Talend Connect 2018 — Architecting for the Future
This IDC Market Note presents highlights from Talend's annual user conference, Talend Connect, held in Brooklyn, New York, May 8 and 9, 2018. The tagline for this year's conference was "Architecting Your Data-Driven Future" and was appropriate as Talend made announcements about new products that help bridge the business-IT gap, including the ability to work with streaming data in support of streaming analytics and decision making, and how it is moving toward microservices and container architectures."Data is the lifeblood of the digital transformation platform, and organizations that are able to provide business users with more access to timely data while increasing business accountability for data will have a higher opportunity for success," said Stewart Bond, director of Data Integration and Integrity Software research at IDC. "Talend is architecting for the future, driving toward simplification and business-friendly data applications built in microservices running in containers for more cost-effective use of server and serverless computing resources."
