By   /  June 5, 2018  /  No Comments

According to a new press release, “Talend, a global leader in cloud data integration, and Snowflake Computing, the data warehouse built for the cloud, today announced the availability of new, high-performance bulk loading and native, Extract, Load, Transform (ELT) push-down capabilities that make it fast and efficient to move massive data volumes and varieties from on-premises to Snowflake for cost-effective and scalable analytics. The companies are also promoting free 30-day trials of Talend Cloud and Snowflake to jump-start customer cloud projects and introduce an entirely new audience of developers and companies to how quick and easy it can be to move to the cloud. Included with the trials is a tutorial to lead users through the common use case of transferring data from Salesforce. The tutorial includes step-by-step instructions for accessing, extracting, and filtering data from Salesforce.com and writing filtered results to Snowflake for analytics.”

The release goes on, “A Talend and Snowflake customer, Decision Resources Group (DRG) is the premier source for global healthcare data and market intelligence. DRG software-as-a-service (SaaS) products, built using extensive real-world data and research insights, are designed to empower organizations to succeed in complex healthcare markets. The company turned to Talend and Snowflake to streamline their existing data assets company-wide, generate deeper customer insights and develop new products. ‘We had a period of extremely rapid data growth combined with high demands from a growing user community, and our existing infrastructure was not able to scale effectively,’ said Sven Junkergard, CTO, DRG. ‘Our team searched for the best possible technology to support our new reality and we decided to move forward with the combination of Snowflake and Talend. After an initial, brief period of rebuilding existing capabilities on this new platform, we were able to quickly implement new functionality. Today, we are supporting many times more data and users than before our move. The Snowflake and Talend combination has been a great success story for us so far’.”
