Talend Puts ETL Open Source Tool Online As Public Beta

Developer Community Can Now Access The ETL Tool For Free

Talend announced that the beta version of its ETL Open Source tool is now available for free download. Following the company’s founding just one year ago, and after three years of intense research and development, Talend has accomplished the first stage of its plan.

Numerous private testers from around the world put Talend’s first beta version ETL tool to the test for several months in live production environments. The results show that the tool offers remarkable stability, 99% of the anticipated functionality and surpasses other offerings available on the market today. Talend’s ETL tool is the first ever to be completed integrated with Eclipse RCP, which the traditional proprietary software companies only envision doing in the next 12 to 18 months.

This English-language beta version can now be downloaded for free under GPL 2 license on Talend’s website at www.talend.com. Users are invited to participate in its development by posting their comments and suggestions to the dedicated forum. Committed to its Open Source strategy, Talend will announce the availability of version 1 in the coming weeks for free download from the website.

“As of today, the ETL market is no longer the exclusive domain of a limited group of proprietary software vendors, taking advantage of their market position to maintain the high price of licenses for products with limited functionality,” said Fabrice Bonan, co-founder of Talend in charge of research and development. “Our ETL tool is more powerful and offers more functionality than proprietary tools, without placing any limitations on connectivity or scalability. And, there is a very short learning curve.”

“The Open Source model can now be extended to all levels of a company’s IT system,” continued Bertrand Diard, co-founder and CEO of Talend. “ETL is an essential tool for companies to maintain their independence vis-à-vis vendors of proprietary solutions. It also guarantees consistent and fluid information in increasingly diverse IT systems. The availability of a high-level Open Source ETL tool is a new resource for CTOs faced with the uncertainty of change and of the intervention of proprietary software vendors. We are shaking up the establishment and ensuring that data integration tools are accessible to companies of all sizes.”

Talend’s US public beta ETL tool for Windows and Linux is now available for free download at http://www.talend.com/beta/download.
