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. This business intelligence tool 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 data integration tool or ETL tool. Use this tutorial to learn all the features of Informatica.

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.
