Talend Opens Nomination Period for Data Masters Awards

Finalists will be chosen from more than 1,300 Talend global customers, representing large enterprises and private firms across major industries including banking and insurance, consumer goods, healthcare, manufacturing and retail. Last year’s award recipients included Citi, GE Healthcare, Hess and Travis Perkins.

Talend management will collaborate to select the winners from a pool of written proposals based on the following criteria:

  • Creativity and innovative use of solutions
  • Scope and complexity of implementation
  • Pioneering application of Big Data
  • Business transformation and quantifiable business value achieved

Winners will be announced during Talend Connect, the company’s annual customer and partner conference, taking place in Paris on November 17, 2016. Award winners will not only receive widespread recognition as an innovator in their field, but also collect a recognition plaque, and a $1,500 donation will be made in their name to a charity of their choice.

“Every path to realizing the full business value of data is different for each company, which is what makes our Data Masters program so exciting,” said Ashley Stirrup, CMO, Talend. “We look forward to uncovering the many diverse and innovative ways our customers are redefining how to become truly data-driven and celebrating their outstanding work.”
