Informatica CEO Anil Chakravarthy Discusses How Modern Organizations Leverage ‘Data 3.0’ To Power Business
C-Level Executives Rely on Informatica to Transform Businesses through Data
Today, a data revolution is underway. Customers are feeling it. Business executives are feeling it. Every employee, whether they work for a Fortune 500 organization or an SMB, wants to use data as their strategic advantage. Informatica calls that revolution ‘Data 3.0’ because it is driving new business models and transforming businesses. Data can be overwhelming since it resides in the cloud, applications, databases and tools, both inside and outside the organization. Companies are desperate to untangle and clean up the complex web of data they have built over many years. Organizations are looking for integrated data management solutions to realize business value and help satisfy the increasing expectations and personalization around customer experience.
Informatica, the world’s No. 1 provider of data management solutions, today showcased at Informatica World 2016 – how ‘Data Powers Business’ and unveiled the data management solutions of the future. Anil Chakravarthy, Informatica’s chief executive officer, told the audience of nearly 3,000 that the future of data is here now. The theme of ‘Data Powers Business’ was echoed at the conference by more than 110 customers and partners in keynotes and breakout sessions.
“Business and IT leaders need more than just best-in-class products right now to gain a competitive advantage and stay one step ahead of the competition,” said Chakravarthy. “They are looking for data solutions to address their business challenges, which include increasing customer loyalty, ensuring security, as well as driving business innovation and transformation in an increasingly competitive global world.”
