The PRWIRE Press Releases https:// 2021-06-29T22:39:12Z Talend Extends APAC Presence with Cloud Data Infrastructure in Australia to Serve Customer Growth 2021-06-29T22:39:12Z talend-extends-apac-presence-with-cloud-data-infrastructure-in-australia-to-serve-customer-growth SYDNEY - June 30, 2021 - Talend (NASDAQ: TLND), a global leader in data integration and data integrity, today announced the opening of its newest regional cloud data infrastructure in Australia to support Talend’s expansion and growth in Asia Pacific (APAC). Talend’s new cloud data infrastructure will provide Australian enterprises with confidence and clarity into their data while addressing regional data sovereignty, privacy, residency, and performance requirements. The Sydney-based cloud infrastructure, operated on Amazon Web Services, Inc (AWS), will be operational to host customers in July 2021. According to Gartner, “the events of last year allowed CIOs to overcome any reluctance of moving mission critical workloads from on-premises to the cloud. Even absent the pandemic there would still be a loss of appetite for data centres."[1] Gartner forecasted in other research that Australian Public Cloud spending would reach USD 7.3 billion by the end of 2021, increasing 18.4% from last year, with cloud application services (SaaS) spending rising by 16.9%.[2] “Our underlying technology platform based on Talend has helped us disrupt the traditional, static financial services model, creating a real-time data-driven business and culture across our organisation" said Andrew Bates, Chief Technology Officer at Harmoney. "Having a Talend instance located in the Australia/New Zealand Region will assist us to further align with regional requirements given potential future data legislation changes and benefit our customers. I'm very excited about the company's future growth across Australia and New Zealand and look forward to a productive ongoing relationship with Talend." As industry and government regulations evolve, Talend's customers can maintain flexibility to keep up with the changes. By reducing compliance and operational risk with a cloud data infrastructure deployed independently in Australia, Talend can maintain high standards regarding data residency, security, data sovereignty, and operational best practices. “Our clients are increasingly adopting Cloud capabilities to help improve customer service, drive innovation, or just to keep up with competition. Cloud gives our clients the power to transform and reinvent their business,” said Thierry Lotrian, Partner Analytics & Cognitive at Deloitte Australia. “It is fantastic to have Technology organisations like Talend investing in the local Australian market when it comes to Cloud infrastructure enabling Australian businesses and government alike to ride the next wave of technology driven innovation. Having the data centre in Australia will play a critical role in complying with the data sovereignty requirements that many of our clients have in Australia.” A unified approach to data, consistent with organisational needs and governance practices, requires fully transparent data management processes as well as documented and communal data quality standards. Talend Data Fabric is a single platform that delivers complete, clean, and uncompromised data in real-time. As more data is ingested and analysed, Talend helps companies clearly understand, in a quantifiable way, the overall reliability, risk, and return of their data, — one of their most valuable business assets. "Every business is now in the data business. In support of Talend’s growing market, I'm delighted to announce the addition of new cloud data infrastructure in Australia," said Stu Garrow, Senior Vice President and General Manager APAC at Talend. "As strategic partners to our customers, it's important that we offer insight on holistic, big-picture data solutions that solve business problems and give clarity and confidence in their data. I'm excited to see Talend's continued growth and this significant investment to create a framework designed for data health solutions of our customers' success."

