Re: Query: Hadoop's threat to Informatica
Informatica's take on the question:

http://www.informatica.com/hadoop/

My take on the question:

Hadoop is definitely disruptive and there have been times where we've been
able to blow missed data pipeline SLAs out of the water using Hadoop where
tools like Informatica were not able to. But Informatica's take on metadata
management, mixed workloads, and governance are somewhat well taken. It's
not that this stuff isn't doable with Hadoop, but it's that the maturity of
enterprise tools like Informatica are a little farther along.
