April in Vegas – Informatica a Sponsor at the Gartner Enterprise Information & MDM Summit

Vegas_Strip

Last month, our MDM Day Conference in New York confirmed that data management is a hot topic. As many have sought additional knowledge regarding best practices, next month’s Gartner Enterprise Information & MDM Summit will provide great learning opportunities. As a sponsor, Informatica will host two sessions focused on MDM in action during this event from April 2nd – 4th in Las Vegas.

On Thursday, April 3rd, Informatica will present alongside one of our clients, AutoTrader. We’ll discuss AutoTrader’s successful integration of its auto dealers, OEMs, and ad agencies, through the use of multidomain MDM. As a result of this, AutoTrader increased revenue through cross-sell and upsell, and also improved customer service and retention rates through a 360-degree view of relationships.

You will learn how to architect a real-time operational MDM hub integrating multiple acquired companies, establish cross-functional data governance, and measure ongoing data quality. Lastly, we will discuss what worked and didn’t with business stakeholders and how to mitigate risk.

What: Increasing Revenue and Retention in M&A: AutoTraders’ Operational MDM Case Study
When:
April 3rd, 10:15-11:15 AM
Where:
Pallazo D, Venetian Hotel, Las Vegas

Later that afternoon, I will present “Hybrid MDM Architecture: Scaling On-premise MDM to Hybrid Cloud Hub-of-Hubs.” This presentation will cover how MDM implementations begin by solving the most pressing business problem in a single hub. While these implementations are mostly on premise, they can expand to another use case, domain, or region, and might evolve to another MDM hub within the cloud or in a different country. Whatever the journey is, the question is clear: How do you integrate different hubs in a hybrid or federated hub-of-hubs MDM architecture?

Come to this session to learn how certain leading companies are solving this conundrum.

What: Hybrid MDM Architecture: Scaling On-premise MDM to Hybrid Cloud Hub-of-Hubs
When:
April 3rd, 1:15-1:35 PM
Where:
Exhibit Floor, Theater Area, Venetian Hotel, Las Vegas

Experience is the best way to learn – but second-best is to learn from someone else’s experience. We look forward to seeing you at the Gartner Enterprise Information & MDM Summit on Thursday, April 3rd.

MDM Day in New York a Huge Hit, Thanks to YOU!

I’m astounded by the incredible turnout and response to MDM Day and other MDM-related events at Informatica World, and again, I see this as a sign of MDM’s importance in the business world.

But now let’s keep the momentum going. Here I want to tell you about three free webinars that will help you to dive more deeply into MDM, and take your initiatives to the next level.

Hybrid IT and the Latest Informatica Cloud Release

In a recent Information Management blog post, Alex Bakker from Saugatuck Technology noted:

“There is an underlying problem facing many, if not most enterprise IT leaders and organizations: these technologies [Cloud, Mobile, Social, Analytics and Integration] have developed much faster than enterprise IT groups and practices have been able to adopt and manage them.”

Sound familiar? Gartner (and others) have referred to the new reality of enterprise IT as Hybrid IT. At Informatica World next month, we have an entire track on this topic.

The good news is a topic that was once considered the “Achilles heel of cloud computing” is increasingly being recognized as the key enabler of cloud success:  integration and data management. With that in mind, Informatica rolled out our Summer 2013 release this week. Here are some highlights and useful resources. (more…)

2013 Cloud Data Management Predictions

Ok, I know it’s a little late to post 2013 technology predictions, but with so many good ones published already, I figured I’d sandbag a little and not only post a few of my own but also share a few of my favorites so far. For me, it starts with Mary Meeker’s Internet Trends presentation. 2013 is going to be a year of “re-imagining” enterprise software, from social, to mobile, to cloud, to Big Data and Analytics.

I summarized my 2012 predictions in an earlier post and Informatica already posted some great predictions from the world of data. Here are my 2013 cloud data management predictions. (more…)

Dreamforce Takeaways: Struggling with Salesforce Adoption? You’re Not Alone

I just returned from my first Dreamforce experience, which surpassed my expectations.  In this brief video I talk about how inspired I was by salesforce.com’s customer-obsessed culture. However, many Dreamforce attendees I spoke with admit that they struggle with Salesforce adoption.

This is consistent with the results of a LinkedIn poll: 52% of sales managers said sales reps don’t use CRM like they want them to, highlighted in this BlueWolf blog, who is one of our partners:  4 Ways to Make Your Salesforce Adoption Dreams Come True at Dreamforce 2012. (more…)
