DATAVERSITY has partnered with Informatica to bring you a series of White Papers to help educate you on their company, products, and how their solutions fit in the world of data management. Check out these three white papers in the series that fit under the topic of “Big Data.”
Avoiding a Big Data “Epic Fail”
The IT world is being reshaped by three technology megatrends. Cloud computing, social computing, and
mobile computing are delivering astounding new value. But they’re also forcing organizations to adopt new
approaches to IT while aligning new realities and demands with their traditional processes and infrastructure.
These megatrends are redefining the “where,” “what,” and “how” of the computer industry and are fueling
explosive growth in big data—larger volumes, greater variety, and faster velocity.
- The “where” of computing is moving from on-premise to cloud computing, creating a new wave of data fragmentation and changing the economics of computing.
- The “what” is shifting from transaction processing to “interaction processing”—people interacting via social media and devices interacting via “the Internet of things”—unleashing unprecedented volumes of interaction data.
- The “how” is moving from desktops to mobile devices, empowering users with context-aware and location based services and generating a surge in device and sensor interaction data.

Informatica 9.5 Platform Natively Engages with Hadoop
As predicted in the Ovum report “Informatica’s 2012 strategy”, this year Informatica is going to place strong emphasis on extending its data integration to support Big Data including Hadoop. While other players such as Oracle and IBM have built connectors for exchanging Hadoop data with relational targets, Informatica is the first major data-integration provider to move some of its data-integration capabilities directly inside Hadoop. Ovum expects that Informatica’s move won’t go unanswered for long.
