and not PowerCenter—for Your Modern, Cloud-Native Analytics Environment
Digital transformation changes expectations: better service, faster delivery, with less cost. Businesses must transform to stay relevant, and data holds the answers.
As popular as PowerCenter is, it is not optimized to meet modern cloud data integration requirements. An interim solution, such as re-pointing PowerCenter to the cloud, may seem to be an easy fix. However, this scenario comes with its challenges, including:
As part of migrating legacy databases and on-premises data warehouses to the cloud, overall data management should be designed to meet increased demands for efficiency, performance and lower administrative, operational, and infrastructure costs. However, as popular as PowerCenter is, it is not optimized for the cloud.
It makes sense that organizations planning to modernize their on-premises data warehouses to next-generation cloud data warehouses (CDW) like Snowflake, Microsoft Azure Synapse Analytics, Amazon Redshift, or Google BigQuery should also modernize their data management platform.
That’s why we recommend migrating from PowerCenter to Informatica’s cloud-native data management platform: Informatica Intelligent Cloud Services (IICS). There are a host of reasons why you want a cloud-native data management platform like IICS.
However, with IICS, you would use a modern data warehouse practice of bulk ingesting data as-is into the landing layer. You would then apply transformation and curation logic afterward. The result: a three times faster load due to mass ingestion efficiencies and faster processing with push-down optimization (PDO), leveraging the native system commands and limiting data movement.
These are just some examples of why a cloud-native platform like IICS has distinct advantages over PowerCenter.
