Talend, the global big data integration software leader, today announced it has been recognised as a Strong Performer in "The Forrester Wave™: Hybrid² Integration, Q1 2014” report (*), released by independent research firm Forrester Research, Inc. on February 14, 2014. Talend is listed among vendors that offer “clearly strong solutions for a variety of future mixed application landscapes both on-premises and in the cloud “.
Talend was one of 14 vendors to pass the report’s criteria for assessment. In the report, Forrester wrote: “Many larger enterprises have a variety of different integration technologies based on deep integration requirements or simply because the consolidation failed in past. Hybrid² integration capabilities improve the interoperability and coexistence of multiple integration tools in merged scenarios.”
The pioneer in holistic integration through a truly unified platform addressing all integration needs, Talend provides flexible and secure integration of on-premises systems, cloud-based systems and SaaS applications. It also provides a common environment for users to manage the entire lifecycle of integration processes including a graphical development environment, a deployment mechanism and runtime environment for operations and a monitoring console for management – all built on top of a shared metadata repository.
“For organisations with hybrid IT environments – that combine on-premises, private cloud, public cloud and SaaS – properly managing application and data integration is extremely critical, yet entails more complexity than for traditional on-premises systems,” said Fabrice Bonan, co-founder and chief products officer, Talend. “Talend delivers a comprehensive, unified platform that simplifies integration of these cloud-based and on-premises systems, allowing organisations to achieve instant value from all their data assets.”
* Introduced by Forrester, the term “hybrid² integration” refers to federated on-premises and cloud-based integration combined with the improved interoperability of existing and new middleware silos of application, B2B, BPM, business events, business rules, and data integration.
