Beyond our wildest expectations—not to mention our original room reservations—the Third MDM Day event on February 19th was a tremendous success, a “three-peat” if you will. Expecting 100 attendees, we had nearly 500 registrations and a crowd of 350 who braved the weather, including a quarter of whom traveled from outside the tri-state area, to join us in New York City for a wall-to-wall day of MDM discussion and presentations.
“Opportunity for the large community to share experiences, lessons learnt, and help those that are starting the MDM journey get on the right track.”
Next month, Informatica will host its third MDM Day conference. Our past two events in Las Vegas and London have been huge successes thanks to the active participation of our customers, partners, and colleagues. The conference is structured to provide opportunities for you to share your ideas, provide guidance to our product management team, and learn from other customers’ MDM and PIM journeys.
When: February 12th, 8:30 AM – 5:00 PM

A few weeks ago I told you about a few webinars that can help you to dig deeper into MDM. One, entitled How to Integrate On-Premise and Cloud MDM Hubs Using Federated MDM Architecture, which took place last month, had over a hundred attendees, and they asked a lot of great questions.
Here, I’ll take an opportunity to answer a few:
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. Attendees told their stories, swapped best-practices, and shared their visions of using MDM to improve up-sell, cross-sell, and other important business metrics. 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. The first is for any large organization, and the other two are for pharmaceutical companies. (more…)
“MDM Hits It Out of the Ballpark at Informatica World.” I heard that comment from not just one, but from many Informatica World attendees. I smiled, but inquired further, “What makes you say that?” Each of them gave a different answer.
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.”
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…)
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.
Informatica Cloud Winter 2013 has arrived. This is the fourteenth release of the company’s award-winning family of cloud integration applications and integration platform as a service (iPaaS), which has now expanded to include Informatica Cloud Master Data Management (MDM). In this post I’ll provide an overview of the new cloud integration and cloud data quality capabilities. Be sure to register for a 30 day trial and/or attend the release webinar on Thursday to see Informatica Cloud in action.
Yesterday I attended Informatica’s first annual Cloud Connect conference in San Francisco, which was followed by a Dreamforce 2012 kick-off party sponsored by our partners Astada, Covisint, MicroStrategy and Zyme. It was a busy day, with a keynote from Juan Carlos Soto focused on the three pillars of our cloud computing product strategy, a deep-dive technical update and Ask the Experts stations for one-on-one interaction with product management. We also announced the winners of our 2012 Cloudy Awards! Congratulations to all of the winners! I’ll post some pictures next week. (more…)
