International Women’s Day 2015 – Informatica’s Female Leadership (Part 5)


In honor of International Women’s Day 2015, Informatica is celebrating female leadership in a blog series. Every day this week, we will showcase a new female leader at Informatica, who will share their perspective on what it’s like to be a woman in the tech industry.

Name:
Shino Kizaki  

Informatica's Female Leadership - Shino Kizaki, Sales Account Manager - Japan

Informatica’s Female Leadership – Shino Kizaki, Sales Account Manager – Japan

Job title:
Sales Account Manager – Japan. Responsible for financial and service industry accounts.

Leadership style:
In general, there are still very few females working in tech, as both sales and engineers. I’m the only woman working in the sales division in Japan. Being a minority can be challenging, but it’s a very fun as well! It makes me want to “WOW” my colleagues and customers even more, which helps to build long-term business and professional relationships.

Advice for other women:
There are a ton of advantages to being a minority in a workplace! Including myself, I believe there are a lot of women who don’t ask for help when they need it. Don’t be afraid to ask for support! People want to help you succeed.

Thoughts about Informatica’s culture:

  • I have the best colleagues. I’m grateful to work with people I can look up to and learn from.
  • I always have an opportunity to challenge myself, which is crucial as a sale’s professional.
  • Great opportunities to step up and grow in my career.

What is Change Data Capture? Something Business and IT Both Agree on for Mainframe Data Integration

A few days ago, I got a text message from a friend telling me that my favorite company’s stock price was suddenly tanking and that I should dump my holding.  So I went to the news portal to get a stock quote and see where the stock price happens to be. I found that the stock didn’t move much at all.  Thinking that it might’ve been a prank text message, I ignored it.  To my dismay, the stock quote I saw was delayed by 20 minutes and the decline wasn’t yet reflected in the news portal.

Why MDM and Data Quality is Such a Big Deal for Big Data

Big Data is the confluence of three major technology trends hitting the industry right now: Big Transaction Data (describing the enormous growing volumes of transactional data within the enterprise), Big Interaction Data (describing new types of data such as Social Media data that are impacting the enterprise), and Big Data Processing (describing new ways of processing data such as Hadoop). If you can imagine companies having problems with business-critical master data such as customers, products, accounts, and locations at current data volumes, now that problem is compounded many-fold with the growth into Big Data. That’s where MDM and Data Quality come in as the fundamental solutions. So, why is MDM and Data Quality such a big deal for Big Data? (more…)
