Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"The logic is also simple. It makes it easy to build your extraction.""The fact that it's built on SQL, it makes it easy to write code. The database and the connection are quite smooth.""The user interface is ok.""It is a powerful product with a broad range of features.""The HANA database, which is very fast, is a valuable feature.""The reporting on the data, even from third-party software, is very good.""The maintenance of data services is the solution's most valuable feature.""The most valuable feature is the logging capability."

"The features that I find to be the most valuable are the extensibility, the integration, and the ease of integration with multiple platforms.""It is saving a lot of time. Today, we can mask around a hundred million records in 10 minutes. Masking is one of the key pieces that is used heavily by the business and IT folks. Normally in the software development life cycle, before you project anything into the production environment, you have to test it in the test environment to make sure that when the data goes into production, it works, but these are all production files. For example, we acquired a new company or a new state for which we're going to do the entire back office, which is related to claims processing, payments, and member enrollment every year. If you get the production data and process it again, it becomes a compliance issue. Therefore, for any migrations that are happening, we have developed a new capability called pattern masking. This feature looks at those files, masks that information, and processes it through the system. With this, there is no PHI and PII element, and there is data integrity across different systems. It has seamless integration with different databases. It has components using which you can easily integrate with different databases on the cloud or on-premise. It is a drag and drop kind of tool. Instead of writing a lot of Java code or SQL queries, you can just drag and drop things. It is all very pictorial. It easily tells you where the job is failing. So, you can just go quickly and figure out why it is happening and then fix it."

Cons
"Scheduling of jobs in the sequence is not available. It's a very tedious process to do that particular task. If there was a tool to schedule in the sequence that would be extremely helpful.""The description of error messages isn't extensive, although they point to the problem. With other solutions, like Talend, I was able to use the debugger to get directly to the problem, but with SAP Data Services the debugger is not working. I'm not sure if it's a problem with the version specifically, but I'm using it in an enterprise environment and I can't do an upgrade.""The initial setup is complex.""Newer feature integration is lagging behind the company acquisitions and the product could do more to service a broader range of devices.""Integration with other products could be improved.""The solution should offer more machine learning and automation.""The pricing of the solution should be improved.""The interface is not quite user-friendly and is in need of improvement."

"I would say that some of the support elements need improvement.""They don't have any AI capabilities. Talend DQ is specifically for data quality, which only has data profiling. With Talend DQ, I cannot generate any reports today, so I need an ETL tool. It provides general Excel files, or I have to create some views. If instead of buying a new tool, Talend provides a reporting capability or solution, it would be great. It will reduce the development effort for creating these kinds of reports. We also manage the infrastructure for Talend. From the licensing perspective, for cloud, they only have seat licenses where one person is tied to one license, but for on-premise, they have concurrent licenses. It would be really awesome if they can provide concurrent licenses for the cloud so that if one person is not there, somebody else can use that license. Currently, it is not possible unless a person deactivates his or her license and moves the same seat license to someone else. We are one of the biggest customers in the central zone of the US for Talend, and this is the feedback that we have provided them again and again, but they come back and say that they aren't able to provide concurrent licenses on the cloud. In version 7.3, there is a feature for tokenization and de-tokenization of data. This is the feature that we are looking for. It is useful if somebody wants to see what we have masked and how do we demask it. This feature is not there in version 7.1. There are also a few other capabilities on the cloud, but we don't yet have a big footprint in the cloud."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"Pricing is good, there is no problem.""The pricing is a little high to make the product more competetive in the marketplace.""Its pricing is as per the enterprise agreement and not a concern for us.""The price is very reasonable."

"It's a subscription-based platform, we renew it every year.""It is cheaper than Informatica. Talend Data Quality costs somewhere between $10,000 to $12,000 per year for a seat license. It would cost around $20,000 per year for a concurrent license. It is the same for the whole big data solution, which comes with Talend DI, Talend DQ, and TDM."
