GigaSpaces partnered with Informatica to deliver an Intelligent Digital Integration Hub across cloud, on-premise and hybrid environments.

The solution unifies Informatica's Hybrid Integration Platform including: Integration Hub and Cloud iPaaS, together with GigaSpaces InsightEdge in-memory real-time analytics and machine learning platform within the Digital hub.

Applications across the enterprise can now leverage timely, trusted data and real-time analytic insights for faster, smarter business decisions. Informatica Integration Hub uses a publish/subscribe model and allows self-service consumption of data by any user or application. GigaSpaces InsightEdge, as a transactional and analytical processing speed layer, analyzes any data model (text, objects, documents, images, etc.) and enriches the hub with event-driven machine and deep learning capabilities on both mutable streaming and hot data simultaneously with historical data on data lakes. These insights can instantly be shared with applications and existing systems.

The solution leverages Informatica's Enterprise Data Catalog (EDC), powered by the Informatica CLAIRE engine, to provide machine-learning-based discovery to scan, catalog and detect data assets across the enterprise.

Together, GigaSpaces and Informatica Intelligent Digital Integration Hub is used to:

- Accelerate hybrid data integration and analytics on any data model including structured, unstructured and semi-structured data

- Orchestrate complex transactional and analytical processing with a persistence layer that can be used as a transient or as a sync layer

- Facilitate self-service consumption of data and insights

- Decouple source and target applications, allowing easy consumption by users and reduce load on sources systems

- Enable multi-latency integration with advanced orchestration and scheduling for batch and API's driven data

- Support extreme performance and rich machine and deep learning capabilities; including Spark, numeric computing via Tensor and loading of pretrained Caffe or Torch models, as well as various NLP, OCR, Text Classification, image recognition and other libraries

- Integrate multiple clouds, new enterprise applications, in-memory speed layer and data lakes, with existing systems

- Provide visibility, control, monitoring, and alerting across all data workflows

Benefits for the enterprise include:

- Superb user experience: with low latency response times, especially at critical traffic peaks

- Optimized TCO: allowing the system of record applications to be planned for standard usage and not peaks

- High agility: microservices architecture to rapidly develop and deploy new applications

- 24/7 always on: Market proven, high availability for enterprise grade mission critical applications

- Real-time Insights to Action: Analytics and machine learning run on live mutable data and simultaneously on historical data for time-sensitive decisions and actions

Ronen Schwartz, SVP and GM, Cloud, Big Data, Data Integration, at Informatica. "Our integration with GigaSpaces InsightEdge enables our customers to reduce the cost and complexity of data and APIs while achieving high performance at large scale."

Additional applications which are fueled by the solution include real-time fraud detection, live risk management, predictive maintenance, dynamic pricing, personalized recommendations, supply chain management and more.

"Together Informatica and GigaSpaces, are powering stronger, innovative enterprises as they continue to add new data-driven applications to remain competitive," said Yoav Einav, VP of Products for GigaSpaces. "The Intelligent Digital Integration Hub tames complex hybrid integration environments with extreme performance, agility, availability and the ability to deliver real time actionable insights, helping customers optimize operations, improve regulatory compliance and enhance customer experiences."
