Talend Announces Latest Innovations to Support Journey to Healthier Data

Latest Talend Data Fabric advances analytics, security, and collaborative governance across the enterprise Redwood City, CA - August 11, 2021 - Talend, a global leader in data integration and integrity, today announced the latest innovations added to Talend Data Fabric, a complete integration and governance platform designed to manage the health of corporate information. Available now, new enhancements from Talend provide data professionals with new, high-performance integrations to leading cloud intelligence platforms, a self-service API portal, collaborative data governance capabilities, and private connections between Amazon AWS and Microsoft Azure to ensure data security. As proven by the pandemic, it has never been more important for businesses to become data-driven.  Despite years of investment in business applications, process automation, analytics, and more, recent research from Talend shows that 78% of executives still have challenges making data-driven decisions. This is partially explained by the fact that 60% of executives don’t always trust the data they work with. “One of the biggest crises businesses face today is a lack of agility caused by untimely, inaccessible, incomplete, and inaccurate data,” said Krishna Tammana, CTO, Talend. “With Talend’s latest release, we’re helping data professionals connect, share, and improve their data faster and more securely.  These innovations represent one step in our ongoing journey to help our customers put healthier data at the center of their businesses.”  The new Talend Data Fabric capabilities: Enable advanced data analytics and data sharing. Talend provides native integration with Databricks 7.3 and AWS EMR 6.2 on Apache Spark 3, which helps organizations take advantage of next-generation data analytics platforms to perform powerful and advanced analytics at scale while enjoying the faster performance, easier use, and greater flexibility of Spark 3.    This release also introduces a self-service API portal that provides a central listing of APIs and documentation to enable internal teams and external partners to discover, learn, integrate, and share data via microservices.  The API portal also helps improve developer productivity and collaboration by making it easier to share APIs, documentation, and data structures across the app development team. Ensure comprehensive security and protection. Talend is the first data integration and governance provider to support private connectivity between Talend and AWS or Azure instances via a private link. In addition to ensuring that sensitive data is secure and never exposed to the Internet, the use of a private link offers several additional advantages over a VPN, including reduced data transfer costs, faster time to deploy and operate, and increased performance for mission-critical workloads due to extra-low network latency and no Internet reliance. Private link support also provides compliance with local data protection and industry regulations such as PCI and HIPAA. Talend also extends its single-sign-on and multi-factor authentication to meet security best practices and deliver a straightforward user login experience to all customers of Talend’s cloud platform without additional cost.  Deliver self-service data governance at scale.  Talend provides tight coupling of data stewardship and data integration where read/write capabilities can be easily added to a data quality or governance "campaign" directly from a data pipeline. This provides greater collaboration between IT, who creates data jobs or pipelines, and the business subject matter experts, resulting in faster and more scalable data quality processes and subsequent decision making. “Talend continues to innovate and provide us with data governance capabilities that aide our business users in operating with more autonomy. The ability to manage data in campaigns directly without IT intervention, while at the same time retaining the ability to collaborate with IT when needed, gives us the agility to speed when it matters the most,” said Rachell Powell, Senior Application Development Manager at Ferguson Enterprises. Talend’s new capabilities help businesses accelerate to a modern, healthy data environment. The unified Talend Data Fabric platform supports greater confidence in an organization’s data along with the ability to get more value from that data with more advanced analytics and greater sharing.

Talend Extends APAC Presence with Cloud Data Infrastructure in Australia to Serve Customer Growth

