Talend Upgrades Its Open Source Middleware to Provide Holistic Integration

Open source software maker Talend has dished out the version 5 of its unified integration platform, the company announced.

Talend claimed that the new version brings a ‘holistic' approach to integration, allow organisations to use common products, tools and best practices for integration of data, applications and business processes.

The Talend Unified Platform version 5 allows enterprise users to access a common platform which can be used to run an application independently or in co-ordination with others.

The company said that the new version had been designed to see to enterprise needs for cloud computing and big data.

Companies using hybrid clouds are required to run and manage a combination of public and private clouds, on-premise systems and Software-as-a-Service platforms. Talend's platform could come in handy for integrating these platforms to work seamlessly.

"In the past, organizations have shied away from a common approach to their integration needs, as the available products generally focused on a single area of integration," said Fabrice Bonan, co-founder and chief operating officer, Talend in a press release.

"Increased pressure on IT organizations to implement solutions faster with increasingly constrained budgets and to meet the demand for real-time business analytics are driving forces behind combining these integration approaches," he added.
