Capgemini announced that Informatica is now part of the Business Data Lake ecosystem developed by Capgemini and Pivotal. Customers worldwide will now be able to leverage Informatica’s data integration software, in addition to Pivotal’s advanced big data, analytics and application software, and Capgemini’s industry and implementation expertise. Informatica will deliver certified technologies for Data Integration, Data Quality and Master Data Management (MDM) to help enterprises distill raw data into actionable insights.
The Business Data Lake which was originally developed by Capgemini and Pivotal in December 2013 is designed to provide a unified approach to information management, reporting and integration. The inclusion of Informatica will add several new capabilities to the Big and Fast Data architecture including:
- Hundreds of high-speed connectors and pre-built transformations that parse, integrate and cleanse data to automatically distill raw data into actionable insights
- Visual development environment, reusable business rules, and flexible deployment models that accelerate the implementation of production-ready data pipelines up to five times faster
- Data quality and end-to-end data lineage to ensure data can be trusted, and
- MDM to create authoritative, 360-degree view of relationships among business-critical data.
This widened ecosystem will help customers reduce implementation time, risk and complexity, and also deliver real-time predictive analytics, business agility and cost reduction. It will enable enterprises to leverage open source technology, industry leading software, and open Cloud-based deployments for both on-premise and public and private cloud environments.
