Talend Data Health Barometer Reveals Companies’ Ability to Manage Data is Worsening Year-Over-Year

Barrier to getting real value from data isn’t budget or technology –– it’s the people Economic uncertainty raises need for faster access to reliable data to drive business impact San Mateo, Calif., Sept. 21, 2022 — Talend, a global leader in data integration and data management, today released the results from its second annual Data Health Barometer, a survey conducted globally among nearly 900 independent data experts and leaders. While a majority of respondents believe data is important, 97% face challenges in using data effectively and nearly half say it's not easy to use data to drive business impact. The Data Health Barometer explores the disconnect between data and decision, which can impede enterprises and executives from supporting their strategic objectives through any economic conditions. “In the coming years, businesses are only going to become more reliant on data to navigate the challenges of a turbulent economy and an increasingly competitive marketplace,” said Christal Bemont, CEO at Talend. “By putting a focus on reliable data — supported by a strong data culture with a focus on agility and trust — businesses can not only weather any storm, but come out ahead. Having a healthy data environment in place gives organizations the power to run lean in tough times without sacrificing their long-term strategy.” A company’s overall data health describes not just the state of a company’s data, but how well it supports targeted business outcomes. Major findings from the survey include: Companies’ ability to manage data is worsening YOY: On all five markers of healthy data — timeliness, accuracy, consistency, accessibility, and completeness — companies rate themselves around 10 points lower in 2022 than they did in 2021. Timeliness (-29pts) and accessibility (-15pts) saw the greatest drops, as respondents struggle with getting the data they need as a result of remote work (57%). There is a data literacy skills gap: Respondents shared that the No. 1 barrier to getting real value from data isn’t budget or technology –– it’s their people. One in three respondents have reservations about how well employees understand the data they work with. Without a common language for data, these businesses may not be prepared to face the challenges ahead. Businesses are preparing for economic turbulence: Respondents ranked increasing revenue (+10pts) and optimizing costs (+13pts) at the top of the list for data use and have increased in priority from last year. However, nearly half of companies claim that their data doesn't yet have the speed and flexibility they need to satisfy all the demands of the business, and 41% claim they don’t have fast access to the right data. Data trust and data quality remain top challenges to using data effectively: More than one-third of companies report that trusting the data they rely on to make business decisions is a major challenge. In fact, nearly half of respondents feel that ensuring data quality is a top challenge in using data effectively. Gartner research found that organizations believe poor data quality to be responsible for an average of $15 million per year in losses. Demonstrating the value of data health in an organization is Covanta, a leader in sustainable materials management, offering solutions that keep trash out of landfills, reduce greenhouse gases and generate clean energy. With Covanta’s data hub approach and Talend, IT can deliver the data quality needed for the business to have far greater confidence in its decisions. “There is now a shared understanding across operations and strategy, business and IT, of what our data means. Now we trust the quality of the data we use to operate our facilities," said Charles Link, Chief Data Officer at Covanta. For more information on the 2022 Data Health Barometer visit here. * Survey Methodology In June 2022, Talend led a global survey via Qualtrics among a base of independent respondents. 895 answers were collected, 892 answers were considered complete for analysis. The respondents are all data experts and leaders from medium and large companies, who regularly work with data. As data becomes a key asset for any organization, respondents represent a variety of industries and departments.

