Talend Blog - Tue, 04/02/2019 - 22:55
Let me start by thanking all those who read the first part of our blog series on converting legacy ETL to modern ETL! Before I begin the second part of this three-blog series, let’s recap the three key aspects under consideration for converting from legacy ETL to modern ETL. Will the source and/or target systems change? Is this just an ETL conversion from their legacy system to modern ETL like Talend? Is the goal to re-platform as well? Will the target system change?

The Human MDM

Informatica Blog - Tue, 04/02/2019 - 16:15
I experience Deja-Vu every single time I visit a CIO, VP IT or Analytics at a manufacturing organization. Then again, it does not really matter what industry the client operates in. The Deja-Vu has to do with the appearance of one or two staffers, often organizationally situated in the Line-of-Business IT function of a core business unit, as part of my workshop with said company. These unsung heroes are typically analyst-level folks who have the dubious pleasure of being the, what I call, Human ...

Talend Blog - Tue, 03/26/2019 - 18:58
When doing data matching with large sets of data, consideration should be given to the combinations that can be generated, and it’s associated effects on performance.

Matching routines do not scale in a linear fashion.   For those that have read my various blogs and articles on data matching, you already know that the basic premise behind data matching is the mathematics of probabilities.

Life Might Be Like a Box of Chocolates, But Your Data Strategy Shouldn’t Be

Talend Blog - Tue, 03/26/2019 - 03:16
“My momma always said, “Life was like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.” Even if everyone’s life remains full of surprises, the truth is that what applied to Forrest Gump in the 1994 movie by Robert Zemeckis, shouldn’t apply to your data strategy. As you’re making the very first steps into your data strategy, you need to first know what’s inside your data. And this part is critical.  To do so, you need the tools and methodology to step up your data-driven str...

Informatica Blog - Mon, 03/25/2019 - 17:00
“Water, water everywhere, nor any drop to drink” goes the oft-repeated line from Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s famous poem “The Rime of the Ancient Mariner.” The same could be said about the challenge of finding relevant data in a sea of data as enterprises embark on digital transformation of their businesses. Digitization of business is leading to a data deluge and there’s data everywhere across the enterprise – traditional on-premises systems, a variety of multi-cloud environments, and new c...

Why a Modern iPaaS Should Resemble a Great Sports Team

Informatica Blog - Thu, 03/21/2019 - 17:00
Great software and great sports teams share many things in common, chief among them: they both seek to build a roadmap for sustained success. But, a majority of technology products and sports teams tend to hover on the borderline of average to mediocre. If we think of sports teams, very few of them achieve sustained success like that achieved by teams such as the Golden State Warriors, Manchester United, or many other great teams of the past. Love them or loathe them, they have figured out the m...

Time for Spring Cleaning? Double-Down on AI-Powered Data Strategy Across Multi-Cloud Environments

Informatica Blog - Tue, 03/19/2019 - 17:00
Spring is just around the corner. Spring is the period between spring equinox and summer solstice. The equinox is the time Sun’s center crosses Earth’s equator – which means you would see sun rising exactly from the east and setting exactly in the west. And this celestial alignment results in equal length of day and night (almost!). And it is the time of super moon and glowing clouds. In northern hemisphere, this day falls in March and in southern hemisphere it falls in September. It’s a traditi...

6 Ways to Start Utilizing Machine Learning with Amazon Web Services and Talend

Talend Blog - Thu, 03/14/2019 - 16:35
A common perspective that I see amongst software designers and developers is that Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence (AI) are technologies which are only meant for an elite group. However, if a particular technology is to truly succeed and scale, it should be friendly with the common man (in this case a normal software developer). In this blog, I would like to discuss how Amazon Web Services (AWS) has changed the landscape of Machine Learning and AI through its various services and how...

Best Practices for Using Context Variables with Talend – Part 4

Last night it occurred to me that everything in the last three parts of this blog series ( Part 1 / Part 2 / Part 3 ) had been oriented towards the Talend on-premise solution. Many developers I have worked with over the years are moving to Talend Cloud. I too have moved much of my code to the cloud as well. In fact, to build a lot of the collateral for this blog, I had to go back to my old on-premise environment to put it together. I then got to thinking, “would these best practices work in Tale...
