The pricing is a little higher than what I had expected, but it's comparable with I-PASS competitors. It's on the higher side because it's a developer-user licensed solution. It makes you look at the investment differently than an I-PASS that is offered by the number of integrations that you have to work on. You have to balance it out on one end. You have an I-PASS that tells you that you can have an unlimited amount of developers, but you can only develop a certain amount of integrations per yer. That's what you are paying for. With Talend, it's the opposite. You can have an unlimited amount of integrations but you only a license for two developers, for example.

License renewal is on a yearly basis.

Clients are looking for options. Before using Talend, when I was building Informatica and DataStage, they both were the "big bucks" kind of data integration and clients are desperate for deep-dive data warehousing because of the expense. But with Talend, it provides both a quick startup with their community and at the same time, it provides a different financial strategy with their subscription model. There are some clients who are actually financially stable enough and they're looking for a license model or a financial model like what Talend doesn't have. They like its features but it follows a subscription model. So it's even more on the client's business side wherein they want variety, but sometimes the variety is very much limited to the brand. Basically, like in our case, Informatica and Cappex only offer a staged data payment model. But Talend offers a monthly subscription kind of model, and there are some clients who like the features of Talend, but they are not keen on having an OPEX, an operational expense, kind of financial model.

For a production environment, plan to separate the Talend suite of systems onto their own servers for easier management with 'security updates' and secure each one for encryption of data across systems. Using the installer for a Production environment didn't work for what we needed.

Make sure you wait until the end of the quarter to get the best deal. Try to talk to multiple salespeople, and sometimes you can get multiple discounts. Let me know, and I can help.
