Data Integration in Action at Informatica World

Great Data is By DesignWouldn’t you like to have been a fly on the wall when American Airlines and US Airways experts got together to integrate their data systems into one cohesive post-merger system?

Now you can experience the next best thing by attending InformaticaWorld 2014 and hearing the American Airlines US Airways Data Architects talk about the data challenges they faced. They will discuss the role of architecture in M&A, integrating legacy data, lessons learned, and best practices in Data Integration.

While you are at the show, you will have the opportunity to hear many industry experts discuss current trends in Agile end-to-end Data Integration.  

Agile Data Integration Development
To deliver the agility that your business requires, IT and Business must pursue a collaborative Data Integration process, with the appropriate Analyst self-service Data Integration tools.  At InformaticaWorld, you can learn about Agile Data Integration development from the experts at GE Aviation, who will discuss Agile Data Integration for Big Data Analytics. Experts from Roche, will discuss how Agile Data Integration has lead to a 5x reduction in development time, improved business self-service capabilities and increased data credibility.

Scalability
Another aspect of agility is your ability to scale your Data Warehouse to rapidly support more data, data sources, users and projects.  Come hear the experts from Liberty Mutual share challenges, pitfalls, best practices and recommendations for those considering large-scale Data Integration projects, including successful implementation of complex data migrations, data quality and data distribution processes.

Operational Confidence
The management of an enterprise-scale Data Warehouse involves the operation of a mature and complex mission-critical environment, which is commonly driven through an Integration Competency Center (ICC) initiative.  You now have the need to inspect and adapt your production system and expedite data validation and monitoring processes through automation, so that data issues can be quickly caught and corrected and resources can be freed up to focus on development. 

The experts from University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, along with Informatica Professional Services experts, will discuss best practices, lessons learned and the process of transitioning from ‘analytics as project’ to an enterprise initiative through the use of an Integration Competency Center. 

Hear from the Informatica Product Experts
You will have many opportunities to hear directly from the Informatica product experts about end-to-end Data Integration Agility delivered in the recent 9.6 release of PowerCenter.
