Mon, 03/23/2020 - 10:00
  The more time I spend working with data, and watching how our customers work with data, the more convinced I am of two things: 1) the power to do extraordinary things is embedded within data and 2) all of us working or dealing with data have a role to play in using our knowhow and technology to apply data to benefit humanity and tackle some of the biggest challenges of our lifetime – the environment, equality, education, health and safety.

    Can you keep a secret? What will it take for me to trust you to keep and protect a secret that I share with you? If you are a friend or family member, I may not need more than you saying “Yes”, but if I don’t know you, I will likely want additional guarantees or proof that I can trust you. This is particularly true if you are an organization handling personal information about me. In such case, I will want to be reassured by others that you are trustworthy and that my information ...

Revealing the Intelligence in your Data with Talend Winter’20 (part 1)

Thu, 03/05/2020 - 02:11
One of my favorite Talend customer success stories is the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ). I love this story not only because they transformed investigation journalism with data, won the Pulitzer prize for the Panama papers, and helped the public to recover billions of dollars  lost to illegal tax evasion. The story is also fascinating because they managed to decipher intelligence out of highly disparate and unknown data that they got from some of the history’s large...

Like the Infinity Stones, keep your Talend services as far apart as possible

Mon, 01/13/2020 - 14:00
Ok, so we all probably know why keeping all Infinity Stones in one place is a bad idea, right? You must now be wondering what the relationship between Infinity Stones and Talend could be. Worry not, Thanos isn’t coming and there is a reasonable explanation behind the MCU fandom references, I promise. I like to use this analogy to emphasize how distributing your Talend services among different servers according to Talend recommended architecture guidelines is as important as keeping the Infinity ...

Mon, 12/23/2019 - 16:40
