I just came back from MicroStrategy World. There were many conversations about social, mobile, cloud and big data. There was strong interest in cloud, clear adoption of mobile, and some big data adoption. eHarmony had a great presentation about how they handle big data with Informatica, and how they’re starting to use Hadoop with Informatica HParser running on Hadoop for processing JSON.

There were over 30 rules revealed. My two favorites were: 1) Good Cardio – to outrun zombies and 4) Doubletap – shoot a zombie twice to make sure they are done.

One of the major corporate objectives that Informatica tracks every quarter is “Improve Customer Satisfaction”. We look at at variety of metrics – both qualitative and quantitative – relating to how you, our customers, are engaging with us. We evaluate everything from Marketing to our technical support interactions, the critiques from our training courses, the engagement feedback from our professional services and more besides. All of these are reported regularly to our CEO and the Board of Directors.
So, we were delighted to receive an accolade recently in regard to our professional service organization. We were awarded the honor of being “best of the best” in SPI Research’s annual survey. This is very important to us, since I think it reflects our commitment to you - by focusing on differentiating ourselves by delivering the best possible service at all times. You can find the press release announcing the award here. (more…)

Shortening Development Times through Lean Integration

Spend a few minutes with David Lyle, Informatica’s VP of Product Strategy and you will learn three things.

The result? Embracing “Lean Integration”, a management system emphasizing continuous improvements and the elimination of waste in end-to-end data integration and process integration activities.
