Re: NEW: Talend Cloud Story Contest

  1. What was the challenge you faced? One of our automotive clients receives data from a vendor. The vendor provides sales data in a flat file format to our client that would be used to generate interactive mobile reports using Roambi. The challenge face was migrating data from flat file sources into Roambi.
  2. Why did you decide to use the cloud? As an IT Consulting firm, we are constantly looking for ways to get projects done for our clients more efficiently. A lot of our clients choose us for our low cost model and our quickness. We searched for solutions to cut our time down and found Talend. Now, a project that might have taken us 8 hours now takes us 30 minutes with Talend.
  3. What cloud technology did you choose? Amazon.
  4. Walk us through how you solved the problem.

Here's the workflow we used:

A. Flat file data from Polk will be selected as data input in Talend job

B. Talend job runs and filters or transforms data real time

C. Talend writes a flat file in the format that Roambi expects

D. Upload new file to Roambi

      5. What was the business impact? (e.g. Did it create more sales, drive less costs, or increase productivity? Feel free to illustrate both the technical and emotional benefits you or the organization realized.)

Talend is such a robust platform with so many time and money saving features. The time it took to complete this task was cut significantly. Now, if we want to do something similar for a different client, we can do it quickly and efficiency. This frees up time for us to work on other projects and help other clients. The main benefits we saw were:

-Reduced costs of developer rates

-Highly efficient ETL

-Less errors due to nonmanual entry

-Customized to meet our needs

-Support from the Talend community

-Adaptable to different needs

Now, when our clients come to us, we can confidently suggest a solution that involves Talend. We cannot recommend it enough!
