Hadoop Applications

Making Hadoop Applications More Widely Accessible

Apache Hadoop, the open source MapReduce framework, has dramatically lowered the cost barriers to processing and analyzing big data. Technical barriers remain, however, since Hadoop applications and technologies are highly complex and still foreign to most developers and data analysts. Talend, the open source integration company, makes the massive computing power of Hadoop truly accessible by making it easy to work with Hadoop applications and to incorporate Hadoop into enterprise data flows.

A Graphical Abstraction Layer on Top of Hadoop Applications

In keeping with our history as an innovator and leader in open source data integration, Talend is the first provider to offer a pure open source solution to enable big data integration. Talend Open Studio for Big Data, by layering an easy to use graphical development environment on top of powerful Hadoop applications, makes big data management accessible to more companies and more developers than ever before.

With its Eclipse-based graphical workspace, Talend Open Studio for Big Data enables the developer and data scientist to leverage Hadoop loading and processing technologies like HDFS, HBase, Hive, and Pig without having to write Hadoop application code. By simply selecting graphical components from a palette, arranging and configuring them, you can create Hadoop jobs that, for example:

  • Load data into HDFS (Hadoop Distributed File System)
  • Use Hadoop Pig to transform data in HDFS
  • Load data into a Hadoop Hive based data warehouse
  • Perform ELT (extract, load, transform) aggregations in Hive
  • Leverage Sqoop to integrate relational databases and Hadoop

Hadoop Applications, Seamlessly Integrated

For Hadoop applications to be truly accessible to your organization, they need to be smoothly integrated into your overall data flows. Talend Open Studio for Big Data is the ideal tool for integrating Hadoop applications into your broader data architecture. Talend provides more built-in connector components than any other data integration solution available, with more than 800 connectors that make it easy to read from or write to any major file format, database, or packaged enterprise application.

For example, in Talend Open Studio for Big Data, you can use drag 'n drop configurable components to create data integration flows that move data from delimited log files into Hadoop Hive, perform operations in Hive, and extract data from Hive into a MySQL database (or Oracle, Sybase, SQL Server, and so on).

Want to see how easy it can be to work with cutting-edge Hadoop applications? No need to wait -- Talend Open Studio for Big Data is open source software, free to download and use under an Apache license.