Talend Partners with Snowflake in Breakthrough Development to Deliver Healthy, Analytics-Ready Data at Scale Inside Data Cloud 2021-06-10T00:06:35Z talend-partners-with-snowflake-in-breakthrough-development-to-deliver-healthy-analytics-ready-data-at-scale-inside-data-cloud REDWOOD CITY, Calif. - June 9, 2021 - Talend (NASDAQ: TLND), a global leader in data integration and integrity, today announced that it is working closely with Snowflake, the Data Cloud Company, to offer an instant way for users to verify the quality of their data inside Data Cloud. Announced at Snowflake Summit 2021, Talend Trust Score(TM) for Snowflake leverages Snowpark to immediately assess and improve data accuracy inside a Snowflake environment, delivering quality data and helping companies drive quicker business decisions. In a recent survey, at least half of executives don’t have a high degree of confidence in their company’s ability to deliver quality data in terms of data accuracy, consistency, accessibility, or completeness. To begin to address this concern, Talend is collaborating with Snowflake to deliver data quality capabilities within Snowflake. This will make it possible for organisations to make sense of all their data with speed and accuracy and more easily address compliance rules and regulations. "With Talend and Snowflake, customers will be able to confidently make business decisions with healthy data, to uncover new business opportunities, accelerate growth, and increase customer engagement that can generate new revenue streams,” said Tarik Dwiek, Sr. Director of Technology Alliances. Leveraging Snowflake’s Snowpark developer environment and Java UDFs, Talend Trust Score for Snowflake with Snowflake makes it possible for customers to use sophisticated data profiling algorithms directly to perform reliability checks on their Snowflake data. With a simple click, Snowflake customers will be able to increase their performance and accuracy by running quality checks on entire data sets without the use of external applications or moving sample sets. It also addresses data privacy and sovereignty concerns by keeping processing inside Snowflake so no data leaves the environment. Talend runs, computes, and scales entirely natively within Snowflake using Snowpark and Java UDF, reducing risks, complexity, and costs, and helping organisations meet compliance rules and regulations. “It’s not enough to simply collect, move and prepare data more efficiently. The need for trusted data aligns with conversations I’m having with customers and many of our consulting and delivery partners,” said Rolf Heimes, Global Head of Business Development, Talend. “Data has become a black box that leaves us open to inefficiencies, missed opportunities, and even catastrophic failure. There needs to be a way to provide a clear perspective on the reliability, usability, and value of the data in any organisation. As a first step, Talend has developed Trust Score for Snowflake to give Snowflake users an easy way to keep their business safer and bring confidence to every decision.” For more information on Talend Trust Score for Snowflake, please visit this blog: https://community.talend.com/s/article/Boundless-capabilities-with-Snowflake-UDF-Snowpark-and-Talend About Talend  Talend (NASDAQ: TLND), a leader in data integration and data integrity, is changing the way the world makes decisions.

ENDS Despite Data’s Importance, More Than A Third of Business Leaders Don’t Use It for Critical Decisions 2021-05-12T22:48:20Z despite-datas-importance-more-than-a-third-of-business-leaders-dont-use-it-for-critical-decisions Sydney – May 12, 2021 –Talend, (NASDAQ: TLND), a global leader in data integration and integrity, today released the results of a survey that highlighted the challenges businesses face in becoming data-driven organisations and the solutions to these challenges. It’s clear that business leaders know how important data is — two-thirds report that they use data every day (76% of APAC respondents). Yet 78% of these leaders say they face challenges in using their data (96% of APAC respondents), and more than a third say they simply aren’t using it to make the majority of their decisions (35% of APAC respondents). There’s a difference between data-saturated and data-driven. Companies have more access to data than ever before, but there’s very little way to make sense of it. Only half of executives highly rate their ability to deliver the basics (45% of APAC respondents): timely, accessible, complete, and accurate data. Data management companies have been offering to solve these problems for years — but they’re focused on the mechanics of data like moving it and storing it. “Our relationship with data is unhealthy. Only 40% of executives always trust the data they work with (45% of APAC respondents), and more than a third of executives are still making decisions based on gut instincts (35% of APAC respondents),” said Christal Bemont, CEO, Talend. “The reality of data is falling well short of the industry’s vision. Data management, which largely focuses on moving and storing data, doesn’t take into account the overall health of data. Therefore, in trying to manage data, all companies are creating digital landfills of corporate information. This has to change. Our vision of data health is the future because it recognizes the fundamental standards that are critical for corporate survival.” Data health is Talend’s vision for a holistic system of preventative measures, effective treatments, and a supportive culture to actively manage the well-being of corporate information. It is designed to allow companies to answer basic questions about their data that remain challenging for many to address – where it resides, who has access to it, whether it’s accurate, and how much it’s worth. Data health would help organisations understand and communicate — in a quantifiable way — the reliability, risk, and return of this extremely critical business asset. Talend’s data health survey also revealed:22% of executives do not think that their company’s investments in data management is worth it (13% of APAC respondents).More than a third of executives report that there are no standards for data quality at their company (40% of APAC respondents).In an ideal world, 73% of executives would like to make the majority of their decisions based on data (75% of APAC respondents).Decreasing cost of operations is only a corporate objective for 49% of executives (40% of APAC respondents), far behind monitoring performance for 68% of executives (71% of APAC respondents), improving customer service for 67% of executives (76% of APAC respondents), and increasing revenue for 59% of executives (53% of APAC respondents).To make data the critical asset in the entire organisation, the challenges that executives face are both technical and human:50% to ensure data quality (56% of APAC respondents).39% to make data available to the right person (47% of APAC respondents).36% to have enough skilled resources (52% of APAC respondents).36% to meet compliance and security requirements (49% of APAC respondents).95% of executives agree there should be cross-industry standard metrics to assess the quality of all enterprise data (97% of APAC respondents).Among the executives surveyed, the sales and marketing teams are the least data-driven departments:Nearly half of sales and marketing executives (48%) make the majority of their decisions without data.The finance department follows closely with 44% of finance executives reporting that they make the majority of their decisions without relying on data. Customers report that a focus on data health is having a positive aspect on their business. “Without access to quality data on time, we could have never achieved the scale of analytics we are currently in,” says Ranadip Dutta, solution architect manager, Lenovo. “We now have flexibility along with scalability.” Read the full survey report to discover the differences in how people who produce and deliver data feel about working with data, versus those who consume it.

