Why bother with single solutions to your cloud analytics issues when one integrated package can do the trick. Informatica hopes to simplify and accelerate deployment of cloud analytics with the introduction of a solution that combines cloud data integration, data warehousing, data management, and visual analytics, along with Tableau and powered by Amazon Web Services (AWS).
“This integrated initiative will accelerate data democratization and empower customers to more smoothly deploy and scale a robust, modern analytics platform in the cloud,” says Mark Jewett, vice president, product marketing, Tableau. “Combining the capabilities of Informatica, Tableau, and AWS in a Quick Start solution will help organizations save time on configuring their analytics platform, allowing them to focus more on addressing critical business problems.”
Adds Ronen Schwartz, senior vice president and general manager, cloud, big data, and data integration, Informatica: “Bringing together three industry leaders to provide a best-in-class integrated analytics solution will help our customers further their analytics modernizations and leverage the power of the cloud. In addition to this new cloud analytics solution, our ongoing support for AWS includes a recent deployment on AWS GovCloud as well as expanding our data governance relationship with them. This continued momentum has allowed Informatica to bring leading solutions to our shared customers.”
The solution is centered around Informatica’s industry-leading integration platform as a service (iPaaS), Informatica Intelligent Cloud Services , the Informatica Enterprise Data Catalog (EDC), and Tableau. This AWS Quick Start solution automatically deploys and configures Informatica, Tableau Server, Amazon Redshift, and Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) solutions on AWS so that users can quickly deploy and begin using a free trial of the solution from Informatica and Tableau, on AWS, anywhere in the world.
Further strengthening this collaboration is the tight integration between Informatica and Tableau, which includes a powerful plug-in for Informatica EDC within Tableau Server that enables a streamlined user experience to accelerate analytics initiatives. The Informatica EDC provides a machine-learning-based discovery engine that automatically scans data assets across the enterprise, catalogs them, and indexes those assets for enterprise-wide discovery.
