PowerCenter Express offers entry-level data integration and profiling for your department or small or mid-market business. With it, you can start quickly: download and begin using PowerCenter Express in under 10 minutes. And like Informatica Cloud and PowerCenter Enterprise, PowerCenter Express leverages the Vibe™ Virtual Data Machine, so you can scale whenever and however you need to.

The Gold Standard for Data Integration

The Gold Standard for Data Integration

Recognized year after year as the leader in data integration and data quality by every major analyst firm, Informatica has set the standard. But for some projects, it's all about "how long?" and "how much to get started?" PowerCenter Express answers those questions simply: today and for free.


Unmatched Power Meets Unparalleled Ease-of-Use

Unmatched Power Meets Unparalleled
Ease-of-Use

PowerCenter Express has all the extract, transform, and load (ETL) functionality of PowerCenter EnterpriseBut it makes integration experts out of even novice business analysts with the help of a drag-and-drop interface and "cheat sheets" to guide users through common and less common tasks. And PowerCenter Express provides in-line profiling that lets you evaluate and address data quality issues—directly through the software.


Quickly and Easily Scale to Enterprise Level

Quickly and Easily Scale to Enterprise Level

PowerCenter Express is powered by Vibe, an embeddable data management engine. With Vibe, the mappings you create in PowerCenter Express can be easily deployed in PowerCenter Enterprise and Informatica Cloud—and even to Hadoop for your big data project. This means you can spend more time integrating new sources of data rather than re-doing the integrations you've done before.


It used to be that only the largest enterprises and projects could access high-quality data integration and profiling tools. PowerCenter Express changes that. It democratizes data integration with instant access, ease-of-use, and functionality geared for smaller, departmental projects that can easily fold into larger, more sophisticated enterprise architectures.

Comprehensive ETL Functionality

Comprehensive ETL Functionality

PowerCenter Express provides all the extract, transform, and load (ETL) functionality you need to bring in data sources, create mappings and test them mid-stream, and execute complex, multi-step transformations (including aggregations, string manipulations, ranking, and more). And you can do it all easily.


Fast, Easy Installation

Fast, Easy Installation

With PowerCenter Express, you'll be up and running in less than 10 minutes, thanks to its simple click-through installation and configuration. The software has a small memory footprint, comes with an embedded database for domain and repository, and can be installed even on low-configuration laptops.


In-Line Data Profiling

In-Line Data Profiling

With PowerCenter Express, you can perform unlimited column and rule-based data profiling, all in-line. That means you can assess your data's quality as you design, without leaving the interface. Data profiling auto-identifies your column format and quantity, tells you the percentage of each format represented (including "null" values), and lets you drill in to better understand the context.


Embedded Cheat Sheets

Embedded Cheat Sheets

Contextual "cheat sheets" accessible directly through the PowerCenter Express interface provide step-by-step guidance on performing common and less common data integration tasks. In addition to those currently available, you'll find new cheat sheets regularly posted to My Support.


An Integration Ecosystem to Explore and Exploit

An Integration Ecosystem to Explore and Exploit

PowerCenter Express is fully integrated with Informatica Marketplace, giving you instant access to hundreds of applications that extend the power of PowerCenter Express—at little or no cost. Think of it as iTunes for integration—just as easy, but even more powerful.

The Connectivity You Need

PowerCenter Express provides connectivity to relational databases, flat files, ODBC, JDBC, XML, social media sources, Web services—even unstructured data like Word and PDF files.

Metadata-Driven

PowerCenter Express includes metadata for transformations, mappings, and workflows, and lets you re-use components from one data integration job in another.

High-Performance Integration Engine

Even when executing the most complex, multi-step transformations, PowerCenter Express is up to 10 times faster than other free data integration tools.
