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. It's got great functionality.The initial setup was quite straightforward. The deployment took between two and three days.We have contacted their technical support. They are great. They offer very professional help. If I need some technical answer, they are very professional. They are quick, professional, and very accurate.A helpful feature for us is the integration with NoSQL databases.

Cons
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 template mapping could be easier.The interface needs improvement. It is really too technical. That is the main problem.Reduced cost would allow more customers to choose the product. It's quite expensive in relation to the cost of other similar solutions.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.I really like this tool, but the administration should be on the same client application because a lot of administration features are not on the client-side, and they usually need to have administrative access. It's quite complicated to force IT teams to have separate administrative access from the developers.The documentation and in-application help for this solution need to be improved, especially for new features.The interface needs work to be more user-friendly.

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.
