"A helpful feature for us is the integration with NoSQL databases.""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.""The initial setup was quite straightforward. The deployment took between two and three days.""You can use Talend as a stand-alone application without customization to collect data and generate reports over dashboards. It's got great functionality.""This solution has improved our overall time to value for data ingestion.""The drag-and-drop feature in the interface is very good.""Talend Studio has the ability to use it to ensure data quality.""We're sold on the customization part of the solution."

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."

More SAP Data Services Cons »

"The price for Talend Data Integration should be less expensive.""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 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.""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.""Inter-version compatibility is a problem, and migration projects between versions are required.""Having additional training materials, such as a video tutorial, would be an improvement.""The technical support and documentation need a lot of work to come up to standard.""It gets the job done but it's a bit slow."

"Talend is free and you can download it.""The paid version of this solution has a very high price, but even with the limitations, the Community version works fine.""Price could be lower. It is getting too expensive when compared to some other solutions, which is actually a little bit concerning.""There are many versions available and one is open-sourced which is free.""The cost for one year for the ETL tools, not for the big data, is 6K per year. It is a good price."
