Satmetrix Data Type Reference Overview

Informatica Cloud uses the following data types in data synchronization tasks with Satmetrix:
Satmetrix native data types
Satmetrix data types appear in the Fields tab for Source and Target transformations when you choose to edit metadata for the fields.
Transformation data types
Set of data types that appear in the remaining transformations. They are internal data types based on ANSI SQL-92 generic data types, which Informatica Cloud uses to move data across platforms. Transformation data types appear in all remaining transformations in a data synchronization task.
When Informatica Cloud reads source data, it converts the native data types to the comparable transformation data types before transforming the data. When Informatica Cloud writes to a target, it converts the transformation data types to the comparable native data types.
