Informatica is regulating tighter integrations with its Intelligent Data Management Cloud and Snowflake, a data cloud company, to advance ELT capabilities and offer native support for Snowflake’s Java User Defined Functions (UDF) to enterprise customers.
As a Snowflake Partner of the Year (2020), Informatica claims it has helped hundreds of joint customers manage their data in the cloud with analytics and data governance at scale.
Informatica says this is a milestone in helping large enterprises easily move their data to Snowflake through Informatica’s Intelligent Data Management Cloud and empower data scientists and developers to scale analytics and cloud applications.
“Informatica is a trusted partner, helping our customers with advanced data integration, data governance, and data democratization capabilities,” says Tarik Dweik, Snowflake head of technology alliances. “With the enterprise-grade, mass-ingestion capabilities and the new support for Snowflake’s Java UDFs that Informatica is bringing to the Snowflake Data Cloud, our customers will have the ability to load data from nearly anywhere.”
Dweik adds: “More importantly, this integration will empower more users with data science and data engineering skills to leverage their data to drive positive business outcomes.”
Informatica leverages the power of Snowflake Data Cloud to make it easier for customers by adding new capabilities:
Cloud-Native Mass Ingestion to Load and Synchronize Data into Snowflake from Disparate Application Sources
Informatica enables customers to leverage the Snowflake Data Cloud with ELT use-cases with cloud-native, mass ingestion service to rapidly load and synchronise data from applications such as SAP, Salesforce, NetSuite, Zendesk, Microsoft Dynamics 365, Workday, Marketo, ServiceNow, and Google Analytics into Snowflake via a application synchronisation service to drive analytics and applications built on Snowflake.
With Informatica’s new Intelligent Data Management Cloud platform, customers can transform, cleanse, and govern this application data into Snowflake without any hand-coding or having to assemble an end-to-end solution from disparate systems.
Native Support for Snowflake’s Java UDF for Large-Scale Enterprise Adoption
Informatica’s native support for Snowflake’s Java UDF via the Intelligent Data Management Cloud is said to drive adoption among Java developers and data scientists who can easily plug their codes into the ELT pipelines and derive the following benefits in their data management process:
Simplicity – Use the language of choice to write the code and still have it on a single platform and deploy it with Informatica pipelines and mappings.
Productivity – Improve team productivity by using the tools they are already familiar with. Open it for different types of users, such as data scientists and data engineers.
Scalability – Benefit from Snowflake compute power and scale.
Rik Tamm-Daniels, Informatica vice president, strategic ecosystems and technology, concludes: “2021 will be the year of intelligent data management defined by the ability to manage data across disperse systems, applications and multiple clouds.”
“We are a proud partner of Snowflake and are excited at the possibilities our partnership will bring to customers with the advanced ELT capabilities Informatica is announcing today and our support for the new Snowflake Java UDF capabilities,” Tamm-Daniels ends.
