Many dark data silos were identified and many hidden assets were uncovered

What is our primary use case?

We used Informatica Enterprise Information Catalog to find hidden data assets in our organization. We have data spread across disparate systems like Oracle, SQL Server, Teradata, Redshift, mainframes, etc. Informatica EIC has connectivity to a surprising number of systems and we use this to our advantage creating connections to most of our data sources. We used a 40 node hortonworks cluster and ran the scanners to crawl through our data swamp. It has ran for three days now and we have a fair understanding of our data sources.

What other advice do I have?

The product requires more polishing and hardening. It might take few more releases until the full power and capabilities of this product are unleashed.
