IDQ integration with Power Centre Designer Repository. On the fly you can move your IDQ artefacts to Power Centre Designer. Later you can use them in a workflow and for scheduling etc.
Improvements to My Organization
Improved Data Quality, after we run the IDQ session which we customize for each client (Developed custom business rules in IDQ).
Room for Improvement
GUI is poor in IDQ
Use of Solution
Over a year
No (Depends upon your design and architect)
Customer Service and Technical Support
Customer Service: Customer service is OKTechnical Support: Technical support is OK
Earlier we used ODI and IDPQ, but the new client wants the development in Informatica.
It was a ittle complex, as there are post installation services you need to create in Informaitca Administrator.
In house team (I was part of the team as an Informatica Administrator and IDQ Developer)
Better data quality
Other Solutions Considered
IBM Data Stage, IBM Information Analyzer and IBM Quality Stage (More cost Centric). Oracle ODI (Oracle Data Integrator) and ODPQ (Oracle Data Quality and Profiling).
Informatica Data Quality is a solid Integration tool.
