Talend automates Snowflake migrations


Cloud data specialist Talend offers an automated migration service from any on-premise and legacy data warehouse and ETL environment to the cloud-based Snowflake data warehouse.

Moving from one data warehouse to another isn't something most organisations do very often, so it makes sense to get outside help with the migration.

Talend says it can help companies quickly migrate to a cloud data warehouse.

Common reasons for such migrations include a desire to sidestep technical debt, or to avoid the high cost of scaling legacy environments.

Talend applies Blade Bridge technology to simplify the process of migrating from almost any on-premises data integration environment to Snowflake by automating the migration of data along with ETL scripts, databases, tables, views, stored procedures, and functions from on-premise databases and ETL products.

Features include support for structured and unstructured data, batch and real-time streaming, segmentation into into virtual data marts, self-service tools (for data preparation, data integration, and data quality), and simplified administration of ETL and data warehouses.

"In the past, migration costs for data warehouses have prohibited many organizations from considering cloud data warehouse options. Now, we have an automated solution that will migrate legacy environments to Snowflake without breaking customers' budgets," said Talend senior vice president of business development Michael Pickett.

"We are committed to helping all of our customers navigate the cloud data integration space and couldn't be more thrilled to offer this program. Furthermore, this conversion offering is available to all system integration partners making it accessible to their clients."

Snowflake vice president of partner and alliances Colleen Kapase said "As our customers look to modernise their data analytics, they want to ensure a successful cloud migration strategy across multiple clouds with minimal disruption. With the help of Talend and Snowflake, these customers now have an industry-leading automated approach compared to a manual migration effort.

"Customers can now complete complex migration projects for data integration and analytics enabling greater collaboration between IT and business teams."
