Talend Joins the Salesforce Analytics Cloud Ecosystem
<p">Talend, a provider of big data integration software, has joined the Salesforce Analytics Cloud Partner Ecosystem, allowing companies to cleanse, transform, and move big data to unlock its value and gain new customer insights with the Salesforce Analytics Cloud.
Analytics Cloud, powered by the Wave Platform, was created to let business users unearth new insights, drill deeper into data, and take action anywhere, anytime, from any device.
Talend's recently released Integration Cloud offers 800 connectors and components that let companies feed data into the Wave Platform from virtually any cloud or on-premises source, including big data platforms such as Hadoop, NoSQL, Teradata, and Amazon's Redshift.
"Companies realize that data can be one of their most important business assets, but are unsure how to optimize the data value chain or handle the volume, variety, and velocity of big data," said Ashley Stirrup, chief marketing officer at Talend, in a statement. “In the same way Talend has simplified integration, Salesforce has reimagined analytics and made it far more approachable. For companies, the combination of Talend and Salesforce Analytics Cloud offers a very compelling way to rapidly and cost-effectively turn raw data into meaningful business insight."
"As a member of the Analytics Cloud partner ecosystem, Talend will enable companies to extend the scope of analytics that business users are able to perform by integrating big data of all shapes and sizes and combining it with the rich, customer-centric data in the Analytics Cloud," said Stephanie Buscemi, senior vice president and chief operating officer of Salesforce's Analytics Cloud, in a statement. "Now every company can extend any data source to business users to transform every customer relationship."
