LOS ALTOS, Calif.--()--Talend, the recognized market leader in open source data management software, today announced that the Center for Operational Oceanographic Products and Services (CO-OPS), a program office under the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), a federal agency focused on climate, weather, oceanography, ecosystems, disaster response and marine transportation, has selected Talend Integration Suite to drive down costs and improve the ease of integrating its metadata database systems. As a result, CO-OPS now has an ideal data management solution that is helping the development team in transitioning station information data from its operational metadata databases to a consolidated metadata database currently under development.
“The Talend Integration Suite has proven itself, by helping to efficiently and effectively speed up our metadata database consolidation effort”
CO-OPS receives a high level of complex water level, water currents and meteorological data from its field stations via satellites and other acquisition methods, providing citizens, planners, emergency managers and other decision makers with reliable information. CO-OPS stores this information in two major databases. As part of re-engineering its information architecture, CO-OPS’ needed a data management solution to migrate information from the agency’s existing databases into a new database.
Talend Integration Suite is an open source enterprise data integration solution designed to support multi-user development and to scale to the highest levels of data volumes and process complexity. The Talend Integration Suite provided CO-OPS with a cost-effective, open source, tool with rich functionality for the integration of complex metadata in its existing databases into the new database.
“The Talend Integration Suite has proven itself, by helping to efficiently and effectively speed up our metadata database consolidation effort,” said Andrea Hardy, Ph.D., ISD Deputy Division Chief for NOAA/CO-OPS.
Project Performance Corporation (PPC) is the implementation partner for the Re-engineering of Information Architecture at NOAA/CO-OPS. “Many organizations and individuals count on NOAA’s information for decision making so it is critical that it be consistent and reliable. The Talend Integration Suite was easy to deploy and had given NOAA/CO-OPS a significant boost in productivity in integrating its complex data sets and a level of confidence they require to meet the needs of their wide range of customers,” said Rajeev Kumar, VP of Project Performance Corporation.
“Federal government agencies like the NOAA understand that their valuable data is only useful if it can be easily integrated into their existing IT systems to help power informed and analytical decisions,” said Vincent Pineau, Talend’s vice president and general manager, Americas. “The agency’s selection of Talend to fill this requirement is further validation that Talend’s cost optimized, open source data management solutions are becoming an emerging data management standard in the public and private sector.”
