Talend Open Studio Room for Improvement

Data Integration Specialist/CTO at Asset messages
What I really don't like is the TAC, which is the Talent Administration Console. It's currently slow, old technology. It's obsolete and ugly to use. The studio is great, whereas TAC is on the other side of the spectrum. Actually, in AWS, in many cases, we are ditching the TAC and we are using Amazon-provided services, like Lambda functions, to code the Talend files produced by Talend Studio. The server-side should be completely revamped. View full review »

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 good. However, while I am working I sometimes notice a bunch of very minor faults or omissions in the functionality. I see them while working and I don't keep a list so I can not go into many details. But there are a lot of very minor glitches and functional inconsistencies that do not affect the results very much, but if they can be fixed it will improve the system and utility. For example, if I make an FTP connection, I can not use a context variable to define parameters. This feature is just not available and it should be. If such minor gaps are fixed, it would be a much better product and quicker and easier to use. One other thing that can be improved is that it would be good to have more information on the internet for users to assist with problem-solving and use. I think that there is a lot of information out there but at the same time, it seems like a lot of the information is not the most relevant to what a user really needs. I would advise people coming to the product as new users to read the documentation thoroughly and as much as possible, but I would also hope that the standard and quality of that documentation will be improved by Talend.

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 competitors do like administrative tools. View full review »

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 its interface. The two things that Talend lacks is an MDM and the CDC. I know Talend has both of them, but both of them are not exactly usable in actual scenarios. I know that Talend has some integrations with other companies for MDM, but I'm not sure what they're doing for CDC. Maybe Talend can work something out regarding the CDC feature. I know the solution has its own CDC, but they're not focused on it as much as people would like them to be. I would like to know what their plans for it are or if they plan to partner with another organization to market it. View full review »

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. View full review »

The solution's data management platform needs improvement. I like the data catalog, however, sometimes it requires other components. The solution should offer better integration with other products. View full review »

The user interface could be made simpler. If I am comparing to MuleSoft, there are several things that are easier, such as the integration, as well as any connection to the database, or other data source. In the next release, I would like to see the same simplicity for many of the same functionalities. View full review »

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. View full review »

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. View full review »

We need to use a more complete solution that includes data governance, data quality, data lineage, data classification, and data security. At a minimum, they should include some data quality rules and functionality, and perhaps some login features. Technical support and customer service need to be improved. There is no log available.

We don't get continuous replication of the data. This is something that should be improved. Other competitors have it but for this solution continuous replication is lagging. View full review »

I haven't really had any issues with the solution although it would be helpful if it were a little more intuitive and that it would include a better setup in between versions. View full review »

Inter-version compatibility is a problem, and migration projects between versions are required. The migration between version 5 and 6 was particularly painful for us as numerous components we had used were "end of life" in 5 and not present in 6, because of Java version upgrade issues, I think. We had not re-generated the executable from previous upgrades, so had to put some code through what effectively was a two version upgrade, to ensure we cleared the Java version issue.
