Informatica has unveiled an Intelligent Data Management Cloud solution. The platform is designed to help businesses truly innovate with their data on any platform. This includes any cloud, multi-cloud and multi-hybrid for all users across the enterprise, beyond just IT.
Businesses increasingly grapple with dispersed and fragmented data across a multitude of platforms, clouds and siloed systems throughout the enterprise. This makes it extremely complex to connect the right data with the right consumer for digital transformation to take effect. Informatica’s Intelligent Data Management Cloud is AI-powered, end-to-end data management platform offering 200-plus intelligent cloud services. The platform helps organisations reimagine and redefine how they innovate every single business function. From customer experience, eCommerce, supply chain, manufacturing to analytics and data science. To create a world where every organisation’s data is poised for greatness. Furthermore, empowered to deliver outcomes of unprecedented brilliance at a scale never imagined.
“As the heterogeneity of cloud increases—from applications to analytics to infrastructure—what really matters is the data. Not what surrounds the data,” said Amit Walia, CEO, Informatica. “Data proliferation, fragmentation and decentralisation across multiple clouds and hybrid environments is the new normal. Those who connect the right data to the right consumers, with ease and trust will move from digital modernisation to true digital transformation. Informatica’s Intelligent Data Management Cloud is the future of enterprise cloud data management.”
