Creates a job stream that connects to multiple data sources, but needs better installation configuration for other databases

Pros and Cons

  • "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 data sources, matches, compares or creates a golden record for overall identification. It also has a good catalogue of objects that can be dragged and dropped for building models."
  • "It needs better installation configuration for other databases. Although the installation allows you to select another database, this doesn't mean that all connection points in the application point to the database selected. You actually need to do a search through the entire install to locate the configuration settings and change them."
  • "In version 6.2 we did encounter issues with the job servers and specifically with ESB. Version 6.3 is better but large jobs can cause the MDM server to fall over, requiring a reboot."

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 Splunk or Elastic or Telegraf to ease your diagnostic pains.

Open Studio for small companies works well but for larger ones, in-depth analysis of the costs & effort is needed

What other advice do I have?

Don’t precipitate the acquisition of the Enterprise version. Using Talend Open Studio for small companies is enough, but for big companies analyze first very carefully the cost and effort to switch to Enterprise version.
