New Release of Talend Trust Score Enables Data Teams to Establish a Foundation for Data Health

Talend | May 09, 2022

Talend
Talend, a global leader in data integration and management, announced today at Gartner Data & Analytics Summit in London, the latest version of Talend Data Fabric. In its Spring '22 announcement, Talend will add advanced capabilities to Talend Trust Score™, including aggregation and historical views into the health of any dataset. These new features will help businesses analyze combined data quality metrics to evaluate data trust at macro and micro levels, including across all datasets, groups of datasets, or individual datasets.

According to a survey taken of global executives in 2021, 78% say they face challenges in using their data, and more than a third say they simply aren't using it to make decisions. In fact, Gartner recently reported that inconsistent business outcomes due to unreliable data and poor data quality are responsible for an average of $12.8M per year in losses for organizations.

As the first advanced trust score available in the industry, Talend Trust Score helps businesses assess the quality of their datasets. Talend Trust Score intelligently evaluates and scores data in Talend customer environments by using crawlers that automatically scan datasets in on-premises and cloud data warehouses such as Snowflake, AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google.  Businesses can also identify quality issues with incoming data from third-party systems/source systems and remedy them immediately, before there is a negative impact.

Talend's Spring '22 enables businesses to see trends and measure data trust over time and identify data drift issues to ensure reliable information is used to drive optimal business outcomes. New features include:

Talend Trust Score by Groups provides more targeted insights into the health of data assets instantly with trust score grouping via metadata. Now users can filter any group of datasets, or individual datasets, and see an aggregate trust score that can serve as an enhanced "single-pane-of-glass" view into data health. This provides a fully tailored view of datasets that are relevant to each user, for an at-a-glance view of actionable data quality metrics.

Talend Trust Score Trending provides a temporal view of the health of datasets. Customers can now see trends and measure the effectiveness of data programs on an ongoing basis and surface issues that are not visible with snapshots of quality, such as data drift. Customers may scan datasets at intervals such as daily, weekly, and hourly, providing a view into dataset quality to help provide a more accurate assessment at any given time.

In addition to Talend Trust Score updates, Spring '22 accelerates productivity with collaborative workflows that can serve as a conduit between users at different technical levels. Talend expands its centralized repository with Data Quality Rules in Talend Studio, a step to ensure these simple-to-configure rules are available for reuse across the Talend ecosystem, on any data, no matter its location or format.

"Talend continues to raise the bar on innovation with our customers in mind. Our advancements to Talend Trust Score will help businesses understand the ongoing quality of their data and feel confident in the decisions they are making. This new product release is another step toward helping our customers leverage healthy data to achieve powerful business outcomes."

Jamie Fiorda, vice president, product marketing, Talend

Eccovia Launches ClientInsight, an AI-Powered Data Warehouse to Improve Social Service Delivery

Eccovia | July 26, 2022

Eccovia, a leading provider of cloud-based SaaS solutions for the health and human services sector, announces the release of an unprecedented data warehouse and community-analytics platform, ClientInsight. ClientInsight is hosted in Microsoft Azure and is a premier solution for data quality, performance, and actionable insights. Since the COVID-19 pandemic began, our nation’s most vulnerable populations have faced adverse outcomes to their social determinants of health. In addition to a new pathogen in the public, domestic violence increased, as did homelessness. Data availability became a national topic of conversation as COVID-19 case counts rose, and there was never a greater need for increased access to timely data in the realm of social services. We now know the result of data that is incomplete, siloed, or “stale.” Data has to be available when needed, and the inequities in data availability were highlighted by the pandemic, as were the needs to address systemic issues in care coordination. With the launch of ClientInsight, social-services dashboards and data from across communities can integrate into a single source of truth, leading to a more holistic approach to addressing the needs of vulnerable populations, true coordinated entry, and effective care coordination. ”ClientInsight is really the first-ever platform that will be able to help tie organizational data, collected every single day, to outcomes and progress that providers hope and expect to see. This is a true gamechanger that will allow community providers to set and meet more ambitious goals in their respective fights to end society’s most pressing issues.” CEO, Carl Champagne Data-privacy laws require secure access points to client data, yet networks that serve multiple populations must be able to share this data between organizations for care coordination. ClientInsight closes the gap between data privacy and care coordination, allowing providers to serve their clients' needs with a more knowledgeable, integrated level of care. About Eccovia Eccovia provides industry-leading software platforms for case management and community care coordination for state agencies, community-based providers, and other human-service entities. The platforms help caseworkers and care providers collaborate across physical, behavioral, economic, and social determining factors that impact individual and community health outcomes.

Alpha Serve | June 07, 2022

Alpha Serve has created the Power BI Connector to help organizations add their ServiceNow information as a data source to Power BI and be able to use it for their specific business reporting and analytics needs. Microsoft Power BI is a powerful data visualization tool that allows companies to accelerate the integration of all the needed data sources for further analysis and reporting. And the insights received with the tool help to develop and implement smart business decisions. ServiceNow, in its turn, is a comprehensive cloud platform that helps companies manage digital workflows for their business operations. It combines lots of solutions, including those for automation, analysis, resource management, etc., and allows connecting people, functions, and systems across the organization. Typically, to connect these two tools, teams use Rest API or CSV files, but the procedure may require additional resources and coding skills. And the solution has a lot of limitations, in particular, limited data amount. Power BI Connector is the first application of its kind on the ServiceNow Store allowing direct Power BI ServiceNow integration. The app allows users to export ServiceNow data to Power BI for further processing as well as to add ServiceNow to other data sources with Power Query for complex reporting. Power BI Connector has advanced filtering options for more precise and relevant information selection and ensures secure data sharing by setting permissions and access. Professional tech support is also available to help users get the most out of the tool. It will be especially useful for data analysts and agile teams that need consolidated reporting across all business functions.

We have noticed that IT companies use dozens of products in their everyday routine to manage the workflow and are continuously looking for applications connecting all their tools to maintain effective production and optimize company processes. That's why we decided to create a new application which has no analogs in the ServiceNow Store." Anna Odrynska, the Alpha Serve's Chief Strategy Officer Alpha Serve is a leading software development company with the main focus on product integrations and BI connectors. It is a reliable contractor of IT enterprises and a ServiceNow Technology Partner. The company's main goal is to transform technological expertise into valuable solutions with proven scalability, performance, and high-level data security that help businesses to improve customer satisfaction and effectiveness.
