Talend Helps Office Depot Europe Deliver Trusted Data

The Office Supplies and Office Services Provider Uses Talend Cloud to Power Better Analytics and Drive its Multi-Channel Customer Engagement Strategy Redwood City, CA - June 19, 2018 - Talend, a global leader in cloud data integration solutions, today announced Office Depot Europe, a business supplies and services provider, is using Talend Cloud to ingest data from its vast collection of operational systems, displacing siloed information repositories with a centralized enterprise data hub. Talend Data Integration and Data Quality capabilities enable Office Depot to improve e-commerce efficiency, while providing a better customer experience using predictive analytics in a more cost-effective and agile way. Office Depot Europe sells everything from paper, pens and flip charts, to office furniture and computers, to customers located in 14 countries throughout Europe. Traditionally, Office Depot’s European sales were primarily sourced through an offline, mail-order catalog model driven mainly by telemarketing activities. The company has since moved to a hybrid retail model, combining offline and online shopping, which required a data consolidation strategy that optimized the different channels and created a 360-degree customer view. Additionally, the company’s myriad backend systems and disparate supply chain data collected from across Europe had become difficult to analyze. Using Talend Cloud, Office Depot gained greater confidence in the quality of its enterprise data, enabling faster responses to rapidly changing market dynamics. “Talend helped us become a capability-led organization rather than application-led, allowing our team to use data to measure customer needs and competitive threats, which improves our business agility,” said Matt Steell, director of Information & Architecture at Office Depot. “With Talend we can ensure qualified, accurate information is delivered at the right time, empowering everyone from senior managers to business analysts to make better business decisions.” In migrating its solutions to Talend, Office Depot is also reducing instances of “shadow IT” by enabling business users to consume data as needed—without involving IT—and be self-sufficient. Using Talend’s persona-based cloud applications, such as Talend Data Preparation, IT can allow business users to be more directly involved in data quality and stewardship activities to ensure data is trusted. “Office Depot Europe is running a digital transformation project to improve internal processes and gain a competitive advantage,” said Ciaran Dynes, SVP of Products, Talend. “We are proud to help Office Depot Europe turn data into a trusted asset to respond more efficiently to market trends.” For more information about how Talend is helping Office Depot create an enterprise-wide view of customers, operations or finances to improve business results, check out this case study.

