"The data lineage report can be filtered for reporting. The reports are user-friendly and take less time to find what you need.""The ETL tools are probably the most valuable feature.

"Talend Studio has the ability to connect to almost anything to integrate data from files, databases, web services, etc.""The basic tools are easy to pick up and understand.""They're very competitive in terms of performance, which is a good selling point. It has very rich features. It provides a very rich feature set in the application.""The most valuable feature is integration.""The features that I like the most are the simplicity of the interface, and the ability to quickly develop with a predefined component.""I like the way that you can use the context variables, and how you can work those context variables to give you values and settings for every development environment, such as PROD, TEST, and DEV."

Cons
"We would be happy to see in next versions the ability to return several parameters from jobs. Now, jobs can return just one parameter. If they could return several parameters, that would be great.""Reduced cost would allow more customers to choose the product. It's quite expensive in relation to the cost of other similar solutions.""The interface needs improvement. It is really too technical. That is the main problem.""The template mapping could be easier.""There are three things that could improve - the cloud, monitoring and cloud integration. It's a solid product but not a modern one and of course it depends what you're looking for.""The setup is extremely difficult.""The pricing should be lower.""The response time from support is slow and needs to be improved."

"The documentation from version to version could be more accurate.""Once you get past the basic tools, it gets pretty complicated.""Including either XML or JSON in the next release would definitely be a good transformation. I'm not sure if Talend has that feature, but it's one of those requirements that we are working around and have to do some parsing of XML so this could make it easier.""Performance and speed could be improved.""They lack in memory capacity.""I would like to sync a project and do an upload from that current version, and then from GitLab, be able to download the latest one."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The cost is too high.""It's very expensive.""Our internal team takes care of group licensing and cost. We don't have individual licenses. We have group licensing at the company level. Usually, IBM doesn't charge anything separately on the licensing side. For storage and everything else, we are paying around $6,000 per month, which is not very high. It includes Linux data storage, execution, and licensing. They're charging $40 for one-hour execution. Based on that, we are spending around $2,000 on the production environment and $1,000 on the lower environment for testing and development-side executions. For the mainframe, we are using the Db2 mainframe database, and we are spending around $1,000 on the Db2 mainframe database as well. All this comes out to be around $6,000. We, however, would like to have some cost reduction.""The price is expensive but there are no licensing fees.""It is quite expensive."

"License renewal is on a yearly basis.""The pricing is a little higher than what I had expected, but it's comparable with I-PASS competitors."
