Talend Makes Splash with Open Source Data Quality Suite

"Talend Data Quality fills in quite a few DQ checkboxes, boasting -- among other features -- data identification (i.e., the ability to determine if data is reliable or unreliable on a record-by-record basis); data cleansing (i.e., the ability to clean incorrect, incomplete, or inconsistent data, either by using built-in routines or by cross-referencing it against masters databases or reference data); and data enrichment (i.e., the ability to flesh out data with "nice-to-have" information -- including latitude and longitude information, census data, or credit scores) capabilities."
