SmartStream Technologies provides enterprise-wide, real-time Transaction Lifecycle Management solutions to 1,000 clients, including 75 of the world's top 100 banks. The increasingly global, highly regulated banking industry has required SmartStream to accommodate data in multiple formats from a broad array of both standard and proprietary platforms. To focus on customer service rather than data integration challenges, the software company opted to adopt Informatica's best-of-breed data integration platform.

Challenges

  • Meet customer demand for faster, simpler data integration
  • Help customers meet regulatory demands more promptly
  • Eliminate need to provide customers with custom-coded data integration
The increasing drive to streamline global banking practices means our software needs to manage highly complex and rapid transactions across platforms and different banks. We needed data integration capabilities and had to buy them or build them. By using Informatica PowerCenter, rather than having to continually create bespoke data interfaces, we have freed up our professional services teams to provide more value to our customers.
