Data Quality : 2011 : April Skip navigation



I would like to use the PowerCenter Data Validation option to perform data valiation and wanted to know if it is a part of the standard Infromatica 9x package or if we need to purchase any additional licences to use this feature.


Any pointers regarding this is highly appreciated.
