Community Technology Alliance

Community Technology Alliance was founded in 1991 to design and construct the technical infrastructure necessary to support the work to end homelessness in Santa Clara County.

CTA has since evolved into a nonprofit focusing on ways for databases and other tools to communicate and exchange data, and on ways to integrate and centrally store data for reporting and data visualization purposes.

“We use Informatica tools to be able to take all of these disparate data sets and load it into our data warehouse, or our data lake, because not every system is going to have the tools, or the APIs, or even an export that's going to make that easy. And Informatica helps us make that happen.”

— Javier Celedon, Operations Director, Community Technology Alliance
