Talend’s contribution in scientific domains

28 02 2008

As an open source software, Talend Open Studio (now in version 2.3.1) can help you to integrate your scientific data. Here is an example at the University for Health Sciences, Medical Informatics and Technology (UMIT) in Austria.

Moreover, it is not said in the article, but Talend Open Studio is able to convert your data in the Weka format if you need to do some data mining. The components are named tFileInputARFF and tFileOutputARFF.

They allow you to import (export) data from (into) any supported storage system into (from) a file in ARFF (Attribute-Relation File Format). The documentation for these components will come soon. If you need help, don’t hesitate to ask questions on the forum or to look at the documentation for Talend Opend Studio.
