Optimize Your SOA With Reusable Data Services

The Informatica solution for service-oriented architecture (SOA) provides the missing but critical technology foundation for delivering trustworthy, actionable, and authoritative data as a service to SOAs. This solution enhances your SOA’s ability to supply the data your business needs—when, where, and how it needs it—to stay agile and competitive.

  • Improve decision making by providing fast and direct access to consistent and accurate data that the business needs and trusts
  • Increase customer satisfaction and loyalty by delivering a single, complete view of the customer that includes critical transactional data
  • Speed time to market and lower development costs by providing a common, model-based, metadata-driven data services layer and pre-built complex transformations that increase productivity and reuse
  • Improve IT’s adaptability and agility in response to changing business needs with a flexible data abstraction layer and providing real-time access to data at any latency
  • Reuse existing resources and assets by leveraging existing Informatica skillsets and services across projects, as well as the largest independent data integration ecosystem of developers and partners
  • Reduce the complexity of integration by replacing traditional point-to-point application and data integration with common, reusable, and flexible data services
  • Minimize risk of data downtime or outages by providing a high performance, scalable, secure, and reliable data services and data integration foundation
  • Minimize risk of project overruns with an agile data integration framework and data quality certification
  • Support compliance and reduce risk by involving business users up front to create and validate rules and enabling effective change management through graphical impact analysis and data lineage
