open source data integration solution, Talend Open Studio for Data Integration, enables you to start right away on modeling and implementing your data migration. Talend Open Studio for Data Integration is free to download and you can use it at no charge for as long as you need. The system features an Eclipse-based integrated development environment packed with productivity-enhancing ETL tools such as a drag-and-drop job designer and more than 400 data connectors that help you easily bridge nearly any source to nearly any target. Built-in components support bulk loading, ELT mode as well as ETL, string manipulations, data quality management, and much more.

Far Less Costly than Purchasing Proprietary ETL Tools

For enterprise-scale and mission-critical project needs, Talend also offers the subscription-based Talend Data Integration, which extends Talend Open Studio for Data Integration with enterprise class functionality such as team collaboration and version control tools, automated real-time load balancing, and support for mass volume storage technologies such as Hadoop. Projects that you start on Talend Open Studio for Data Integration can be seamlessly migrated to Talend Data Integration if your needs grow to enterprise scale. Priced at a fraction of what comparable proprietary solutions cost, Talend Data Integration also includes Talend's first-rate technical support and professional services.
