It has been revealed that Talend, one of the world’s leaders in providing big data integration tools, has been awarded certified integration from SAP. Talend Platform 5.6 can now be fully integrated with SAP’s enterprise resource planning (ERP) offerings, meaning that clients will have even more confidence that Talend integration projects will offer high quality, resilience and optimised performance.
Talend has become one of the most well-known companies for offering solutions to deal with big data. Its tools provide data-driven companies with a way to instantly analyse and gain value from the vast information they have. Talend is able to remove integration complexities, whilst also equipping a firm’s IT division with ways to become more responsive to the ever-evolving business world.
By receiving verification from the SAP Integration and Certification Centre, Talend is able to prove that the Talend Platform 5.6 operates to the highest level of efficiency. The tool, which offers support for data integration, big data, application integration, master data management (MDM) and cloud integration, will combine with SAP ERP to provide seamless technical alignment; as a result, companies will be able to gain better efficiency and performance than ever before.
Lauren Bride, Talend’s chief technical officer, revealed: “Given the pervasiveness of SAP applications in the modern enterprise, this was an important milestone to achieve with Talend Platform 5.6, and adds strength to a solution already proven to increase productivity and deliver projects faster.” She added: “SAP certification will provide an extra level of confidence for new and existing customers when managing batch data migration from legacy systems to SAP applications or synchronizing data in real time between SAP and other applications.”
Certification from a globally-recognised and respected company such as SAP can be extremely important for firms. Applications developed by various companies do not always suit each other very well, which can lead to major complications when it comes to integrating and enabling the flow of information back and forth. Time-consuming troubleshooting is often required to solve unforeseen problems, and both budgets and schedules can quickly spiral out of control.
For Talend, gaining SAP certification and the respect and recognition that comes with this is an important step forwards; meanwhile, for its customers, this means that any SAP integration will provide a seamless way to deal with and analyse more data in a better way than ever before.
