Informatica Tutorial

In this Informatica tutorial, we will show you the step by step process to connect with different data sources. Next, extract data from data source, transform the data using transformations. Last section of this Informatica tutorial covers the creating session and workflow, and load data into the destination with screenshots.

What is Informatica ETL Tool?

Informatica is the Market Leader in ETL tools, and over 5800 enterprises depend on it. The Informatica is mainly used to build powerful business applications for extracting data from Source(s), transforming and loading data into the target(s). In this Informatica tutorial page, we explain everything about this ETL tool.
