ActiveBatch Informatica Integration Overview

Informatica Cloud’s native scheduler is built specifically to schedule only Informatica processes. PMCMD scripting is highly complex, and custom scripting is time-consuming and error-prone. PowerCenter and Cloud users need a better way to easily automate their workflows end-to-end. And that’s why there’s ActiveBatch: to help users implement advanced scheduling and workflow management across cloud-based and on-premise systems. The result? Less manual intervention and more IT agility.

Build End-to-End Workflows with Informatica Cloud Job StepsActiveBatch provides prebuilt Job Steps for Informatica Cloud and PowerCenter

ActiveBatch’s extension for Informatica Cloud helps users leverage powerful workload automation capabilities such as policies, alerts, and audits for Informatica tasks and workflows. In addition to ActiveBatch's support for Informatica PowerCenter, ActiveBatch users can integrate data across cloud-based workflows, applications, and on-premises systems using Informatica Cloud Job Steps to create complex end-to-end workflows.

ActiveBatch’s advanced workload automation capabilities support the reliable execution of Informatica Cloud tasks with other sophisticated business processes with no need to write any custom code.

Access Full Log Files in Informatica Cloud

ActiveBatch provides the ability to access full logs rather than a limited log file as is customary in Informatica Cloud. This extension contains 12 Job Steps to help simplify ETL processes and automate cloud tasks.

The ActiveBatch Advantage

ActiveBatch’s core features enable many proactive abilities for Informatica Scheduler users, including:

  • Built-in runtime monitoring that proactively monitors a job’s progress and sends a notification if the job runs longer than expected based on historical average runtimes
  • Automated complex pathways ensure dependencies between systems are met prior to downstream processing
  • Ability to dynamically set runtime parameters
  • Simplified event-based scheduling requirements
  • Easily implement your method of APIs and reuse code from the Integrated Jobs Library

Frequently Asked Questions

Informatica PowerCenter is an ETL tool that extracts, transforms, and loads data. Informatica communicates with all major data sources such as mainframe, XML, SAP, and more. Informatica can access, transform, and integrate data across many systems.
After admins complete initialization of the PowerCenter environment, users with the correct permissions can use Informatica to schedule workflows and configure scheduler settings manually. The list of PowerCenter workflows and jobs scheduled will be available on PowerCenter Repository Services. The PowerCenter repository stores and manages these schedules so admins can define, modify, and manage data integration execution.
