Informatica and MapR: Build Your Enterprise Data Hub with Confidence

Informatica at a Glance

Informatica® provides data integration software and services that enable over 5,000 organizations worldwide to gain competitive advantage by empowering them with timely, relevant and trustworthy data for their top business initiatives.

Focus on Big Data Analysis— Not Integration

Rapidly deploy big data capabilities on Hadoop: Huge numbers of new data types, such as social media data, web logs, machine sensor data, and unstructured data, are created every day. As data volumes explode, they quickly consume the capacity of data warehouses and application databases. The result is that IT can quickly be forced into costly upgrades to expensive databases and data warehouse hardware appliances. Emerging technologies like Hadoop promise insight at significantly lower cost—yet organizations often put off big data projects due to resource constraints, perceived risk, and potential challenges with data integration between legacy platforms and next-generation architectures.

Fast On-Ramp to Hadoop

Today, most data scientists spend only 20 percent of their time on data analysis. The rest is spent on the mechanics of data integration—and these are expensive folks to employ.

This is what Informatica Big Data Standard Edition does best, and at scale. No specialized coding is required to scale performance on distributed computing platforms. Simply use the same PowerCenter GUI that has been used by thousands of integration developers for years. Now your IT staff can manage twice the data volume in half the time and focus on added-value activity; you can offload data from your expensive data warehouse to commodity hardware, and with unified administration you can build once and deploy anywhere—and for future-proof enterprise-grade operations, only the MapR Distribution for Apache Hadoop offers unprecedented reliability and scale.
