Talend 5.6 Advances the Data-Driven Enterprise

Talend, the global big data integration software leader, today announced Talend 5.6, the latest release of its acclaimed Integration Platform. Reinforcing its commitment to connecting and advancing the data-driven enterprise, Talend 5.6 sets new benchmarks for big data productivity and profiling, drives Master Data Management (MDM) innovation with cutting-edge efficiency controls and broadens Internet of Things (IoT) device connectivity. In addition, Talend 5.6 initiates support for the latest Hadoop extensions, Apache Spark and Apache Storm, offering significant performance advantages and enabling real-time and operational data projects.

“Talend 5.6 reinforces our commitment to accelerating the adoption of Hadoop and being at the forefront of innovations that enable our customers to immediately recognize the benefits of new framework advancements,” said Laurent Bride, CTO, Talend. “From enabling new use cases to boosting performance and productivity across-the-board, Talend 5.6 is packed with the capabilities that enterprises need to make today’s data projects even faster and easier, as well as support the increasingly complex big data requirements directly ahead.”

In Talend 5.6, the company is introducing cutting-edge previews of features for leveraging Apache Spark and Apache Storm. The latest support allows companies to experience how Talend enhances and streamlines new big data use cases including using Spark to speed massive batch analysis jobs, interactive queries and graph processing by as much as 100 times or employing Storm for the high-performance analysis of ‘data in motion’ or streaming information.

The Otto Group is the world’s second-largest online retailer in the end-consumer (B2C) business and Europe’s largest online retailer in the end-consumer B2C fashion and lifestyle business, with over 54,000 employees, operations spanning 123 major companies in more than 20 countries and sales of 12 billion euros. Otto is using the Talend Platform to enable uniformed access to numerous internal and external data sources from a centralized location.

“Using Talend, the Otto Group has been able to make quicker and smarter decisions around product lines, improve forecasts, reduce leftover merchandise and importantly, improve our customers’ experience,” said Rupert Steffner, Chief BI Platform Architect, Otto Group IT. “With 5.6, Talend is keeping pace with our desire to continually improve and remain ahead of the competition by efficiently analyzing more high quality data that can be immediately acted upon to further advance operations and customer service.”

In addition to ingesting real-time and operational big data to allow for instant decisioning scenarios such as dynamic pricing, cart-abandonment defense or fraud prevention, Talend 5.6 also improves the performance of MapReduce big data processing projects. Further realizing the benefits of its unique native Hadoop support, performance on the TPC-H benchmark has improved 24 percent over the previous release in May 2014 and by more than 50 percent over the course of the past 12 months. In fact, with some use cases, Talend 5.6 users will see almost 60 percent gains, and additionally, enjoy 20 times better profiling performance.

Supporting machine-generated content or IoT devices is another focus of Talend 5.6. With more devices becoming embedded with sensors and the ability to communicate, the IoT is providing businesses with new data points to help inform business decisions, optimize processes, and reduce costs and risk. Talend 5.6 introduces support for two related protocols (MQTT and AMQP) that will enable the sensor data to be directly ingested into companies’ real-time data integration workflows.

As the foundation for controlling data-driven processes, Talend 5.6 also adds some dynamic new functionality to MDM that helps streamline data model changes, lineage traceability and matching. As a result, Talend 5.6 can cut the time needed to update master data models in half and double the speed of data cleansing. Combined with the new MDM activity dashboards, Talend 5.6 provides data stewards with the visibility and control they need to complete projects on time and to the highest standard.

Talend 5.6 continues to add to its extensive list of over 800 application connectors and components with the introduction of support for Oracle GoldenGate CDC, Microsoft HDInsight and enhanced connectivity to SaaS solutions including Salesforce.com, Marketo and NetSuite.

Most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall. As with most new architectures, this dream takes a lot of work to become a reality. Even when you do get your application componentized enough and packaged properly, there are still challenges for DevOps teams to making the shift to continuous delivery and achieving that reduction in cost ...
Enterprise architects are increasingly adopting multi-cloud strategies as they seek to utilize existing data center assets, leverage the advantages of cloud computing and avoid cloud vendor lock-in. This requires a globally aware traffic management strategy that can monitor infrastructure health across data centers and end-user experience globally, while responding to control changes and system specification at the speed of today’s DevOps teams. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Gray, Chie...
"At the keynote this morning we spoke about the value proposition of Nutanix, of having a DevOps culture and a mindset, and the business outcomes of achieving agility and scale, which everybody here is trying to accomplish," noted Mark Lavi, DevOps Solution Architect at Nutanix, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
We have already established the importance of APIs in today’s digital world (read about it here). With APIs playing such an important role in keeping us connected, it’s necessary to maintain the API’s performance as well as availability. There are multiple aspects to consider when monitoring APIs, from integration to performance issues, therefore a general monitoring strategy that only accounts for up-time is not ideal.
Web services have taken the development world by storm, especially in recent years as they've become more and more widely adopted. There are naturally many reasons for this, but first, let's understand what exactly a web service is. The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) defines "web of services" as "message-based design frequently found on the Web and in enterprise software". Basically, a web service is a method of sending a message between two devices through a network. In practical terms, this ...

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...
As many know, the first generation of Cloud Management Platform (CMP) solutions were designed for managing virtual infrastructure (IaaS) and traditional applications. But that’s no longer enough to satisfy evolving and complex business requirements. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Scott Davis, Embotics CTO, will explore how next-generation CMPs ensure organizations can manage cloud-native and microservice-based application architectures, while also facilitating agile DevOps methodology. He wi...
We have Continuous Integration and we have Continuous Deployment, but what’s continuous across all of what we do is people. Even when tasks are automated, someone wrote the automation. So, Jayne Groll evangelizes about Continuous Everyone. Jayne is the CEO of the DevOps Institute and the author of Agile Service Management Guide. She talked about Continuous Everyone at the 2016 All Day DevOps conference. She describes it as "about people, culture, and collaboration mapped into your value streams....
These days, change is the only constant. In order to adapt and thrive in an ever-advancing and sometimes chaotic workforce, companies must leverage intelligent tools to streamline operations. While we're only at the dawn of machine intelligence, using a workflow manager will benefit your company in both the short and long term. Think: reduced errors, improved efficiency and more empowered employees-and that's just the start. Here are five other reasons workflow automation is leading a revolution...
Docker is sweeping across startups and enterprises alike, changing the way we build and ship applications. It's the most prominent and widely known software container platform, and it's particularly useful for eliminating common challenges when collaborating on code (like the "it works on my machine" phenomenon that most devs know all too well). With Docker, you can run and manage apps side-by-side - in isolated containers - resulting in better compute density. It's something that many developer...
While some vendors scramble to create and sell you a fancy solution for monitoring your spanking new Amazon Lambdas, hear how you can do it on the cheap using just built-in Java APIs yourself. By exploiting a little-known fact that Lambdas aren’t exactly single-threaded, you can effectively identify hot spots in your serverless code. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Dave Martin, Product owner at CA Technologies, will give a live demonstration and code walkthrough, showing how ...

He will demonstrate a cloud-native Spring Boot app running in Cloud Foundry and communicating with clients over websocket protocol that can be easily scaled horizontally and coordinate...
There are several reasons why businesses migrate their operations to the cloud. Scalability and price are among the most important factors determining this transition. Unlike legacy systems, cloud based businesses can scale on demand. The database and applications in the cloud are not rendered simply from one server located in your headquarters, but is instead distributed across several servers across the world. Such CDNs also bring about greater control in times of uncertainty. A database hack ...
