Los Altos (CA) - April 30, 2013

Talend, the global integration software leader, today announced it has been named to UBM Tech Channel’s CRN 2013 Big Data 100 list. The inaugural list recognizes innovative technology vendors that offer products and services to help businesses manage “Big Data” – the rapidly increasing volume, speed and variety of information being generated today.

The list covers three categories: business analytics, data management, infrastructure and services. Vendors on this list are industry stalwarts leveraging their products and services to meet the Big Data challenge, as well as a wave of startups developing a new generation of products to help businesses address their Big Data needs.

“The 2013 Big Data 100 list recognizes vendors that have shown a dedication to the innovation and advancement of today’s Big Data services, and have evolved to meet the needs of today’s business leaders,” said Kelley Damore, Senior Vice President and Editorial Director, CRN. “Companies need technologies that not only help them process and manage all that data, but also offer market insights.  The Big Data 100 vendors set themselves apart with the cutting edge products and services that provide significant growth opportunities for solution providers to build their business and effectively compete in today’s information economy.”

Built on Talend’s award-winning open source integration technology, Talend Enterprise Big Data is a powerful and versatile Big Data integration solution that natively supports Apache Hadoop, including connectors for Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS), HBase, HCatalog, Hive, Oozie, Pig and Sqoop. Talend Platform for Big Data extends the solution and is the only Big Data platform to provide deeply integrated Big Data quality.

In 2012, Talend launched its redesigned partner program, the Talend Alliance Program, making it easier for organizations of all sizes to collaborate with Talend in bringing the benefits of data, application and process integration to their customers around the globe. Talend’s partnerships with leading Big Data platform providers including Cloudera, Hortonworks, MapR, EMC Greenplum, Google, Amazon and others provide users with the ability to choose the best solution for their needs.

“To be included in the CRN 2013 Big Data 100 list is recognition of our mission of making Big Data a reality for all organizations,” said Pat Walsh, Chief Marketing Officer, Talend. “We focus extensively on solutions that make deploying and managing Big Data technologies simple, without requiring specific expertise in these areas.”

Selected by CRN's editorial staff, the 2013 Big Data 100 list is featured in the April issue of CRN Magazine and will be featured online at www.crn.com.
