On the last day of the Strata Data conference in New York City last week, right after he gave his presentation, I sat down with Paco Nathan, one of the great minds in the field of AI, who has his job title on LinkedIn listed as “Evil Mad Scientist” at Derwen, Inc. Since he’s actually a pretty nice guy, I don’t think I’d agree with the “Evil” part, but the rest pretty much fits. We’ll post the full interview soon, but in many ways, it turned into a discussion of the industry trends we’d seen over...

That’s why companies are liberating data from legacy infrastructures by moving over to the cloud to scale data-driven decision making.

Informatica Blog - Tue, 09/18/2018 - 19:15

If there are two truths in today’s digital world, it’s that data determines success, and that there’s an awful lot of data to manage. And given the latter challenge, I propose a new axiom: Metadata is actually your most valuable asset. This is particularly true as we move into an increasingly multi-cloud world. For many customers I talk to, “the cloud” is already many clouds: the big platforms, like AWS a...
