Talend to expand footprint in Bengaluru

 Talend, a Nasdaq listed company in the cloud and big data integration solutions, is expanding its Bengaluru presence to focus on Asia Pacific region business, including India opportunities.

In an interaction with DH, Talend Chief Executive Officer Mike Tuchen said APAC is the fastest growing market for the company and is expected to double revenues this calendar year.

“The new office, which will be one of the company’s largest in APAC, will help Talend deepen its collaboration with partners and accelerate training of their associates on Talend solutions. Based on current commitments from leading SIs (System Integrators) Talend expects the number of consultants trained in 2017 to more than triple 2016 totals,” said Tuchen.

Growth in the number of trained Talend consultants will help SIs address their increasing customer demand for skilled big data and cloud resources to support their digital transformation. “From new sales perspectives, we are excited with the market opportunity and expect it to grow it to 20% in the next few years,” he said.

 The company registered a total revenue of $106 million for 2016, registering a growth of over 100% quarter on quarter. “Our Big Data and cloud business grew 100% for the last three years. Our main target is building our ecosystem around the globe,” he said.

As part of the initiative, the company’s system integrators have committed thousands of their consultants for training on Talend solutions. “We will continue to ramp our support, service and customer success teams. Talend has currently over 1,500 customers globally,” said Tuchen.

The new facilities house members of Talend’s customer success team, including professional services, who will provide support and training to the surrounding regions and to the many global Talend customers and SIs that have major development hubs or Centres of Excellence in India.

Talend’s India team also includes sales representatives who will help meet the growing opportunity for Talend solutions in the region spurred by the aggressive move by the public and private companies towards digitalisation.

Talend has 16 employees now and would reach 30 by the end of this year. “We will double the headcount next year in India. By the end of the year, we would have 200 employees across Asia. At present, we are not setting up R&D centre in India. Globally, about 250 employees are part of our R&D team,” he said.
