ETAI's advanced expertise and media mix apply to three industries: automotive, manufacturing and retail. It's a vast domain, and there is no standard for data. As a result, each time a new version of a database product is released (over a hundred times a year), all these repositories need to be processed: data consolidation, reconciliation and cleansing. After each vendor had built their prototype, ETAI compared the results and weighted each criteria based on the risk it presented for the success of the projects. Beyond the performance and feature set of each tool, the robustness of the vendor, its geographical location and its ability to assist the ETAI teams in the long run were critical factors. Talend's solution, which best met ETAI's criteria, was selected.
