Bossie 2010 winner: Talend

Talend is a suite of open source data integration tools capable of scaling from small file migrations to large data warehousing projects. It has strong tools for ETL, business and job modeling, and impact analysis, as well as a fleet of wizards that minimize complexity. This year Talend 4 raised the bar with the addition of master data management tools and native support for the Apache Hadoop Distributed File System, laying the groundwork for large-scale, "big data" analysis. Unlocking all of the enterprise-grade goodies requires a commercial subscription license, but the free open source Talend Open Studio, Talend Open Profiler, and Talend MDM go well beyond bare bones.
