Author: Chuck Ezell | | June 1, 2017
Today, business data represents the core strength and power behind the sustainability and growth of a business. Be it an SME or a multi-national corporation, most business entities rely on data science to assist with decision-making and business processes. Operating a data-driven business is not an easy task. One needs sophisticated software tools to manipulate the numbers in the business and present them in an easy-to-understand manner. Informatica is one of the most recognized solutions for data and is one such option.
What is Informatica?
Informatica is one of the world’s leading integration tools in data management. Last year, Gartner named Informatica an industry leader in its 2016 Magic Quadrant for Metadata Management Solutions. It also appeared on the 2016 Magic Quadrant for Data Integration Tools, having been placed on the list for the 11th consecutive time.
