Data Warehouse Optimization using Hadoop
Data Warehouse Optimization (DWO), a service based on the combined technologies of Informatica, Appfluent and Cloudera, seeks to balance the value of data against the cost of storage. DWO can improve Online Transaction Processing (OLTP) systems and Data Warehouse (DW) performance whilst reducing total cost of ownership.  In addition, it enables better decision support as all information, including historical data, can be made readily available for analysis.
"The evolving information economy demands that companies become more data-driven in their quest to better know their markets and serve their customers. Being equipped with solutions and services that make it easy to adopt and integrate big data technologies into their existing landscape is paramount to being successful, said Tim Stevens, Vice President, Corporate and Business Development, Cloudera. "Working with leading companies like Capgemini and Informatica, customers have access to a fast-track ensuring they can execute and implement quickly on their big data strategy."
Data Masking
To address the tighter regulation faced by many industries, this new data masking solution allows companies to comply with increasingly stringent data protection laws, whilst allowing faster, more efficient and cheaper data masking, with up to 40 percent cost savings achievable.  
Assuring quality of data remains a priority in the big data world. Scalability and agility are critical as new data-sets come on stream and quality standards vary in accordance with the data source. This highly customizable and scalable SaaS-based solution provides market leading data quality capability, whilst allowing companies to monitor and cleanse data throughout their operations on a pay-per-use model.  
Asset Information Management
Aimed at asset-intensive industries such as energy, utilities, transportation and manufacturing, this solution provides a single trusted source of asset data. It masters core asset data across the life-cycle and enables organizations to improve operational resilience, meet regulatory requirements and optimize asset utilization/maintenance, whilst providing more robust data governance capabilities.
