Is it possible to install JUST Oracle Informatica PowerCenter WITHOUT installing OBIEE and/or OBIA applications?
I would love to get familiar with the Informatica Mapping designer and maybe with few other Informatica functions. I am not interested, at the moment, in a full blown OBIEE implementation.
Please advise -
Yes. You can do that with your own repository (or empty repository). If you want to see and play around pre-built Informatica mappings for BI Apps modules? then you need to go with OBIEE Installation and then BI Apps.

You can do that just to familiarize yourself w the toolset. However, as per the OBIA licensing policy, you cannot use Informatica standalone to populate a NON OBIA DataWarehouse. If you intend of using Informatica that comes w OBIA in a enterprise environment, it must be used to load the OBIA DW.
