Informatica Axon Valuable Features
Consulting Principal & Founder at Digital Data Consultancy
The features that I have found most valuable are, first of all, that it comes as part of this whole bundle of Informatica tools. So if you've been implementing Informatica MDM across a business, you'd often find it comes with it. It's been thrown in as a sweetener. The adoption of it is often the challenge because as part of your MDM project, governance is seen as something beyond the MDM and is often restrictive. So this tool actually, for the first time, when you talk to data governance teams, gives a holistic view of what a data governance team can do with this tool.
Collecting a knowledge repository, creating a business glossary and visualizing the data lineage are quite fundamental as part of your data governance team's work. Once they see it in Axon, it becomes relatively easy for them to visualize what they have to do. Otherwise, it is often a challenge for them to grasp what their role is and what are they supposed to do. Informatica Axon provides that visualization which helps a lot.
The solution allows the complete governance process, starting from the data quality, those definitions, and it can get the data quality in the EDC.View full review »
