HUD's CIO Understands Importance of Data

Loraine Lawson

Here's an interesting development: Big-boy data integration players Informatica and IBM have new competition from the open source community.


Today, Talend ships Open Studio v2.0, an updated, more robust version of its open-source data integration software. Unlike traditional data integration tools, which tend to rely on ETL to move data from store to store, Open Studio uses Java for real-time integration.


According to a Forrester Research analyst interviewed for this story, Open Studio v2.0 will appeal to solution providers, because it's low-cost and open source. Talend is licensing Open Studio v2.0 under the GPL v.2 license and plans to make money by consulting, training and technical support for the product.


The solution includes more than 100 connectors for enterprise apps.


Data integration is in demand right now, pushed in part by corporate merges and acquisitions and the flood of data organizations are creating -- much of which ties back to Sarbanes-Oxley. Of course, Talend isn't the only open-source integration offering. In fact, SnapLogic recently made headlines for an Internet-scale data integration solution.


Open source seems like a smart solution, especially when you're trying to mesh together data from so many different systems and applications.
