About the Architect's Challenge
The Informatica Architect's Challenge is a chance for you to step back, think about the future and demonstrate thought leadership. We are asking you to submit proposals for the next generation of enterprise data architecture. Specifically, a data architecture that will not only deal with new technology but thrive on it and serve as a springboard for insight and innovation within your organization. Even more importantly, it should provide a clear link to business value, showing how this data architecture will accelerate the delivery of business value.
Have fun, get creative, and help out your favorite school. And get some visibility for your ideas in the process.
100 iPad Minis 16GB for the winner's school of choice. The grand prize is worth over $30,000 USD.
