    Thai Dao, Solutions Lead, Financial Services, Informatica
    Whether ensuring financial solvency, securing personal client information or ensuring consistent business definitions, data is an integral part of being “Regulation Ready” and data governance requires focus on all aspects of your enterprise data.

    Understanding how secure your data is, is a common requirement of most data-related regulations and creating a data governance framework keeps you from reinventing the wheel with every new regulation. This framework requires industry leading data management, security and metadata technology.

    Informatica specializes in making customers Regulation Ready through robust data solutions; helping financial institutions and insurers secure their data, understand definitions and comply with ever-changing regulations.

  • Building a Regulation-Ready Business with a Holistic Data Governance Practice May 28 2015 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    David Loshin, Principal Consultant, Knowledge Integrity & Robert Karel, VP, Product Strategy & Product Marketing, Informatica
    Organizations across industries face an ongoing challenge to meet the stringent data-related regulatory compliance requirements. The major pain points boil down to accessing quality data that provides the necessary auditability and transparency required by auditors and regulators, and the ability to prove that sensitive data is being protected. Those data related problems present a daunting obstacle for your company to meet current as well as future compliance requirements.

    A holistic, agile data governance program can help companies address the above data challenges and become regulation–ready. A well-designed data governance program delivers the following:

    •Guaranteed access to clean, relevant, trusted and auditable data to create accurate and auditable reports to meet compliance mandates.
    •Improved operational efficiency by enabling a collaborative and repeatable process across key stakeholders
    •Enabling a true data-driven business environment for your organization to drive continued innovations and growth

    Please join us to hear David Loshin, established industry expert in data governance and data quality, and Rob Karel, VP of Strategy and Product Marketing at Informatica to discuss best practices for data governance, how organizations can leverage data governance programs to address existing and future compliance requirements, and how to turn your data governance program into a strategic initiative that drives significant business benefits for your organization.
  • Successful Application Consolidation & Migration: Data Management Best Practices May 28 2015 1:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Philip Russom-Research Director TDWI, Rob Myers-Technical Delivery Manager & Paul Garstang-ILM Specialist Informatica
    According to Gartner, “through 2019, more than 50% of data migration projects will exceed budget and/or result in some form of business disruption due to flawed execution."(1) Furthermore, 1 in 6 large IT projects go over budget by 200%, according to a Harvard Business Review article. It is widely recognized that application migration and consolidation projects are “risky business” – high-ticket items for the corporation, with a scary chance of failing. If you are undertaking any IT modernization or rationalization project, such as consolidating applications or migrating applications to the cloud or ‘on-prem’ application, such as SAP, this webinar is a must-see.

    The webinar is going to shine the light on the critical role that data plays in the success or failure of these projects. Application data consolidation and migration is typically 30% to 40% of the application go-live effort. There is a multitude of data issues that can plague a project like this and lead to its doom, and these are not always recognized and understood early on, which is the biggest problem.

    In this webinar, Philip Russom of TDWI will walk us through the potential data pitfalls a corporation should consider when undertaking an application consolidation or migration project. Philip will share best practices for managing data in order to minimize risks and ensure on-time and on-budget delivery of these projects. Rob will discuss Informatica’s unique methodology and solution to support these best practices. Rob will also share real-life examples on how Informatica is helping customers reduce risks and complete application consolidation and migration projects on budget and on schedule.
