- Informatica’s Data Loader ingestion and integration tool is now available at no additional cost through AWS’s Amazon Redshift console, the data management software company announced Monday.
- The company's data marketplace will also give customers access to AWS’s library of third-party datasets, and Amazon SageMaker will feature the INFACore data science toolkit as a plugin, according to Informatica’s announcement.
- The new capabilities are byproducts of a decade-long partnership between the two companies, according to Rik Tamm-Daniels, Informatica’s GVP of ecosystem alliances and technology, said in an interview with CIO Dive.
Simplifying data management, easing data access and helping companies wrest more value from cloud-based data operations are the objectives targeted by the two companies, according to Tamm-Daniels.
“We think a lot of companies are going to be asking their teams to do more with less, which means more data and analytics responsibilities are going to be pushed out to individual users,” Tamm-Daniels said. “We want to give them the same level of tools and capabilities that central IT typically enjoys.”
Public cloud gives businesses the ability to take in, store and process enormous volumes of data. Mining for insights, efficiency gains and optimization is the key to unlocking value, and it isn’t easy.
Successfully managing data flow and observability can be a struggle, but spreading the wealth is worth extra effort. Data democratization, according to an IDC study released in September, correlates with higher ROI on analytics investments.
Informatica's Data Loader lets AWS customers intake data from on-prem legacy systems, cloud and third-party applications.
The integration of AWS data exchange with Informatica’s marketplace can potentially unlock new source streams.
“What we’ve done enables customers to get a view of their own data assets, the third-party assets they subscribe to, as well as ones they haven't yet subscribed to, but that may be relevant to their domain,” Tamm-Daniels said.
