Built on Talend Data Fabric and Snowflake’s Data Cloud, Passerelle’s Data Rocket provides a scalable architecture that delivers governed data ingestion, trusted stewardship, cloud-based storage, and on-demand visual analytics based on the foundation of healthy data. New Data Rocket vertical solutions will be tailored for key vertical markets, beginning with financial services. Financial institutions rely on data insights to attract and retain customers in a tech-driven world – an estimated 73% of global consumers use online banking at least once a month to access and manage their financial assets. However, for many organizations, data silos and legacy ways of data governance create barriers to valuable insights. Additionally, legacy analytics infrastructure makes it difficult for the right teams to get the data where they need it, when they need it. Investing in data modernization with a full-scale data architecture and business analytics solution can be overwhelming and expensive for small and mid-sized institutions. “To compete in today’s world, it takes a whole ecosystem of partners -  there's not one bank that I know of that can do it all on their own,” Peter Love, Chief Digital Officer, Berkshire Bank. “Passerelle’s Data Rocket has created a modern infrastructure to improve our insights and create a better customer experience.” “By integrating its product with Snowflake, Passerelle harnesses the power of the Data Cloud and the ability to discover and purchase data directly on Snowflake Marketplace to enable digital transformation for regional banks and other financial services organizations,” said Rinesh Patel, Global Head of Financial Services at Snowflake. “Passerelle’s Data Rocket ties technology investments with use cases for immediate value and usability.” Data Rocket’s end-to-end data solution optimizes Talend Data Fabric and the Snowflake Data Cloud’s abilities to give data teams the most value out of their data so financial organizations can achieve desired business outcomes in a robust data-based environment. Talend, Passerelle, and Snowflake will provide joint customers with industry-leading support to help minimize overhead, increase customer attrition, increase ROI, and support data-informed innovation decisions. “Assembling a data stack to meet all the needs of an organization is a daunting task,” said Pat Dionne, CEO of Passerelle. “Data Rocket is an end-to-end solution that unites industry leading technologies into a robust framework that scales with use and lands quickly with prebuilt dashboards and ready to use data governance modules. With the Data Rocket for Financial Services, we added capabilities that our financial services customers are asking for – easier access to 3rd party data and enriched 1st party data, a better way to measure ROI in marketing, and predefined use cases to accelerate time to value.” Talend removes technological and skills-based barriers to working effectively with data across an entire organization. The company’s cloud-independent unified data integration and management solutions ensure businesses become data-driven by achieving organization-wide data health. Talend Data Fabric is an end-to-end data integration platform that simplifies all aspects of working with trusted data for analysis and use, driving critical business outcomes. For organizations within the finance vertical, healthy data from Talend will make a huge difference for data teams who need to get the most value out of their data in order to make informed business decisions. “A solution like Data Rocket is essential for businesses of any size looking to implement a working environment that uses healthy data at scale for analysis,” said Andy Smith, Senior Director Global Tech Alliances, Talend. “Having reliable data, especially during times of uncertainty, is critical for making decisions toward achieving desired business outcomes.

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.

"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.
