I would advise potential customers to try Talend's community edition. It would be a good strategy for them to get their hands and feet wet using the community so they'll understand the ins and outs of those sites. It works well for the product because you get traction in terms of adoption and community. The community is rich enough for people to build actual production solutions, and it's open to expansion in an enterprise community. So that would be a good strategy, especially if a company is still exploring tools. It's a low-cost approach to get started. On a scale of one to ten, I would rate Talend Data Management Platform a nine. What would make it a ten, at least in my region, is the support. In the Philippines, there's only a handful of Talend support. The support is very helpful, but it's very limited. They usually refer you to the community or to their reseller partners, but for direct engineering inquiries, they would have to refer you to their head office. So for a very popular product, their footprint here in the Philippines is still on the development side or ramp-up side. Support could improve. I'm leveraging it on personal references because I know the people running the show here in the Philippines. But for some of the clients, they would find it difficult to find global support for Talend here in the Philippines.

I'm a user and a client. I'm a Data Integration Tech. I'd rate the solution six out of ten. It's my understanding that the solution is lining up a lot of new features to add and deploy in the near future. That will be great. I hope they continue to focus on new releases. There are only a few things that are straightforward, however. Many things take a lot of time to understand and get used to. If they can improve the basic stuff, I think it would be much less complicated overall. There are also more connectors that could be added as a feature. Other than that, it's a good product.

Having developers that are familiar with Java and Tomcat will be very helpful but not required when using Talend.

I think Talend is one of the easiest tools for faster implementation compared to other tools. For example, if we're implementing the data integration solution with some other tool, it will take 10 days. But with Talend, it will take less than 50% of the time. So the tool is very easy, the interface is user-friendly for the developer and suitable for the development of the solution. That is one of the key benefits of Talend. I recommended Talend for two of my four customers during the last four years. I replaced the Oracle Data Integrator and IBM with Talend. My rating for this solution is eight out of ten.

Just be careful to think through everything that you want to do. There are reusable parts to Talend. Use the variables properly. This is advice for any ETL solution.
