Data Management for Crisis Response and Recovery

Plan for response, recovery, and future preparedness

Data management and analytics are keys to effective crisis response

The success of an organization’s response to a crisis hinges to a large degree on its ability to manage the accompanying deluge of data. Whether you’re responding to a natural disaster, an economic collapse, or a disease outbreak, leveraging data as an asset is critical.

With appropriate data management tools, you can productively manage an influx of data from a wide variety of sources, helping you to coordinate a timely, integrated, and wide-reaching response for the crisis at hand, smooth the path to recovery, and prepare for future incidents. From government to higher education to healthcare and financial services, organizations must establish a way to collect and store data securely, as well as ensure that everyone from data scientists to policy makers are conducting analyses and making decisions based on high-quality data.

Automatically discover and prepare data 

Validate and enrich contact data, including citizen, employee, and business addresses and phone numbers, and instantly verify that email addresses are not only accurate but also safe to send to. Data as a Service (DaaS) allows you to easily identify whether phone records correspond to mobile or landlines, which is critical for enrolling people in SMS alert programs.

Standardize and catalog all data

An Enterprise Data Catalog helps streamline data search and retrieval efforts by automating the discovery and understanding of your data across cloud and on-premises systems using artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning capabilities. You can standardize and catalog all data with context and glossaries. Use intelligent profiling to find your best-quality data at scale with Google-like search capabilities.

Ingest and integrate data at scale

Rapidly ingest petabytes of data and integrate data to and from files, databases, or streaming sources, including on-premises and multi-cloud environments with Cloud Mass Ingestion. Easily support new and complex integration patterns with Informatica Data Integration solutions and achieve high performance, reliability, and near-universal connectivity for mission-critical processes. 


Master and relate data to create a single source of truth

Combine transaction, interaction, and other citizen data types and manage billions of records across all data sources in existing data lakes or Hadoop environments. With Informatica Master Data Management solutions, you can link citizen, patient, or claimant data, as well as social data, and create relationships using machine learning, right out of the box.

Provide a trusted foundation for decision-making

Leverage the Informatica Data Quality Accelerator for Crisis Response. With more than 65 pre-built, re-usable data quality rules that work with both Informatica Data Quality and Cloud Data Quality, the accelerator includes support for rapid data cleansing to speed data handling both on-premises and in the cloud.


Ensure compliance and protect sensitive data

Ensure compliance with CCPA and GDPR and detect and protect sensitive personal identification information (PII). With data security solutions such as Informatica Data Masking, you can de-identify, de-sensitize, and anonymize sensitive data from inadvertent release or unauthorized access for application users, mission intelligence, application testing, and outsourcing.
