Talend Data Quality Review

Good and easy debugging functions while better tools for geo-data are needed.

Valuable Features

Maybe the best thing is the product's easy start-up level when you are familiar with Java. Also job creation is fast compared to some other tools. One more good thing is that tables' metadata is easy to bring into the tool and utilize. Last thing to mention here is flexibility to use Java code inside the job.

Improvements to My Organization

These are: fast job creation from start to finish which improves ROI, good and easy debugging functions.

Room for Improvement

First, We faced problems with stability of the products. Also some components were clearly not tested well, which meant that there were bugs. Better tools for geo-data are needed. Documentation was poor in the beginning but it got better over time.

Use of Solution

Talend Enterprise Data Integration 5.1 (1) and Talend Platform for
Data Services (2)

2 years by one customer (without Data Quality (1)), 6 months in other customer (with Data Quality(2))

Deployment Issues

At the customer deployment to the production environment from the test one was a bit exhausting. This could be because they didn't use/know the best-practices.

Stability Issues

Yes we had issues. Quite often the server needed rebooting as if there were memory leaks. Sometimes the CVS version management got stuck.

Scalability Issues

No issues. Only issues were with the Java memory which is scalable and changeable from the job settings.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Customer Service:

Customer service was good most of the time. Answers came in a timely fashion.

Technical Support:

It was good most of the time. Answers came in a timely fashion.
