Talend (NASDAQ: TLND), a global leader in cloud and big data integration solutions, today announced its participation in Snowflake Computing’s 2018 Cloud Analytics World Tour, which includes 11 cities across the US, Europe and Australia. The goal of this worldwide roadshow is to reveal how cloud data warehouses can help extend the impact of traditional, on-premises warehouses, overcome current business challenges, and enable more widespread use of data for more informed decision-making.
“We view data warehousing in the cloud as the natural evolution of today’s data lakes, which require massive scalability, collaborative governance, accelerated data quality measures enabled by machine learning and widespread accessibility,” said Michael Pickett, SVP of Business Development and Partner Ecosystems for Talend. “We’re eager to join our cloud partners at Snowflake on this educational tour that will help customers better understand how to capitalize their data warehouses to enable more wide-spread, data-driven decision making.”
In the Gartner Big Data Adoption Survey, 52 percent of respondents state that determining how to get value from big data is one of their top three challenges, and the enterprise data warehouse was the most likely way for them to derive value from big data. Currently $10.2B of the market operates on premises and $1.2B in the cloud, however the cloud portion is projected to grow tremendously over the next four years.
During this four-month roadshow, attendees will gain evidence-based insights and the tools and techniques needed to increase business agility by overcoming the restraints of legacy warehousing infrastructure by utilizing the cloud. At each event, Talend will participate in an “Expert Panel” discussion and QA session with Snowflake, several other vendors and customers, to reveal how a built-for-the-cloud data warehouse can transform current business challenges into successes.
Talend will also lead its own break-out session at each event titled, “Turning Any Data into Consumable Analytics in the Cloud.” In this session, participants will discover how to improve connectivity across a dispersed array of both structured and unstructured data, and enable more employees with governed, self-service access to that information utilizing the cloud, so people have the right data available to them when and where they need it.
“Customers of all sizes are looking for ways to increasingly use the cloud to scale operations, better serve distributed members of the organization, speed time to market and maximize overall value delivered to the business,” said Walter Aldana, VP of Alliances at Snowflake. “We’re thrilled to have Talend—a leader in cloud and big data integration solutions—join our Cloud Analytics World Tour and help us educate the market on how cloud data warehoused can deliver scalable and integrated analytics with governed, self-service access to unify tools, people and data for more effective and insightful decision making.”
