To provide an insight into how Newcastle University are using Talend, we are in the process of creating a series of narrated videos. The first of these is now available.

Module Provisioning into Grouper

Newcastle University uses Internet2's Grouper Group Management Toolkit to create and manage institutional groups. These represent, for example, individuals in a particular faculty, school or module.

Data must be loaded into Grouper from institutional data sources to enable it to reflect the University structure. Talend has enabled this process to be significantly improved.

The video demonstrates job creation using Talend to provision module information into Grouper. It gives an overview of key Talend components, explains how to use them to create a job, and shows the output of the job.

For ease of viewing, it has been split into a number of parts:
