Informatica Power Center Data Integration tool is the top in the Gartner’s magic quadrant for the past ten years with high GO LIVE rate compared to any other existing ETL tools in the market.

Informatica Power Center tool supports all the steps of Extraction, Transformation and Load process/life cycle. There are lot of other (third party) products which are offered and created around the Power Center’s ability to connect to different technologies ranging from Legacy systems, Mainframes to CRM, SAP, TIBCO, HP VERTICA to BIG DATA.

Informatica Power Center Developer course, will introduce you to work with the Power Center version 10.x/9.6x to create, execute, as well as administer, monitor and schedule ETL processes and understand how these are used in data mining operations and enterprise data warehouse setup.

Informatica Power Center is an easy to use GUI based tool. It has a simple visual interface which is easy to understand and use. All the components are designed to be used by a simple drag and drop feature for different objects like source, targets, transformations, mapplets, mappings, sessions, worklets and workflows which contribute to the design process flow of the data extraction, transformation and load.

Once the objects are integrated into a package called as workflow, it can be scheduled to run as and when required with rich features to accommodate all the possibilities of a business requirement. 

The architecture of Informatica 10x/9x is created based on the SOA (Service Oriented Architecture) which takes care of the data fetch, execution of the transformation and load the data into the target systems in the desired formats like Relational, Flat File, XML, WSDL, PDF, Word (Structured, Semi-Structured, Un-Structured).

Informatica Power Center 10x/9x has the ability to communicate via ODBC sources/plugins/extensions with all major data sources like Mainframe, Big Data, traditional RDBMS (Oracle, SQL Server, Teradata, Netezza, Informix, DB2 etc), NoSQL (Mongo DB, Cassandra etc) Flat Files, XML, TIBCO, WSDL (Via web services) SAP, Salesforce etc) and move/transform data between them based on the need.

The tool’s ability to fetch/transform and load huge volumes of data in a very effective way, with less resource consumption is better than hand coded programs written for specific data movement using PL/SQL procedures, Java, Perl and other languages.

The course covers all topics starting from Data warehouse concepts, Roles and Responsibilities of an ETL developer, Installation & Configuration of Informatica Power Center 10x/9.X, in detailed explanation of transformations with practical examples, performance tuning tips for each transformation (clearly shown and explained), usually asked interview questions, quizzes for each section and assignments for your hands on and in-depth explanation of the Repository Service, Integration Service and other basic Administration Activities. 

Who this course is for:

  • Software Developers
  • Analytics Professionals
  • BI/ETL/DW Professionals
  • Mainframe Developers and Architects
  • Individual Contributors in the field of Enterprise Business Intelligence

  1. Donny Phan

    Super practical. Lessons are catered towards anyone looking to find work in this industry. It felt very comprehensive and gave me a broad understanding of the programming spectrum

  2. Madhav raj Verma

    Thanks for your great effort. i am fully satisfied with this course the way you teach and your explanation are very clear ,The content you provide in your course no one can do this at this price.

  3. Sachin Gupta

    I really didn’t want to leave a low rating as Angela is a great teacher. The 1st half of this course was terrific. The 2nd half was terrible. Under the justification of “teaching students how to figure things out on their own”, pretty much all videos and all explanations were dropped. You were just told what to do, given links to documentation and told to figure it out on your own. I understand doing that to some degree, but to revert to that entirely for nearly half the content barely makes this a course. It’s just a list of things for you to learn, then you’re left on your own to learn them. The 2nd half was so bad, especially the data science component, that I didn’t bother finishing the course.

    Amazing 40 days course.
    Angela is a great teacher.
    The other 60 days are all about web developement, interacting with web pages, on your own with little to no explanations. I did not expect that at all. I wanted to learn more about software and scripting.
    This left me disappointed , confused and i started to doubt myself. Not a fun experience after the amount of effort i’v put in this course.

    Exercices format and explanations for the first 40 days were worth it tho.

  5. Ben K

    Not just an introduction to python, but really helps you learn fundamental aspects of python and coding in general. Some parts may require some knowledge on the subject (data science comes to mind) and there is quite some web development in the course. So, a few areas were not completely to my liking (I would have liked to see it done differently), but this course deserves the 5 stars in my opinion.

  6. Omid Alikhel

    I found the method a bit difficult when a code is written and then changed back to something different, with no enough explanation of how something happened and where it came from or a step by step explanation of why something is happening, i have no doubt in the instructors talent, but we are beginners!

  7. Devang Jain

    The course is not updated and most of the solution codes don’t work and there are no video solutions towards the end

  8. Szymon Kozak

    I think that the course tutor is really good in giving right information to learn at the right time. Thanks to this fact, my understanding of coding in python after 29 days of learning is above my expectations.

  9. Begoña Ruiz Diaz

    Ha sido la mejor elección que podría haber hecho.

  10. Vaibhav Sachdeva

    I want to thank Angela for making such an amazing course. It really helped me explore more things with python.
