Big Data Analytics

Big Data Analytics: Start Sooner, Go Further with Talend

Big data analytics, until recently the exclusive domain of only the largest and best bankrolled organizations, has become more widely accessible with the advent of Hadoop, the open source implementation of the MapReduce massively parallel programming framework pioneered by Google and Yahoo. Cloud-based Hadoop offerings have extended the big data analytics opportunity further, to include organizations that don't want to build and maintain their own Hadoop cluster.

Still, Hadoop application technologies are complex and Hadoop programming expertise is still relatively rare. Talend, the open source integration company, removes this last barrier to big data analytics with two powerful and versatile big data solutions:

  • Talend Open Studio for Big Data, a free open source application that makes it fast and easy to leverage Hadoop technologies without having to do any Hadoop coding.
  • Talend Platform for Big Data, a subscription-based solution that provides comprehensive support for all facets of enterprise big data management.

Talend Open Studio for Big Data, free to download and use under an Apache License, provides all you need to easily design and implement big data transfer and big data analytics jobs using Hadoop technologies like HDFS, HBase, Hive, Pig, and Sqoop. The studio features an Eclipse graphical development environment complete with business modeler, meta-data repository, and a palette of configurable components that let you graphically create big data migration and transformation jobs without writing code. Behind the scenes, Talend Open Studio for Big Data generates the underlying code which can be deployed as a scheduled job, as a stand-alone executable, or as a service.

With this fully-functional, feature-rich open source solution, you can quickly get to work with big data and Hadoop.
