#HandsOnTalend – Integration Cloud – Your first Project

Previously, I showed you around Talend Integration Cloud, and Talend Studio for Cloud. Now is where the work actually begins!
The purpose of any data integration flow is to execute a series of actions into a common objective/goal. Flow is referred to as a ‘Job’. Jobs are created solely within Talend Studio for Cloud, but first, you need to make sure you have your workspace in order.

Mapping Flight-paths with Tableau

Recently I had been asked to develop some example dashboards for an Airline and this involved quite some research on how best to do this. The first thought that came to my head was “I want a map showing the Airline routes!”

I learned quite a bit and now want to show you how easily this can be done.

My key takeaways from the Cloud Analytics World Tour

Cloud Analytics is an awesome subject to approach. Gartner says most enterprises will be almost fully cloud engaged by 2020, this seems to be something which other Research organisations are also echoing. Given the rapid progression of cloud technologies and availability of these technologies, I am very much in the belief that Cloud definitely is the was forward.

Tableau is positioned as a leader for the sixth time based on ability to execute and completeness of vision.  Tableau’s mission is to help people see and understand data.

Having a simple, yet complete, Cloud-based Customer Data Warehouse (CDW) is key to any organization and the ability to manage, integrate and understand the collected Data is of paramount importance.
