Foundation relies on data to improve lives of vulnerable communities

La Caixa Foundation, one of the most prominent foundations in the world by volume of social investment, has chosen Informatica’s AI-powered Intelligent Data Management Cloud platform as one of the core components of its ‘digital cloud transformation’.

This strategic collaboration aims to propel La Caixa Foundation into a new era of efficiency and agility by instilling a ‘data-centric’ culture throughout the organisation.

For over a century, La Caixa Foundation has been committed to building a better future for those in need by creating programmes that focus on the advancement of culture, science, education, and medical research and health programmes.

Working to improve the lives of some of the most vulnerable communities, the foundation places emphasis on programmes with the greatest power to transform society, such as those that combat child poverty and social exclusion, programmes that foster employment and help to improve the living conditions of the least fortunate.

After decades of growth, La Caixa Foundation decided to modernise its data management programme and transition to the cloud as part of its commitment to improving its non-profit projects through more efficient data analysis. Informatica’s AI-powered Intelligent Data Management Cloud platform will provide wider flexibility for adopting new technologies to support the foundation as it expands.

The move is not only about embracing modern technology but signifies a broader initiative to share data and information seamlessly with partners and co-operation agencies, ultimately contributing to better community experiences.

“We have a long history as an organisation, which includes legacy systems and processes and a significant amount of data in various formats. We chose Informatica to help us form a new, modern AI-powered data culture and create an enterprise-wide data strategy—one which will allow us to integrate all data on one platform, and improve data quality, standardisation, and governance,” said Jordi Gener, Director of Government and Data Management at La Caixa Foundation.

“The foundation had very specific criteria for its data modernisation project. They wanted a single platform that allowed them to advance at their own pace, leverage the integrators they’ve known for years, and expand as needed,” said Massimo Miazzetto, VP of Sales and Country Manager Italy and Iberia.

“Informatica’s AI-powered Intelligent Data Management Cloud platform enables customers to evolve their data management practice at their own pace and creates a future-proof system that delivers holistic, trusted data to help make informed decisions and achieve business objectives.”
