HIPPO is designed to help Informatica customers meet today’s key Data Integration challenge: how can operational efficiency gains be made to enable ever growing data volumes to be processed within static or shrinking IT budgets. HIPPO helps you lower your costs of building and sustaining applications by giving you the information you need to increase performance, lower operational costs, provide better support for client projects and improve the productivity of your development teams.

HIPPO is designed to be used by Informatica Administrators, Developers, Infrastructure teams and Support Engineers to enable them to optimize the productivity of their environment, improve the PowerCenter development lifecycle, distribute shared infrastructure costs accurately and maximize the return on their investment in PowerCenter. 


HIPPO allows Informatica users to monitor and analyze their entire Informatica environment, including production, test, development and grid environments all from a single web browser to focus on gaining efficiencies and improving business results. It does this by profiling how Informatica processes are performing and consuming resource: not just in terms of Informatica itself, but also in terms of CPU, Memory, Disk, I/O, Database performance and network latency.


  • HIPPO is competitively priced and offers a return on investment in 12 months or less.
  • HIPPO can be installed as a Proof of Concept at your location.
  • HIPPO is available by subscription or by full license.

  • HIPPO’s unique visualization of resource usage across your environment enables you to maximize the efficiency of your schedules, meet the Big Data challenge and get more from your Informatica and infrastructure investment.
  • HIPPO Visualizes your concurrency model & resource availability on a single screen enabling you to see which mappings run during periods of constrained and available CPU and Memory enabling you to make better scheduling decisions.
  • HIPPO’s single view of your Informatica estate means you can drill down from the operational “big picture” all the way to individual transformations, Mappings, Sessions and Workflows to understand their performance profile, resource usage trends and cost.
  • HIPPO enables development teams to optimize performance avoiding costly rework later in the project lifecycle.
  • HIPPO’s great set of reports provide, for example, a project by project breakdown of usage costs across your Informatica environment, the identification of sessions which fail to meet performance thresholds such as CPU & Memory consumption, Time to First row and Caches which spill to disk.
  • HIPPO’s Activity Monitor gives you a single place to view all active Workflows and Sessions in your environment and to drill down into an unlimited amount of execution history.
  • HIPPO’s trend graphs over days, weeks, months and years reduce the likelihood and cost of production issues by providing advance warning of performance problems or opportunities early in the cycle.
  • HIPPO's Capacity planning features to help you control costs by enabling informed decisions on which type of additional capacity will be required and when.
