Overview of this book

Talend Open Studio for Data Integration (TOS) is an open source graphical development environment for creating custom integrations between systems. It comes with over 600 pre-built connectors that make it quick and easy to connect databases, transform files, load data, move, copy and rename files and connect individual components in order to define complex integration processes. "Getting Started with Talend Open Studio for Data Integration" illustrates common uses and scenarios in a simple, practical manner and, building on knowledge as the book progresses, works towards more complex integration solutions. TOS is a code generator and so does a lot of the "heavy lifting"ù for you. As such, it is a suitable tool for experienced developers and non-developers alike. You'll start by learning how to construct some common integrations tasks ñ transforming files and extracting data from a database, for example. These building blocks form a "toolkit"ù of techniques that you will learn how to apply in many different situations. By the end of the book, once complex integrations will appear easy and you will be your organization's integration expert! Best of all, TOS makes integrating systems fun!

About the Author
About the Reviewers


Talend’s open source approach shatters the traditional proprietary model by supplying open, innovative, and powerful software solutions with the flexibility to meet the needs of all the organizations. By publishing the code of its core modules under the GNU Public License or the Apache License, Talend offers the developer community the ability to improve products and make enhancements that can benefit everyone.

Contributions from the community are critical to the success of Talend’s products. They take many different forms: code contributions, extensions such as connectors and components, documentation and tutorials, community support and help, and more.

Documentation is probably one of the most important aspects of the usability experience. Without good learning and reference materials, the best software is impossible to fully master. Contributions from the community to this usability experience are hence very important and they participate to the broad adoption effort.

It should be no surprise then that Talend is supportive of initiatives such as this book. By providing an angle enriched by his real-life experience, the author guides the user of Talend Open Studio through a learning experience that is complementary to the user documentation provided by Talend.
