Topic: PowerCenter Connectivity to Data Warehouse Appliance


Over the years, enterprise data has been stored in disparate silos and for several of the data sources. These data sources contain legacy information that may be valuable and which will need to be included as part of the overall business intelligence and analytics process. For PowerCenter to integrate with such data warehouse appliances there is a need for adapters. Some key features provided by our adapters are:


  • Lower development costs by supporting rapid impact assessment and deployment as changes arise, through automated metadata capture
  • Prevent unauthorized access to sensitive data by accessing data directly, rather than extracting files and transferring them to less-secure environments
  • Maximize return on investments by supporting rapid access to standards-based sources and targets, enhancing business agility


Agenda for this session includes:

  • Need for Data ware house appliances and Rainbow of options in PowerCenter
  • Achieve high performance with PowerExchange GreenPlum
  • Bulk loading capabilities with PowerExchange Netezza
  • Simply data loading process with PowerExchange for TPT
  • Troubleshooting Guidelines
  • Q & A
