Data integration and data governance firm Talend has announced it has successfully achieved the Google Cloud Ready - BigQuery Designation.

Talend is one of a select group of launch partners identified to participate in the new designation program. By earning this designation, Talend has proven that its integration and governance solutions have met a core set of functional and interoperability requirements when integrating with BigQuery, the highly scalable multi-cloud data warehouse.

Through this advanced support, Google Cloud customers using BigQuery can rely on Talend to ensure everyone can access the data they need effortlessly, understand it, and use it with confidence without exposing the business to risk.

Google Cloud Ready - BigQuery is a partner integration validation program that intends to increase customer confidence in partner integrations into BigQuery. As part of this initiative, Google Cloud engineering teams validate partner integrations into BigQuery in a three-phase process: Run a series of data integration tests and compare results against benchmarks; work closely with partners to fill any gaps; and refine documentation for mutual customers. Both Talend Data Fabric and Stitch received Google Cloud Ready - BigQuery Designations.

"Data migration, integration, and governance are increasingly critical as businesses deploy modern data stacks that span multiple platforms and partners," says Manvinder Singh, director, partnerships at Google Cloud.

"Talend's Google Cloud Ready - BigQuery designation is an indication that their connectors and integrations for BigQuery can be effectively and quickly deployed, and will deliver exceptional experiences for customers as they bring together BigQuery and partner platforms to power their digital transformations," he says.

Businesses use Talend solutions to ensure their enterprise Google Cloud data is complete, clean, uncompromised, and readily available to everyone who needs it throughout an organisation. Talend provides native connectivity to numerous Google Cloud services such as Google Cloud Storage, Google BigQuery, and Google Dataproc.

In addition to a unique combination of data integration and governance capabilities, Talend offers the Talend Trust Score, which can automatically crawl Google Big Query and provide a health assessment of data by intelligently diagnosing and resolving data integrity issues.

"Having a cloud data environment that is trusted and healthy is essential for businesses to make mission critical decisions and drive desired outcomes," says Rolf Heimes, global head of business development at Talend.

"Talend is dedicated to serve as a strategic business partner with Google Cloud and help our customers achieve their technology goals by leveraging the breadth of services and pace of innovation that Google provides," he says.

"We are thrilled to receive BigQuery Designation."
