Talend takes swipe at data-integration duo

Open-source comes to MDM

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Data integration specialist Talend hopes to undercut closed-source vendors on Master Data Management with its planned delivery today of technology acquired from Amalto.

Talend is expected to release its Enterprise Edition featuring open-source MDM under a subscription license of between $50,000 and $100,000 depending on users and usage.

MDM will also be available for free in a community edition of Talend.

Closed-source MDM from vendors such as IBM and Informatica is typically priced north of $600,000 per license.

Talend claimed its MDM is cheaper and less complicated to install from traditional vendors and would deliver a return on investment in less than the typical two years.

Talend's MDM will also mean its own customers no longer need to build their own, in-house MDM software using Talend's existing products - as has happened

Talend's vice president of marketing Yves de Montcheuil told The Reg that Talend now has more than 1,000 paying customers - always tricky for an open-source company charging subscriptions - compared to 400 at the start of 2009. Those customers include Bank of America, eBay, and Verizon.

"We are seeing more traction and getting into accounts," Montcheuil said. "We've taken business from Informatica and IBM."

Talend's MDM is the latest swipe at the pair in data integration. Based on technology it acquired from Amalto in September 2009, Talend has been releasing the Amalto code to open source under the GPL.

Features in Talend's MDM include an active data model for modeling and mastering data domains; integration between domains using more than 400 components and connectors; tools to cleanse and organize master data; and tools for collaboration based on users' roles and access rights. ®
