After three years of intense research and development investment, and with solid financial backing from leading investment firms, Talend revolutionized the world of data integration when it released the first version of Talend Open Studio in the second half of 2006. Talend Open Studio is primarily used for integration between operational systems, as well as for ETL (Extract, Transform, Load) for Business Intelligence and Data Warehousing, and for migration. Talend offers a completely new vision, reflected in the way it utilizes technology, as well as in its business model. The company shatters the traditional proprietary model by supplying open, innovative and powerful software solutions with the flexibility to meet the data integration needs of all types of organizations. Talend makes data integration solutions available to organizations of all sizes.
Talend is the first provider of open source data integration software. Market analysts agree that data integration tools represent a $13 billion market (with the ETL sub-segment valued at $2 billion and operational integration at $11 billion) – and that the market is growing at double-digit rates, year after year. Since the emergence of data integration tools in the 1990s, the market has been dominated by a small – and quickly consolidating – number of traditional vendors offering proprietary, closed solutions, which only the largest and wealthiest organizations can afford. Recent studies show that only 75,000 companies in the world use commercial data integration software to meet their data integration needs. Indeed, these solutions not only demand a steep initial investment (starting at $150,000 or well above that figure), but they also often require significant resources to manage implementation and on-going operation. Furthermore, companies are faced with exponential growth in the volume and heterogeneity of the data they need to manage and control. A key challenge that IT departments face today is ensuring the quality of their data by using modeling tools, workflow management and storage, the foundations of data governance in any company today. This challenge is actually faced by organizations of all sizes – not only the largest corporations.
