The MDM solution offered by Talend consists of a comprehensive set of tools and functions, many of which are accessible from a single interface called Talend Studio.
Inside Talend Studio you will find:
Data integration features, available from the Integration perspective, that ensure that master data can be integrated from a wide range of sources. The result is an innovative and powerful data integration solution with hundreds of ELT/ETL connectors enabling interaction with multiple sources and the synchronization of enterprise systems. From the Integration perspective, users can design different Jobs using a dedicated component group that allows bulk loading of data. Moreover, MDM's event management and Talend Jobs are tightly coupled so that users can call a Job from within Talend Studio to validate, correct or propagate data in the MDM Hub.
Data profiling and quality features, available from the Profiling perspective, that enable the profiling and cleansing of the source data before loading it into the MDM Hub, to help guarantee high standards of master data quality in your company. From the Profiling perspective, users can profile and clean data from various sources before loading it into the MDM Hub.
Master data management features, available from the MDM perspective, that enable you to build data models employing the necessary business and data rules to create one single master copy of the data which will be propagated back to the source and target systems.
Data resolution features, provided within Talend MDM Web User Interface through Talend Data Stewardship Console, to deal with records that arrive following a match operation from different data sources and where a decision needs to be taken to come up with the golden master data record.
A workflow editor, available from the BPM perspective, to design workflows in which a sequence of operations can be defined, laid out and shared in a graphical format. For more information on how to create and manage workflows, see Workflows.
Talend Studio bundles Data Integration, Data Profiling and Data Quality and Master Data Management capabilities in a single tool to enable the management of the complete data life cycle: from data integration to quality assurance, through to the identification of master data and its governance.
