No more Talend Open Studio. What should you do?

Qlik announced that Talend Open Studio, the non-commercial version of Talend Studio, will be discontinued by January 31, 2024.

It means that you would still be able to use it, but beware, as you would expose your company to:

  • security vulnerabilities,
  • increasing incompatibilities,
  • compliance risks,
  • lack of new connectors,
  • and an increased maintenance effort.

Depending on what you’re pipelines are doing, and the criticality of your data operations, you want to at least plan a migration in the year. Here are open-source and free alternatives:

  • Apache NiFi: An easy-to-use data processing and distribution system designed for data streaming and automation. It has a nice graphical interface to draw pipelines, just like Talend Studio. I would use it mostly for streaming data between systems, if you have transformation processes, check the next alternative.
  • Apache Karavan, using Apache Camel, which is the same framework Talend is actually using behind the hood. Karavan also has a GUI on which you can build-by-drawing and monitor pipelines. You can then deploy the pipelines in various environments: Kubernetes, Spring boot, Quarkus…

These are free, open-source GUI-based tools, but the list of tools to perform data integration is endless. Everyday new products are coming to “revolutionize” the data integration space. What actually matters is to maximize efficiency and minimize cost and maintenance. 📉
