End-To-End Data Integration Platform
The only fully integrated end-to-end data integration platform, Informatica PowerCenter Enterprise scales readily for any project, from one-offs to enterprise-wide initiatives. It converts raw data into information to drive analysis, daily operations, and data governance initiatives, delivering results at speeds up to five times faster than hand-coding and traditional graphical tools.
Data Integration Agility
When an end-to-end data integration process takes months to deliver results, the delay can postpone projects, raise costs, and increase risk. With PowerCenter Enterprise, you can jumpstart and accelerate data integration projects to complete them on time and under budget. Role-based tools share common metadata, foster instant business-IT collaboration, and let analysts and developers rapidly prototype, iterate, analyze, validate, deploy, and monitor their data integrations. The result? Projects delivered in days instead of months.
Scaling up to support large data volumes requires more than just throughput. PowerCenter Enterprise underpins your enterprise-wide data integration strategy by supporting any number and type of project and any volume of data while providing the governance you need. Informatica provides a common vocabulary that keeps business and IT in sync, while delivering visibility into data lineage so you can manage more users and more projects, more easily. And this occurs all through one familiar graphical user interface that leverages existing skills.
You can't afford to discover data integration failures after the fact. PowerCenter Enterprise protects your critical business processes by combining automated, auditable, and repeatable data validation testing with monitoring and proactive alerts to warn stakeholders when issues arise in your development and operational processes. With PowerCenter Enterprise validating data, monitoring operations, and enforcing best practices, you can spot and mitigate small problems before they explode into big ones that affect your organization's ability to function.
PowerCenter Enterprise forms the foundation for all your data and enterprise integration initiatives—including data governance, data migration, and enterprise data warehousing—setting the standard for high-performance enterprise data integration and quality software. It scales to support large volumes of disparate data sources and meets demands for security and performance.