Helps customers maintain data sovereignty requirements and improve organization’s data health Redwood City, CA and SYDNEY - June 30, 2021 - Talend, a global leader in data integration and data integrity, today announced the opening of its newest regional cloud data infrastructure in Australia to support Talend’s expansion and growth in Asia Pacific (APAC). Talend’s new cloud data infrastructure will provide Australian enterprises with confidence and clarity into their data while addressing regional data sovereignty, privacy, residency, and performance requirements. The Sydney-based cloud infrastructure, operated on Amazon Web Services, Inc (AWS), will be operational to host customers in July 2021 and generally available to all ANZ organizations.   According to Gartner, “the events of last year allowed CIOs to overcome any reluctance of moving mission critical workloads from on-premises to the cloud. Even absent the pandemic there would still be a loss of appetite for data centers."[1] Gartner forecasted in other research that Australian Public Cloud spending would reach USD 7.3 billion by the end of 2021, increasing 18.4% from last year, with cloud application services (SaaS) spending rising by 16.9%.[2]   “Our underlying technology platform based on Talend has helped us disrupt the traditional, static financial services model, creating a real-time data-driven business and culture across our organization" said Andrew Bates, Chief Technology Officer at Harmoney. "Having a Talend instance located in the Australia/New Zealand Region will assist us to further align with regional requirements given potential future data legislation changes and benefit our customers. I'm very excited about the company's future growth across Australia and New Zealand and look forward to a productive ongoing relationship with Talend."   As industry and government regulations evolve, Talend's customers can maintain flexibility to keep up with the changes. By reducing compliance and operational risk with a cloud data infrastructure deployed independently in Australia, Talend can maintain high standards regarding data residency, security, data sovereignty, and operational best practices.   “Our clients are increasingly adopting Cloud capabilities to help improve customer service, drive innovation, or just to keep up with competition. Cloud gives our clients the power to transform and reinvent their business,” said Thierry Lotrian, Partner Analytics & Cognitive at Deloitte Australia. “It is fantastic to have Technology organizations like Talend investing in the local Australian market when it comes to Cloud infrastructure enabling Australian businesses and government alike to ride the next wave of technology driven innovation. Having the data center in Australia will play a critical role in complying with the data sovereignty requirements that many of our clients have in Australia.”   A unified approach to data, consistent with organizational needs and governance practices, requires fully transparent data management processes as well as documented and communal data quality standards. Talend Data Fabric is a single platform that delivers complete, clean, and uncompromised data in real-time. As more data is ingested and analyzed, Talend helps companies clearly understand, in a quantifiable way, the overall reliability, risk, and return of their data, — one of their most valuable business assets.   "Every business is now in the data business. In support of Talend’s growing market, I'm delighted to announce the addition of new cloud data infrastructure in Australia," said Stu Garrow, Senior Vice President and General Manager APAC at Talend. "As strategic partners to our customers, it's important that we offer insight on holistic, big-picture data solutions that solve business problems and give clarity and confidence in their data. I'm excited to see Talend's continued growth and this significant investment to create a framework designed for data health solutions of our customers' success."   For more information about Talend Data Fabric, see this page.   [1] Gartner, Gartner Forecasts Worldwide Public Cloud End-User Spending to Grow 23% in 2021, Press Release, April 21, 2021 [2] Gartner, “Forecast: Public Cloud Services, Worldwide, 2019-2025, 1Q21 Update”, Colleen Graham et al, March 25, 2021, End-User Spending Basis.

Talend Partners with Snowflake in Breakthrough Development to Deliver Healthy, Analytics-Ready Data at Scale inside Data Cloud

