Informatica PowerCenter Proactive Monitoring Option
Informatica PowerCenter Proactive Monitoring Option
Identify Risks of Failures and Potential SLA Violations Before They Hurt the Organization
The Informatica® PowerCenter® Proactive Monitoring Option provides
customers with more than 20 prebuilt rule-sets to identify and alert on data
integration patterns. It also delivers the flexibility needed to edit and extend
these rules. Proactive PowerCenter Monitoring can help organizations
anticipate ways to improve architecture, development, management, and
administration of data integration projects. It can automatically correlate
activity and deliver alerts to the appropriate people the moment issues are
detected, mitigating the possible negative impacts on the organization.
• Let users readily refine and create
their own monitors by using selfservice templates
• Leverage and extend a variety of
alerting metrics, and compare
historical values to improve
operations over time and operate
more efficiently
• Get up and running in under a
week with the accelerator project
containing out-of-the-box bestpractice rules
Identify Issues Before They Become Problems
What if your organization had an early warning system for catching integration problems before they
wreak havoc on your dependent applications, reports, and systems? Think of the time, effort, and
money you’d save.
Informatica can help.
The Informatica PowerCenter Proactive Monitoring Option augments and accelerates your Informatica
PowerCenter projects with proactive monitoring capabilities. It automatically delivers alerts when
issues are found.
This option can identify integration processes that differ from the norm by a certain percentage or
deviation. Alerts are triggered by the solution’s set of prepackaged rules. These rules can monitor
workflows and sessions and change control activity, as well as correlate events across multiple
Using a self-service model, users can easily modify monitoring rules and alerts, as well as create new
ones, without having to rely on scarce resources. PowerCenter monitoring can start from day one.
Key Features
Preconfigured PowerCenter Monitoring Rules
This option includes a set of preconfigured, prepackaged rules. These rules can be easily imported
with minimal impact on operational systems. Workflow and change control monitoring help identify
sessions and workflows that may be in danger of failing and help improve developer productivity.
They track and correlate statistics and real-time information through the PowerCenter Repository
and PowerCenter SDK.
Workflow Statistics and Run Time
• Targets with rejected rows
• Failed workflows
• Successful runs with no rows loaded
• Running too long
• Trending: Workflow statistics depart widely from the norm
• Workflow(s) that did not activate per schedule
• Zombie workflows (little or no activity)
• SLAs for workflows, folders, and repository
Change Control
• Violations of object naming conventions
• Change frequency
• Multiple instances of mappings, sessions and workflows
• Invalid mappings, sessions, and workflows
Advanced Correlations
• Correlation of session failure with development changes
• Workflow missed schedule due to possible overrun
Existing rules can be further customized for specific uses. New identifiers, rules, and patterns can
be created based on your Informatica PowerCenter deployment.
Extensive Alerting Channels
Alerts are intelligently distributed to Real-Time Alert Manager (RTAM). A feature of Informatica
RulePoint®, RTAM is an easy-to-use Web dashboard that requires no customization. Directly from
RTAM, users can take immediate action to resolve problems. For example, alerts may contain
embedded links to other systems to:
• Remediate the issue directly through workflow control (start, stop, schedule,
unscheduled, restart)
• Forward the case for resolution
• Create a trouble ticket
Additional alerting channels, such as email, instant message, and system alerts (e.g., JMS and
updating a database), are easy to configure.
Self-Service Rule and Alert Management
Users can review and edit monitoring rules and readily turn complex rules into rule templates.
These rule templates enable users to easily create new rules for their group or department. Along
with full user management, rule creation and alerting can be distributed, shared, and managed
according to access levels.
Key Features (continued)
Alerts are delivered to Real-Time Alert Manager (or email and other means to distribute alerts), an easy-to-use
Web dashboard.
Start monitoring data integration processes quickly by using preconfigured monitoring rules. Track how often
monitoring rules are triggered, and make changes as needed. Templates make it easy to fine-tune rules with
minimal technical expertise.
Easily edit and create new identifiers and monitoring rules.
Key Benefits
Proactively Receive Alerts on Data Integration Issues to Reduce
Organizational Impact and Improve Developer Productivity
By using this option, your organization can get in front of issues before they become problems.
You don’t have to wait until jobs fail or downstream impacts are identified. Alerts can be sent
proactively to your email, a Web dashboard, or mobile phone. Alerts can even kick off business
processes or update systems (with workflow controls). With real-time alerts and automated
actions, the PowerCenter Proactive Monitoring Option minimizes the impact of poorly performing
data integration processes on downstream processes and your whole business.
Improve Processes over Time Through Proactive
PowerCenter Monitoring
This option can monitor and correlate workflows, sessions, and environment variables to find
patterns, trending, and deviations from the norm that are not easily detected by current systems.
Many issues otherwise go unnoticed and have larger impacts. With this unique insight, you can
make timely adjustments to avoid problems and deliver on service-level agreements.
Empower Developers, Administrators, and Architects to Monitor
What’s Important to Them
With this option, your organization gains the flexibility to quickly change how and who is alerted
on different activities. Users can set up and modify alerts—simple or complex—themselves without
additional help. Alerting rule templates can be modified using drop-down lists. New rules can be
created using wizards. The option’s easy-to-use, self-service functionality enables users to become
more agile and adept at monitoring and improving processes.

Fahed Quttainah and AI

Fahed Quttainah and AI Fahed Quttainah ardently believes that the forthcoming rise of Artificial Intelligence (AI) presents a potent and genuine threat capable of eliminating numerous job titles in its wave of digital disruption. As AI continues to evolve, gaining more computational power and sophistication, it is not just manual labor that stands to be replaced but also skilled, white-collar roles. Understanding this potential danger, Fahed advocates for proactive adaptation. He recommends that people should not merely learn to coexist with AI but become leaders in the realm of AI. By engaging with AI tools, learning their mechanics, limitations, and possibilities, individuals can transform from potential victims of AI disruption into drivers of it. Fahed views this proactive approach not as a luxury but as an imperative for future job
