How Talend aims to streamline cloud data deployments
Talend announced its new technology partner program, which extends and accelerates the development of partner-built solutions for Talend’s comprehensive integration suite, Talend Data Fabric.
The new Technology Alliance Program is available worldwide and provides partners with access integration tool kits, product licenses for testing and demonstration, marketing assistance, and technical resources, including development support to speed the building of value-added data integrations and connectors for customers.
The program provides access to two open source development tool kits: Talend Component Kit (TCK), which is used to create read/write connectors and data processing components for Talend Cloud, and Singer.io, which is used to create straightforward read connectors, called Singer taps, that can be used with Talend’s Stitch Data Loader to easily ingest data into industry-leading cloud data warehouses and data lakes.
Using Singer.io, invoiced, a cloud-based accounts receivable platform, quickly wrote a Singer tap for their application, which now allows their customers to easily move their data into a cloud data warehouse for analysis and reporting.
"Thanks to the ease of building an Invoiced Singer tap and integrating it with Stitch Data Loader, our mutual customers can easily move valuable Invoiced billing and collections data directly into their data warehouses,” says Invoiced CEO Jared King. “For any business that is doing a high volume of billing and collection activities, the Invoiced-Stitch integration can provide a major enhancement to the broader BI picture."
The latest version of the Talend Component Kit SDK serves as an easy-to-use and comprehensive development framework. TCK comes with a rich set of pre-defined classes, methods, and functions to streamline the component development process and make them easily portable across Talend products.
Using TCK, partners can quickly build both single-function and highly intricate component integrations that enable native bi-directional connectivity or improve integrations between Talend and the partner’s application. This framework makes the component development process leading to more frictionless customer experience and quicker time to value.
As part of the company’s broader partner program, Talend’s Technology Alliance Program supports the development of partner-built integrations that help deliver high-value and innovative solutions to joint customers. These partner-built integrations will also benefit Talend’s existing ecosystem of VAR and SIs, expanding the scope and completeness of custom solutions built for customers.
