Open Source Data Management Tools

During the keynote address, a variety of open source data management tools were, to some, introduced.  Here are the easy links to those tools.

Data Cleaner:

“DataCleaner is an Open Source application for analyzing, profiling, transforming and cleansing data. These activities help you administer and monitor your data quality. High quality data is key to make data useful and applicable to any modern business.” –  Data Cleaner


“Talend offers a breadth of open source middleware solutions that address data integration, data management and application integration needs in businesses” – Talend

Note:  John Talburt mentioned Oyster and Attacama – Oyster downloads were only PDFs, didn’t know if any of you would find any off them usefull, if you want the links let me know.  Attacama on the other hand is a googlers’ nightmare. When I find it, I will let ya all know.

Another note:  The top links are links to the download pages, bottom links are pages where I found the blurbs
