According to Gartner, Inc., “The biggest changes in the market from 2015 are the increased demand for data virtualization, the growing use of data integration tools to combine "data lakes" with existing integration solutions, and the overall expectation that data integration will become cloud- and on-premises-agnostic.”1
“For the first time in five years, the Magic Quadrant for Data Integration has a new company positioned as a leader,” said Mike Tuchen, CEO, Talend. “We’re very proud of this achievement, which I believe is representative of the 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.”
