Informatica Brings Enterprise-wide Data Governance and Management to Cloudera Enterprise Data Hub

Informatica Enterprise Metadata Integration with Cloudera Navigator and Cloudera Manager enables lineage, metadata search and lifecycle management across enterprise data sources

Redwood City, Calif., October 15, 2014 - 

Informatica Corporation (Nasdaq:INFA), the world’s number one independent provider of data integration software, today announced Informatica Big Data Edition integration with Cloudera Navigator.

Informatica extends the reach of Cloudera Navigator to include data lineage and auditing from beyond a Hadoop-based Cloudera enterprise data hub to upstream data sources and to downstream consuming analytic applications and operational processes. To truly understand the full lifecycle of enterprise data, from the relational transactional systems and other NoSQL systems of record, to an enterprise data hub, and then onto downstream operational and reporting systems, the Hadoop-centric metadata within Cloudera Navigator needs to be married to an enterprise-wide metadata management environment. The integration of Informatica and Cloudera metadata now delivers this end-to-end solution for Hadoop and beyond.

“Informatica’s integration with Cloudera Navigator provides enterprises with valuable data lineage, as their data pipelines flow into and through an enterprise data hub,” said Tim Stevens, vice president, Corporate and Business Development at Cloudera. “Together, Cloudera and Informatica provide an optimal solution to enable large organizations to get their Hadoop projects into production quickly and with the veracity and governance they need.”

According to a Sept. 9, 2014, report by Gartner, Inc., a leading IT research and advisory firm, entitled “Survey Analysis: Big Data Investment Grows but Deployments Remain Scarce in 2014,” only 32 percent of the organizations, which Gartner surveyed and which already had invested in big data, had deployed production big data projects.

Many organizations struggle with taking big data projects from the proof-of-concept (sandbox) stage to the production stage, where simplicity of lifecycle management and end-to-end visibility become critical requirements. The new offering from Informatica bridges this gap.

  • Simplicity of Lifecyle Management. The integration between Informatica Big Data Edition and Cloudera Manager brings unparalleled simplicity for Cloudera administrators to deploy and administer production data integration jobs on their clusters, massively increasing productivity.
  • End-to-End Visibility. Informatica Big Data Edition provides incomparable visibility into data relationships and lineage across the enterprise, from metadata located in original sources systems, to the metadata within Cloudera Navigator, all the way to the downstream consuming business intelligence application. This unique ability to ensure data governance enables enterprises to confidently implement a Hadoop-based enterprise data hub even for mission critical uses.

Ash Kulkarni, senior vice president and general manager, Data Integration and Cloud, Informatica, said, “Informatica is the trusted data integration vendor at more than 5,000 enterprises worldwide. As Hadoop enters a new era of mainstream adoption, Informatica is working with Cloudera to bring the same kind of development agility, at-scale deployment simplicity, and end-to-end metadata visibility and auditing to Cloudera Enterprise. Now, even the most demanding enterprises can trust their mission critical uses to the combination of Informatica and Cloudera.”

At Strata + Hadoop World, Oct. 15-17 at the Javits Center in New York, Informatica will showcase (in Booth #352) its deep integration with Cloudera Enterprise, which accelerates the time to deploy big data projects from pilot to production.
