Customers often inquire about the best way to get their team up to speed on the Informatica solutions. The question Informatica University hears frequently is whether a team should attend our public scheduled courses or hold a Private training event. The number of resources to be skilled on the products will help to determine which option to choose. If your team, or multiple teams within your company, has 7 or more resources that require getting up to speed on the Informatica products, then a Private training event is the recommended choice.
Seven (7) for a remote instructor and nine (9) for an onsite instructor is the break even cost per resource when determining whether to hold a private training and is the most cost efficient delivery for a team. In addition to the cost benefit, customers who have taken this option value the daily access to their team members to keep business operations humming along, and the opportunity to collaborate with key team members not attending by allowing them to provide input to project perspective.
These reserved events also provide the opportunity to be adapted to focus on a customers needs by tailoring course materials to highlight topics that will be key to a project’s implementation which provide creative options to get a team up to speed on the Informatica projects at hand.
With Informatica University’s new flexible pricing, hosting a Private Training event is easy. All it takes is:
- A conference room
- Training PC’s or laptops for participants
- Access to the Internet
- An LCD projector, screen, white board, and appropriate markers
Private training events provide the opportunity to get your resources comfortable and efficient with the Informatica Solutions and have a positive impact on the success of your projects.

Attention MDM developers, did you know that Informatica Master Data Management MultiDomain Edition now supports record locking in addition to table locking? Now you can have a batch process and allow users to access data without locking the entire table.
As of release 9.x, MDM now supports record locking. Earlier versions of MDM MultiDomain allowed table locks, but newer versions (since 9.x) allow for record locking.
You can accomplish record locking by enabling “BATCH API Interoperability.” (more…)
What an amazing week we had last week in Vegas with the Informatica community. I hope you all enjoyed the conference as much as I did. Having spent the last year pulling together the various components, it is wonderful when it all comes together! There were many memorable highlights ranging from the Product Councils on the Monday, to the pool party that evening to the keynotes on Tuesday including the launch of the Informatica 9.5 Platform, breakouts, hands-on labs, the Executive Summit, the Advisory Boards, the party at Haze nightclub and the closing keynotes.
Here are a few of my favorites – what are yours? (more…)
As we look at 2012 it is abundantly clear that the importance of “data” is on the rise….big data, data management, master data management (MDM), data governance….these major trends are all getting increased attention in business, technology and mainstream media. Considering that data management was even mentioned by President Obama during the recent State of the Union Address, it’s safe to say that data’s time has definitely come!
Successfully executing any one of these data-centered initiatives and realizing the desired ‘return on data’ requires one fundamental ingredient……data you and your business users can trust. After all, without confidence in the data you are relying on, it’s back to the old adage of ‘garbage in, garbage out’. Fortunately, Informatica’s relentless pursuit to be a leader in data integration means you have the right MDM, data quality and data integration tools to help get the job done. (more…)
