Why our Partnership with Cloudera Altus is a No Brainer

  As you may have read, Talend recently announced its support for Cloudera Altus, a newly released Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) offering that simplifies running large-scale data processing applications in the public cloud. For us, supporting Altus at launch was the absolute easiest decision given that so many of our customers are looking to realize the cost, […]


Using Neural Networks with Talend DI and ESB

  This article originally appeared on Rilhia Solutions Many times during Data Integration projects we have situations where we have to analyze the data in order to come up with acceptance criteria for it. In a lot of cases, this is pretty straight forward and can be easily written into simple rule-based logic. But in some […]


Talend & Couchbase: Jumping into the NoSQL Database World

  While the whole world is shifting towards big data, NoSQL has become a crucial technology in the data management industry. The need for moving and transforming data between traditional and modern systems has likewise become mission critical for data-driven businesses. This data movement could either be to a new data warehouse project or migrating […]


The four levels of consistency in API design

In our previous post we have discovered the two perspectives of API design¬†but whatever the chosen design perspective, there’s a key concept to keep in mind when designing APIs: Consistency. But what does really means being consistent in API design and why does it matter? This is what we will talk about in this post. […]


Testing Machine Learning Algorithms with K-Fold Cross Validation

In an earlier post on Applying Machine Learning to IoT Sensors, I discussed the process for classifying sensor data with a machine learning algorithm. In this post, I’ll give a background on choosing an algorithm, then using a validation technique. For the technique, I’ll show how to apply it, and how it can be built using the Talend […]


Data Model Design and Best Practices – Part 1

Business Applications, Data Integration, Master Data Management, Data Warehousing, Big Data, Data Lakes, and Machine Learning; these all have (or should have) a common and essential ingredient: A Data Model; let us NOT forget about that; or, as in many situations I run into, ignore it completely! The Data Model is the backbone of almost all of our […]


What the NFL Still Needs to Learn about Big Data

  Praying for next season will continue until the league gets better at data integration. Nobody loves stats and data more than football fans. From yards-after-catch (YAC) to possible correlations between the NFC winning the Super Bowl and a Republican winning the White House, rabid fans follow every conceivable story the numbers might tell. There […]


The two perspectives of API design

API design is a matter of point of view, an API can be designed from two perspectives: outside in and inside out. While the outside in approach focuses on creating an API from the consumer point of view regardless of what happens behind the API; the inside out one focuses on giving consumers direct access […]
