"When you need to beam your data from one database or format to any other format or database"

Comments: Talend Data Integration is an open source application, available in free and paid premium versions, which saves an enormous amount of time and provides you with the ability to setup and automate most of the work needed to sync data from one application or database to another application or database. It's easy to drag an drop lines between pre built components for almost every data base or format or data source known to mankind, click automap to map the corresponding fields. The paid version is great because of the level of support provided by the company, plus they also offer hosting and team collaboration features to let a group of people share with their fellow team members any recipes for extracting and loading data.

Pros: Talend Data Integration has a great set of features. Plus, the company behind the software has earned one of the best reputations and most respect in the realm of data integration and big data. The software user interface is very good to great and takes a short time to explore and get used to it. There is an online community for discussing with other users, or plenty of consultants and developers available if you want to outsource that work. Based on java, it's industrial strength and and army of java pros is available if and when you want.

Cons: Talend is a Windows desktop app running on top of the Eclipse development environment, so you need a several hundred MB of ram and disk space to run the application comfortably.

"Talend Open Studio DI"

Comments: I've been working with Talend Open Studio Data Integration for more than 5 years, in easy and complex projects that include data extractions, transformations, and load.

Pros: You can download a community version and test it for as long as you want, then decide to switch to a paid enterprise version, or keep using the community without cost.
There is an respectable list of components available, also an additional list of components provided by users and developers called "Talend Exchange" can be added to your projects.
Easy to learn, there are videos, manuals, and forum.
Very responsive user community.

Cons: Need more marketing as a company.

"Data integration software with a lot more feature"

Comments: At the end of the day successfully migrate data in from one database to another which is hosted on server. Linking of relational tables are easy than expected.

Pros: This software provide you ease of access for usage. Here you can easily communicate with 2 database with weather it is on local or server. You can communicate both with different features as well. Apart from that you can also easily transfer with just UI.

Cons: One of the main issue is if you have security key rather than password than there is a lot more external process needed to connect. Also you can only connect 2 database at a time for data transfer.

"I'm using Talend Open Studio from 2 years now and its perfect to integrate files with your BDD."

Comments: I've done many applications with this ETL in order to read from a file and write the data in a BDD (one or many BDD to write in the same job).
Very good software

Pros: Easy to use
No need to "hard" code in order to have your job done
Easy to integrate with many technologies of BDD (MySQL, noSql and many more)
Easy to integrate with many kind of files (csv, xls, xlsx)
There's a lot of forum with people that's willing to help if you know how to ask

Cons: There's a lot of components, in order to manage everything in this software you will have to do to many formations.

"Enterprise Level Data Integration Software"

Comments: Our big data projects are based on Talend platform for our pipeline processing. To handle the exception properly, we designed a complex multi-master handling process to make sure the runtime exception can be resumed automatically. Other than that, Talend fulfilled our needs properly and their support were cooperative and working hard.

Pros: 1. Open source;
2. Full of transformations to support different scenarios;
3. Convenient designer/java code switching capability for troubleshooting;
4. Integrated with java, maven, nexus;
5. Integration support with Big Data and MDM.

Cons: 1. When project is big, the designer is becoming slower and slower;
2. The exception handling not convenient. You can either let go the exception or stop the process, or using external controller to resume the applications. But you cannot customize the try catch block of the exception itself;
3. Nexus integration is buggy on talend 7.

"Use talend in the company to implement integrations between systems.Using both Web services and file"

Pros: Ease of learning. Development can be done by writing a few lines of code or in any case with very basic java knowledge.
Graphically it is possible to write writes or readings in the database, writings or readings on file.
Talend already provides default connectors with other systems. Such as Google Cloud, Excel, MySql, Oracle and many others.

Cons: The version for mac is horrible. Sometimes you have to use "Ctrl" sometimes "Cmd" is really badly done.
In my experiences the speed of learning clashes with the consumption of resources and the slowness of the interfaces.
An interface made in pure Java requires more time to implement but is definitely more performing.

"Useful, fast and vary, that's what you need!"

Pros: We integrated it with Salesforce and many other services through its connectors. It's very fast and easy to use even if you have to get used to it, and it might not be easy at first.

Cons: It can become incredibly complicated to handle complex fluxes, and if you are facing issue or getting unexpected results it can be quite hard to debug and find the problem.

"Talend is flexible and can do many task for Data Engineers"

Comments: Talend was the go to for our team since it allowed easy access to other Data Bases systems as Oracle and no-sql db's as well.

Pros: I like that it is based on open source technology. The Integrated development environment (IDE) is Eclipse based so if you are familiar with Java IDE you will feel right at home.

Cons: If you are primarily a Windows workshop there will be a learning curve to moving around Talend's IDE. Some task might not be as intuitive if you are only familiar with MSSQL based products.

"Talend - Far above its Peers"

Comments: Talend is phenomenal at bridging the data gap between two disparate (or like) data sources. One way we've used Talend in the past was to bring data from Marketo into NetSuite, and one way we're using it now is to bring data from SFDC, Netsuite (for Finance) and Marketo into Tableau for optimized reporting. Within Marketo, I've personally used Talend to update campaign flow steps in bulk, that otherwise would have been manual. Huge time saver.

Pros: unified platform, predictable pricing, and plethora of connectors

Cons: That I didn't think of the idea.
