Leveraging the Flexibility of Informatica MDM: An Architecture Deep Dive

Informatica World pre-conference session kicked off on Monday at the Gaylord National Harbor, Washington DC. One of the four sessions was “Leveraging the Flexibility of Informatica MDM – An Architecture Deep Dive”. Dmitri Korablev, VP of MDM Strategy, Ron Matusof, VP of MDM Solution Architecture, and Steve Hoskin, MDM Chief Architect conducted the session. The key objective was to explain the advanced architectural concepts of Informatica MDM relating to security, high performance, high availability, concurrency, and integration.

Dmitri started off quoting Albert Einstein “make everything as simple as possible, but not simpler” as the guiding principle that drove the design of Informatica MDM. He and Ron presented the six-step process to design an MDM solution – defining usage scenarios, selecting solution options, evaluating consumption patterns, defining data model, defining solution architecture, and applying non-functional requirements to the solution. Deeper conversations in each of the steps emphasized the guiding principle – keep MDM solution design simple! (more…)

Welcome To Informatica World 2010

Welcome To Informatica World 2010

Our annual gathering takes place this week in Washington D.C.  We have a fabulous agenda with many significant keynotes, together with a packed agenda of breakout sessions – including over 40 presentations by you, our customers. An enormous amount has happened since we last gathered two years ago – remember last year when we were in the middle of the great recession when we held our “Deep Dive” preview of Informatica 9 to our closest customers and partners under NDA?

We followed the Deep Dive with the launch of Informatica 9 in November last year, followed by many new releases of our cloud service and other products within our Platform.  We have deployed new communities and launched the Informatica Marketplace.  We extended our Platform into Complex Event Processing, Master Data Management and Ultra Messaging.  We have been recognized by Gartner as a leader in their magic quadrants for Data Integration, Data Quality and Customer Master Data Management.  Forrester have positioned us as a leader in “Information-as-a-Service” and Data Quality and for the fifth consecutive year we are ranked number 1 in customer satisfaction.

Make Time an Asset not an Enemy

Do you know how long ago the earthquake in Haiti was?  It was 9 months ago.  For some reason, when I heard a recent report, that fact caught me off guard. Wow, 9 months ago! Next year will be 10 years after 9-11.

Just try to catch time

They say time is a constant but it certainly feels like it’s constantly speeding up and passing us by.  It’s so easy to see how time is our enemy. After all it’s the only sure roadmap to all our earthly destinies (sorry for getting philosophical for a moment).

How do we turn time into an organizational asset?  Time seems to always be the enemy when we are in a “reactive” state.  This is when something bad has already happened and we are working to fix it.

But, instrumenting both technical and business operations to sense more granular activities and identify meaningful opportunities is the key way we turn time into an asset.  So, do you fight time? Or do you take time by the horns and make it a strategic advantage?

We’ll be talking about being proactive when it comes to emergency services and public safety at Informatica World.  I’m excited to have retired NYPD detective Gary Maio (now partner at Data Vision Group) and Bellingham Fire Chief Bill Boyd (Twitter handle ‘chiefb2‘) presenting on Wednesday, November 3rd at Informatica World in Washington, DC. They’ll talk about real cases, the challenges they face and the technology currently used along with their vision for the future – a future that will make us all safer.
