I don't see any additional need for improvement, at least not in the use cases that I've encountered so far. I'm not sure if they have it, but including either XML or JSON in the next release would definitely be a good transformation. I'm not sure if Talend has that feature, but it's one of those requirements that we are working around and have to do some parsing of XML so this could make it easier.

Some components of the solution are not easy to exploit. The solution takes quite a long time to master, even with a visual interface. They should work to make it more user-friendly and easier to learn. Once you get past the basic tools, it gets pretty complicated.

The documentation from version to version could be more accurate. I have found information that is inaccurate or doesn't apply to the version I am trying to install or work in. Documentation could also be more user-friendly as it seems cumbersome with too much information, which probably is why I have found inaccurate information. The application installation process needs improvement. They have an easy "non-secure" installation for trying out the subscription version. I would like to see installation instructions for a Production environment with system and server layout using SSL Security. It would go a long way to understand what Talend envisions as a best practice for a production environment.

An area that needs improvement is the administration of data and granting permission for the different developers working on the product at the same time. Talend is a great development tool but the administration, access rights, synchronization and phoning can be better. New features I would like to see is changing the data capture and different connection abilities to the Oracle database because some connections are suitable for one customer and not for the other, as it is based on the environment architects or on the customer.

There are no natural connections for some of the applications that I use more regularly. I think that if Talend wants to disrupt the market a bit, they could create built-in calls to Oracle Hyperion applications. As far as the next release, I would like to see connections to SAP work a bit better. They have a little lag, but this is just me reaching for something because they asked.
