Talend Updates Data Fabric to Unlock Analytics Potential of SAP Data

New Support for SAP in Talend Data Fabric Simplifies Integration between Back-end Systems, Enterprise Applications & External Data Sources Redwood City, CA - April 16, 2018 - Talend, a global leader in cloud and big data integration solutions, today unveiled significant updates to Talend Data Fabric that allow customers to unlock data stored in SAP systems for analytical insights, maximizing their SAP investments. Expanding upon Talend’s current support for SAP, the new capabilities help customers easily and quickly combine existing SAP data with other enterprise applications and external big data sources, then offload it to data lakes or data warehouses—either on premises or in the cloud—to run big data scenarios. “As organizations amass a greater volume and variety of data, they need a simple, cost-effective way to gain insights across all enterprise information – wherever it resides – for long-term success in the digital economy,” said Ashley Stirrup, CMO, Talend. “SAP is a highly functional software platform currently used by 87% of the FORTUNE Global 2000. However, typically special expertise is needed to create a connection between SAP and third-party systems. Now, Talend Data Fabric can help companies sidestep this skill gap by delivering a fast and easy way to harness the power of SAP data for analysis, improving business insight and operations.” The need for solutions that integrate disparate data is significant. In fact, a recent HBR study found that 55 percent of a company’s data is not accessible. SAP systems are designed for transactional processing, but getting the right data into SAP to perform such transactions can often be a challenge. Additional barriers can arise when companies try to extract information from SAP systems to support reporting, dashboards, or analytics. For example, when: Synchronizing customer data from SAP ERP with other CRMs such as Salesforce Integrating SAP data with third-party suppliers or partner systems Migrating SAP data to a data warehouse or data lake for analytics or to run big data scenarios To help customers overcome these hurdles, Talend Data Fabric now includes more sophisticated SAP connectors and components to support more enterprise-grade use cases. Talend’s new SAP support capabilities include: SAP Bulk Extraction allows customers to pull large amounts of batch big data out of SAP Business Suite and SAP S/4HANA and migrate it to other systems or applications for use in big data scenarios. A native ELT push down feature enables customers to benefit from the in-memory processing power of SAP HANA, significantly speeding up application performance without the need to be an ABAP expert. A Business Content Extractor (in tech preview) delivers semantic views on top of SAP data sources, making that information more readily accessible. It also allows customers to integrate with SAP Business Warehouses without needing external logic. Access to SAP HANA Calculation Views enables customers to work with composite snapshots and perform complex calculations, dramatically simplifying the data modeling process. Like this Story?

Talend Joins Cloud Leaders in OpenAPI Initiative to Further API Standards and Interoperability

OpenAPI Initiative (OAI) Comprised of 30+ Leading Cloud Vendors including Google, IBM, Oracle, RedHat & SAP; Membership Also Secures Talend’s Leadership in the Linux Foundation Redwood City, CA - March 28, 2018 - Talend, a global leader in cloud and big data integration solutions, today announced its new membership in the OpenAPI Initiative (OAI), a consortium of forward-thinking industry experts that recognizes the value of standardizing how web APIs are defined and utilized to drive industry adoption, interoperability and best practices. Restlet, a cloud-based API design and testing platform for developers, acquired by Talend in November 2017, was a founding member of the OAI in November 2015. At that time, its goal was to create an opportunity for the API community to unite around a common language that facilitates the integration among various API tools offered by both open source projects and commercial vendors. Notable additions to OAI since its founding include Apiary (now part of Oracle), which is leading the API Blueprint project, and MuleSoft, which is leading the RAML project. “We view the Linux Foundation as a vibrant ecosystem, similar to the Apache Software Foundation, which we’re also heavily invested in for the development of Apache Beam. Talend has a vested interest in building a community-driven API governance organization that is backed by major vendors and business actors,” said Ciaran Dynes, SVP of Products at Talend. “As the API ecosystem extends to the enterprise and the Data ecosystem, our collaboration with the OAI around API standards will promote interoperability, foster closer collaboration, and ultimately further developer innovation and success.” Today’s digital and fiercely competitive marketplace has several driving forces: Omnichannel customer experience adapting to evolving customer demands, leading to the proliferation of apps, mobile and digital devices, powered by APIs; Exponential growth in the volume and variety of data captured by devices and other systems incorporated into analytics systems via ingestion APIs; A rapidly evolving open source and cloud native technology ecosystem. Nearly every application uses APIs to connect with corporate data sources, third party data services or other applications, making them “the glue” within modern data architectures. Creating a clearly described, universally agreed upon format for API services that is vendor neutral, portable and open is critical. As an OAI member, Talend will look for effective ways to promote and increase the visibility and use of API standards within the open source ecosystem, as well as augment their use within the Talend Data Fabric platform to benefit customers and partners. "The OpenAPI Initiative is on an important mission to define and promote a vendor neutral description format understandable by humans and machines," said Ole Lensmar, Chairman of the OAI Business Governance Board. "Restlet was one of the founding members of our organization and now that it has joined with Talend’s broader data integration portfolio, we expect new, more advanced applications of the OpenAPI Specification to emerge that will help drive the full API lifecycle.” As part of its OAI participation, Talend will also become a member of the Linux Foundation, which is dedicated to building sustainable ecosystems around open source projects to accelerate technology development and commercial adoption. “We’re thrilled to welcome Talend—a company founded on the premise of putting open source at the core of its entire product portfolio—to The Linux Foundation," said Jim Zemlin, executive director of The Linux Foundation. "Talend continues to contribute to several open source projects including the OpenAPI Initiative and fosters growth of the broader community. We very much look forward to collaborating with them on projects and initiatives in the years to come." OAI is composed of more than 30 members, including Atlassian, Google, IBM, Microsoft, MuleSoft, Oracle/Apiary, 3Scale/RedHat, SAP, and other leaders in the API ecosystem. The Linux Foundation hosts a wide range of open source projects in its ecosystem, such as CNCF, Cloud Foundry, NodeJS, JS foundation, ODPi, Linux and more.

