Return on Investment
- In large implementation projects, the biggest contribution of Informatica has been to standardize the way things are done, get everyone across the organization on the same page in terms of what to expect, how long will the data processing takes, what data quality is to be expected, etc.
- In projects with hundreds of data pipelines, Informatica makes it easy to define data pipelines that can be auto-configured instead of building one for each table. This greatly reduces the development effort and enables flexibility in massive data migration projects.
- Informatica provides connectors to a multitude of database systems. It's connectors with Redshift, SAP/HANA have gone a notch beyond in order to tailor the data as per the needs of target systems and makes use of their strengths.
- A negative impact has been that departments across the boards are highly dependent on the Informatica setup to deliver their data. Given the usually large scope of projects, the lead time for delivery of a solution can be significant causing losses, monetary or otherwise.
