Sustain the Application Environment More Efficiently and Affordably
Sustaining your current application environment can gobble up as much as 90 percent of your IT budget, according to industry analysts. Mergers, acquisitions, and business users' own purchases lead to duplicate and redundant applications. Large data volumes slow down performance until you risk failing to meet service level agreements (SLAs). Multiple interfaces complicate management and integration. Data in production and nonproduction environments can pose a security risk. All these issues lead to:
- Difficulty managing and controlling data growth
- Operational inefficiencies
- Rising costs
- Poor decisions and missed opportunities
- Risk of regulatory noncompliance
Streamline and Strengthen the Application Portfolio
Using the Informatica Platform, application owners and enterprise architects can more easily retire duplicate or outdated applications, minimize the number and complexity of application interfaces, shrink the data footprint within applications, and protect sensitive, private data throughout the application lifecycle. The Informatica Platform frees IT to dedicate more resources to innovation by:
- Rationalizing the application portfolio by retiring duplicate or outdated applications, while still retaining access to retired data for compliance purposes
- Improving the ability to meet application performance SLAs by reducing the data footprint
- Enhancing productivity and efficiency by integrating data across applications in a way that is scalable, repeatable, and cost-effective
- Reducing the risk of data breaches by protecting sensitive data throughout the application lifecycle
Pinpointing data anomalies that could interfere with application performance and predictability
The Informatica Platform supports application rationalization initiatives by retiring redundant applications, eliminating hardware, software, and maintenance costs associated with legacy applications, and reducing storage consumption—all while preserving easy data access. The Informatica Platform also promotes faster, more reliable application performance by archiving inactive data to lower-tier storage to shrink storage and maintenance costs while reducing the demand for CPU, memory, and bandwidth. The ability to create functionally intact production data subsets reduces the data footprint without compromising data security—while also improving the productivity, efficiency, and quality of application development, testing, and training. In addition, the Informatica Platform accesses, discovers, cleanses, and integrates structured and unstructured data in virtually any format, speeding application integration both on premise and in the cloud for greater productivity in less time with no loss of control over data.
