Informatica Enables New Analytics Stack to Power Today’s Data-Driven Businesses

Redwood City, Calif., Sept. 20, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Driven by trends in cloud, big data and self-service analytics powered by visualization, data lakes and cloud data warehousing, a new analytics stack is emerging that promises transparent access to vital data across all sources, formats and platforms for every business user. This new stack is also enabling faster and easier delivery of ready-for-use information that business users demand. It does not matter what the source or shape of the data that is coming into this new stack is because it is able to seamlessly ingest structured, unstructured and semi-structured sources.

At key industry events throughout the fall, Informatica®, the world’s No. 1 provider of data management solutions, will roll out a series of new and innovative data management capabilities that brings unprecedented analytic power to business users by further enabling this new cloud analytics stack.

Data integration is being disrupted by the nexus of several innovations, including cloud integration-platform-as-a-service (iPaaS), Hadoop and the emergence of business focused data lakes. Predictive analytics elements of the stack are moving from black-box delivery to enabling end-to-end visibility via new capabilities, such as date lineage, metadata and machine learning based integration and next generation monitoring tools for data flows. Additionally, the new stack enables every user to be an analytics consumer with ease-of-use via pre-packaged content and purpose-built applications using intelligence, machine learning and algorithms to boost productivity with data discovery, data preparation and seamless collaboration features for easily sharing best practices.

Informatica Data Integration and Data Management technologies already permeate all key layers of the new analytics stack, from its Hadoop base to its multiple platform layers to its self-service analytics penthouse. This fall, Informatica is raising the bar for cloud analytics performance and effectiveness with new and innovative offerings in the areas of:

  • Data lake management with self-service data preparation and data governance
  • Data management at any latency with high performance and streaming
  • New machine learning based tools empowering business users
  • Self-service data quality across SaaS and on-premise applications
  • Native cloud integration and data management across all Salesforce clouds
  • Powerful data integration for cloud data warehousing
  • CRM and eCommerce convergence
  • Out-of-the-box, one-click SaaS analytics
  • Quickstarts analytics initiatives with a pre-configured analytics stack that includes Informatica Cloud®, Power BI, Azure Blob and HDInsight.

These innovations follow on the heels of recently announced offerings Informatica developed to help organizations of all sizes quickly and cost-effectively jumpstart data management projects on AWS, enabling them to benefit from rapid innovation, agility and cloud economies.

“It is imperative that organizations possess the ability to seamlessly manage all their data, whether cloud or on-premise, traditional, IoT, social or big data, and bring it all together to power the brave new world that includes all kinds of data, everywhere,” said Ronen Schwartz, senior vice president and general manager, Cloud, Big Data and Data Integration, Informatica. “Informatica is committed to leading the charge toward transparent access to data of any type and rapid delivery of trusted, fit-for-purpose information, without which there is no hope of meeting today’s voracious demand for ready insights and rapid business decision making.”
