Chicago Cubs

The Chicago Cubs is a baseball team in the National League Central division. Legend says that during the 1945 World Series, a curse was placed on the team after the owner of the local Billy Goat Tavern and his goat were asked to leave. The team didn’t play in a World Series until it won in 2016.

“By choosing Informatica for enterprise data management, we’re in a great position to make sure that people have experiences that will keep them lifelong Cubs fans.”
