X2Engine, a leading provider of open source CRM solutions, today announced it has embedded Talend Enterprise Data Integration inside X2CRM, its next generation, open source, Social Sales Management application, to help streamline contact and sales actions into a compact, social user interface.

“When seeking a partner in the data integration market, we found that Talend offers a solution whose reliability and performance is compatible with the CRM solution we have built our core business around,” said John Roberts, founder and CEO of X2Engine.“Talend Enterprise Data Integration provides the ability to easily share data with other systems such as Salesforce.com, Microsoft CRM, Marketo, SAP and Amazon Cloud Services, as well as to connect directly to Oracle, SQL Server, MySQL, DB2 databases and file stores, thereby increasing the information throughput an organization can process.”
Built on the Talend Unified Platform, Talend Enterprise Data Integration provides a comprehensive solution to access, transform and integrate data from any business system in real time or batch to meet both operational and analytical data integration needs. Talend Enterprise Data Integration offers more than 450 connectors to a broad range of technologies and applications, as well as the most popular Cloud SaaS and Social applications. New connectors continue to be added on a regular basis, either by the open source community or by Talend’s R&D organization.
