Talend, the global leader in big data integration software, announced the dates, location, speakers and key elements of its 7th annual user conference—Talend Connect. A must-attend event for every business decision maker, CIO, data scientist or chief architect, this two-day conference will explain how to take the complexity out of enterprise information integration and transform businesses into data-driven organizations.
Keynotes will be given by leading investment advisor and analytics savant, Bernard Liautaud, Talend CEO, Mike Tuchen and Talend CTO, Laurent Bride. Join Talend’s French-based enterprise customers to hear why they rely on the company’s data integration solutions and services. With breakout sessions on Spark, real-time big data, master data management, cloud, data prep and governance, Talend Connect is the premier event for learning from both Talend solution experts and other customers. It also provides an intimate forum for peer networking, idea sharing, and hearing what’s next for the industry.
Day one of the event will focus exclusively on Talend's partner ecosystem, highlighting our partners’ most significant achievements over the past year and offering them a chance to meet and engage with members of Talend’s Research & Development team.
“Keyrus partnered with Talend five years ago with the goal of showing organizations how they can benefit from data and application integration,” said Edouard Cante, Talend partnership manager at Keyrus. “Talend’s Data Fabric platform—including data integration, data quality and master data management, in addition to its real-time Big Data solution—perfectly aligns with our Data Intelligence offering and is a key element of our overall business strategy.”
On day two of the show, Talend customers—including Air France-KLM, l'Ordre National des Pharmacies, Schneider Electric and m2ocity—will take the stage to explain how they worked with Talend to revolutionize their business and get the most of their data. Talend Connect will also offer live product demos of the company’s newest innovations, as well as deep-dive workshops on specific business use cases.
“We are very excited to welcome our valued partners, customers and all the members of the open source community to this year’s Talend Connect conference,” said François Mero, Senior VP of Sales EMEA at Talend. “We’ve undergone so much growth and product innovation in the last year that we’re bursting to share during this extraordinary event, which also offers attendees the opportunity to share insights with their peers and interact with Talend Executives and industry experts.”
