Informatica Simplifies Data Democratisation With New AI-Powered Solution 


Informatica, an enterprise cloud data management leader, announced a new solution to democratise access to cloud data lakes on Amazon Web Services (AWS), using AWS Lake Formation.

Informatica’s Axon Data Marketplace can now empower business users across any level within an organisation with access to AWS Lake Formation data with the trust and security needed to make informed business decisions.

Informatica Axon Data Governance uses AI and machine learning to automate the tasks of finding data, measuring its quality, and locating the right people to help govern it. Leveraging AI-powered automation through Informatica’s Intelligent Data Management Cloud (IDMC), organisations can cost-effectively scale and democratise data, delivering business insights and value.

“Data is critical to our business success,” said Aravind Jagannathan, Chief Data Officer at Freddie Mac. “With Informatica and AWS, we are on a data and cloud modernization journey where a secure, efficient and trusted data platform built with Informatica’s innovations on AWS helps us to transform the vast amount of data into actionable insights.”
