Leading storage and organization retailer implements Talend‘s Data Integration solution to automate processes and eliminate information silos
Los Altos (CA) - April 1, 2013

Talend, a global open source software leader, today announced that The Container Store, the nation’s originator and leading retailer of storage and organization products, is deploying Talend Enterprise Data Integration to simplify, standardize and move data across multiple platforms. With Talend, The Container Store now has cross-platform standardization, improved development times and automated processes that were previously done manually.

With 6,000 employees and 59 locations around the country, The Container Store was challenged by a home-grown solution that required a different skill set for each platform, as well as multiple developers to learn disparate languages in order to move data across multiple platforms. Working with different database platforms across the organization, along with its own servers, The Container Store needed to standardize and have common languages between applications to work more efficiently.

“We have found Talend’s solution to be a very intuitive tool that is conceptually appealing, and natively supports all our platforms,” said Viet Le, IS Senior Data Analytics Engineer at The Container Store. “Previously, the siloed nature of our data caused significant problems for our business -- the biggest being difficulty in new development. With Talend, we have achieved a much simpler and faster development time. This has freed up our IT resources, since they no longer have to manually maintain our spreadsheets.”

Talend Enterprise Data Integration provides a set of data integration tools to access, transform and integrate data from any business system in real-time or batch to meet both operational and analytical data integration needs. With more than 450 connectors, it integrates almost any data source. The broad range of use cases addressed include massive scale integration (big data/NoSQL), ETL for business intelligence and data warehousing, data synchronization, data migration, data sharing and data services.

“It’s exciting to work with The Container Store and watch their business processes significantly improve with Talend’s data integration solutions,” said François Méro, Talend’s vice president of global sales. “Using an extensible and high-performing set of data integration tools enables companies like The Container Store to focus on maximizing the value of their data and achieve their overall business objectives.”
