We're sold on the customization part of the solution.Talend Studio has the ability to use it to ensure data quality.The drag-and-drop feature in the interface is very good.This solution has improved our overall time to value for data ingestion.You can use Talend as a stand-alone application without customization to collect data and generate reports over dashboards.

Cons
The setup and configuration process could be simplified.The user interface could use improvement. It's not a major issue but it's something that can be improved.The Microsoft documentation is too complicated.The product could provide more ways to import and export data.The speed and performance need to be improved.On the UI side, they could make it a little more intuitive in terms of how to add the radius components. Somebody who has been working with tools like Informatica or DataStage gets very used to how the UI looks and feels.The solution needs to integrate more with other providers and should have a closer integration with Oracle BI.The solution should offer better integration with Azure machine learning. We should be able to embed the cognitive services from Microsoft, for example as a web API. It should allow us to embed Azure machine learning in a more user-friendly way.

It gets the job done but it's a bit slow.The technical support and documentation need a lot of work to come up to standard.Having additional training materials, such as a video tutorial, would be an improvement.Inter-version compatibility is a problem, and migration projects between versions are required.There used to be many Youtube channels that offered Talend training, but now there don't seem to be any. The solution should offer more online training resources.The profiling perspective needs improvement. Instead of using it in the studio, we are using a different tool which is also provided by Talend. It's redundant.If I compare Open Studion to other solutions, their interface is robust but not so fancy looking. This is an area that could use improvement. I would like to see an updated interface.The price for Talend Data Integration should be less expensive.
