Project 2: Deploying Informatica ETL for Business Intelligence
Problem Statement: Disparate data needs to be converted into insights using Informatica
Topics: In this Informatica project, you have access to all environments like dev, QA, UAT and production. You will first configure all the repositories in various environments. You will receive the requirement from client through source to target mapping sheet. You will extract data from various source systems and fetch it into staging. From staging, it will go to the operational data store; from there, the data will go to the enterprise data warehouse, and from there it will be directly deployed for generating reports and deriving business insights.
Project 3: Deploying the ETL Transactions on Healthcare Data
Problem Statement: How to systematically load data within a hospital scenario so that it is easily available
Topics: In this Clinical Research Data Warehouse (CRDW) Informatica project, you will be working on various types of data coming from diverse sources. The warehouse contains remitted claims that are both approved or disapproved for end-user reporting. You will create CRDW load schedules that are on daily, weekly and monthly bases.
