Better Together

The integration of Qlik and Talend marks a pivotal moment in our journey to provide customers with unparalleled capabilities spanning data integration, data quality, and governance. The strategic alignment of our teams and technologies positions us as a leading force in solving a wide variety of business challenges. Since Qlik’s acquisition of Talend, in May, our united entity has grown, boasting over 3600 employees globally and a robust user and partner community.

And the industry agrees. Gartner recently evaluated 21 data integration vendors and named both Qlik and Talend as a Leader in the 2023 Magic Quadrant for Data Integration Tools — the first for Qlik and an amazing the eighth year in a row for Talend.

Best-in-Class Capabilities

The core philosophy driving our strategy is the delivery of best-in-class capabilities. By combining Qlik's expertise in analytics with Talend's leadership in data integration and quality, we present a unified solution. Our joint capabilities cover real-time data movement, ELT (Extract, Load, Transform) processes, data quality, governance, and more.

The Data Fabric for Modern Architectures

A key concept in our vision is the "data fabric." We see it as a crucial component to assist our customers in navigating diverse data use cases and architectures, which has renewed emphasis as organizations are looking to create AI-ready data. Whether it's traditional data stores, data lakes, warehouses, or application integration, our goal is to offer a unified platform that spans a wide range of use cases.

The focus of our data fabric includes capturing data changes in real-time, ensuring transactional consistency, transforming data into various shapes, ensuring quality and implementing governance for trust. This approach aligns with the modern architecture needs of organizations, providing a single platform for diverse data challenges.

Vision and Roadmap for 2024

Our roadmap for 2024 revolves around addressing four major challenges faced by our customers:

Agility, scale and flexibility - decoupling the control plane from the data plane to address even the most complex deployments.

Modern data engineering - leveraging automation to overcome the skills and resource limitations.

Data products - a new approach to deliver high-quality, readily accessible domain-centric and trusted data across the organization.

AI-optimized future - creating trusted AI-ready data and infusing the AI/ML throughout the Qlik Talend platform to deliver efficiency at every step of the data integration process.

The integration of Qlik and Talend’s leading technology has created an unmatched set of capabilities empowering organizations to harness the full potential of their data.
