Talend CEO Mike Tuchen is hoping to have the next successful tech IPO on Friday
On Friday, big-data startup #Talend will launch itself as a public company in this anemic year for tech IPOs, and many other tech companies will be watching how investors react. Talend offers a service that helps a company take the data it stores in all sorts of apps and clouds, and cleans it up so that it can be used by popular big data software like #Hadoop and #Spark. Talend was born a French company but its current headquarters are in Redwood City, California. Its CEO, Mike Tuchen, joined in 2013. He was previously CEO of security company Rapid7 during its startup growth years, but left before its successful IPO in 2015. He cut his teeth at #Microsoft.
