Talend (NASDAQ: TLND), a global leader in cloud and big data integration software, today announced the expansion of its partner program in Asia Pacific with the addition of five new members. The program, which was launched 18 months ago, has already successfully recruited 30 reseller partners in Asia Pacific. Talend’s partner program helps solution providers leverage Talend technologies and expert support to deliver offerings that solve the complex integration challenges enterprises face today.
“We’ve already experienced 100 percent growth year-over-year in the region, as Asian organizations prioritize building and executing an effective, holistic data and analytics strategy. Big data and cloud integration are key pillars of enabling digital transformation efforts in Asia, and we foresee accelerated growth in the coming year,” said Jason Bissell, General Manager and SVP of Sales, Asia Pacific, Talend. “Our partners already account for 52% of our revenues in the region and the expansion of our partner program is critical for helping us keep pace with increasing demand and achieving our goal of expanding regional market share in 2018.”
A recent IDC report predicts that at least 60 percent of Asian enterprises will be digitalized by 2020, with growth driven by digitally-enhanced offerings including big data, data analytics, cloud and artificial intelligence. Despite the potential in the world of data analytics, integrating the data can be a challenge – driving greater demand for data integration tools.

- GainInsights, a system integrator, Value-Added Reseller and Gold partner for Talend in India, takes a personalized approach to enabling businesses to unlock the value hidden in their data to yield actionable insights;
