Informatica has introduced a new set of solutions and enhancements for intelligent data lake management and enterprise data cataloging to improve regulatory compliance in the era of GDPR. The solutions also feature integration with Hortonworks Atlas and support for Cloudera Altus, expanding Informatica’s coverage across hybrid enterprise deployments, on premises and in the cloud.
The new solutions are being unveiled at Strata this week, where Informatica is also showcasing the latest version of many core components of the Informatica Intelligent Data Platform, powered by the CLAIRE engine, a metadata-driven AI technology. CLAIRE supports the Informatica portfolio and applies machine learning to technical business, operational and usage metadata.
Informatica Compliance Data Lake is a data lake management solution architecture that enables compliance analysts to build compliance reports which is especially important, the company says, with regulations such as the European Union’s GDPR, which will become effective in May 2018. Built on Informatica Intelligent Data Lake, Informatica Big Data Management, Informatica Enterprise Information Catalog and other Informatica technologies, the Compliance Data Lake enables a comprehensive view of compliance-related data from email, social media, instant messages, financial transactions, and other non-traditional sources.
The solution set supports regulatory compliance through intelligent data discovery, optimized data processing, support for collaborative and efficient human workflows, and self-service data preparation with AI and machine learning assisted automation and governance. Informatica delivers pre-built connectors and parsers to collect, process and deliver a variety of application and user data including unstructured data like emails and chats of ever increasing volume, and can deploy the solution in the cloud or on-premises
In addition, Informatica has created GDPR definitions and a dashboard that is part of its security and regulation package to help highlight sensitive information and potential compliance issues, such as PII data moving from one geography to another. Going beyond the need to address GDPR requirements, Schwartz said, Informatica is offering the ability for business users and analysts to look into all the data in an organization through the data map to define rules and manipulation of the data, for example, to ensure that data, is being masked appropriately and to specify which users access certain datasets.
At this point, the company has made its offerings available via subscription — a big step. “Our goal is to enter the public market,” CEO, Chakravarthy says. “We don’t have a timeline yet but were definitely making good progress toward that outcome.”
