Informatica Power Center Data Integration tool is the top in the Gartner’s magic quadrant for the past ten years with high GO LIVE rate compared to any other existing ETL tools in the market.
Informatica Power Center tool supports all the steps of Extraction, Transformation and Load process/life cycle. There are lot of other (third party) products which are offered and created around the Power Center’s ability to connect to different technologies ranging from Legacy systems, Mainframes to CRM, SAP, TIBCO, HP VERTICA to BIG DATA.
Informatica Power Center Developer course, will introduce you to work with the Power Center version 10.x/9.6x to create, execute, as well as administer, monitor and schedule ETL processes and understand how these are used in data mining operations and enterprise data warehouse setup.
Informatica Power Center is an easy to use GUI based tool. It has a simple visual interface which is easy to understand and use. All the components are designed to be used by a simple drag and drop feature for different objects like source, targets, transformations, mapplets, mappings, sessions, worklets and workflows which contribute to the design process flow of the data extraction, transformation and load.
Once the objects are integrated into a package called as workflow, it can be scheduled to run as and when required with rich features to accommodate all the possibilities of a business requirement.
The architecture of Informatica 10x/9x is created based on the SOA (Service Oriented Architecture) which takes care of the data fetch, execution of the transformation and load the data into the target systems in the desired formats like Relational, Flat File, XML, WSDL, PDF, Word (Structured, Semi-Structured, Un-Structured).
Informatica Power Center 10x/9x has the ability to communicate via ODBC sources/plugins/extensions with all major data sources like Mainframe, Big Data, traditional RDBMS (Oracle, SQL Server, Teradata, Netezza, Informix, DB2 etc), NoSQL (Mongo DB, Cassandra etc) Flat Files, XML, TIBCO, WSDL (Via web services) SAP, Salesforce etc) and move/transform data between them based on the need.
The tool’s ability to fetch/transform and load huge volumes of data in a very effective way, with less resource consumption is better than hand coded programs written for specific data movement using PL/SQL procedures, Java, Perl and other languages.
The course covers all topics starting from Data warehouse concepts, Roles and Responsibilities of an ETL developer, Installation & Configuration of Informatica Power Center 10x/9.X, in detailed explanation of transformations with practical examples, performance tuning tips for each transformation (clearly shown and explained), usually asked interview questions, quizzes for each section and assignments for your hands on and in-depth explanation of the Repository Service, Integration Service and other basic Administration Activities.
