Big Data Management Tasks

Big Data Management Tasks

Use Big Data Management when you want to access, analyze, prepare, transform, and stream data faster than traditional data processing environments.
You can use Big Data Management for the following tasks:
  • Read from and write to diverse big data sources and targets.
  • Perform data replication on a Hadoop cluster.
  • Perform data discovery.
  • Perform data lineage on big data sources.
  • Stream machine data.
  • Manage big data relationships.
  • Create ephemeral clusters.
Informatica Big Data Management User Guide
