We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"I think Talend is one of the easiest tools for faster implementation compared to other tools."
"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."
"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."
"The stability is good, but the performance is slower when I work on a huge amount of data."
"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."
"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."
"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."
"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."
