LOS ALTOS, Calif. & SAN MATEO, Calif. -- June 24, 2013

Talend, a global open source software leader, and Neo Technology, creators of
Neo4j, the world’s leading graph database, today announced a partnership to
advance the deployment and integration of NoSQL graph databases to enterprise
environments. As part of the agreement, Talend has added a new connector for
Neo4j in its integration solutions, Talend Platform for Big Data and Talend
Open Studio for Big Data, enabling users to easily connect and analyze data
from disparate systems to help drive and improve business performance.

As data explodes in volume and complexity, many systems have difficulty
handling sophisticated queries while achieving high performance results. Neo4j
is specifically designed to overcome the challenges that organizations face
when attempting to manage connected data with traditional databases. As a
high-performance graph database, Neo4j is transactional, durable, and scales
to meet the demands of complex data.

“Neo4j’s unique approach to solving some of the most critical data challenges
has been proven across many thousands of successful deployments, including
over 25 of the Global 2000,” said Philip Rathle, Senior Director of Products
for Neo Technology. “With Neo4j now readily accessible to users of Talend’s
advanced integration platform, developers can more quickly build and maintain
big data applications and move data between systems.”

Built on Talend’s award-winning open source integration technology, Talend
Open Studio for Big Data is a powerful and versatile open source solution for
big data integration that natively supports Apache Hadoop, including
connectors for Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS), HCatalog, Hive, Oozie,
Pig, Sqoop, Cassandra, HBase, MongoDB and Couchbase – in addition to more than
450 other connectors included natively in the product. The integration of the
Neo4j database with Talend’s Big Data solutions enables customers to use these
new connectors to migrate and synchronize data between Neo4j and all other
data stores and systems.

“By partnering with Neo Technology, the creators of the world’s leading graph
database, Talend is once again advancing our technology and market
leadership,” said Fabrice Bonan, Co-Founder and Chief Technical Officer,
Talend. “Talend is the only integration provider to offer such a broad set of
connectors, especially those supporting the big data ecosystem. Neo4j
connectors were developed by community members who contributed them to the
community, which is a testament to the power of the open source ecosystem for
solving complex integration issues and multiplying the reach of our solution.”

Talend’s vibrant ecosystem of users and partners often provide new
community-developed connectors that are added to the Talend products in
addition to the connectors included natively. The Neo4j connectors were
developed by engineers of Talend’s partner Zenika, a systems integrator
specializing in NoSQL and open source platforms. By adding them to the main
distribution, Talend commits to the support and maintenance of these
connectors on an ongoing basis.

“Zenika is proud to have contributed Neo4j connectors to the Talend
community,” said Pierre Queinnec, Chief Technical Officer of Zenika. “More and
more of our clients use NoSQL databases, and in particular the Neo4j graph
database. The integration of Neo4j with Talend's solutions enables our clients
to dramaticallyincreasetheir return on investment by using Talend's proven
technology to load, transform and extract their graph data.”
