In August 2016, Talend was recognized as a “Leader” in data integration by Gartner’s “Magic Quadrant for Data Integration Tools.” Talend is the first new vendor in five years to be added to the Leaders Quadrant, improving its position over 2015, moving up and to the right within the Magic Quadrant based on its completeness of vision and ability to execute. I believe this reflects a broader shift taking place in the market with the introduction of new cloud and big data platforms. Talend has fully embraced these technologies and today offers a compelling solution for organizations looking to become data driven.
2016 ushered Talend into a new era, not only with our IPO on the NASDAQ this summer but also with our expansion in the European market. Already having a strong presence in France, UK, and Germany, we have decided to set up shop in Italy, Spain, and the Netherlands as well as in Sweden to cover the Nordic region, where the adoption of Big Data and Cloud technologies is growing by leaps and bounds. This is why this year we are happy to be welcoming customers and users from all over Europe so that they can share their feedback with us.