New Talend and Snowflake Features Enable Faster Cloud Analytics Migrations

High-performance bulk loading and native ELT push-down capabilities move massive data volumes from on-premises to cloud Redwood City, CA - June 4, 2018 - Talend, a global leader in cloud data integration, and Snowflake Computing, the data warehouse built for the cloud, today announced the availability of new, high-performance bulk loading and native, Extract, Load, Transform (ELT) push-down capabilities that make it fast and efficient to move massive data volumes and varieties from on-premises to Snowflake for cost-effective and scalable analytics. The companies are also promoting free 30-day trials of Talend Cloud and Snowflake to jump-start customer cloud projects and introduce an entirely new audience of developers and companies to how quick and easy it can be to move to the cloud. Included with the trials is a tutorial to lead users through the common use case of transferring data from Salesforce including step-by-step instructions for accessing, extracting, and filtering data from Salesforce.com and writing filtered results to Snowflake for analytics. “Our growing list of joint customers is a testament to the compelling value we provide to companies looking to leverage the cloud for faster analytics,” said Ashley Stirrup, CMO, Talend. “With our latest capabilities, we’re capitalizing on the native power of Snowflake to deliver a whole new level of performance and scalability.” A Talend and Snowflake customer, Decision Resources Group (DRG) is the premier source for global healthcare data and market intelligence. DRG software-as-a-service (SaaS) products, built using extensive real-world data and research insights, are designed to empower organizations to succeed in complex healthcare markets. The company turned to Talend and Snowflake to streamline their existing data assets company-wide, as well as to generate deeper customer insights and develop new products. “We had a period of extremely rapid data growth combined with high demands from a growing user community and where our existing infrastructure was not able to scale effectively,” said Sven Junkergard, CTO, DRG. “Our team searched for the best possible technology to support our new reality and we decided to move forward with the combination of Snowflake and Talend. After an initial, brief, period of rebuilding existing capabilities on this new platform, we were able to quickly implement new functionality and are today supporting many times more data and users than before our move. The Snowflake and Talend combination has been a great success story for us so far.” The new ELT push-down capabilities Talend and Snowflake are introducing allow developers to perform data processing and transformations directly in Snowflake resulting in 10x greater performance than using traditional ETL processing. Similar gains can also be achieved with the new bulk-data loading capability that leverages the latest Snowflake APIs for rapidly transferring large data volumes into the cloud data warehouse. Using Talend and Snowflake, enterprises can institute a robust cloud data warehouse strategy that allows customers to: Successfully unite diverse data sources, both structured and unstructured, on-premises or in the cloud, allowing them to provide their organizations with an end-to-end view of enterprise information. Maintain data veracity and quality, ensuring that business analytics emerge from a single source of truth. Establish collaborative data governance, which is increasingly important in today’s highly regulated and risky business environment. Enable self-service data analytics for an unlimited and diverse range of business users so they can make data-driven business decisions. “The benefits of cloud computing continue to urge enterprises to retire their on-premises solutions,” Snowflake’s Director of Alliances, Saqib Mustafa said. “But the key to their success is fast and efficient migration. Snowflake and Talend’s latest product advancements take full advantage of the cloud, delivering faster time-to-value and ultimately transforming organizations into data-driven leaders.” Available immediately and running through the end of June, new Snowflake customers can register via the Snowflake website to receive access to Talend Cloud for 30-days, at no charge. Once registered via the banner ad, customers will also have access to all associated use cases and how-to videos to help them start using Talend Cloud with Snowflake. Like this story?

Talend and Qubole Partner to Disrupt Big Data Economics with Serverless Cloud Support

New Integration between Talend and Qubole Platforms Allow Customers to Scale Compute Resources On-Demand, while Reducing Data Processing Costs by up to 70% REDWOOD CITY, Calif. and NEW YORK - May 8, 2018 - Talend, a global leader in cloud and big data integration solutions, and Qubole, the maker of a leading cloud-native, big data, self-managing and self-optimizing activation platform, announced new combined capabilities that help data engineers build and run data pipelines, applications and services in the cloud at a fraction of the cost and without the burden of managing servers. Using Talend and Qubole, customers can eliminate time spent writing complex Spark code for big data processing, and instead use Talend to create data jobs and pipelines that are automatically executed at scale on Qubole’s platform.  “With data volumes doubling each year and the number of business workers needing access to that data tripling, IT leaders end up spending more time and money managing legacy technologies versus investing in utilizing big data to drive business insights,” said Ciaran Dynes, SVP of Products, Talend. “We’re excited to partner with Qubole on delivering a serverless computing experience capable of overcoming today’s broken data economics and helping enterprises maximize the power of the cloud to speed time-to-business outcomes while significantly reducing IT spend.” Deploying and managing big data technologies can be complicated, costly and requires expertise that is hard to find. Research by Gartner states, “Serverless platform-as-a-service (PaaS) can improve the efficiency and agility of cloud services, reduce the cost of entry to the cloud for beginners, and accelerate the pace of organizations' modernization of IT.” Serverless computing allows users to run code without provisioning or managing any underlying system or application infrastructure. Instead, the systems automatically scale to support increasing or decreasing workloads on-demand as data becomes available. The integration between Qubole and Talend Data Fabric allows customers to run data jobs and pipelines built within Talend on  Qubole’s workload-aware auto-scaling platform, which then adjusts the size of big data clusters dynamically to meet performance needs. Working with Talend and Qubole customers can: Integrate data from various sources into a cloud data lake on Amazon Web Services (AWS) or Microsoft Azure. Build and execute data quality workloads to cleanse, mask and transform data. Design a data pipeline in Talend and select the big data engine of choice to run that job using Qubole’s serverless experience while ensuring enterprise-level security in any cloud. Optimize cloud resources with Qubole’s capabilities for automatically managing and scaling big data engines like Apache Spark, Hadoop and Hive. Leverage Qubole’s automated AWS spot bidding and management to implement the best price-performance ratio when running data preparation jobs. By allowing customers to side-step the need to provision, scale, or manage any servers, the combination of Talend and Qubole can help them dramatically reduce data processing costs as compared to on-premises solutions. “The exponential growth of data volumes, data types, and use cases, along with increasing user expectations, static IT budgets and a shortage of big data skills, has resulted in a data activation gap that is holding back businesses,” said Mohit Bhatnagar, SVP of Product, Qubole. “Together, Qubole and Talend are in a unique position to help companies close this gap, with a joint big data cloud solution that delivers a modern and secure serverless experience, with limited waste, and significant cost savings.” To learn more about Talend’s support of serverless computing tune in here to view the live stream keynote address by company CEO, Mike Tuchen, at Talend Connect being held in New York on Tuesday, May 8th at 8:45 am ET. Additional information on the practical application of serverless computing using containers on AWS Lambda can be gathered from this blog. Further details on Talend’s complete portfolio of cloud-first solutions can be found at www.talend.com. For more information on Qubole’s big data activation platform click here. Like this story?

