Paris, France & Rome, Italy - February 21st, 2007 – Talend, the market leading ETL Open Source software provider, and Engineering Ingegneria Informatica, Italy’s leading IT services company, today announced the completion of a technological partnership. Under the terms of the agreement, Talend Open Studio and SpagoBI will integrate each other as data integration and Business Intelligence services.

Developed by Engineering, SpagoBI is the foremost business intelligence platform in the Open Source world, the only one containing enterprise class modules. Besides satisfying the traditional analysis requirements (reporting, multidimensional analysis - OLAP -, dashboard, data mining, free inquiry) SpagoBI develops original modules specifically oriented to support the collaboration between users and the enrichment of information. With its modular approach, users can create a flexible and practical business intelligence platform that meets their specific needs.

"Our products are both technically and functionally complementary, which inspired Engineering to select Talend Open Studio; the SpagoBI platform already offers a large number of business intelligence functionalities and now it can add the market’s most effective data integration tool, in terms of ergonomics, connectivity and interoperability," said Bertrand Diard, co-founder and CEO in Talend. "This partnership allows us to expand our international presence, particularly in Southern Europe."

"This collaboration adds value to SpagoBI that integrates Talend Open Studio as a privileged ETL tool for the data warehouse feeding and as a transport and data processing engine within the platform", stated Gabriele Ruffatti, Architectures & Consulting Director, Engineering’s Research & Innovation Division. "But the partnership will go beyond, aiming at the same time at the realization of a new data integration platform on SOA architecture and more, at the supply of support services for the open source solutions".

Engineering - ObjectWeb corporate member - and Talend are joining OW2 Consortium, the new organization merging ObjectWeb and OrientWare communities, aiming at developing open source code middleware and to foster a vibrant community and business ecosystem.

"Talend and Engineering partnership is exactly the kind of relationship we expect to see developing between our members for they own benefit and that of the whole OW2 business ecosystem" said Cédric Thomas, CEO of OW2 Consortium.
