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 which is important in my line of work. Both sections are beginning to be asked for by our clients. Unlike a few years ago, when it was either you doing a data integration or somebody else doing a data quality assessment, in this day and age they're actually asking for both, and it is a good platform to do both. The other thing about Talend is that it has a lot of push down features, wherein most of the execution that has to be done on the processing side, does not require much heavy lifting up. There's not much need to lift the data so that it can be processed and then pushed back to the database, which was traditionally the approach for the likes of Informatica and even DataStage if they're not using pushdown authentication. I put Talend on the same playing field as the other platforms and 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. View full review »

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 packaged jobs). TAC also manages user access to projects, which allows multiple users, working within the same project at the same time, while maintaining all code changes in SVN. Talend Studio has the ability to connect to almost anything to integrate data from files, databases, web services, etc. View full review »

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 join which produces a file on the target, there could be records that do not have a match. In other ETL tools, you would have to create a whole different process. In Talend, all you have to do is copy the inner join, and there is an option for rejects. Now you can create a separate file for your business users to review. View full review »