Talend Unveils Industry’s First Cloud-Native, Apache Beam-Powered Streaming Data Application

Talend Data Streams Free Version for AWS Joins Talend’s Suite of Persona-based, Cloud Applications that Help Liberate Data, Accelerating Time-to-Insight for Data Scientists & Engineers REDWOOD CITY, Calif. and NEW YORK - May 8, 2018 - Talend, a global leader in cloud and big data integration solutions, unveiled Talend Data Streams, a free, Amazon marketplace application that simplifies and accelerates ingestion of massive volumes and wide varieties of real-time data. Released today at Talend Connect US, the company’s annual customer and partner conference taking place in New York, Talend Data Streams provides self-service access to real-time data for engineers, data scientists, data analysts and other ad hoc integrators. The AWS-based, single-user application will eventually become part of Talend’s existing suite of persona-based, cloud applications that enable everyone to work with trusted data.  “Innovative business insights don’t happen in a vacuum. Successful data pioneers have shown that being data-driven is a ‘team sport’, meaning all employees need to be involved in collecting, shaping and improving the quality and trust in data,” said Ashley Stirrup, CMO, Talend. “Talend Data Streams now extends that collaboration to include data scientists, data engineers and data analysts using a self-service, easy-to-use, intuitive application for collecting real-time data, so companies can move from imagination to innovation, faster.” A recent survey of more than 16,000 data professionals showed that the most common challenges to data science include: dirty data (36%), lack of management support for data science teams (27%), lack of clear direction to pursue with available data (22%), and overall access to or availability of data (22%). Talend Data Streams helps overcome these challenges by allowing data scientists, engineers and other analysts to: Jump-start data integration with a zero-install, management-free, web-based UI that has users up and running in minutes Rapidly ingest massive volumes of disparate, streaming and cloud data without complexity Accelerate pipeline development with a unique live-preview feature that displays changes in real-time Break the legacy cycle and extend the life of all data pipelines with the un-paralleled portability across cloud platforms powered by Apache Beam. Delivering Trusted Data Data is the new currency in today’s digital economy. However, the economics of data are broken: data volumes continue to double each year, while the number of data workers triples, yet IT budgets remain flat—making it impossible to keep pace with growing business demands for information. In parallel, it’s becoming increasingly common for disparate business units to use their own tools to collect and integrate data, leading to more information silos, or ‘shadow IT’, which ultimately prevents companies from reaching their data-driven potential. Cloud-based, big data streaming technologies play a key role in helping companies utilize the cloud to scale data-driven decision making, while ensuring their most valuable asset—data—is governed, trusted, managed and accessible to a variety of employees. “Digital business demands a consistent approach to the management of security, privacy and process compliance across enterprises. This isn't possible when ‘information islands’ fail to observe the standards required to ensure quality and consistency,” said Ciaran Dynes, SVP of Products, Talend. “Thus, businesses need a radically different data architecture to overcome today’s broken data economics and effectively put more of their data to work. Talend’s mission is to liberate data from legacy infrastructures and improve its availability, quality, performance and value using citizen collaboration and the cloud.” Talend Data Streams will join the other persona-based apps currently available in Talend Data Fabric, an open source-based integration platform that combines all Talend products into a common set of powerful, easy-to-use tools for real-time or batch, data or application integration. Talend’s suite of integrated, cloud-based, self-service apps are optimized for worker productivity and digital transformation. Using Talend, business and IT can collaborate on data integration and governance tasks, easily share work between apps, orchestrate stewardship tasks, increase confidence in their data and put more data to work, faster. To learn more about the full capabilities and benefits of Talend Data Streams, customers can register for one of the live webinars, “Put More Data to Work: Talend Spring ‘18,” on Tuesday, May 22, 2018 from either 10:30 – 11:30 am BST or 10:00 – 11:00 am PT.

