Talend, which recently added ESB capabilities to its data integration platform, has added business process management (BPM) capabilities to Talend Unified Platform v5, announced this week at Gartner’s AADI Summit in Las Vegas, Nev. The move is part of the company’s effort to bring application and data integration closer together.
While Talend purchased its ESB capabilities (via acquisition of Sopera in 2010), it has chosen an OEM partnership with open source BPM maker BonitaSoft to fill-in its Talend Enterprise BPM offering.
Talend v5 with BPM enables users to integrate business workflows into their existing application and data infrastructure, said Yves de Montcheuil, vice president, marketing, Talend.
There are several reasons why application and data integration are converging, he said. “Organizations are under pressure to bring together the technologies to help efficiencies, but also to get more consistency in the way you bring data to integration,” said de Montcheuil.
He said the BPM software will add useful orchestration service support to the overall offering. Meanwhile, BPM can become part of the governance process, given the new integration.
