Talend Cloud Enables Online Betting Platform PointsBet to Ensure Compliance and Reliability Amid Rapid International Expansion

Governing diverse data sources with speed on Microsoft Azure, Talend helps support the delivery of a differentiated mobile betting experience to PointsBet’s customers worldwide Redwood City, CA and Melbourne, Australia - February 12, 2019 - Talend, a leader in cloud data integration solutions, today announced that PointsBet, a cutting-edge online bookmaker from Australia offering both traditional fixed odds markets as well as PointsBetting, is using Talend Cloud and Microsoft Azure to deliver a differentiated mobile betting experience to just under 100,000 customers worldwide and support its international expansion. With Talend, PointsBet can connect and govern diverse data sources with speed, trust, and reliability across its IT infrastructure and comply with regulations as it expands globally. A minor glitch during a major sporting event can prove disastrous for online betting platforms, which need strong, resilient IT infrastructure. Losses can run into the millions of dollars as players take their business elsewhere and the reputational and brand damage can be hard to reverse. Robust data systems are also needed to comply with the myriad regulations that online bookmakers are subjected to, such as providing reports and information to authorities and racing organizations to meet license conditions. PointsBet turned to Talend to build a responsive, cloud-first data infrastructure and help meet compliance standards in Australia – a highly regulated market for betting in the world – and beyond, as it enters new markets. “PointsBet is fully digital, and it’s critical we can access data in every system to ensure a streamlined platform. Talend helps us quickly and efficiently integrate all of our data and ensure we’re compliant across the board,” said Maayan Dermer, BI, and Data Engineering Lead, PointsBet. “Talend is the glue between our systems, and has enabled us to reduce troubleshooting times from four to eight hours weekly down to an hour, while simultaneously improving our data reliability and stability.” With Talend, PointsBet uses data to improve the customer experience for new products and promotions and ensure it delivers personalized offerings based on customer variables. PointsBet also uses data to determine the relative success of its different wagering products, including which products attract more people, deliver better margins, or have better engagement. PointsBet standardized on Microsoft Azure due to its scalability to handle peak online gaming requests and agility to quickly spin up new projects. Talend was a natural fit with out-of-the-box native support for Azure Blob Storage, CosmosDB, SQL Data Warehouse, SQL Server, Azure SQL Server, and Native SQL Server, as well as the flexibility to run workloads in the Cloud or on-premises. As PointsBet, who just recently was licensed to operate in New Jersey, starts expanding throughout the US, Talend will play a vital role in supporting the roll-out of its Data Analytics infrastructure and ensuring the company maintains compliance with varying state regulations. With Talend Cloud, PointsBet is able to provide a unified view of all of its data and comply with the periodic reports and requests of the online betting industry. Dermer added, “What was estimated for an engineer to hand-code in two weeks can now be done in four hours with Talend. We can now move faster and have better visibility into our business. Additionally, with Talend, we can work better with the regulators. When they see how responsive you are, how compliant you are, it gives them confidence in your business.” “It’s critical for data systems to maintain reliability and trust, especially in the cloud- and digital-first systems, not to mention when you are managing significant sums of money,” said Ciaran Dynes, SVP of Products, Talend. “PointsBet is using data to quickly respond to dynamic requests internally and externally. We’re proud to support the company as it grows and expands into new markets.” Additional information on how PointsBet is using Talend can be found here.

Redwood City, CA - January 7, 2019 - Talend, a global leader in cloud data integration solutions, today announced that Forrester Research recognized the company as a Strong Performer in its newly published report, The Forrester Waveä: Strategic iPaaS and Hybrid Integration Platforms, Q1 2019. Forrester notes that Talend offers “data, application, B2B, and IoT integration in a single iPaaS environment, for cloud and/or on-premises integration scenarios.” Forrester defines strategic integration-platform-as-a-service (iPaaS) and hybrid integration platforms (HIPs) as “strategic elements of digital transformation” by enabling companies to “manage data in motion in a faster landscape using software-as-a-service (SaaS)” and “improve the automation of IT and the business.” According to Forrester, the report, which is available for complimentary download, shows how each provider measures up and helps Enterprise Architecture (EA) professionals make the right choice.” Talend’s pricing model is also described by Forrester in the report as a “predictable by-the-user subscription model, while most iPaaS competitors use a consumption model (pinned to volume, connectors, and/or CPU usage).” Forrester also explains Talend is “available on private clouds as well as in a multi-cloud environment, providing the capability to take advantage of spot instance pricing to diminish runtime costs.” In addition, when describing strategic iPaaS/HIP, Forrester highlights that “integration technologies are renewing midsize markets and opening new ones.”  The market is “growing, with solutions like iPaaS in the cloud not requiring architect or developer training. Today’s iPaaS solutions are also faster to implement than previous technologies, supporting the pace of agile development cycles and governance.” “We are thrilled to be recognized as a Strong Performer in Forrester’s prestigious Wave, which we view as another strong validation of Talend’s innovative cloud data integration solutions,” said Ashley Stirrup, CMO, Talend. “We believe that this recognition confirms our approach to providing modern businesses today with a unified platform that scales to very high data volumes, natively integrates with the leading cloud platforms and databases, and delivers robust, built-in data governance and data quality.” With built-in data governance and data quality, the Talend platform scales to very high data volumes with native integration to leading cloud platforms and databases. Talend offers a single Integration Platform-as-a-Service (iPaaS) environment that helps organizations put more data to work by increasing its availability, quality, and value.