Talend Listed One of Highest Rated Public Cloud Computing Companies to Work For

List Showcases Public Cloud Companies with the Highest Levels of Employee Satisfaction Redwood City, CA - May 2, 2018 - Talend, a global leader in cloud and big data integration solutions, was recognized as one of the “25 Highest Rated Public Cloud Computing Companies To Work For” in a new list released by Battery Ventures, a global investment firm, and Glassdoor, one of the world’s largest job and recruiting sites. The list highlights 25 publicly traded companies—all business-to-business cloud companies—where employees report the highest levels of satisfaction at work, according to employee feedback shared on Glassdoor. The distinction placed Talend at number 20 with an overall company rating of 4.1. The broader average across Glassdoor is 3.4. Talend’s CEO, Mike Tuchen, boasts a 91 percent approval rating on Glassdoor—compared to an average of 69 percent for all 770,000 employers on the site—and the company has a 79 percent positive business-outlook rating, again based on feedback shared by employees. The broader Glassdoor average is 48 percent. A positive business outlook means employees believe business will improve in the next six months. “Since we first partnered with Glassdoor to compile this list in 2016, the cloud has only grown in influence and market power,” said Neeraj Agrawal, a Battery general partner who specializes in cloud investing. “It was also significantly tougher to make the list this year, with companies requiring a higher Glassdoor rating to make the cut—showing that companies can’t rest when it comes to focusing on culture and employee happiness.” More broadly, “We view these rankings as a key indicator of company health and potential growth,” said Agrawal, who will discuss the lists and their implications at this week’s CloudNY conference, a high-profile, invite-only event for cloud founders and CEOs. Agrawal also serves on the board of Glassdoor. A Glassdoor economic research study, as well as other third party studies, also show that companies with high employee satisfaction often post stronger financial performance. “I’m very pleased that Talend has been recognized as a great place to work alongside so many other impressive, publicly-held cloud companies,” said Mike Tuchen, CEO of Talend. “The high marks we’ve achieved are directly attributable to the entire team. Our employees embrace a sense of collective ownership and the teamwork mentality needed to help the organization achieve its goals and deliver for our customers every day. I’m immensely proud to be a part Talend.” Glassdoor noted that employees at these highly rated companies commonly mention in online reviews that they enjoy working for mission-driven companies with strong and unique company cultures; employers that promote transparency; and companies with experienced senior leaders who regularly and clearly communicate with employees. For instance, according to one anonymous employee review of Talend on Glassdoor:  “Great product and outstanding opportunity to rule the data integration market. There is a lot of marketing and SDR (Sales Development Rep) support which makes our jobs so much easier. Great team support and solid leadership. Everyone wants to help.” Full lists of the Battery/Glassdoor highest-rated 50 private cloud companies and 25 public cloud companies to work for can be found here. Like this Story?
