San Mateo, Calif. and Los Altos, Calif. – September 8, 2008 – Greenplum, a leading provider of database software for the next generation of data warehousing and analytics, and Talend, the first provider of open source data integration software, today announced a partnership for software integration, marketing and sales, bringing new high performance analytic capabilities to businesses of all sizes.
Customers are processing an ever-increasing volume of data from heterogeneous sources and need high-performance solutions to enable them to gain insight and competitive advantage from all of their data. The combination of Greenplum’s massively parallel architecture, that scales to support analytics processing from gigabytes to petabytes, and Talend’s high-performance data integration tools that extract and transform data from any source – database or packaged application – gives customers a complete, high-performance data management solution. With this partnership, the two companies are collaborating on close tools integration, including support by Talend of the ELT (Extract-Load-Transform) architecture on the Greenplum platform, guaranteeing the highest data transformation throughput provided by Greenplum's parallel architecture.
"Talend is committed to delivering high-performance solutions at the lowest cost to facilitate adoption of enterprise data integration by customers of all sizes," said Bertrand Diard, CEO and co-founder of Talend. "This partnership with Greenplum, a leader in the field of high-performance data warehousing and analytics, will allow us to provide our joint customers with the highest degree of integration between our platforms."
"Our customers are looking for complete solutions to support their data analytics requirements,” said Frank Bien, Vice President of Business Development at Greenplum. “Tools such as Talend Open Studio and Talend Integration Suite, combined with Greenplum Database, ensure that customers can get the most value from their data."
Talend is the first provider of open source data integration software. After three years of intense research and development and with solid financial backing from leading investment firms, Talend revolutionized the world of data integration when it released the first version of Talend Open Studio in 2006. Talend's solutions are used primarily for migration and integration between operational systems, as well as for ETL (Extract, Transform, Load) for Business Intelligence and Data Warehousing, and for data quality management. Unlike proprietary, closed solutions that only the largest organizations can afford, Talend makes enterprise-class data integration solutions affordable to organizations of all sizes.
