Infobright, an open source data warehousing company, and Talend, a provider of open source data integration software, reportedly have entered into a technology partnership.
The move is intended to bridge diverse data structures, according to the companies. Talend’s open source data integration solutions facilitate efficient data transfers between source applications or databases and the data warehouse. The new, joint solution from Talend and Infobright will offer the same power and performance as proprietary software, at only a fraction of its cost.
Data administrators now can completely manage data sources, data transformations, and Extract, Transform, Load, or “ETL” process scheduling with the help of Talend Open Studio and Talend Integration Suite. This includes near real-time transformation and loading without developing external batch processes.
The connector will be available in the next 30 days, according to the companies. With this, users of Talend’s enterprise open source data integration solutions can leverage the fast data loader built into Infobright Enterprise Edition. Infobright claims that IEE is highly scalable, self-managing analytic data warehouse software that reduces ongoing management by up to 90 percent. The company also claims that it costs considerably less than other data warehouse solutions.
Talend is the first provider of open source data integration software. The company released the first version of Talend Open Studio in 2006. Apart from being used in ETL for Business Intelligence and Data Warehousing, Talend’s solutions are used primarily for migration and integration between operational systems.
Infobright has worked on the development of self-managing data warehouse software. The company has released its new 32-bit Linux version of Infobright Community Edition, open source data warehouse software.
“Talend provides the critical data transformation and load layer of a BI solution, and the Infobright connector will make it much easier for our customers to design, build, and manage an efficient data warehouse that meets the specific demands of their particular business processes,” said Miriam Tuerk, president and chief executive officer of Infobright. “We will continue to form alliances with top-tier partners in the BI/data warehouse ecosystem in order to provide customers with cost-effective, end-to-end solutions that foster successful deployments and accelerate adoption.”
