2019 Informatica EDC Claire Hackathon
Prior to the start of Informatica World 2019, global systems integrators (GSIs) had the opportunity to develop new and compelling solutions that tackled real-world enterprise data management needs in the Informatica CLAIRE Hackathon. Seven GSIs used Informatica Enterprise Data Catalog (EDC) 10.2.x, powered by the metadata-driven intelligence of Informatica CLAIRE™ engine, to create a next-generation solution that fuels data-driven digital transformation.
Capgemini’s Smart Data Onboarding – a recommender system which identifies data for on-boarding new sources into Master Data Management (MDM) models using Informatica EDC’s rich metadata context and relationships, took home the top prize and their big win was revealed on mainstage. Their solution accelerates the design and implementation of MDM projects.
“We congratulate all of the people who are driving the data-driven digital transformation at these amazing organizations,” said Sally Jenkins, executive vice president and chief marketing officer, Informatica. “They demonstrate what it means to disrupt intelligently, and we are honored to be a trusted partner with them on their journeys.”
