MADRID, Spain and REDWOOD CITY, Calif., September 05, 2012 - 

News Facts:

  • Informatica Corporation (Nasdaq:INFA), the world’s number one independent provider of data integration software, today announced that Grupo Banco Popular, the leading Spanish financial services group, is using Informatica Data Quality, a key component of  the Informatica Platform to improve services for its six million customers.
  • Banco Popular is increasing the value of data by ensuring that all the information associated with its customers is accurate, actionable and holistic. Simultaneously, the bank is using this authoritative view of customer data to lower data processing costs and increase the return on data.
  • The bank’s Quality of Information Office, belonging to the Corporate Information Center, publishes a monthly Information Quality Index covering both physical and juridical entities. The Quality Index is elaborated using various types of information, including addresses, contacts, socioeconomical data, banking activity data and occupation, amongst other types of data. Previously, the creation of the Quality Index required a significant amount of resources, mainframe processing time and money. Informatica Data Quality automates and streamlines this process, and is anticipated to raise the Index’s measurement of data quality from 75 percent to more than 90 percent.
  • At the same time, specific variables have been included in the legal entities index in order to optimize consumption of capital and provisions, as well as contrasting other fundamental variables to calculate the probability of non-payments and the Basel models. A more accurate calculation of the provisions required for real estate assets will allow the bank to increase its return on data.
