Informatica platform cuts across data integration hurdles

Cloud computing intricacies to spawn more data fragmentation

Aware of the value of relevant and timely data in business processes, data integration software provider Informatica has recently released its unified and open data integration infrastructure platform, Informatica 9.

With user-friendly features such as browser-based analyst tools and auto-generation of implementation details, Informatica 9 was developed to facilitate the work among the business units needing the relevant data and IT.

"Informatica 9 enables organisations to gain the most business value from their information assets," said Sohaib Abbasi, chairman and CEO, Informatica. "With unique capabilities for business-IT collaboration, pervasive data quality and service-oriented architecture (SOA)-based data services, Informatica 9 helps deliver the most relevant, trustworthy and timely data."

Informatica 9 automates every step of the data integration lifecycle while maintaining the quality of data. Prior to Informatica 9, data quality was an issue that can be a misery to the IT department.

As a comprehensive platform, Informatica 9 also features B2B data exchange, application information lifecycle management, complex event processing and cloud data integration.


Because data relevance is a crucial issue that needs to be addressed, Informatica 9 provides browser-based analyst tools that can aid users in specifying business requirements.

To ensure that loss of details in the translation from requirements to actual implementation becomes negligible, Informatica 9 is capable of automatic generation of implementation details from business specifications.

For business analysts and IT developers to communicate and share their work with each other, Informatica 9 uses to its advantage a metadata repository of all specification and implementation artifacts.

The demand for comprehensive support continues to hound all solutions providers. For this reason, Informatica 9 has integrated the support for nearly all data and related purposes.

The presence of its unified role-based tools enables stakeholders to handle data quality requirements through data quality scorecards, simple analyst tools and productive developer tools.


To save on time, the information catalog services of Informatica 9 strengthen user's capability to quickly find relevant data. Data discovery is further hastened using logical data objects that simplify data representation.

When it comes to data delivery, innovative multi-modal data provisioning services makes possible the transfer of data in various formats and in different protocols without additional IT development work.

"Combining data quality and data integration into a single platform and the delivery of multi-modal data provisioning, all with a single-user interface ensures that customers will be able to reduce risk and minimise costs, ultimately improving their business agility," said Carl Olofson, research vice president at IDC. "That's the message of Informatica 9, and it is setting the course that the industry must follow."

Informatica 9 can also help companies pursue the reduction of systems administration costs with its policy-based data services governance to centrally manage data rules only once.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
