Talend Data Management Platform Room for Improvement

Systems Integration Specialist at a university with 501-1,000 employees
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 the product was intentionally made. That way you don't have organizations using the open-source version and instead of using the paid version. 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. It will make it easier to share code with teammates. This is most likely something that Talend Open Studio doesn't have intentionally so that organizations have to invest in the cloud. If Talend were to be able to offer an annual license in which the number of integrations is the deciding factor, instead of the number of concurrent users developing, then that would make them a little bit more competitive when you're comparing them to, for example, were Workato or SnapLogic.

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 requirements that we are working around and have to do some parsing of XML so this could make it easier. View full review »

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 work in. Documentation could also be more user-friendly as it seems cumbersome with too much information, which probably is why I have found inaccurate information. The application installation process needs improvement. They have an easy "non-secure" installation for trying out the subscription version. I would like to see installation instructions for a Production environment with system and server layout using SSL Security. It would go a long way to understand what Talend envisions as a best practice for a production environment. View full review »

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 built-in calls to Oracle Hyperion applications. As far as the next release, I would like to see connections to SAP work a bit better. They have a little lag, but this is just me reaching for something because they asked. View full review »

Business Intelligence and Data warehouse Section Head & Pre-Sales at a tech services company with 51-200 employees
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 see is changing the data capture and different connection abilities to the Oracle database because some connections are suitable for one customer and not for the other, as it is based on the environment architects or on the customer.

Consultant en intelligence dÃcisionnelle at a tech services company with 51-200 employees
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 have the ability with different environments to promote code easily from one to the other. They lack in memory capacity. We had to add a new job server to deal with the new system we had. I would like to see components added with routing and web services. We have many subsystems that are not being used with Talend to make them communicate. It would be better to have unified systems within Talend to be able to do so. Having it directly in Talend Data Management would be nice, or an ESB (Enterprise Service Bus) or some web service applications. Also to have a unified TAC, actually just having one environment or one Infospace for the entire environment. View full review »

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. View full review »
