The Informatica Big Data Management package is the company’s answer to helping customers get real value out of their investments in big data infrastructure. Here are the details.

Every CIO wants data in one place, controlled by one master app. Informatica is offering its answer to that desire with the release of Informatica Big Data Management, which combines integration, governance, and security in one package. The new release is designed to make it easier for customers to get value out of big data.

Integration can be a bottleneck, since hand-coding cannot scale to handle typical big data challenges, such as collecting data streams from many varied sources. The Big Data Management package offers users more than 200 pre-built connectors to route data from any source to commonly used big data platforms such as Hadoop, NoSQL, and massively parallel processing (MPP) appliances.

Another 100 pre-built transformations and parsers are available to run natively on Hadoop to help process large data sets. Dynamic mapping automates various data integration processes, while a visual and graphical development capability allows users to set up data pipelines about five times faster than they could by hand-coding.

The governance component relies on collaborative stewardship, where non-technical and expert users can collaborate and manage the data. Automation will flag data anomalies by using preset rules and alerts. Spark is used for at-scale graph creation as part of the system’s live data map. Relationships between data can also be searched across all big data environments.

Informatica’s new Big Data Management package arrives at a time of expected significant growth in big data technology and services market.