Talend & Snowflake Share Best Practices for Cloud Data Warehouse Modernization in the Age of Big Data During 2018 Cloud Analytics World Tour

Cloud and Big Data Integration Leader Joins its Partner to Educate Customers on How to Maximize Cloud Data Warehouses to Enable More Informed, Enterprise-wide Decision Making Redwood City, CA - February 15, 2018 - Talend, a global leader in cloud and big data integration solutions, today announced its participation in Snowflake Computing’s 2018 Cloud Analytics World Tour, which includes 11 cities across the US, Europe and Australia. The goal of this worldwide roadshow is to reveal how cloud data warehouses can help extend the impact of traditional, on-premises warehouses, overcome current business challenges, and enable more widespread use of data for more informed decision-making. “We view data warehousing in the cloud as the natural evolution of today’s data lakes, which require massive scalability, collaborative governance, accelerated data quality measures enabled by machine learning and widespread accessibility,” said Michael Pickett, SVP of Business Development and Partner Ecosystems for Talend. “We’re eager to join our cloud partners at Snowflake on this educational tour that will help customers better understand how to capitalize their data warehouses to enable more wide-spread, data-driven decision making.” In the Gartner Big Data Adoption Survey, 52 percent of respondents state that determining how to get value from big data is one of their top three challenges, and the enterprise data warehouse was the most likely way for them to derive value from big data.[1] Currently $10.2B of the market operates on premises and $1.2B in the cloud, however the cloud portion is projected to grow tremendously over the next four years. During this four-month roadshow, attendees will gain evidence-based insights and the tools and techniques needed to increase business agility by overcoming the restraints of legacy warehousing infrastructure by utilizing the cloud. At each event, Talend will participate in an “Expert Panel” discussion and QA session with Snowflake, several other vendors and customers, to reveal how a built-for-the-cloud data warehouse can transform current business challenges into successes. Talend will also lead its own break-out session at each event titled, “Turning Any Data into Consumable Analytics in the Cloud.” In this session, participants will discover how to improve connectivity across a dispersed array of both structured and unstructured data, and enable more employees with governed, self-service access to that information utilizing the cloud, so people have the right data available to them when and where they need it. “Customers of all sizes are looking for ways to increasingly use the cloud to scale operations, better serve distributed members of the organization, speed time to market and maximize overall value delivered to the business,” said Walter Aldana, VP of Alliances at Snowflake. “We’re thrilled to have Talend—a leader in cloud and big data integration solutions—join our Cloud Analytics World Tour and help us educate the market on how cloud data warehoused can deliver scalable and integrated analytics with governed, self-service access to unify tools, people and data for more effective and insightful decision making.” Talend representatives will appear at the following free Snowflake Cloud Analytics World Tour half-day events: Munich San Francisco Seattle Denver Austin Atlanta Chicago Washington, D.C.

Talend Helps the ICIJ Expose Hidden Wealth in the Paradise Papers

Talend Data Integration Helps Investigative Journalists Decipher Offshore Financial Safe-havens of Power Brokers and Iconic Brands Redwood City, CA - January 30, 2018 - Talend, a global leader in cloud and big data integration solutions, announced that International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) is using Talend Data Fabric as part of its Paradise Papers investigation, a leak involving 13.4 million encrypted documents from two offshore tax havens and 19 secret jurisdictions protecting the financial dealings of the world’s political players and corporate giants. ICIJ used Talend to load more than 1.4 TB of unstructured data into Neo4j graph database, which leverages the Linkurious graph visualization platform to organize and access the information. The data includes emails, Excel, CSV and PDF documents with text and images about companies and people who are using a hidden system built for avoiding tax payment. ICIJ also used other open source tools to support their “Knowledge Center” and make the information searchable by reporters. “Talend is our preferred solution when it comes to cleaning, transforming, and integrating the data we receive. It works as a crucial mechanism for enabling us to build a robust database,” said Pierre Romera, CTO at ICIJ. “Working with open source tools like Talend ensures security and reliability of data as our extensive network of investigative journalists review terabytes of files. Backed by an extensive community of contributors, open source solutions enable us to benefit from the latest innovations in data processing, extraction, and visualization.” Cloud is also a central element of ICIJ’s data journey. The organization uses the power of Amazon Web Services (AWS) to process all the data and make broaden access. ICIJ set up temporary machines in AWS to parallelize data extraction - the organization uses Ubuntu, Tesseract and an in-house tool called Extract to do characters optical recognition and help to extract text from files. “Moving to the cloud was obvious due to the nature of our mission and the large volume of data we process. Cloud technology offers the scalability we need when we need it, so we can easily manage our workload. With a robust power for processing and security, AWS was the most suitable choice for us,” explained Pierre. The 13.4M tell-tale documents were obtained by German newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung that received data from two offshore services firms in countries ranging from Bermuda to Singapore, as well as 19 corporate registries around the world. For about a year, ICIJ worked with hundreds of journalists and media partners on exposing this new lead, which has had a significant impact on well-known individuals and large organizations. “Since ICIJ revealed the Panama Papers leak in 2016 for which they won the Pulitzer Prize, we have seen how much data management and processing technologies can impact our society,” said Ciaran Dynes, SVP of Products, Talend. “We are pleased to support in-depth investigative journalism and those seeking meaningful insights from data.” For more information about the data behind the Paradise Papers, you can watch this video.
