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.

The nature of test environments is inherently temporary—you set up an environment, run through an automated test suite, and then tear down the environment. If you can reduce the cycle time for this process down to hours or minutes, then you may be able to cut your test environment budgets considerably. The impact of cloud adoption on test environments is a valuable advancement in both cost savings and agility. The on-demand model takes advantage of public cloud APIs requiring only payment for t...
"Codigm is based on the cloud and we are here to explore marketing opportunities in America. Our mission is to make an ecosystem of the SW environment that anyone can understand, learn, teach, and develop the SW on the cloud," explained Sung Tae Ryu, CEO of Codigm, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 21st Cloud Expo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
High-velocity engineering teams are applying not only continuous delivery processes, but also lessons in experimentation from established leaders like Amazon, Netflix, and Facebook. These companies have made experimentation a foundation for their release processes, allowing them to try out major feature releases and redesigns within smaller groups before making them broadly available. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Brian Lucas, Senior Staff Engineer at Optimizely, discussed how by using ne...
Many enterprise and government IT organizations are realizing the benefits of cloud computing by extending IT delivery and management processes across private and public cloud services. But they are often challenged with balancing the need for centralized cloud governance without stifling user-driven innovation. This strategy requires an approach that fundamentally reshapes how IT is delivered today, shifting the focus from infrastructure to services aggregation, and mixing and matching the bes...
"CA has been doing a lot of things in the area of DevOps. Now we have a complete set of tool sets in order to enable customers to go all the way from planning to development to testing down to release into the operations," explained Aruna Ravichandran, Vice President of Global Marketing and Strategy at CA Technologies, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at DevOps Summit at 21st Cloud Expo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
While we understand Agile as a means to accelerate innovation, manage uncertainty and cope with ambiguity, many are inclined to think that it conflicts with the objectives of traditional engineering projects, such as building a highway, skyscraper or power plant. These are plan-driven and predictive projects that seek to avoid any uncertainty. This type of thinking, however, is short-sighted. Agile approaches are valuable in controlling uncertainty because they constrain the complexity that ste...
Cavirin Systems has just announced C2, a SaaS offering designed to bring continuous security assessment and remediation to hybrid environments, containers, and data centers. Cavirin C2 is deployed within Amazon Web Services (AWS) and features a flexible licensing model for easy scalability and clear pay-as-you-go pricing.

"This all sounds great. But it's just not realistic." This is what a group of five senior IT executives told me during a workshop I held not long ago. We were working through an exercise on the organizational characteristics necessary to successfully execute a digital transformation, and the group was doing their ‘readout.' The executives loved everything we discussed and agreed that if such an environment existed, it would make transformation much easier. They just didn't believe it was reali...
It’s “time to move on from DevOps and continuous delivery.” This was the provocative title of a recent article in ZDNet, in which Kelsey Hightower, staff developer advocate at Google Cloud Platform, suggested that “software shops should have put these concepts into action years ago.” Reading articles like this or listening to talks at most DevOps conferences might make you think that we’re entering a post-DevOps world. But vast numbers of organizations still struggle to start and drive transfo...
Agile has finally jumped the technology shark, expanding outside the software world. Enterprises are now increasingly adopting Agile practices across their organizations in order to successfully navigate the disruptive waters that threaten to drown them. In our quest for establishing change as a core competency in our organizations, this business-centric notion of Agile is an essential component of Agile Digital Transformation. In the years since the publication of the Agile Manifesto, the conn...
"We're developing a software that is based on the cloud environment and we are providing those services to corporations and the general public," explained Seungmin Kim, CEO/CTO of SM Systems Inc., in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 21st Cloud Expo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
The cloud revolution in enterprises has very clearly crossed the phase of proof-of-concepts into a truly mainstream adoption. One of most popular enterprise-wide initiatives currently going on are “cloud migration” programs of some kind or another. Finding business value for these programs is not hard to fathom – they include hyperelasticity in infrastructure consumption, subscription based models, and agility derived from rapid speed of deployment of applications. These factors will continue to...
While some developers care passionately about how data centers and clouds are architected, for most, it is only the end result that matters. To the majority of companies, technology exists to solve a business problem, and only delivers value when it is solving that problem. 2017 brings the mainstream adoption of containers for production workloads. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben McCormack, VP of Operations at Evernote, discussed how data centers of the future will be managed, how the p...
Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
Let's do a visualization exercise. Imagine it's December 31, 2018, and you're ringing in the New Year with your friends and family. You think back on everything that you accomplished in the last year: your company's revenue is through the roof thanks to the success of your product, and you were promoted to Lead Developer. 2019 is poised to be an even bigger year for your company because you have the tools and insight to scale as quickly as demand requires. You're a happy human, and it's not just...
DevOps teams have more on their plate than ever. As infrastructure needs grow, so does the time required to ensure that everything's running smoothly. This makes automation crucial - especially in the server and network monitoring world. Server monitoring tools can save teams time by automating server management and providing real-time performance updates. As budgets reset for the New Year, there is no better time to implement a new server monitoring tool (or re-evaluate your current solution)....
We just came off of a review of a product that handles both containers and virtual machines in the same interface. Under the covers, implementation of containers defaults to LXC, though recently Docker support was added. When reading online, or searching for information, increasingly we see “Container Management” products listed as competitors to Docker, when in reality things like Rocket, LXC/LXD, and Virtualization are Dockers competitors. After doing some looking around, we have decided tha...
"Opsani helps the enterprise adopt containers, help them move their infrastructure into this modern world of DevOps, accelerate the delivery of new features into production, and really get them going on the container path," explained Ross Schibler, CEO of Opsani, and Peter Nickolov, CTO of Opsani, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at DevOps Summit at 21st Cloud Expo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
The benefits of automation are well documented; it increases productivity, cuts cost and minimizes errors. It eliminates repetitive manual tasks, freeing us up to be more innovative. By that logic, surely, we should automate everything possible, right? So, is attempting to automate everything a sensible - even feasible - goal? In a word: no. Consider this your short guide as to what to automate and what not to automate.
identify the sources of event storms and performance anomalies will require automated, real-time root-cause analysis. I think Enterprise Management Associates said it well: “The data and metrics collected at instrumentation points across the application ecosystem are essential to performance monitoring and root cause analysis. However, analytics capable of transforming data and metrics into an application-focused report or dashboards are what separates actual application monitoring from relat...
