Informatica Accelerates Cloud Modernization Journey with PowerCenter Cloud Edition

Media Alert, REDWOOD CITY, Calif., September 19, 2023 – Following the private preview earlier this year, PowerCenter Cloud Edition is now generally available. PowerCenter Cloud Edition enables the conversion of customers’ on-premises PowerCenter workloads to the cloud (Intelligent Data Management Cloud) and includes a trio of new cloud-native services:

  • Cloud Data Integration for PowerCenter (CDI-PC): allows customers to run on-premises PowerCenter workloads as cloud workloads in a PowerCenter-compatible mode without the need to migrate any metadata or business logic. 
    • Customers can significantly accelerate time to value receiving cloud benefits such as automated updates, real-time security fixes, and reduced overheads associated with legacy software operations.
    • Customers can manage their PowerCenter deployment as well as cloud deployment through a single cloud control plane.
  • PowerCenter to Cloud Data Integration Self-Service (PC2CDI): allows customers to convert and transform PowerCenter assets for cloud-native pattern. 
    • With 95% AI-driven automation, customers can re-use their years of investment in PowerCenter and convert the business logic to cloud native and modern ELT and ETL paradigm supporting their modern data warehouse and analytics initiatives.
    • Customers can modernize at their own pace allowing them complete flexibility to use any IDMC cloud-native service with a consumption-based pricing (IPU) model.
  • Cloud Data Validation (CDV): allows customers to validate metadata conversion accuracy. 
    • CDV quickly identifies data anomalies and validate metadata conversion accuracy at the data level ensuring successful migration. 
    • CDV helps reduce post conversion efforts involving user acceptance, pre-production and production testing.
