European Clothing Retailer Selects Talend to Optimize Digital Shopping Experience for Customers

Tape à l’oeil leverages the power of cloud data and APIs to increase sales and marketing efficiencies and develop a customer-360 approach Redwood City, CA and Suresnes, France - January 25, 2021 - Talend, a leader in data integration and data integrity, announced today that Tape à l’oeil, a French children’s clothing retailer founded in 1993, has selected Talend to accelerate its digital transformation. Talend is helping the retailer empower data workers and business users with trusted customer intelligence in real-time, to help them optmize and personalize the online shopping experience for its customers. The company is using Talend Data Fabric to speed information delivery and data exchange through APIs to manage their supply chain.They are also relying on Talend Stitch to rapidly integrate data from the Web and social media platforms and analyze sales performance.   In early 2020, Tape à l’oeil’s digital data strategy accelerated with the Covid-19 crisis. The company needed to optimize its online operations as the pandemic had accelerated the research online, purchase offline (ROPO) behaviours of their customers. With Talend, the company was able to better manage and optimize its entire supply chain: “If a product is not available at purchasing time, the sale is lost. There is both the risk that the customer will go to another store and that the product will have to be discounted at the end of the season,” said Guillaume Porquier, Chief Information Officer, Tape à l’oeil. “With COVID-19, some suppliers had to stop their activities, and the real-time monitoring of our supply chain gave us the agility to make the appropriate adjustments very quickly.”   With Talend, the company is also able to build a customer-360 approach through the delivery and timely access to trusted data. Internal and external data provides visibility to stores on customer behaviours and buying habits. This information can then be integrated into predictive models. And, with the data collected from the Web using Talend Stitch, the company can also enrich its customer marketing data with customer journey analysis and predictive analytics.   “The retail industry has been heavily impacted and disrupted with Covid-19 with a massive change in customers’ purchasing behaviours,” said Gareth Vincent, SVP of Sales EMEA, Talend. “Tape à l’oeil data strategy and achievements illustrate the importance on relying on complete, clean and trusted data to react faster and mitigate risk. We are proud to support Tape à l’oeil’s data journey and continuous growth.”   “Retail immediacy and proximity are keys to success in retail,” said Guillaume Porquier. “Information must flow from product design to sales, otherwise we can't do our job. Talend is our strategic partner in this process.”   For more information about how companies are using Talend solutions, please visit the website. You can read the full story here.

Talend Opens Second Cloud Data Center in Europe to Support Stitch Customer Growth

Helps European customers meet GDPR compliance and ease administrative burden following EU decision to invalidate Privacy Shield Redwood City, CA and Suresnes, France - December 15, 2020 - Talend, a global leader in data integration and integrity, today announced the opening of its newest European data center exclusively for Stitch, the company’s cloud data ingestion service that moves data from over 130 sources into a data warehouse of their choice with no coding required. The Frankfurt-based data center, operated by Amazon Web Services (AWS), is already fully operational and has been hosting customers since early November 2020. In July 2020, the European Union (EU) made the landmark decision to invalidate the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework, ruling it insufficient to keep European citizens’ data safe when transferring it to the US. As a result, the four-year-old framework can no longer be used to demonstrate compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), significantly raising the risk of non-compliance and financial penalties, and creating an additional administrative burden. “We are extremely proud to announce that our newest European Data Centre is now open for business, exclusively for Stitch customers,” said Gareth Vincent, SVP of Sales EMEA, Talend. “We have always been fiercely committed to helping customers meet and maintain compliance with their local data sovereignty requirements. This extends to our managed cloud applications. By launching support exclusively for Stitch within the EU, we can help customers navigate the strict regulatory environment, meet their own data and compliance goals, while also offering the same fully-managed data pipeline service that powers thousands of Stitch customers around the world.” Talend launched its latest data center for Stitch to help customers better manage data security and compliance during data transfers – removing some of the burden from Digital Protection Officers (DPOs) and cutting cost and complexity.  Talend’s Stitch offering provides businesses with immediate access to data, which is often siloed across hundreds of SaaS apps and databases. Enabling access to this data helps analysts spend more time generating the actionable insights that business leaders need and less time on data preparation. “Today, data is at the heart of everything we do,” says Guillaume Porquier, Information Systems Director, at children’s fashion retailer, Tape à l’œil.“If a product is not available at a certain time, the sale is lost. You run the risk both that the customer will turn to another retailer, and that the product will have to be sold at a discount at the end of the season. With COVID-19, some suppliers have had to suspend operations, and the real-time management of our supply chain allowed us to make the appropriate course changes very quickly.” Guillaume continues; “Stitch has played a crucial role in this, enabling us to capture digital traffic data from European merchant websites and post-KPIs for our management team, as well as capture customer feedback through surveys from different angles. Finally, Stitch retrieves campaign results from Facebook and Instagram to cross-reference them in Snowflake, making all this information available to the various disciplines. All our systems and data are hosted in Europe – cloud or on-premise – as part of the company’s GDPR compliance strategy. As we are expanding the use of Stitch and use cases, I am glad Talend has opened a new data center for Stitch in the EU, further supporting our data journey.” To discover all the capabilities and move data rapidly and securely into cloud data warehouses for analysis, customers can sign up for an account here.
