Overview

Welcome to the Talend 5.3 Beta Wiki page!

This page contains all the information required to participate in the Talend Beta program.

Please note: this page will be updated throughout the program which will runs from May 3 to June 18.

Open Invitation to You

Talend Customers are invited to participate in our worldwide beta testing for version 5.3.1. As a beta test participant, you'll get to see the the new features of Talend 5.3.1 prior to the official release. The Beta Program is open to all Talend customers.

With version 5.3, Talend continues to expand big data capabilities, update team-focused features, develop compatibility with more architectures and improve overall performance.

Your feedback will directly impact the quality of the final release -- our developers are standing by!

We are currently seeking applications from customers who are interested in participating in the beta testing. Once approved, Talend will provide you with an “as-is” beta release of version 5.3.1.  The software may be deployed in your organization in two ways:

  • Managed Beta Program – A Talend consultant will be scheduled to come onsite for a Beta visit during which s/he will install the product on your test server and help manage the process of beta testing within your unique environment. This program has a fee associated with it.
  • Beta Preview – Talend will give you access to a beta version of Talend v5.3.1. Your team will manage the installation and testing of the software.

OUR COMMITMENT

  • Provide early access to Talend v5.3.1
  • Listen to your feedback and try to address as many issues as we can before the final release of the product
  • Answer your questions on the forum and provide responses to reported issues in a timely manner
  • Ultimately, to strive to ensure the highest product quality and testing standards

YOUR COMMITMENT

Of course, within any partnership, there is commitment on both sides.

We ask you to:

  • Complete our online survey
  • Sign a disclaimer stating (via EchoSign), among other things, that you accept that this is a beta version of the software
  • Test the software and help us put it through its paces during the testing
  • Provide us with feedback, including logging issues in JIRA
  • Post your feedback, warts and all to our special online forums
  • Help us maintain a constructive dialog with fellow testers. Talend development and services team members will be online help answer your questions

How to join

Online applications to the Beta program are now closed. If you are still interested in getting involved please contact Support@talend.com.

Beta Tester Resources

Once beta testing commences, a dedicated Talend JIRA and Forum will be available to beta testers to log issues and provide feedback. Both of these resources will be monitored by our Support team and they will endeavor to provide feedback to all questions posted. When file a bug report, you should use 5.3.0Beta as the 'Fix Version'.

FAQ

General Questions

What is the goal of the beta?

The Beta Program is an extension to the customer relationship, designed to gather your feedback so Talend can verify that:

  • New product version is compatible with existing content.
  • Developers have an opportunity to test their content and applications prior to the product release to help identify bugs on a variety of machines and configurations.
  • The newest features are thoroughly tested and empowers users to stay current with the latest versions of the Talend.

Who can join the beta?

Customers are invited to the v5.3 Beta Program. Places are limited to 10 Managed Beta Customers

Why should I join the beta?

The Talend 5.3 Beta Program is a unique opportunity for customers to see their previous feedback delivered as product, glimpse into many of the latest features and to give priority feedback on this and other releases. Your feedback directly impacts the development of current and future versions of Talend.

How it works

How do I join?

Talk to your Talend sales representative or simply complete our online application form.

What am I required to do?

Participants are requested to complete two questionnaires - one application at the start and one survey at the end of the program - which are used to gauge the effectiveness of the product and program.

All participants are required to e-sign the Beta Program License Agreement.

Participants must create an account in Talend JIRA (Bug Tracking System) in order to raise any bugs and issues.

Will I get support?

All reports will be logged in JIRA and a Beta-forum will be available for discussion and feedback. The forum will be monitored by our support team.

Will all issues be resolved prior to release?

The Talend development team strives to meet the functional and quality requirements of all our customers. All service requests will be reviewed and prioritized. However, it is not possible at this time to predict which requests will be addressed prior to the release. Talend will work closely with customers to identify key issues, if any, and schedule resolutions for them in a timely manner.

Can beta software be used in production?

Beta software is not considered to be "production-ready" and must not be used in a production system.
