Lucid’s Collibra-Informatica PowerCenter integration loads the Informatica PowerCenter assets into Collibra DGC. PowerCenter repository tables are used to fetch the metadata about Mappings, Sources, Targets, Lookups, Expressions etc.

Some key features:

  • Detailed Column-level transformation captured as field maps
  • Support for load of expressions, lookups, SQL overrides and sequences
  • Parsing of parameter file/odbc/tnsnames.ora files for capturing source/target connection details
  • Asset extraction can be filtered based on the Informatica Folder that holds the PowerCenter mappings
  • Target community in DGC for loading the assets can be specified
  • Source metadata is mapped to DGC asset types as indicated in the diagram below
  • Modification and Delete of the source (Informatica PowerCenter) metadata are automatically captured and can be used to trigger actions in DGC such as asset status change, asset management workflows, etc.
  • Support for full load and incremental load. Incremental loads can load changes since the last successful execution or from a specific date passed as a parameter
  • Metadata loads can be scheduled or triggered on-demand
  • Connectivity check template available for environment verification
