In this Informatica tutorial, we will show you the step-by-step process of connecting with different data sources. Next, extract data from the data source, and transform the data using transformations. The last section of this covers the creating session and workflow and loads 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 this complete data integration solution. This business intelligence tool is mainly used to build powerful business applications for data extraction from Source(s), transforming and loading data into the target(s). This page explains everything about this data integration tool or ETL tool. Use this Informatica to learn all its features.
The Power Center Client contains different applications or tools that help to design Mappings and Mapplets. Use this PowerCenter client to create a Session and WorKflow.
Informatica Tutorial Introduction
This data integration tool is a complete data integration solution provided by Oracle to perform data extraction from database management systems, perform data cleansing to process data, and load it into data warehousing or target database.
This is an introduction to this Informatica, which covers the installation of the data integration tool, configuring Powercenter, Workflows, etc.
The PowerCenter application allows to load or extract data from multiple sources (Source Qualifier) or data warehouses. Next, transform the data as per the business requirements (transformation). And loads the processed data into the destination table (Target Designer).
