The ongoing explosion in cloud applications means that organizations now have vast amounts of data in numerous places and there is no easy, or automatic, way to ensure data quality across all data sources and types. Positioned as a leader in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS), Worldwide for three years in a row, and in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Data Quality Tools for the ninth consecutive year, Informatica® is now offering an innovative, new approach to improving data quality designed specifically to turn this situation around.
Informatica today introduced Informatica Cloud Data Quality Radar, an innovative, self-service data quality solution for business users. In today’s business environments, data owners and users must be actively involved in keeping data clean, regardless of where it resides. Informatica Cloud Data Quality Radar is the first cloud-based solution that will empower business users and data analysts to easily identify, fix and monitor the quality of data within and across all of their applications, cloud or on-premise; thereby realizing faster and better business outcomes.
Informatica Cloud Data Quality Radar helps drive:
• Increased usefulness of data – Business users can now utilize a single, automated solution to identify and prioritize data quality issues in their applications, using interactive dashboards to visualize current status, trends and developing hotspots. This helps ensure that data is in the right shape to drive such business outcomes as deeper customer engagement, improved cross- and up-sell activities, better customer segmentation, increased marketing effectiveness and sales team productivity.
• Reduced reliance on IT – Users leverage automatic, content-driven assessment to accurately identity and rapidly resolve their most pressing data quality issues without always turning to IT for help.
• Simplified administration and lower overhead – Instead of a collection of point solutions, organizations gain a single, easy-to-use, self-service data quality tool across all departments, applications and deployment models, 100 percent in the cloud and delivered as an economically priced subscription service.
• Data privacy and security – Because the data is not staged on individual machines for remediation, it does not get replicated.
Along with other innovations, Informatica will showcase Informatica Cloud Data Quality Radar at Salesforce’s annual event, Dreamforce, October 4-7, in booth #1711 in Moscone South and at the Developer Forest in Moscone West, in San Francisco, Calif. Informatica Cloud Data Quality Radar for Salesforce will be available in November on a subscription basis. Salesforce users are invited to take advantage of a free 30-day trial offer, available at http://www.informatica.com/DQRadarTrial. Its use requires no installation, no detailed configuration and no specialized data quality expertise. Starting in 2017, Informatica Cloud Data Quality Radar will integrate closely with other business applications, including such widely used applications as Marketo and NetSuite.
