UNOS wins international technology award

At its annual Connect conference, held this year on Nov. 17 in Paris, Talend selected UNOS for its highest level of recognition—a grand prize in its Data Masters awards.

Talend, a global leader in cloud and big-data integration software, created the awards to recognize unique and innovative ways companies are using data to transform their businesses.

UNOS was recognized for reducing the time required for data-integration tasks from 18 hours to three or four. The reduction was the result of UNOS’ “ROO report,” which allows transplant centers nationwide to have more up-to-date insight on organs transplanted over the last three months, which can lead to better decision- making—and more saved lives. In fact, Talend at UNOS is ushering in a new era of data integration, product delivery and modernization and the ROO report is just the first example.

Accepting the award on behalf of UNOS was IT’s lead architect/developer Talend data integration specialist Jamie Sutphin. Fluent in French, he also was invited to give a talk at the conference on the changes Talend is making at UNOS.

Nineteen Data Masters awards were given, and UNOS was one of only four grand prize winners.