At the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, higher education organizations turned quickly to remote and hybrid learning, resulting in an unprecedented economic impact for the institutions with declining student enrollment and commercial revenue. To deal with the significant effects on their business, The UoM was determined to attract students with an improved customer experience and new offerings and resources through insight from their data. “Last year, The UoM's integration platform strategy was set to transition the university's current hybrid integration platform to a target-state cloud integration platform,” said Daniel Buttigieg, Director, Enterprise Technology, Business Services, The University of Melbourne. “With our new data ecosystem powered by Talend, we can address the current gaps in toolsets, pain-points to support the future strategic projects, and rationalize the integration platform.” The UoM decided to decommission its legacy on-premises data platform favouring a cloud-based solution to address the gaps and the new requirements identified within the university’s strategy, this includes compliance with the UoM's cybersecurity team's needs, and the native support of multiple connectors aligned with applications in the university ecosystem. By selecting Talend Data Fabric, The UoM can deliver a streamlined data integration process with support for cloud-based data integration to ensure it meets the needs of the strategic SaaS direction of the university. Talend removes technological and skills-based barriers enabling a larger base of users to work effectively with data across the entire organization. Talend Data Fabric will enable the delivery of various on-premises to on-premises, cloud to on-premises, and cloud-to-cloud data integration needs, including large-scale data migration activities such as advanced CRM and ERP implementations.  "By rapidly transforming itself, the academic community has demonstrated its resilience and capacity for digital transformation during a very challenging time," said Mark Fazackerley, Regional Vice President, Australia and New Zealand, Talend. "The University of Melbourne is making the proper choice by focusing on its data to move into the post-pandemic world. We are extremely proud that Talend has been selected to support them in this strategy to achieve organization-wide data health." Earlier this year, The University of Melbourne joined the Talend University Alliance program, a higher education program that addresses the shortage of skilled data workers and the rising demand for data integration expertise. The university program provides free software technologies and comprehensive data integration coursework that can be applied to students' future professional careers in data analysis and data research.  For more details on Talend and its complete portfolio of solutions, visit www.talend.com.

SGN Selects Talend to Support UK’s Net Zero Target

Enterprise-wide data transformation and governance project to help nation’s second largest gas distribution company increase organization-wide data usage and meet government’s decarbonization objective San Mateo, CA and LONDON — July 12, 2022, Talend, a global leader in data integration and management, announced today that SGN, the UK's second largest gas distribution network company, has selected Talend to drive its cross-organizational data initiatives. The energy company will use Talend to drive a strong data culture throughout its business and power its data transformation and digitalization plans to support the UK government’s Net Zero decarbonization objective. Running in an AWS environment, Talend will help SGN operationalize its data governance strategy, supporting regulatory requirements and greater access, understanding, and usage of its data across the organization. Operating across Scotland and in the south of England, SGN provides gas to 5.9 million homes and businesses. Driven by innovation and customer centricity, the company has been investing in technologies to modernize pipe networks and provide intelligent services through IoT and automation. In 2021, the UK government released its digitalization strategy for the energy sector, highlighting the importance of data and technology to achieve decarbonization and meet its Net Zero objective by 2050. To realize this goal, SGN selected Talend to control and govern data while enabling access and better usage of data by the business. To address one of the regulatory requirements around data interoperability, SGN is building a system of trust by creating an enterprise view and catalog of its data. The use of Talend’s data governance solutions will support SGN in complying with new and evolving regulatory mandates for energy data, in particular with the digital transformation of the energy networks and the need for robust, credible, and interoperable data to feed these solutions. “Data will play a key role in the innovation that will drive the future of energy and the future of energy sources. We have a number of innovative projects to identify how we are going to use hydrogen on our networks, how we prioritize our network upgrades so that it supports the Net Zero hydrogen targets, and how we optimize our program, so it is the most efficient for the future of gas and gas networks,” explains Shuchi Nagar, Head of Architecture and Data at SGN. The success of this broader digitalization programme also includes developing greater data literacy across the organization. Bringing the entire organization around data and driving a common understanding of the data is key. The implementation of Talend solutions enables the data team to gain more visibility and provide opportunities for their colleagues to interact with data and provide their insights and knowledge across the business. “One of the benefits that the Talend platform provides us with is the opportunity to change the perception of data as a conceptual asset that people can't see or touch necessarily, particularly when we are talking in the context of governing and managing our data to deliver value,” adds Gabrielle Barnard, Head of Information Management at SGN. SGN also required a solution that integrates with different internal applications and offers the scalability and power of SaaS. “Our ecosystem is largely AWS and SaaS applications; our best of breed strategy is cloud first and this was a key criterion in selecting Talend,” says Nagar. “Healthy data that is accessible and available to everyone fosters a common understanding of data and helps organizations quickly innovate and meet evolving policies and regulations,” said Gareth Vincent, SVP/GM EMEA at Talend. "We’re honored that SGN has selected us to play a critical role in ensuring their data supports the drive toward meeting the decarbonization objectives set by the UK government.” For more details on Talend Data Fabric and Talend's complete portfolio of solutions, visit www.talend.com.
