The UK’s oldest automotive association, RAC provides more than 7 million members with a comprehensive range of services, from roadside assistance to financing, insurance, and travel information. To protect its century-old brand and improve its services, RAC wanted to integrate all of its customer data in a single database.

“Informatica’s PowerCenter ETL tool has been a technological cornerstone of RAC's Data Warehouse project; it has provided efficient extraction of disparate data sources, the application of complex business rules in the transformation mappings, and highly performant loading of the transformed data into the target database.”
