What is most valuable?I have been using very basic features, but one of the features that I liked the most is how it handles different contexts. I like the way that you can use the context variables, and how you can work… more »
How has it helped my organization?Since I am using it for an ongoing project, I haven't been able to deliver on that project. It is going to help us in changing the way we look at integrations and not have deployed from a strictly… more »
What needs improvement?While I understand that I am using the open-source version, but the facility of having version control is to the point where you can share it with other developers in the team. I think that's the way… more »
What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?The pricing is a little higher than what I had expected, but it's comparable with I-PASS competitors. It's on the higher side because it's a developer-user licensed solution. It makes you look at the… more »
Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?We are currently in the process of selecting an I-PASS solution and right now, the Talend Data Management Platform is one of the finalists. We are ironing out the differences and seeing how much we… more »
What other advice do I have?For anyone looking to use this solution, I would suggest using the open-source version first. I have been told that there are missing features, but I haven't found what those components are. I can… more »

What is most valuable?As far as the features that I have found most valuable, it's fairly easy to understand, even for someone inexperienced going from Informatica and DataStage to Talend. The other positive thing, although I haven't used it personally, is that it shares the same platform as the data quality solution… more »
What needs improvement?I don't see any additional need for improvement, at least not in the use cases that I've encountered so far. I'm not sure if they have it, but 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… more »
What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?Clients are looking for options. Before using Talend, when I was building Informatica and DataStage, they both were the "big bucks" kind of data integration and clients are desperate for deep-dive data warehousing because of the expense. But with Talend, it provides both a quick startup with their… more »
What other advice do I have?I would advise potential customers to try Talend's community edition. It would be a good strategy for them to get their hands and feet wet using the community so they'll understand the ins and outs of those sites. It works well for the product because you get traction in terms of adoption and… more »

What is most valuable?The most valuable feature is the Talend Admin Console (TAC). It connects Studio to SVN (Code Repository), Nexus (Artifacts/Build Packages), and Job Servers (Runs Nexus… more »
How has it helped my organization?This solution has allowed us to use more technical individuals for data integration that don't otherwise have expertise in SQL, Stored Procedures, and/or Perl scripting… more »
What needs improvement?The documentation from version to version could be more accurate. I have found information that is inaccurate or doesn't apply to the version I am trying to install or… more »
What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?For a production environment, plan to separate the Talend suite of systems onto their own servers for easier management with 'security updates' and secure each one for… more »
Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?We used Perl and SQL for data integration.
What other advice do I have?Having developers that are familiar with Java and Tomcat will be very helpful but not required when using Talend.
Which other solutions did I evaluate?We did evaluate other solutions, although I can't remember the names. They were either more expensive and/or didn't have a community/free version that compared to Talend's… more »

What is most valuable?I love the fact that I can copy a step, click a button, and now I have the opportunity to create the opposite of what I was doing. For example: If I am creating an inner… more »
How has it helped my organization?Implementing Talend can easily speed up implementation time and reduce the amount spent on the learning curve. Talend reminds me of a tool I used years ago called Hyperion… more »
What needs improvement?There are no natural connections for some of the applications that I use more regularly. I think that if Talend wants to disrupt the market a bit, they could create… more »
What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?Make sure you wait until the end of the quarter to get the best deal. Try to talk to multiple salespeople, and sometimes you can get multiple discounts. Let me know, and I… more »
Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?My solutions are client dependent. I do help them evaluate which tool they should use in some cases, but I can't say "I had this tool and I switched because of XYZ".
What other advice do I have?Just be careful to think through everything that you want to do. There are reusable parts to Talend. Use the variables properly. This is advice for any ETL solution.
Which other solutions did I evaluate?My solutions are client dependent. I do help them evaluate which tool they should use in some cases, but I can't say "I had this tool and I switched because of XYZ".

What is most valuable?It is a very powerful solution to manage historical data and this is one of the key features that I love the most.
What needs improvement?An area that needs improvement is the administration of data and granting permission for the different developers working on the product at the same time. Talend is a great development tool but the administration, access rights, synchronization and phoning can be better. New features I would like to… more »
Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?I used Oracle Data Integrator and IBM but I replaced it with Talend. I like that Talend is straightforward. By using Talend we can simulate the theoretical information with the practical exercise.
What other advice do I have?I think Talend is one of the easiest tools for faster implementation compared to other tools. For example, if we're implementing the data integration solution with some other tool, it will take 10 days. But with Talend, it will take less than 50% of the time. So the tool is very easy, the interface… more »

What is most valuable?The features that I like the most are the simplicity of the interface, and the ability to quickly develop with a predefined component. Having the ability to mix both my own code created in Java with the predefined components is helpful. It… more »
What needs improvement?We were using TAC for the testing environments and another TAC for the production environment. We had to promote our code manually from one environment to another. I would like to see them add a feature in TAC that exists in TMC where you… more »
What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?License renewal is on a yearly basis.
Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?Previously, we were using TAC (Talend Administrative Console).
What other advice do I have?I have never spoken with Talend technical support directly over the phone or by mail, I was able to find my answers on the web. Overall, I am satisfied with Talend and I recommend it. I would rate Talend an eight out of ten.
Aug 26 2020
What is most valuable?The most valuable feature is integration. There are several connectors, there is a large community, and the solution updates often. It is always up-to-date.
What needs improvement?Performance and speed could be improved. They could improve on the scalability.
What other advice do I have?Talend is a good product and I recommend it. It is an open system, you have several connectors, it's evolved, and you are unlimited because of the great community. There are always people who may have had some of the same encounters and have found solutions to the same problems. I am still learning… more »
Which other solutions did I evaluate?Before choosing Talend, we evaluated DataStage and Informatica. We decided to go with Talend because it has an open-mindedness to it. It's not a closed system, you have a great community and in France, where I live, it is the leader and there are many people who can do a good job using Talend.
Feb 05 2020
What is most valuable?The scheduling part of the solution is very good. Talend has a lot of connectors, which is very useful. The user interface is good. It's very visual. The basic tools are easy to pick up and understand.
What needs improvement?Some components of the solution are not easy to exploit. The solution takes quite a long time to master, even with a visual interface. They should work to make it more user-friendly and easier to learn. Once you get past the basic tools, it gets pretty complicated.
What other advice do I have?I'm a user and a client. I'm a Data Integration Tech. I'd rate the solution six out of ten. It's my understanding that the solution is lining up a lot of new features to add and deploy in the near future. That will be great. I hope they continue to focus on new releases. There are only a few things that are straightforward, however. Many things take a lot of time to understand and get used to. If… more »
