We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The way that the solution scans is very useful."
"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."
"They have to improve their relationship discovery tool. They say that they have AI inside, but this AI did not automatically find relationships or suggested relationships between entities."
"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."
"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."
