Hi @Sherrine Green Thompson

Joe gave a great explanation of NiFi vs Streamset here : https://stackoverflow.com/questions/36899612/difference-between-apache-nifi-and-streamsets

I don't think NiFi and Talend share the same playground. NiFi is for flow management. Talend is ETL. Even if you can do transformation in NiFi it's not the same thing as Talend. For instance, NiFi can not join two tables where Talend can not deal with unstructured data. There are some common scenarios but conceptually they answer different needs.

I hope this help clarifying the positioning

Hello @sherrine 

 

As mentioned by a couple of other users as well, NiFi operates in a different playground and comes with a few limitations. Below I have made a comparison between Streamsets and Talend. However, some other tools which you can also prefer include Fivetran, Sprinkle Data and Matillion.
