Maximizing Your Return on Data
Never before have we experienced such a profound transformative change in computing,
which is taking the notion of “the information age” to a level unimagined even a
few years ago. Cloud, social and mobile computing are changing everything in the
world of data, and leading to the massive rise in variety, complexity and volume
now dubbed “big data”. Capitalizing on the business value of big data while avoiding
unforeseen cost, complexity, and risk has become critical to your future success.
In this session, you will...
- Uncover disciplines for measuring and continuously maximizing your “return on data”,
defined as the value of data divided by the cost of data
- Understand the impact of these megatrends on how you create, manage and utilize
- Examine the multiple facets of the big data phenomenon, and its impact on your organization
- Learn about the latest release of the Informatica Platform, Informatica 9.5, and
the capabilities necessary to ensure that you don’t merely cope in the era of big
data, but that you thrive.
Eliminate SaaS Sprawl with Cloud Data Integration
According to IDC, software as a service (SaaS) spending will grow by 105% between
2011 and 2015. Is your organization ready? Do you have a plan to integrate data
between cloud and on-premise applications? What about cloud to cloud? Welcome to
the world of “hybrid IT.” In this session, you will learn...
- Why data integration has been recognized as top barrier to cloud computing adoption
- The primary cloud data integration and data quality use cases
- How to balance the need for speed with the need for strong IT governance and control
- How Informatica Cloud can enable maximum cloud application adoption and success.
Lean Data Management – Delivering on SLAs
Big data is causing exponential growth. This growth is not only pushing the limits of hardware and storage, but it is also adversely impacting application and data warehouse performance. Performance service level agreements (SLAs) are harder to meet when dealing with larger data sets. While smart partitioning strategies can boost application performance by making the active or frequently data optimally available, archiving strategies can phase out inactive data keeping the warehouses lean. In this session, you will learn...
- Approaches to lean data management
- Archiving and partitioning strategies to improve query performance, shrink backup/recovery windows, and significantly lower database/infrastructure costs
- Customer success stories.
Agile BI – Delivering Intelligence Faster
To stay competitive and keep up with the rapid pace of change, the business needs new data and fresh insights on short notice. However, many IT organizations struggle to deliver the data and reports that the business needs and can trust. The backlog of requests and complaints from business users just keep growing, as IT is handcuffed by an inflexible, outdated data integration and analytics infrastructure. To address their unmet needs, the business often turns to shadow IT teams to create custom one-off solutions, which only exacerbates the complexity in the infrastructure. IT needs to embrace agile business intelligence and data integration architecture and techniques to accelerate the process with early business involvement, meet both analytical and real-time operational requirements, and deliver on the fast changing demands of the business. In this session, you will learn...
- Drivers behind the need for greater BI (business intelligence) agility
- Barriers to achieving agile BI
- New approaches to architecting, implementing and operationalizing a responsible, flexible data architecture to deliver agile BI
- Techniques for managing the convergence of the analytical and operational worlds.
