Informatica Data Quality Review

Solid Integration tool. GUI is poor and needs improvement.

Valuable Features

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.

Improved Data Quality, after we run the IDQ session which we customize for each client (Developed custom business rules in IDQ).

Previous Solutions

Earlier we used ODI and IDPQ, but the new client wants the development in Informatica.

Initial Setup

It was a ittle complex, as there are post installation services you need to create in Informaitca Administrator.

Implementation Team

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).

Other Advice

Informatica Data Quality is a solid Integration tool.
