"Great all purpose tool for Data Integration and ESB"

What do you like best?

It has a clear and easy to understand interface to design jobs and services.

The same way you design data integration job can be used to design services.

It is easy to enhance by custom components and can adapt to all requirements.

It is Open Source.

It has a very huge list of connectors to all databases, SAP, cloud platforms and can work with nearly all formats like JSON, XML, Excel, CSV or what ever - also main frame formats are usable like EBCDIC.

What do you dislike?

The Git integration can be improved and is a bit slow.

In the previous versions we had a number of bugs - now mostly solved.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Start with a training and choose right at the beginning a consulting partner.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have created data integration jobs for very huge companies for data ware housing or simply data exchange between applications.

"Simplify and unify complex ETL processes"

What do you like best?

Talend Data Integration is one of many Talend products that helps us simplify ETL processes that were previously scattered among various shell scripts and stored procedures. Once the basics and components are understood, you can create almost any extract or load script imaginable by simply dragging components over from the tool palette and wiring them together. Processes can be run from within the GUI or compiled to shell scripts for hooking into other processes. The tool is widely used, so it's easy to find support online. This includes official support forums and a knowledge base hosted by Talend.

What do you dislike?

The interface can be deceiving on first glance. You really need to understand each of the components before you know its inputs and outputs fully. In fact, I occasionally had a problems with the interface not showing up completely. That was in an older version and may have been fixed now. It can be confusing understanding how data will be mapped between components. Our projects end up being a Java "black-box" requiring Talend to modify, even when compiled to run from the command line. That wouldn't be a problem if our entire process was contained within Talend, and online unofficial and official support channels were helpful in overcoming such issues.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

ETL from multiple sources into a data warehouse

"Greate and easy tool for data integration (ETL)"

What do you like best?

Easy to user interface, good documentation and community

What do you dislike?

I would like to see an easier tool for deployment and management of ETL jobs on a small scale in SMB environments. Maybe an out-of-the-box integration with a ping tool like pushmon or similar would come in handy.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely give it a try if you are looking for an ETL solution. If you are fond of Java, even better.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Synchronization (Extract Transform Load) of data between different data sources, from flat files to databases and WebAPIs.

"Great product which can make short work of various data integration tasks"

What do you like best?

The drag and drop interface

Treating files and databases as simple input and output

Can produce executable jars even in the free version

Because it is java you can use any libraries you need to

What do you dislike?

Things can get complicated and it is difficult to manage the complexity.

Larger jobs get slow

The Java code generation can get out of sync with the custom work that you do

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a great product. We did not try the other expensive alternatives and felt Talend did all we needed.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Any data integration tasks with moving data from one place to another. Some of the data integration tasks involve pulling data from the internet via web services and inserting into legacy databases. Other is simply de-normalization.

"Daily usage"

What do you like best?

I think the best feature of Talend is the free version. This version can meet 80% of data integration activities in most companies, and some companies may be sufficient. There are many great features for free. The interface is simple and easy to understand and work.

What do you dislike?

The main deficiency in my opinion is that there is still a need for coding in Java for some more specific work, which restricts a little the public who can make the best use of the tool.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is im my opinion the first tool that anyone should look when searching for options.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Desde atividades simples de importação e exportação diários a projetos de integração de grande volume de dados.

"the interface is intuitive enough to jump in"

What do you like best?

The community is very active, and by this point most problems that you could run into, others have and already solved.

What do you dislike?

After building your solution, the implantation part (taking it from workspace to production) is not as clear as all other parts. And took me several times doing it before I felt even the remotely comfortable.

Recommendations to others considering the product

follow the tutorials!

the interface is intuitive enough to jump in, but if you want to be effective, do the tutorials.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

ETL solution, from multiple data sources. We had CSV,XML,Json, Sqlite3, PostgreSQL, MongoDB, CouchDB, and combining all of them into a single format, for analsys was actually quite easy using this tool.
