B2B Data Exchange and Power Exchange

I would like to know the difference between B2B Data Exchange and Power Exchange, in terms of what each of those can do? And also, does B2B Data Exchange work along with Power Center?

    B2B Data Exchange and Power Exchange

    B2B Data Exchange is a product which conatains Data Transformation and Data Excahange.

    If you see in informatica Power Center Designer there is a Unstructured Data Transformation.

    If you want to use that Unstructured Data transformation you have to get separte installer on top of power center.

    So the separate installer is Data transformation.

    I am not sure whethere informatica will provide this installer with separate licence. But if your company got B2B Data Exchange this Data Transformation will be included in that.


    So by this you can handle (read) semi-structured, structured, unstructured files.

    ex. pdf, xml, HIPAA, industry formats. etc.


    The Data transformer will parse or format those files.


    From above description i can say B2B Data Exchange will work along with Power Center.


    Power Exchange is nothing but a extra power to power center.


    These are separate tools to Power Center for extra capabilities.



    Power Exchange for CDC

    Power Exchage for B2B

    Power Exchagne for SAP
