Pricing Advice

What users are saying about Talend Data Quality pricing:
  • "It is cheaper than Informatica. Talend Data Quality costs somewhere between $10,000 to $12,000 per year for a seat license. It would cost around $20,000 per year for a concurrent license. It is the same for the whole big data solution, which comes with Talend DI, Talend DQ, and TDM."
  • "It's a subscription-based platform, we renew it every year."

Saves a lot of time, good ROI, seamless integration with different databases, and stable

What is our primary use case?

Talend has different modules. Talend has Talend Data integration (DI), Talend Data Quality (DQ), Talend MDM, and Talend Data Mapper (TDM). We have Talend DI, Talend DQ, and TDM. Our use cases span across these modules. We don't use Talend MDM because we have a different solution for MDM. Our EDF team is using an Informatica solution for that. We have a platform that deals with MongoDB, Oracle, and SQL Server databases. We also have Teradata and Kafka. The first use case was to ensure that when the data traverses from one application to another, there is no data loss. This use case was more… more »

Pros and Cons

  • "It is saving a lot of time. Today, we can mask around a hundred million records in 10 minutes. Masking is one of the key pieces that is used heavily by the business and IT folks. Normally in the software development life cycle, before you project anything into the production environment, you have to test it in the test environment to make sure that when the data goes into production, it works, but these are all production files. For example, we acquired a new company or a new state for which we're going to do the entire back office, which is related to claims processing, payments, and member enrollment every year. If you get the production data and process it again, it becomes a compliance issue. Therefore, for any migrations that are happening, we have developed a new capability called pattern masking. This feature looks at those files, masks that information, and processes it through the system. With this, there is no PHI and PII element, and there is data integrity across different systems. It has seamless integration with different databases. It has components using which you can easily integrate with different databases on the cloud or on-premise. It is a drag and drop kind of tool. Instead of writing a lot of Java code or SQL queries, you can just drag and drop things. It is all very pictorial. It easily tells you where the job is failing. So, you can just go quickly and figure out why it is happening and then fix it."
  • "They don't have any AI capabilities. Talend DQ is specifically for data quality, which only has data profiling. With Talend DQ, I cannot generate any reports today, so I need an ETL tool. It provides general Excel files, or I have to create some views. If instead of buying a new tool, Talend provides a reporting capability or solution, it would be great. It will reduce the development effort for creating these kinds of reports. We also manage the infrastructure for Talend. From the licensing perspective, for cloud, they only have seat licenses where one person is tied to one license, but for on-premise, they have concurrent licenses. It would be really awesome if they can provide concurrent licenses for the cloud so that if one person is not there, somebody else can use that license. Currently, it is not possible unless a person deactivates his or her license and moves the same seat license to someone else. We are one of the biggest customers in the central zone of the US for Talend, and this is the feedback that we have provided them again and again, but they come back and say that they aren't able to provide concurrent licenses on the cloud. In version 7.3, there is a feature for tokenization and de-tokenization of data. This is the feature that we are looking for. It is useful if somebody wants to see what we have masked and how do we demask it. This feature is not there in version 7.1. There are also a few other capabilities on the cloud, but we don't yet have a big footprint in the cloud."

What other advice do I have?

I would rate Talend Data Quality a nine out of ten.

Data management platform that is cost effective and easily implements data from multiple sources

What is our primary use case?

Our use cases vary, but mainly we are using it for implementing a master data management platform. We get data from multiple sources and create a golden ticket record that can be used for ingesting the data from that single source to any of the platforms.

Pros and Cons

  • "The features that I find to be the most valuable are the extensibility, the integration, and the ease of integration with multiple platforms."
  • "I would say that some of the support elements need improvement."

What other advice do I have?

It's a great technology. Be careful of the add ons and there are different packages. Most customers are fine with starting off with Data Management, but there are add ons. I would suggest sharing the requirements or the scope with Talend so that they have an understanding of the work features that are required to grow with the right brand of data fabric for data management. It's one of the leading platforms. It has customers who are looking for a good and cost-effective data integration platform, that can connect with multiple technologies. It has data integration and data management…
