Informatica Application ILM

For a large organisation that needs to carefully monitor and manage data usage, ILM is a very effective tool. ILM becomes even more useful if you are already set up with Informatica PowerCenter. Informatica Application ILM definitely broadens the use cases of PowerCenter when they are used in an environment together.

Informatica Application ILM

My company currently uses Hadoop for big data management, as well as ParAccel/Matrix databases for storing the data. The combo is fairly effective, and the only reason we are exploring ILM is because of our use of other Informatica products, and looking to build in either synergies between the technologies, or cost savings by bundling all our licensing through one vendor (Informatica)

  • Tracking the usage of specific brackets of data across the entire organisation has now become possible.
  • The team was already using PowerCenter. Therefore, using ILM was a very apt decision that allowed easier management of data at the organisation level.
