Data transformation and test management features allow us to work with unstructured data

What is our primary use case?

We provide services mostly to banks. I am currently working at a bank where they are using Data Masking and Data Transformation at the same time. They are an old core banking system, which is COBOL, and it's unstructured data. We are using Data Transformation to transform and structure the data into a relational format. We use the test data management to create test data from the relational data. To create the test data, we mask using different techniques for the discovery. After that, we re-transform the relational data into unstructured data to be fed into the core banking system.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable feature is data discovery. This is the most exciting feature for all of the banks."
  • "I have encountered some issues using the substitution, which is one of the techniques of data masking."

What other advice do I have?

It's good as a solution. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

Offers good structure and platform masking features but data discovery needs improvement

What is our primary use case?

We have a lot of applications with different functionality. We use Informatica mainly for sensitivity tests. 

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are the structure masking and platform masking.  I also like that for Salesforce integration we can use Informatica Cloud. For on-premise, normally we do the SQL server database.

What needs improvement?

I don't see where it has much room for improvement. 

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been working with this solution for the last two years. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We have a team of 10 users on-premise. Their roles are doing the initial analysis for identification. We don't currently have plans to increase usage.
