Talend has expanded its Asia Pacific (APAC) presence with cloud data infrastructure in Australia, with the intention of better serving customer growth in the region.
Talend states its new cloud data infrastructure will provide Australian enterprises with confidence and clarity into their data while addressing regional data sovereignty, privacy, residency, and performance requirements.
The Sydney-based cloud infrastructure, operated on Amazon Web Services (AWS), will be operational to host customers in July 2021.
As industry and government regulations evolve, Talend is focused on helping customers maintain flexibility to keep up with the changes, the company states.
With a cloud data infrastructure deployed independently in Australia, Talend states it can maintain standards regarding data residency, security, data sovereignty, and operational best practices.
Talend Data Fabric provides a single platform that delivers complete, clean, and uncompromised data in real-time, the company states.
As more data is ingested and analysed, Talend is looking to help companies understand, in a quantifiable way, the overall reliability, risk, and return of their data.
Talend senior vice president and general manager APAC Stu Garrow says, "Every business is now in the data business. In support of Talend's growing market, I'm delighted to announce the addition of new cloud data infrastructure in Australia.
"As strategic partners to our customers, it's important that we offer insight on holistic, big-picture data solutions that solve business problems and give clarity and confidence in their data.
"I'm excited to see Talend's continued growth and this significant investment to create a framework designed for data health solutions of our customers' success."
According to Gartner, the events of last year allowed CIOs to overcome any reluctance of moving mission critical workloads from on-premises to the cloud.
Gartner forecasted in other research that Australian Public Cloud spending would reach US$7.3 billion by the end of 2021, increasing 18.4% from last year, with cloud application services (SaaS) spending rising by 16.9%.
Deloitte Australia partner for analytics and cognitive, Thierry Lotrian, echoes these findings.
He says, "Our clients are increasingly adopting cloud capabilities to help improve customer service, drive innovation, or just to keep up with competition. Cloud gives our clients the power to transform and reinvent their business.
"It is fantastic to have technology organisations like Talend investing in the local Australian market when it comes to cloud infrastructure enabling Australian businesses and government alike to ride the next wave of technology driven innovation.
"Having the data center in Australia will play a critical role in complying with the data sovereignty requirements that many of our clients have in Australia."
