Talend MDM CE v3.2.0
Field Report


  • Lower cost than proprietary MDM solutions
  • Proven commercial open source expertise & business model from recognized market leader in open source data integration
  • Market-proven, XML-based MDM with 100% non-intrusive SOA -- Amalto Xtentis heritage
  • Integration with Talend open source data quality & data integrtion (ETL) capabilities
  • Multi-entity MDM support -- customers, suppliers, products, organization, employees, ...


  • Lacking "active data governance" (upstream)
  • Lacking identity resolution
  • Poor MDM brand recognition outside of France
  • Lacking North American references -- customers are primarily B2B organizations in France
  • Perceived as B2B exchange focus due to Amalto prior positioning -- i.e., operational B2B MDM use cases
  • Under invested in marketing
  • Uncertain strategy re: software-as-a-service MDM capability (ongoing Amalto relationship as software appliance for B2B transactions)
