Data Cleaning

Powerful Data Cleaning Made Easy with Talend Enterprise Data Quality

With corporate data exploding in volume and variety, data cleaning – the process of identifying and repairing data that is incomplete, inaccurate, redundant, or non-conforming – has grown difficult to the point that some organizations put the task off, despite the known business value of high quality data. Building in-house tools for data cleaning is highly labor-intensive, and may create maintenance problems down the road. Alternatively, purchasing expensive proprietary data cleaning solutions from one of the big vendors may entail prolonged business case-making and budget battles, as well as steep investments in training if a purchase is ultimately made.

Talend resolves this dilemma with an open source data quality management solution that's powerful, reliable, and easy to use.

The Open Source Data Cleaning Solution

Talend is the leading provider of open source integration software. Talend's open source solutions are mature, proven products with hundreds of thousands of users, from small start-ups to some of the largest corporations in the world. Named as "visionary" in the Gartner magic quadrant analysis of the data integration market, Talend offers two open source software packages for organizations seeking to improve the quality of their data:

  • Talend Open Studio for Data Quality is a versatile data profiler that helps you quickly gauge the scope and condition of your current data, across a wide variety of databases, file formats, and application types. Talend Open Studio for Data Quality is free to download and to use for as long as you want.
  • Talend Enterprise Data Quality is a comprehensive enterprise data quality management solution that delivers not only data profiling and discovery, but also data cleaning, data enrichment, data migration, and data synchronization functionality, all through the same unified console. Talend Enterprise Data Quality, which includes professional technical support from Talend, is priced on a subscription rate that's only a fraction of the cost of proprietary data cleaning software.

Integration and Ease of Use

Talend products have a familiar Eclipse-based development environment that's packed with easy-to-use components and automations. For example, both Talend Open Studio for Data Quality and Talend Enterprise Data Quality have more than 400 built-in data connectors, drag-and-drop job build functionality, and a unified repository for reusing metadata across projects. Talend Enterprise Data Quality features pre-built components that simplify all facets of data cleaning, including data matching and de-duplication, survivorship implementation, and normalization against company or external reference standards.

Resources and Community

Talend backs its data cleaning products with professional quality user documentation and a wealth of on-demand learning resources such as tutorials and webinars. As a popular open source technology, Talend solutions are also surrounded by a large and active user community that shares experiences, insights, and application extensions through platforms such as the Talend Forum and the Talend Exchange.
