· "We are living in a world of rapid technology innovation and data overload," said Todd Goldman, vice president and general manager for enterprise data integration at Informatica. "Big data is changing how we live, work and compete, but to unlock the full potential of your information, you need to think bigger than big data. You can't succeed in a data-centric world if you can't ensure all your data - 'big' or not - is clean, safe and integrated, which is the purpose of a next-generation data integration infrastructure."
