Informatica Big Data Edition : Review

Big data
Big data

Informatica is a very good commercial data integration suite founded in 1993 and It is the market share leader in data integration (Gartner Dataquest)

  1. The company’s sole focus is data integration.
  2. It has a cloud version
  3. It has quite a big package for enterprises to integrate their systems, cleanse their data and can connect to a vast number of current and legacy systems.
  4. Its very expensive, will require training some of your staff to use it and probably require hiring consultants as well.
  5. Its very fast and can scale for large systems.
  1. Not yet mature for Big data ( complex installation ) , infact Informatica surprisingly needs a complex installation, informatica modules needs t be installed in each Node, which worry many clients as they can’t easily scale their clusters, also some clients mentioned the complexity of handling Kerberos with Informatica.
  2. Informatica is struggling to adopt new Big data technologies ( i.e SPARK )
  3. It has some incompatibilities with Open source market which is basically the core of the actual Big data.