Talend Enables Energy Company Uniper to Analyze Data at Scale in the Cloud

Leverages Talend and a Snowflake Modern Data Lake in the Microsoft Azure Cloud Platform to Reduce Integration Costs by 80% Redwood City, CA - December 11, 2018 - Talend, a leader in cloud data integration solutions, today announced Uniper, an international energy company, is using Talend to power its Uniper Data Analytics Platform. Talend integrates data coming from nearly 100 external and internal sources, including ETRMs, DWHs, IoT data coming from power station sensors and SAP enterprise data, into a Snowflake cloud-built data warehouse that enables a modern, central data lake on Microsoft Azure. This deployment helps business users access real-time industry, customer, and financial data to react better and faster to the market and improve energy trading. The utility and power industry is in the midst of the biggest disruption in decades. According to the IEA, oil, gas, and coal represent about 80% of primary energy demand. However, current sector forecasts for energy demand from the IEA suggest that renewables and nuclear will grow the fastest between 2013 and 2040 (6.7% and 2.3% CAGR respectively. In response, forward-looking public and investor-owned utilities are leveraging cloud computing, automation, and multichannel communication to transform their back-office and operations systems. These technology-driven approaches are improving the way that utilities engage with residential, commercial, and industrial customers, moving beyond outage maps and online bills to provide operations updates, energy/resource efficiency programs, and tailored rate structures. “By enabling us to integrate, centralize, and standardize our most valuable data, Talend gives us a single point of truth for decision support,” said René Greiner, Vice President for Data Integration, Uniper SE. “Employees in selected departments now have the support of data self-services to make the right decisions faster while ensuring high data quality and governance.” Uniper was facing the challenge of expanding its market position while attempting to gain agility and improve efficiency. In 2017, the idea of an organization-wide data strategy emerged where selected business functions, including energy trading, risk management, sales and finance should be able to quickly and easily access market and customer data as well as internal key figures and financial data. To create its Data Analytics Platform, Uniper selected Tableau along with Talend to integrate data into a Snowflake modern, central data lake in the Microsoft Azure Cloud Platform. This action helped reduce integration costs by 80%, while ensuring data governance. In addition, Uniper uses Talend Data Catalog including end to end metadata management capabilities, which intelligently indexes all data sources in the company to make them accessible in a self-service process. Through the Uniper Data Analytics Platform, business users are now able to improve trading in energy markets and offer electricity and gas in the right quantities at the right time. “We’re thrilled to help Uniper bring all their external and internal data into a modern, central data lake in the cloud,” Snowflake’s General Vice President EMEA, Thibaut Ceyrolle said. “With data from a variety of sources in one place, Uniper can benefit from rapid analytics and derive data-driven insights.” Compliance was also a major driver of Uniper’s digital transformation. Documenting and reporting trading transactions is a regulatory challenge for all energy companies; Uniper must report to European regulators every day on all the positions they have taken and all the deals they have transacted. The Data Analytics Platform helps Uniper better manage trade surveillance, including fraud detection, through easy access to accurate data and better data governance. Also, because of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), Uniper ensures the security and traceability of its sensitive data. With Talend, the company can tag data as sensitive and GDPR-relevant, and make sure the provided data is accurate. “Uniper has begun a complete digital transformation that is enabling them to better respond to the new needs and challenges of this rapidly changing industry where both competition and regulations are forcing companies to become data-driven,” said Ciaran Dynes, SVP of Products, Talend. “We are proud to support Uniper with their data journey in the cloud.” For more information about how Talend is helping Uniper enable self-service data access in real-time to better respond to market changes, check out the case study.
