BRASILIA, Brazil and REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Aug 8, 2012 (Menafn - GlobeNewswire via COMTEX) --News Facts:
-- Informatica Corporation
INFA, the world's number one independent
provider of data integration software, today announced that Universidade
Estacio de Sa, Brazil's second largest private university, has put the
Informatica Platform at the center of its new modernized information
infrastructure servicing almost 250,000 students across 75 campuses.
-- Projected to minimize potential financial risks for Estacio, the
Informatica Platform is enabling the university to:
-- Optimize the relationship with its students through improved data
-- Engage in efficient, low-risk data migration to its new Enterprise Campus
-- Integrate newly acquired colleges and universities faster by leveraging a
standardized platform for nearly all data integration projects.
-- Substantial potential financial risk minimization is being realized
through Informatica's elimination of inaccurate data, including:
-- Improving the collection of tuition fees - In solving the problem of
inaccurate address and identification number data, Informatica Data
Quality, a component of the Informatica Platform, is helping the
university capture monthly fees that might not have otherwise been
collected due to wrongly addressed mailings.
-- Reducing the amount of incorrectly delivered teaching materials - With
Informatica Data Quality, this error rate is expected to reach zero in
the next few months as data quality initiatives unfold, thus eliminating
potential financial impacts.
-- The Informatica Platform is also helping Estacio migrate from a legacy
student information system to PeopleSoft's Enterprise Campus solution,
minimizing the data migration risk and enabling the university to
capitalize fully on its new enterprise resource planning investment.
-- Additionally, Informatica will help strengthen Estacio's ability to
expand its strategy of growing through acquisitions by providing the
capability to integrate and ensure the quality of huge volumes of data
from acquired institutions, regardless of data source or format.
-- Estacio is working closely with Informatica Professional Services across
its various data integration, data quality and data migration projects.
