Talend Launches New Cloud Accreditation Program for Partners

Comprehensive program provides Talend customers with highly skilled experts for cloud integration projects

Redwood City, Calif. - September 17, 2019 - Talend, a global leader in cloud data integration and data integrity, today announced the launch of a new partner accreditation program for its global ecosystem, which recognizes partners for their skills and capabilities to implement cloud integration projects of any scope. This accreditation showcases Talend’s commitment to a skilled partner network focused on helping customers achieve success with their cloud journey.

“This new accreditation program from Talend will play an integral role in keeping us connected to a partner with the right skills to fast-track our implementation,” says Anthony DeMaio, Director of Business Intelligence at Crown Uniform. “As an example, Abilis is part of Talend’s accreditation partner program. They are great to work with, and this latest program ensures they will be best equipped to continue to help us grow our business.”

Providing the resources to help partners improve their skills when working with customers on cloud implementations, the program measures completion of in-depth training, completion of successful customer projects, and demonstrated market expertise. The accreditation includes training for Talend Cloud, a unified, comprehensive, and highly scalable integration platform-as-a-service (iPaaS) that enables customers to collect, govern, transform, and share data. Participating partners can earn either the “trained,” “skilled,” or “expert” cloud accreditation levels, which customers can take into consideration when selecting a partner to help them achieve their business objectives.

“Talend’s new accreditation program serves as a differentiator in the market for us. It will provide prospective customers with a more tailored experience and the confidence that we are the right fit,” says Dave Cook, Business Development Director at Wavicle. “We’ve just achieved 'expert' cloud accreditation level and anticipate exponential growth in customer leads through the Talend web site. We look forward to continuing this strong partnership with Talend in the years to come.”

To date, a broad range of global partners have achieved Talend’s new cloud accreditation, including: Cloud Expert Level recipients: Abilis, Cimt, Cap Gemini, Datalytyx, Intodata, Keyrus, Wavicle, and Ysance; Cloud Skilled Level: Confexx, JEMS, and Synaltic; and Cloud Trained Level: Business & Decision, CGI, Edgematics, Edgedatawave, Elternativa, Quinscape, Servian, Sopra Steria, and Vo2.

“We implemented this program to further invest in our partners and together drive increased customer success in a wide range of cloud integration, cloud migration, and cloud data warehouse projects. With this program, we can help our customers identify the right partners to work with on their cloud projects,” says Rolf Heimes, VP of Alliances at Talend. “This accreditation program rewards our partners with a valuable differentiator that showcases the skillset required to support any given job for our customers.”
