In addition, Informatica Enterprise Data Catalog, our intelligent data discovery engine, is now available on the Azure Marketplace. To round this all up, we have exclusive pricing packages for Enterprise Data Warehouse Offloading to Azure. This announcement is the next step in our ongoing strategic partnership to help joint customers accelerate their journey to a modern data estate on Azure.

Native Azure portal integration with streamlined migration to Azure SQL Data Warehouse

Informatica Intelligent Cloud Services (IICS) on Azure optimizes multi-cloud, hybrid environments with a streamlined experience for Azure customers, allowing them to launch IICS with a single-click, directly from the Microsoft Azure portal.


Informatica Intelligent Cloud Services on Azure Preview

IICS on Azure offers best-in-class self-service data integration, migration and synchronization for Azure. Intelligent Cloud Services included in this preview:

  • Data Integration simplifies and accelerates the building of advanced integrations with pre-built mappings, transformations, a data synchronization wizard and an easy-to-use mapping designer.
  • Data Accelerator for Azure, a new cloud service in IICS, redefines how enterprises modernize legacy data warehouse workloads to the cloud. This new cloud service simplifies the transformation, synchronization, and scheduling of data to migrate to Azure SQL DW in four easy steps.


AI-powered data discovery, data lineage and data cataloging for Microsoft Azure customers

The first step to ensure a solid migration strategy is to understand your data landscape. With an intelligent data catalog, you can dramatically reduce the time it takes to find the right data to move to Azure. By understanding downstream dependencies, you reduce the risks of lift-and-shift initiatives. The Informatica Enterprise Data Catalog, an intelligent data discovery engine, catalogs and identifies all types of data and data relationships to accelerate migration. Making it easy to locate data and identify dependencies prior to migration.

With Azure Active Directory (ADD) based authentication, Azure users with a valid work or school ID can preview this streamlined data migration experience right now. Learn more and start your free preview here. General availability of IICS on Azure is scheduled for second-half of 2018.
