The framework was designed by the U.S. Department of Commerce and the European Commission to better support transatlantic commerce.

Enabling them to gain value and insight from their data while reducing regulatory and security risk is a top priority for Talend, and these certifications prove that.” Talend will showcase its cloud data integration offerings at the upcoming Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS 20) conference taking place in Orlando, Florida, from March 9-13 in booth #4221.

GDPR Compliance Rate Remains Low According to New Talend Research

Over half of companies surveyed were not able to meet data access and portability requests within the GDPR-specified one-month time limit Redwood City, Calif. - December 3, 2019 - 58% of surveyed businesses worldwide failed to address requests made from individuals seeking to obtain a copy of their personal data as required by GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) within the one-month time limit set out in the regulation, reveals updated research from Talend, a global leader in cloud data integration and data integrity. In September 2018, Talend released the results of its first GDPR research benchmark, which was aimed to assess the ability of organizations to achieve right to access and portability compliance with the European regulation. At that time, 70% of the companies surveyed reported they had failed to provide an individual's data within one month. One year later, Talend surveyed a new population of companies, as well as the companies which reported a failure to comply in the first benchmark, in order to map improvement. Although the overall percentage of companies who reported compliance increased to 42%, the rate remains low 18 months after the regulation came into force. "These new results show clearly that Data Subject Access Rights is still the Achilles' heel of most organizations," said Jean-Michel Franco, Senior Director of Data Governance Products at Talend. "To fully comply with GDPR it is necessary to understand where the data is, how it is processed and by whom, as well as ensure that the data is trusted. With several data protection regulations coming into force in the US (California Consumer Privacy Act in January 2020), across APAC (PDPA in Thailand in May 2020), and in Latin America (LGPD in Brazil in August 2020), organizations need to start a data governance transformation to deliver a 360 degree view of customers and empower the people in charge of data protection with more automated data processing and delivery. Organizations must do more to regain the trust of their data subjects and be aware that they risk very significant fines and significant reputational damage in the event of non-compliance and especially through class actions – both of which could prove to be severely detrimental to a business." Major findings of the research benchmark include:   The "Laggards": Public sector organizations and companies in media and telecommunications industries are struggling to meet the requests The research revealed that only 29% of the public sector organizations surveyed could provide the data within the one-month limit. With an increasing use of data and new technologies - facial recognition, artificial intelligence - by the public sector to improve the citizen experience, the need for more integrated data governance is a must-have for 2020 and beyond. The same observation applies to companies in the media and telecommunications industries; only 32% of these organizations reported that they could provide the correct data on time. The "Could Do Better": Retail, financial services, travel, transport and hospitality firms barely reach an average success rate Compared to last year, retail companies improved their success rate with 46% of such companies reporting they provided correct responses within the one-month limit. A greater proportion of companies in this industry started to take a customer-centric approach to both improve the experience and internal processes. The same situation occurs with organizations in finance as well as in travel, transport, and hospitality industries. In addition, the latter are considered as the best performers as companies in that industry represent 38% of all the organizations who provided data in less than 16 days.   The lack of automation remains a barrier to success One take-away from this new benchmark is the lack of automation in processing requests. One of the main reasons companies failed to comply was the lack of a consolidated view of data and clear internal ownership over pieces of data. In the financial services industry, for example, clients may have multiple contracts with a company that may not be located in one place making it difficult to retrieve all necessary information. Processing the requests thus remains very manual and often Involves the business users, e.g. the insurance representatives in the case of an insurance company. In addition, processing Subject Right Requests can be very costly; according to a recent Gartner survey, companies "spend, on average, more than $1,400 to answer a single SRR."[1] ID proof and requesting process should be improved The research also highlights the lack of an ID check during the data request process of the individual requesting data. Overall, only 20% of the organizations surveyed asked for proof of identification. Moreover, of the companies surveyed that reported asking for proof of identification, very few use an online and secure way of sharing ID documents. Instead, most of the time, copies of identification were provided by email. The requesting process also remains cumbersome with reported difficulties including finding the right email address to send the request, and follow up emails because the data is incomplete or because the files can't be opened.   The full results of the benchmark will be presented by Jean-Michel Franco at the Data Governance Winter Conference in Delray Beach, Florida.

Kiloutou implements self-service and governed data platform based on Talend Cloud and Snowflake

France’s second-largest industrial and construction equipment rental company leverages cloud data warehouse to help business units identify value-added opportunities and create new innovative services Redwood City, Calif. and Suresnes, France - November 28, 2019 - Talend, a global leader in cloud data integration and data integrity, today announced that Kiloutou Group, the 4th  largest European rental company and a major player in the rental of equipment in France is using Talend Cloud to power its data platform for business units. Talend Cloud provides reliable, real-time data to business departments within Kiloutou’s organization to enable access to data and conduct analysis, and thus detect new business opportunities. Talend integrates data into a Snowflake cloud-based data warehouse, which adds value to Kiloutou's businesses. To empower business departments by providing them with real-time data, Kiloutou has initiated a "Data for Business" project. This provides a unique, modern, agile, high-performance, and secure data platform that offers a new data experience. The new architecture makes it possible to empower businesses, including sales administration, management control, or logistics operations, in all types of commercial and exploratory analyses via data visualization tools, and then to disseminate information to group managers. "Our strategy is to transform data and information into competitive business advantages, bringing data as close as possible to the business lines. Having trusted information in real-time means being able to offer the right equipment at the best price and thus optimize our revenues," said Arnaud Maton, Head of Data Management, IT Group at Kiloutou. "With Talend, we have developed a new, modern, real-time, high-performance, and completely secure database that allows different businesses to access data at any time, regardless of volume, format, source, and time. We now have a single unified platform to integrate all the data used by our business divisions." Kiloutou has implemented a radical change in its architecture by migrating its historical on-site database to a data warehouse in the cloud on Snowflake with Talend Cloud. As an integration platform-as-a-service (IPaaS), Talend cloud helps to address Kiloutou's expectations in terms of scalability, performance, and security, and to free itself from installation, update, or migration constraints. Talend securely connects to all types of data, in the cloud or on-site, regardless of the formats and volumes managed. Talend also guarantees data quality, ensuring that formats are consistent between different systems. Thus, within Kiloutou, Talend is gradually becoming the component for inter-application data exchange for the entire information system, in addition to the existing business APIs management architecture. To optimize sales management, Kiloutou has implemented a new process for analyzing the pricing data of equipment rental. It analyzes many factors, such as the location of the booking, stock situation, customer's typology, and purchasing history. Talend now integrates all of this data into the Snowflake data warehouse, which represents more than 10 million records per day. On the business side, analysts can now adjust prices to reflect these different trends better, implement complete and accurate predictive models to optimize revenues, and quickly trigger sales action plans if problems are identified. Kiloutou also achieved significant improvements in its financial management, particularly for financial controllers, who now benefit from near-real-time analysis for the validation of monthly accounts. "All companies in all sectors are experiencing unprecedented change. Leaders will be the organizations that will be able to leverage the value of data and make more data-based decisions," said Jacques Padioleau, Vice President of Sales France at Talend. "By migrating its data integration and analysis capabilities to the cloud, Kiloutou is undergoing a real transformation and gaining a competitive advantage. We are very pleased to be able to support Kiloutou in its mission to provide its business departments with reliable, real-time data for better decision making."
