Cloud data preparation solution has been released to help enterprises integrate their data into the cloud.

Talend has unveiled a new version of Talend Integration Cloud (TIC), the company’s scalable and secure integration platform-as-a-service (iPaaS) solution, which leverages the power of the cloud to enable widespread use of data for decision making. The new release includes a cloud-based version of Talend Data Preparation, which delivers data-as-a-service, 24x7, to a variety of business roles, while allowing IT to maintain control and governance over enterprise information. Available immediately for trial, Talend Data Preparation Cloud accelerates time-to-insight by 3x so companies can more efficiently utilize data as a strategic asset to improve business performance and competitiveness.

“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.

Talend Integration Cloud Key features:

  • Access sanctioned data coming from SaaS apps, cloud databases, or on-premises sources
  • Share their data preparations with IT so they can be operationalized across the enterprise.
  • A web-based tool that enables business users to access, cleanse, analyze and utilize enterprise data
  • Empower their line-of-business counterparts with greater insight so they can do their jobs better
  • Manage role-based access to enterprise information
  • Oversee data quality and governance policies, so they can maintain the accuracy and security of enterprise information
  • Operationalize user preparations at enterprise scale

“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.”
