Information systems business becoming increasingly complex. They are composed of different systems that need to communicate among themselves. Ask a developer to code routines for data integration is no longer a viable option so the rules change often and codes are not robust enough as those offered by the data integration tools. Talend (one of the leading open source integration) provides a data integration tool called Talend Open Source for data integration.
There are few books on data integration. However Talend made enough effort and provided enough documentation on its products. This book far from being a copy an paste of official documentation addresses the problem from a different angle. The official documentation is a guide to the components while this book is more oriented use cases. This book is a step by step guide you can read from top to bottom if you are a beginner or go to specific chapters.
