Social Data

Get actionable intelligence from social data with innovative tools.

Social data can be a veritable gold mine of information for today's enterprises. Because social data directly represents the sentiments and perspectives of millions of people worldwide, savvy organizations can use it to find prospects, target customers, personalize communication, identify trends, track markets and monitor corporate reputation.

But while social data is everywhere and ripe for picking, getting actionable intelligence from it is no easy task. The sheer volume of information is more than many organizations can handle. Connecting to new and emerging data sources isn't something that legacy integration technology is equipped to do. Working with massive data sets requires skills in MapReduce programming and NoSQL databases that most developers don't have. And few organizations have the resources to address these issues with investments in new technology, infrastructure and talent.

Fortunately, Talend's big data software solutions provide easy-to-use tools that let organizations mine social data quickly and easily to produce the kind of social data analytics that can transform business processes and drive business performance.
