We’re very excited to share news that we’ve collaborated with Informatica to release the Informatica Connector for BigML. This connector was debuted yesterday at Informatica’s Data Mania event, where BigML was named a winner of their Connect-a-Thon competition!
The connector, which is being made available through the Informatica Cloud Marketplace, can be used to access, blend, structure and connect data from any app in the Informatica Cloud directly to a source in BigML through the use of a simple visual wizard flow. This opens the gates to data stored in your ERP, CRM, HR, Marketing Automation, Business Intelligence, Procurement, Financial or many other mission-critical enterprise systems from marquee vendors (e.g. Salesforce, Oracle, NetSuite, Workday, Birst, Concur, Coupa etc.) to be pulled directly into BigML. This of course augments our current source import options such as pulling from local files, using web links for remote resources and/or our web-based connectors with Dropbbox and the recently announced Google Cloud integration.
In addition, you will be able to use the connector in conjunction with BigML’s API to incorporate actionable models created in BigML into your enterprise applications and services. As you know, creation of such end-to-end machine learning workflows is a critical component for development and deployment of predictive apps. With BigML Private Deployments available either on-premises or in the cloud, BigML is a highly versatile machine learning platform for enterprises of all shapes and sizes; the Informatica Connector makes our offering even more powerful and flexible.
We’ll be sharing more details on the connector and our partnership with Informatica in the near future, so stay tuned. In the interim, feel free to contact us to learn how you can tap into this exciting new functionality today!
