Test Center review: Open source data aces

Jitterbit 2.0 impresses with easy GUI for mastering migration projects, while Talend Open Studio 3.0 scales gracefully to meet enterprise integration demands

Support is always a key concern for open source. Although Talend is still a young company, its worldwide presence enables it to deliver service, support, and training 24/7. Support is included in its team-oriented Integration Suite, along with added provisions for distributed monitoring and load balancing down to the CPU core. Talend even offers a free SaaS edition, Talend on Demand, with subscription-based support.

Clearly Talend has much to offer. Before you break the bank for a six-figure proprietary alternative or ponder the ongoing maintenance nightmare of a hand-coded solution, you’d be foolish not to explore Talend for your next data integration project.
