Taming the Data Speaker Series Welcomes Kartikanand Narayan

Please join us on Friday, February 7th at 9:30 a.m. in room 3211 in Engineering Building 2 (EB2) for the Taming the Data Invited-speaker Series at NC State University.  Kartikanand Narayan, Senior Manager of Product Quality, Core Technology Group at Informatica Corporation, is the featured speaker.  The title of his talk is “Informatica Vibe – Unleashing the Information Potential.”
Abstract: We live in the Information Age, yet data threatens to overwhelm us. New types of data, new technologies for managing that data, and new ways to use that information to drive business innovation are being introduced on a daily basis. But the complexity of accessing and managing all that data is increasing at an exponential pace. You can’t afford to wait months to implement a new business idea. You can’t afford to recode each time you adopt a new approach or tap into a new type of data. And you don’t want to be crushed by the combined weight of new technologies and your existing infrastructure.
This presentation will give a broad overview on Informatica virtual data machine (VDM) called Vibe and it’s the reason our customers can map once and deploy anywhere—in the cloud or on premise; in databases, applications, middleware, or on a Hadoop cluster; in batch, request/response, or real time. With Vibe, change is not your enemy—change is your competitive weapon.
Narayan is Senior Manager of Product Quality, Core Technology Group at Informatica Corporation where he is responsible for quality and delivery of the Platform that powers the broad suite of data integration products including Informatica Data Analyzer and Symphony Tool framework. Informatica products enable customers to maximize their Return on Data by providing solutions for initiative like enterprise data integration, data virtualization, data quality, data lifecycle management, data exchange and master data management.
Narayan earned a Masters Degree, Software Systems, from Birla Institute of Technology and Science, Pilani, and has over 15 years experience in data service consulting and quality assurance.
This invited-speaker series has been made possible thanks to generous support from Cisco, EMC, Informatica, SAS, the NC State Computer Science ePartners Program and the NC State Engineering Foundation.
