Sage and Talend Form Partnership to Boost Sage ERP X3 Interoperability Performances

Sage, a business management software provider and Talend, the worldwide leader in open source integration solutions, today announced the completion of a partnership, which will integrate Talend’s integration technologies with Sage ERP X3, Sage plc’s global ERP solution aimed at medium sized companies. Thanks to this global partnership, Sage ERP X3 customers will benefit from significant productivity gains generated by the opening of their IT systems and the ability to automate massive data exchange.

This partnership follows the first OEM agreement that was signed back in 2007, which simplified information exchange between Sage CRM and third party applications. Having worked together for several years and valuing each other’s company culture, both firms have decided to extend their partnership to Sage ERP X3 globally.

The Sage ERP X3 solution leverages Talend’s integration tools to enrich its integration capability. This integration rests on Sage ERP X3’s web services API. In addition, Sage and Talend are working jointly on an additional component to be released in the near future that will leverage SData2, the communications protocol defined by Sage at a global level and which is based on international industry protocols (http, ATOM). SData allows the integration of products between Sage products as well as any third party solutions in real time and over the Internet. With the Sage ERP X3 connector, users will benefit from an immediate opening of their IT systems as well as important productivity gains arising from the faster exchanges (migration, extraction and synchronisation). The Sage ERP X3 connector will now be included as standard in all editions of Talend’s integration software, therefore Sage ERP X3 clients will no longer need to develop specific integration interfaces and will benefit from seamless integration with third party applications. Because Talend Open Studio is integrated with Sage ERP X3, it means customers’ IT budgets will not be impacted by traditional integration costs associated with proprietary systems.

Those companies who wish to adopt Sage ERP X3 will see their migration projects greatly simplified. Apart from the technology upgrade, Sage ERP X3 users will naturally benefit, without any additional costs, from the expertise that Talend provides as a worldwide leader in open source software, offering a breadth of middleware solutions that address both data management and application integration needs.

Emmanuel Obadia, senior vice president of enterprise products, Sage ERP X3: “In many respects, the strategic approach of our two companies is the same: customer choice, cost effectiveness, open information systems, greater interoperability and a global dimension. Talend has proved that in just four years, it can provide high performance technology for not only a competitive cost for mid sized businesses but also with a simple and interoperable implementation. We are happy to cement our relationship today in order to provide our clients with the open source flexibility that Talend provides.”

François Méro, vice president of global sales at Talend, “We are proud today to forge an alliance with Sage, one of the main publishers of business management software. Like Talend, Sage has the ambition open up access to its business management software, in order to provide all the companies, whatever their size, an alternative choice to proprietary software.”
