What is most valuable?

The interface is very user-friendly. The solution's API and integration are very important to us. We most often use the ETL features, and then export to, for example, chart files. We also use functions related to connectors, for example… more»

How has it helped my organization?

This product is going to replace any engagement with human beings. For example, we have integrated with several systems but we do not do the integration manually. Another example is that we track lots of servers and our scheduled workflow… more»

What needs improvement?

The price for Talend Data Integration should be less expensive.

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

We use different solutions depending on the needs of the customer, including budgetary considerations. We try to use Talend as much as possible but there are some cases where it does not fit. For example, we cannot provide a solution with… more»

What other advice do I have?

We are totally satisfied with this product. We have not found any problems. It is an open-source, platform-independent, and pretty stable. My only complaint is that the commercial version is very expensive. There are some limits, but the… more»

What is most valuable?

The feature I like most of all in Talend Studio is the ability to use it to ensure data quality. I like the product because it presents an easy and understandable way to implement data quality features. I license the product specifically because of its ability to handle that type of routine.

What needs improvement?

I do not have so many issues with the product itself but when I do and I contact technical support, the technical support has not always been very good. At times I have had to wait too long to get a solution from them — sometimes even months rather than days. Technical support should definitely be improved. I think the user interface is an advantage in Talend Open Studio because it is really very… more»

What other advice do I have?

On a scale from one to ten where one is the worst and ten is the best, I would rate this solution as an eight out of ten. To give the product a higher score they would have to improve several things. This would start with improving technical support. As far as advice that I have for people considering this solution, I think that this is a very good product which will be able to resolve most… more»

What is most valuable?

Open Studio is very good if you are a smaller company and you can have the budget to pay for integration. It's a useful tool that's easy to use.

What needs improvement?

If I compare Open Studion to other solutions, their interface is robust but not so fancy looking. This is an area that could use improvement. I would like to see an updated interface. Open Studio doesn't have features that some of its… more»

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

Talend is free and you can download it.

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

I worked previously with Gentran Integration Suite, about five years ago. I switched to Open Studio because I switched firms.

What other advice do I have?

It's great software for someone who is starting in this area. It covers all the basics. You can work and you can learn from scratch. It's pretty easy to start and to create. It's pretty easy to start and to create an integration. I would… more»

What is most valuable?

The Talend Studio connected to the Talend MDM (Master Data Management) is the most valuable feature. Talend Studio is used to create a job stream that connects to multiple… more»

How has it helped my organization?

By being able to cross-match records across multiple data sources and create a logical dataflow with options to place rejected records in a separate table, we are able to… more»

What needs improvement?

It needs better installation configuration for other databases. Although the installation allows you to select another database, this doesn't mean that all connection… more»

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

Pricing and licensing are fairly straightforward. It is reasonably priced and managed. It's a good solution overall.

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

Initially we used Pentaho, however, it was determined that this was not as feature rich as Talend.

What other advice do I have?

Make sure you have someone with technical skills and patience to install in a distributed deployment. Learn the product well and build in your own log shipping with either… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Pentaho, and prior to that SAS MDM which was similar but it was harder to create models. We also ran a PoC for IBM Infosphere MDM, but the cost was considered… more»

What needs improvement?

The profiling perspective needs improvement. Instead of using it in the studio, we are using a different tool which is also provided by Talend. It's redundant. They should remove that from studio to make it more lightweight or improve upon… more»

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

There are costs above the standard licensing fee, for example, if you need storage space.

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

We previously used to use a wide variety of solutions, including Informatica.

What other advice do I have?

We are using the AWS public cloud deployment model. I would recommend the product. As long as you follow the best practices you will get what you want out of it. I would rate the solution eight out of ten.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated other options, such as Azure Data Factory.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the variety of connectors that are available for integration with different databases. The drag-and-drop feature in the interface is very good. The open-source community for this solution has a lot of users, so… more»

How has it helped my organization?

This is not my core tool, but when we have customers who are going to be working with open-source tools then we propose this for ETL use cases.

What needs improvement?

Having additional training materials, such as a video tutorial, would be an improvement. I used the online guide, which is very good but it is quite long. If there were a video and a training syllabus then it would be good.

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

This is an open-source solution.

What other advice do I have?

This is a good solution but I would prefer it if it were easier to find information on how to use it, such as training videos. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

What is most valuable?

Talend as an ETL tool is very powerful. It allows for a lot of connections to any database source. The connectivity was one of the main reasons we started working with Talend. It's easy and user-friendly. It has most of what I want as a technical or nontechnical. Anything I need, I can find it in… more»

What needs improvement?

There used to be many Youtube channels that offered Talend training, but now there don't seem to be any. The solution should offer more online training resources.

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

The pricing is okay. They could improve their pricing model, however.

What other advice do I have?

We use the on-premises deployment model. I would rate the solution nine out of ten.

What do you think of Talend Open Studio?

What is our primary use case?

I'm a board member of our company and we are a customer of Talend. Our primary use case at the moment is working on data migration projects, migrating data from different databases and consolidating them. 

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is being able to create custom ETL jobs. We're sold on the customization part of it.

What needs improvement?

There is room for improvement in the performance - it gets the job done but it can be a bit slow, but then it is a free product. For now, it does the job that we need and we're quite happy with it.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using the solution for over a year. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

In terms of stability, I find that from time to…
