What is most valuable?

We have used value frequency and patterns. We have been it impressed with these functions as they have helped us in making decisions in transformation work.

How has it helped my organization?

With its frequency function, we were able to pick a line of business to be addressed first in one of our conversion projects.

What needs improvement?

* Displaying columns, which are not part of join, in redundancy analysis. * You can't join more than two tables for analysis. * SQL for displaying underlying data in… more »

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

We did not purchase a separate license for DQ. It is part of our data platform suite, and I believe it is well-priced.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We were using an SQL and Excel combination.

What other advice do I have?

The Studio is easy to understand. The analysis and reports are easy to build as well. We have been using it for the past four to six months now. We do not have many… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

No. But we use Talend DI and ESB so wanted to explore this feature as well.

What is most valuable?

The solution enables robust data matching, merging, survivorship, and Data Stewardship that can be a part of data quality workflows or true master data management.

How has it helped my organization?

It allows our customers to master and expand their products to an international scale. In addition, it enables customers to consolidate multiple, disparate sources of data into a centralized, master data hub which can used for operations or analytics.

What needs improvement?

Needs integrated data governance in terms of dictionaries, glossaries, data lineage, and impact analysis. It also needs operationalization of meta data.

How has it helped my organization?

What needs improvement?

When we upgraded to Version 6.4.1, we tried using a GIT repository instead of a SVN repository. After a few incidents where things disappeared and changes were not saved… more »

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I have never had to deal with pricing and licensing. But I would advise to first take a look and at the Open Studio edition. Figure out what you need and purchase the… more »

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I’ve never used another solution.

What other advice do I have?

Keep your jobs small and simple, split large jobs into multiple smaller jobs. One of the major pitfalls is creating one huge job which does everything. This is detrimental… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

My company had already partnered with Talend before I started. We’re also using Informatica and we’re looking into Human Inference.

What is most valuable?

The ease of transforming data with inputs to TMaps and tJavaRow makes life so easy.

How has it helped my organization?

It lowers the amount of time in development from weeks to a day.

What needs improvement?

There is one place where I would appreciate an upgrade, if it is possible. If the SQL input controls could dynamically determine the schema-based on the SQL alone, it would simplify the steps of having to use a manually created and saved schema for use in the TMap for the Postgres and Redshift… more »

What other advice do I have?

I have not run into anything we could not use Talend to find a solution for.

What is most valuable?

* The file fetch process is impeccable. * We are able to get emails from URLs very easily using this function when others fail. * tLogRows are also great for finding bad data.

How has it helped my organization?

Coming into the department with no knowledge of Talend, the interface has been user-friendly enough to allow me to come up to speed in four to five months on almost all its functions and use it like a pro.

What needs improvement?

NullPointerExceptions are going to be the death of me and are a big reason for our transition away from Talend. One day, it is fine with a 1000 blank rows, then the next day, it will find one blank cell and it breaks down. When we are dealing with millions of rows of data, this can be super hard to find. Heap space issues also plague us consistently. We maxed it out and it runs fine, then it… more »

The ability to build the interface using clear components and access the code (Java) to validate and trace any error. The wide range of components which suits a variety of purposes and provides a flexible development environment to the coder.

What is most valuable?

I like the components provided by Data Quality, such as: * Address standardization * Fuzzy match * Schema compliance check as they pack lot of code, which is required to perform these standard data operations. * Doing the same by coding would be erroneous, take a lot of time, and provide output quality which is biased. Apart from specific components, I like idea of storing the results of Data… more »

How has it helped my organization?

This product speeds up the unit testing and QA for specific test scenarios. As a result, the development output quality can be evaluated and adjusted.

What needs improvement?

* The report generation and using the report in DI job steps could be improved. * There are too many functions which could be streamlined. * The report generated often has too many pages to go through, if not loaded into a DB. * There are more functions in a non-streamlined manner, which could be refined to arrive at a better off-the-shelf functions.

What is most valuable?

Maybe the best thing is the product's easy start-up level when you are familiar with Java. Also job creation is fast compared to some other tools. One more good thing is that tables' metadata is easy to bring into the tool and utilize. Last thing to mention here is flexibility to use Java code… more »

These are: fast job creation from start to finish which improves ROI, good and easy debugging functions.

First, We faced problems with stability of the products. Also some components were clearly not tested well, which meant that there were bugs. Better tools for geo-data are needed. Documentation was poor in the beginning but it got better over time.

Yes. We evaluated IBM DataStage.

JRules, TMap, TParallel, ELT, etc

It has provided the feature wherein the business could make the changes as requested without performing the ETL deployment code to production.

I think the memory issues we faced when using the 3GB RAM compared to the 4GB RAM computers caused lot of issues. Probably can improve in that.

What other advice do I have?

I would definitely recommend others to implement this product as it is really helpful, easy to learn, user friendly, provides lot of enhanced features, etc.
