Whether migrating to or from Informix, consolidating Informix instances, or executing any data integration project with Informix, many organizations have learned just how challenging it is to build data integration solutions from the ground up


Coding custom integration logic requires Informix domain expertise, and whenever integration requirements include access to data managed by packaged applications, passed via message-oriented middleware, or exposed as Web services, additional hard-to-find technical talent will be needed increasing cost and risk. Add the recurring costs needed to maintain this logic as the underlying Informix database structures change, as the surrounding applications are enhanced, and as the supporting IT environment evolves and the drawbacks of this approach become clear.


PowerExchange for Informix overcomes these obstacles.


It lets PowerCenter directly read and write Informix databases on behalf of PowerCenter without depending on intermediate message queues or staging tables. Data is delivered with the kind of reliability that can come only with an integrated platform. There's no code to develop, so integration interfaces can be developed faster and more reliably, whether they require access to message-oriented middleware, mainframe, midrange, or relational databases, service-oriented architecture and Web services, or packaged applications. One family of products, using one set of skills, accesses them all.


The advantages of PowerExchange don't stop there. Each member of the PowerExchange family automatically captures relevant metadata from its sources and targets and shares it with the rest of the Informatica platform. Proposed changes can be assessed rapidly and implemented with confidence, and the same metadata can help resolve questions of data lineage that often arise in audit and compliance exercises one more advantage of the Informatica data integration platform.

  • Provides reliable, once-only delivery with unmatched resilience to failure via tight PowerCenter integration and transactional Informix access.
  • Supports compliance initiatives during development and execution through strict enforcement of Informix security constraints and data encryption.
  • Enhances organizational agility, lowers costs and improves time to- results by eliminating costly manual coding and reducing requirements for Informix skills.
  • Delivers high performance and robust operation thanks to native Informix interfaces.
