We enable companies to transform their business by delivering trusted data at the speed of business. Talend offers a suite of apps for data integration and integrity that brings data, people and technology together by generating end-to-end data pipelines.

Imagine what you can do here. At Talend, it is not just about technology. It’s about helping customers capitalize on the potential of “big data” by identifying, collecting, analysing and simplifying the data to make sense of all the information available.
