Whitepaper: Cloud Integration for Hybrid IT: Balancing Business Self-Service and IT Control

by InformaticaFeb 06, 2014

It's no longer a question of if your company will be adopting cloud-based solutions, but when and how many. Gartner predicts that by the end of 2016, more than 50 percent of Global 1000 companies will have stored customer-sensitive data in the public cloud. With the proliferation of cloud-based applications, platforms and infrastructure, the potential for data fragmentation and disconnected data silos has grown exponentially. While the benefits of cloud computing have been well documented-scalability, business agility, and cost are usually at the top of the list, from the outset, the push to adopt SaaS applications in the enterprise has come from the business. Individual business units, departments and divisions refuse to accept the timeframes and limited resources of corporate IT, at times even making cloud application purchases on credit cards. But in order to execute cross-functional business processes within these newly deployed SaaS applications, departmental implementations inevitably reach their limits and corporate IT support is required.

The importance of the right approach to cloud data management has emerged as both a business and IT imperative. Historically recognized as one of the top barriers to cloud adoption, if properly managed and maintained, data integration and data quality can actually become critical enablers of cloud computing success. This paper will introduce a cloud data management reference architecture based on the Lean Management principles and outline the key capabilities that are available with Informatica Cloud.

Whitepaper: Putting Big Interaction Data to Work: 10 Real-World Examples

by InformaticaFeb 06, 2014

Big data comes in two flavors-big transaction data and big interaction data. Big transaction data is the steadily growing volume of financial, customer, product, and other information in your organization's ERP system, data warehouses, CRM applications, and other back-office solutions, either on premise or in the cloud. Big interaction data represents interactions of customers, partners, and competitors that affect your organization. It is mostly external to your organization, scattered across the web. Information posted on blogs, discussion forms, team sites, customer service forums, product review Web pages, partner portals, competitor Web sites, enterprise collaboration applications, content management systems and other Internet properties makes up the bulk and the most valuable part of big interaction data. Growing at a phenomenal pace, big interaction data offers immense potential to deliver breakthrough insights and operational efficiencies that can transform business performance, growth, and profitability.

But how? Across industries, organizations are exploring how to extract business value from this fast-growing data source, but they face vexing questions about both technology and the business case for big interaction data projects. Where to start? How to get the really valuable data gems? How to make it all actionable? This white paper outlines real-world examples across industries in which big interaction data is put into action to build differentiation, drive revenue, deepen customer engagement, improve operational efficiency, and deliver better products and services.
