Only Talend 5.5 allows developers to generate high performance Hadoop code without needing to be an expert in MapReduce or Pig

This unlocks a large pool of development resources that can now contribute to big data projects. In addition, Talend is staying on the cutting edge of new developments in Hadoop that allow big data analytics projects to power real-time customer interactions.

When you think of the centuries it took to go from a movable type press to modern word processing and near professional printing/binding capabilities, the enabling of users to perform data processing/integration, is nothing short of amazing.
Data scientists need not fear DYI data processing/integration any more than your local bar association fears “How to Avoid Probate” books on the news stand.
I don’t doubt people will be able to get some answer out of data crunching software but did they get a useful answer? Or an answer sufficient to set company policy? Or an answer that will increase their bottom line?
Encourage the use of open source software. Non-clients who use it poorly will fail. Make sure they can’t say the same about your clients.
BTW, the webinar appears to be scheduled for thirty (30) minutes. Thirty minutes on Talend 5.5? You will be better off spending that thirty minutes with Talend 5.5.