Technology collaboration assesses and improves data accuracy and reliability from directly inside Snowflake environments Redwood City, CA - June 9, 2021 - Talend, a global leader in data integration and integrity, today announced that it is working closely with Snowflake, the Data Cloud Company, to offer an instant way for  users to verify the quality of their data inside Data Cloud. Announced at Snowflake Summit 2021, Talend Trust ScoreÔ for Snowflake leverages Snowpark to immediately assess and improve data accuracy  inside a Snowflake environment, delivering quality data and helping companies drive quicker business decisions.   In a recent survey, at least half of executives don’t have a high degree of confidence in their company’s ability to deliver quality data in terms of data accuracy, consistency, accessibility, or completeness. To begin to address this concern, Talend is collaborating with Snowflake to deliver data quality capabilities within Snowflake. This will make it possible for organizations to make sense of all their data with speed and accuracy and more easily address compliance rules and regulations.   "With Talend and Snowflake, customers will be able to confidently make business decisions with healthy data, to uncover new business opportunities, accelerate growth, and increase customer engagement that can generate new revenue streams,” said Tarik Dwiek, Sr. Director of Technology Alliances.   Leveraging Snowflake’s Snowpark developer environment and Java UDFs, Talend Trust Score for Snowflake with Snowflake makes it possible for customers to use sophisticated data profiling algorithms directly to perform reliability checks on their Snowflake data. With a simple click, Snowflake customers will be able to increase their performance and accuracy by running quality checks on entire data sets without the use of external applications or moving sample sets. It also addresses data privacy and sovereignty concerns by keeping processing inside Snowflake so no data leaves the environment. Talend runs, computes, and scales entirely natively within Snowflake using Snowpark and Java UDF, reducing risks, complexity, and costs, and helping organizations meet compliance rules and regulations.   “It’s not enough to simply collect, move and prepare data more efficiently. The need for trusted data aligns with conversations I’m having with customers and many of our consulting and delivery partners,” said Rolf Heimes, Global Head of Business Development, Talend. “Data has become a black box that leaves us open to inefficiencies, missed opportunities, and even catastrophic failure. There needs to be a way to provide a clear perspective on the reliability, usability, and value of the data in any organization. As a first step, Talend has developed Trust Score for Snowflake to give Snowflake users an easy way to keep their business safer and bring confidence to every decision.”   For more information on Talend Trust Score for Snowflake, please visit this blog.

Despite Data’s Importance, More than a Third of Business Leaders Don’t Use It for Critical Decisions

Redwood City, CA - May 11, 2021 - Talend, a global leader in data integration and integrity, today released the results of a survey1 that highlighted the challenges businesses face in becoming data-driven organizations and the solutions to these challenges. It’s clear that business leaders know how important data is — two-thirds report that they use data every day. Yet 78% of these leaders say they face challenges in using their data, and more than a third say they simply aren’t using it to make decisions.   There’s a difference between data-saturated and data-driven. Companies have more access to data than ever before, but there’s very little way to make sense of it. Only half of the executives highly rate their ability to deliver the basics: timely, accessible, complete, and accurate data. Data management companies have been offering to solve these problems for years — but they’re focused on the mechanics of data like moving it and storing it.   “Our relationship with data is unhealthy. Only 40% of executives always trust the data they work with, and more than a third of executives are still making decisions based on gut instincts,” said Christal Bemont, CEO, Talend. “The reality of data is falling well short of the industry’s vision. Data management, which largely focuses on moving and storing data, doesn’t take into account the overall health of data. Therefore, in trying to manage data, companies are in fact creating digital landfills of corporate information. This has to change. Our vision of data health is the future because it recognizes fundamental standards for quality and reliability are critical for corporate survival.”   Data health is Talend’s vision for a holistic system of preventative measures, effective treatments, and a supportive culture to actively manage the well-being of corporate information. It is designed to allow companies to answer basic questions about their data that remain challenging for many to address — where it resides, who has access to it, whether it’s accurate, and how much it’s worth. Data health would help organizations understand and communicate — in a quantifiable way — the reliability, risk, and return of this extremely critical business asset.   Customers report that a focus on data health is having a positive aspect on their business. “Without access to quality data on time, we could have never achieved the scale of analytics we are currently in,” said Ranadip Dutta, solution architect manager, Lenovo. “We now have flexibility along with scalability.”   Read the full survey report to discover the differences in how people who produce and deliver data feel about working with data, versus those who consume it. You’ll also learn more about industry data trends and whether functional groups in every organization are working with data effectively.   For more information on the Talend Data Health Survey and data health, click here.    1 From March 24th to April 8th, 2021, Talend led a survey via Qualtrics of 529 global executives — with titles ranging from director to the C-suite — from medium and large companies making more than $10 million in annual revenue to assess their ability to make data-driven decisions.