About the Survey From March 24th to April 8th, 2021, Talend led a survey via Qualtrics of 529 global executives (57% North America, 26% Asia-Pacific, 17% Europe) — with titles ranging from director to the C-suite — from medium and large companies making more than US $10 million in annual revenue to assess their ability to make data-driven decisions.

ENDS Talend to be Acquired by Thoma Bravo in a $2.4 Billion Transaction 2021-03-11T00:43:22Z talend-to-be-acquired-by-thoma-bravo-in-a-2-4-billion-transaction SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., REDWOOD CITY, Calif., and SURESNES, France – March 10, 2021 – Talend (NASDAQ: TLND) (“Talend” or “the Company”), a leader in data integration and data integrity, today announced that it has entered into a memorandum of understanding with Thoma Bravo, a leading private equity investment firm focused on the software and technology-enabled services sectors, under which Thoma Bravo intends to commence a tender offer to acquire all of the outstanding ordinary shares and American Depositary Shares (“ADSs”) of Talend, for $66.00 per ordinary share and ADS (each ADS representing one ordinary share) in cash. The offer, which values Talend at approximately US $2.4 billion, represents a premium of approximately 29% to Talend’s closing price on March 9 and an 81% premium to the volume weighted average price over the last twelve months. The Talend Board of Directors unanimously approved the memorandum of understanding. Subject to and upon completion of the transaction, Talend would become a private company and continue investing in its cloud transition as well as products and solutions that serve the evolving data needs of its customers. “We are pleased to move forward with Thoma Bravo, as the transaction will deliver compelling and certain cash value to Talend shareholders and significant strategic, long-term benefits for our customers, employees, and other stakeholders,” said Steve Singh, Chairman of the Board of Talend. “Our Board is focused on driving shareholder value and has periodically evaluated potential transaction alternatives in the context of our standalone plan over the past several years. With the successful advancement of our transformation effort led by our CEO over the past year, the Talend Board and management team conducted a targeted process with potential financial and strategic parties to determine the best path forward for the Company. We believe the transaction with Thoma Bravo validates the Talend team’s success in building a data market leader.” “The last twelve months have underscored the importance of digital transformation and the unique and vital role Talend plays in ensuring enterprises can trust the data fueling their business,” said Christal Bemont, Chief Executive Officer of Talend. “I am pleased with how the team has executed through the challenges of 2020 and successfully delivered on the strategic initiatives and targets we laid out a year ago. As we look forward, the transaction with Thoma Bravo – a firm with a successful track record of helping the companies it acquires achieve long-term, sustainable growth – will provide Talend with additional capital, resources, and expertise to execute against our mission and leverage a large market opportunity to help all organisations become data-driven. I want to thank the Talend team for their dedication to our company and customers; it is the incredible women and men of Talend who have helped build a leading platform and made this exciting transaction possible.” “We are thrilled to partner with the management team at Talend to continue to build upon their leadership position in the cloud data integration market,” said Seth Boro, a Managing Partner at Thoma Bravo. “We are confident we can apply our experiences working with market-leading software companies to accelerate Talend’s growth and complete its transition to the cloud.” “Data has become critical to every facet of the world, and Talend’s data fabric empowers organisations to operationalise their data,” said Chip Virnig, a Partner at Thoma Bravo. “Talend has built the leading cloud-native orchestration platform that helps organisations bring together all their data, wherever it may sit, to solve their most complex problems.” Transaction Details Under the terms of the binding memorandum of understanding, Thoma Bravo will initiate a cash tender offer of $66.00 (approximately €55.54) per Talend ordinary share and ADS, subject to certain conditions. This offer values Talend at approximately US $2.4 billion or approximately €2.1 billion, including net debt. The agreement includes a 30-day “go-shop” period expiring on April 10, 2021, which permits Talend’s Board and advisors to solicit alternative acquisition proposals. Talend has the right to terminate the memorandum of understanding to enter into a superior proposal subject to certain terms and conditions of the memorandum of understanding. There can be no assurance that this “go-shop” will result in a superior proposal, and Talend does not intend to disclose developments with respect to the solicitation process unless and until it determines such disclosure is appropriate or is otherwise required. In the event that Talend’s Board recommends the tender offer to the holders of ordinary shares and ADSs upon completion of the appropriate works council consultations, Thoma Bravo will commence the tender offer thereafter. The closing of the transaction is subject to the valid tender pursuant to the tender offer of ordinary shares and ADSs of Talend representing – together with ordinary shares and ADSs of Talend then beneficially owned by Thoma Bravo, if any – at least 80% of the outstanding ordinary shares and ADSs, receipt of customary transactional regulatory approvals (including French foreign investment control procedure) and other customary closing conditions. In addition, in case of said recommendation, Talend will convene an ordinary and extraordinary general meeting of the shareholders to vote on a transaction that would result in the Company structurally, but not operationally, redomiciling in the Netherlands. Following the closing of the tender offer and completion of said transaction, any ordinary shares or ADSs not tendered would be ultimately redeemed for a price equal to the price per ordinary share and ADS as paid in the tender offer. In connection with these transactions, Talend’s existing French activities, including assets, liabilities and employees, would be first transferred to a new wholly-owned French subsidiary. The tender offer is currently expected to close in the third quarter of 2021 and the redomiciling and related transactions are currently expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2021. Talend will become a privately held company and Talend's ADSs will no longer be listed on any public market, assuming the completion of the tender offer and the redomiciling and related transactions. Transaction Terms The tender offer will be implemented in accordance with the terms and conditions of the binding memorandum of understanding between Talend and Thoma Bravo. In addition to the offer terms, the memorandum of understanding contains customary representations, warranties and undertakings by Talend and Thoma Bravo. The parties have further agreed on certain expense reimbursement and termination fees payable by Talend to Thoma Bravo under certain circumstances, including if the Talend Board determines not to issue a positive recommendation following completion of the appropriate works council consultations, subsequently changes or withdraws its recommendation, or terminates to accept a superior proposal. Advisors Qatalyst Partners is serving as financial advisor to Talend and Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati, P.C. and Gide Loyrette Nouel A.A.R.P.I. are serving as legal counsel. Kirkland & Ellis, LLP is serving as legal counsel to Thoma Bravo. About TalendTalend (NASDAQ: TLND), a leader in data integration and data integrity, is changing the way the world makes decisions.

