  • The Power Exchange Informatica Connector for Google Analytics is designed to

    integrate Google Analytics sources within Informatica PowerCenter installations. With

    the capabilities provided by the connector, user can extract data from Google

    Analytics through Informatica PowerCenter platform. It also enables the processing of

    data stored in Google Analytics using different Informatica transformations.

    The figure below shows the architecture of the Google Analytics Informatica

    Connector. The connector resides under the Informatica as a Source definition in the

    Client. The source definition contains the fields (dimensions or metrics) for which the

    data is to be fetched from Google Analytics Server (Data store).

    The server component is responsible for actual data transfer from Google Analytics

    server. The data is fetched from the Google Analytics server for the dimensions and

    metrics user has opted for. The data is then converted to Informatica understandable

    format and flushed to the next stage in the Informatica pipeline.

    HOW THE CONNECTOR WORKS

    can see category-wise list of Dimensions and Metrics. To create Google Analytics Source, user should select the desired

    category. For the selected category, Dimensions and metrics will appear in the respective list boxes as shown in the below

    valid, an error message will be displayed. The user will be asked to select valid combination. Cancel button will exit the
