Talend releases self-service data preparation tool
|Christian Hargrave in Cloud Services Thursday, October 19, 2017|
Cloud data preparation solution has been released to help enterprises integrate their data into the cloud.
“Data is the new ‘oil’ that fuels businesses today. To effectively advance business objectives and become truly data-driven, companies must empower all members of the organization to access, qualify, analyze and apply information to their daily job functions,” said Ashley Stirrup, CMO for Talend. “The Fall ‘17 release of Talend Integration Cloud makes it easier to scale self-service access to enterprise data so employees can make more informed decisions, faster.”
According to Gartner, “analytics users spend the majority of their time either preparing data for analysis or waiting for data to be prepared for them [by IT]. Self-service data preparation is an iterative agile process for exploring, combining, cleaning and transforming raw data into curated datasets for data science, data discovery, and BI and analytics.” Additionally, Gartner forecasts by 2019, data and analytics organizations that provide agile, curated internal and external datasets for a range of content authors will realize twice the business benefits of those that do not.
Across all industries, intensely data-driven companies are changing the rules of competition. A recent survey showed that an actively engaged workforce drives 15 percent more profitability, is 30 percent more productive, and has 12 percent higher customer engagement. Talend Data Preparation Cloud makes it easier for companies to engage their entire workforce with self-service access to reliable, accurate information, so employees can shape relationships with customers, partners and stakeholders to advance the business.

“Most companies know, at least anecdotally, that poor quality data wastes time, increases costs, weakens decision making, angers customers, and makes it more difficult to execute any sort of data strategy,” said Stewart Bond, research director for IDC’s Data Integration Software service. “To improve data quality, engage line-of-business workers in the data stewardship process, providing tools that can surface quality issues through to resolution. Integrated, accessible, trustworthy and protected data is helping companies find new routes to market, remain competitive and drive growth.”
Are you paying more taxes than you have to as a developer or freelancer? The IRS is certainly not going to tell you about a deduction you failed to take, and your accountant is not likely to take the time to ask you about every deduction you’re entitled to. As former IRS Commissioner Mark Everson admitted, “If you don’t claim it, you don’t get it.
