Informatica to turn Big Data into Big Value

Informatica has announced a new end-to-end solution to turn big data into trusted data assets for faster and more sustainable business value. With the Informatica Intelligent Data Lake – Informatica’s latest innovation in Big Data Management – data scientists and other business users can now find, prepare and protect data for analysis in a uniquely collaborative way that enables businesses to make decisions even faster, with managed self-service. By partnering with all the major big data ecosystem vendors and system integrators, Informatica is adding intelligence to data lakes by providing the unique insights into this data that only a leader in data management can do. According to Gartner, “through 2018, 80% of data lakes will not include effective metadata management capabilities, making them inefficient.” However, Informatica’s unique metadata-driven approach now enables organizations to deliver successful data lakes, with agility, flexibility and trust.

Today, Informatica announced Big Data Management v10.1, empowering organizations to turn big data into business value by exploiting relationships between data, machines and people. The transformative innovation for business leaders within Informatica Big Data Management is the Informatica Intelligent Data Lake. Previously, business leaders were reliant on IT to access the data they required for decision making and IT was reliant on manual, labor-intensive approaches to integrate, govern and secure big data in a fragmented technology ecosystem. In response, business users have started to use self-service data preparation tools, which are limiting since they inadvertently create security and compliance risks from expanding data anarchy and proliferation.

In order to achieve sustainable business value for organizations, Informatica delivers the solution which balances self-service with governance. Unlike other solutions, the Informatica Intelligent Data Lake bridges both the business and IT gaps by providing managed self-service for business with IT governance, including the ability to find and access any data centrally and discover data relationships. Additionally, the Informatica solution prepares, catalogs and shares relevant data to derive and operationalize trusted business insights quickly.

“Business self-service data preparation with collaboration and governance controls is a key capability to increasing the agility of data-driven organizations,” said Sridhar Potineni, executive vice president, Information Technology, Jones Lang LaSalle (JLL). “At JLL, Big Data Management with an Intelligent Data Lake is an important foundation for the success of our modern data architecture and big data initiatives.”

Informatica Big Data Management provides the most comprehensive end-to-end data management solution for big data initiatives. Gartner predicts, “through 2018, 70% of Hadoop deployments will fail to meet cost savings and revenue generation objectives due to skills and integration challenges.” The approach that Informatica has taken with the Informatica Big Data Management Platform is to provide a complete solution, including data ingestion, cleansing, transformation, matching, blending, governance, security and delivery, to provide the most critical capabilities for turning big data into business value.

Informatica Big Data Management v10.1 will be available in Q2 via subscription.