The new release will focus on advanced capabilities within the Talend Trust Score™, which instantly assesses the reliability of an organisation’s data. With this update, Talend will provide the industry’s first measure of data health that intelligently diagnoses and resolves data integrity issues in multi-cloud, hybrid and on-premise environments. Talend Trust Score will help companies confidently use their data to make decisions quickly that drive revenue, innovate faster, and reduce cost and risk.

As part of Talend Data Fabric, advancements in the Talend Trust Score include: Trust any data at first glance: With Talend Trust Score, datasets are all automatically indexed with a crawler to give organisations a complete picture of their data health before they start using it. Data can be assessed in multi-cloud, on prem, and hybrid environments, including cloud data warehouse and data lakes offerings from industry leading companies. Explainable trust and resolution: The Trust Score exposes the dimensions used to calculate data trust, allowing organisations to understand how data was measured. These dimensions include validity, popularity, completeness, discoverability, and usage. Talend Data Fabric also automatically resolves data problems by recommending the appropriate transformations using semantic awareness. Incorporation of artificial intelligence (AI) and human expertise: Talend Trust Score blends the best of advanced AI and human expertise to build context around data and give a complete picture of data health. “Without question, data trust is a must when it comes to making decisions that directly impact employee well-being and overall safety,” said Charles Link, Director of Data and Analytics, Covanta. “We manage a real-time data supply chain from over 40 facilities and having automated, reliable data is essential to our day to day operations.

Now more than ever, having trustworthy data is critical to success.
