Informatica Blog - Mon, 10/08/2018 - 19:15

A significant number of companies have elected to start with a focus on the regulators. That is, to answer the broad question of: how can I demonstrate I am in control of the personal data I store a...

Talend Blog - Thu, 10/04/2018 - 17:17
The cloud is not “just someone else’s computer”, even though that meme has been spreading so fast on the internet. The cloud consists of extremely scalable data centers with highly optimized and automated processes. This makes a huge difference if you are talking about the level of application software. So what is “cloud-native” really? “Cloud-native” is more than just a marketing slogan. And a “cloud-native application” is not simply a conventionally developed application which is running on “s...

A New World Order: From Debits and Credits to Policies and Catalogs

Informatica Blog - Tue, 10/02/2018 - 19:15

Some specific industries such as Banking or Health Sciences had already considered this type of compliance at the core of their digital transformation. But as the CCPA ap...
