Use PDF Bash Tools when your BI tooling like Talend is not enough

Use PDF Bash Tools for quick pdf manipulation from command line. Ghostscript and xpdf, both open source are a great combination to get the most difficult PDF transformations done.

If your BI Framework / Tooling does not have good solutions for processing pdf files ( like it is the case of Talend ) then you can leverage your old friend, the shell and in specific bash. Simple and effective.
