How has it helped my organization?

It forced the organization to a more extensive and deeper profiling of data. We got a better understanding of our data, which also helped the startup of MDM projects.

I have used this solution for almost a year.

How is customer service and technical support?

Informatica’s support for the entire platform is very good and this product is no exception.

Which solutions did we use previously?

I don’t have such information. Generally speaking, with Informatica you have to be extremely careful of what are you buying because sometimes the licensing model is a bit tricky.

Take extreme care in developing an effective strategy to use the sections of the product that you need.
