Informatica Positioned In Leaders Quadrant For Data Integration Tools

Report by leading analyst firm recognises ability to execute and completeness of vision
  • 26 September, 2008 13:42

<p>Informatica Corporation (NASDAQ: INFA), the leading independent provider of data integration software and services, today announced that Gartner, Inc. has positioned Informatica in the Leaders quadrant in the 2008 Magic Quadrant for Data Integration Tools report. In June, Informatica was also positioned in the leaders’ quadrant in the 2008 Magic Quadrant for Data Quality Tools report.</p>
<p>According to the authors of the new report, “Leaders in the data integration tools market are front-runners in the convergence of single purpose tools into an offering that supports a range of data delivery styles. These vendors are strong in the more traditional data integration patterns such as ETL, they support newer patterns such as data federation, and provide capabilities that enable data services in the context of SOA. Leaders have significant mind share in the market, and resources skilled with their tools are readily available. These vendors establish market trends, to a large degree, by providing new functional capabilities in their products, and by identifying new types of business problems where data integration tools can bring significant value. Examples of deployments that span multiple projects and types of use cases are commonplace in their customer base.”</p>
<p>In June, 2008, Informatica further advanced its leadership position in data integration and data quality with the introduction of Informatica 8.6, expanding functionality around real-time data integration, data services, and data governance that is critical to ensuring success in today’s global economy. The versatility of the Informatica platform provides IT with the agility required to de-risk projects and accelerate time to value for an ever widening circle of strategic information initiatives.</p>
<p>“In my opinion, Gartner has recognised the power of the Informatica platform in delivering substantive business value to market leading companies who see data as a strategic asset,” said Chris Boorman, chief marketing officer, Informatica. “Our singular focus on data integration has resulted in consistent innovation, proven technology, and a market leading customer experience. Informatica 8.6 is the first comprehensive, unified and open platform addressing the needs of corporations to drive greater value from their information assets within the traditional enterprise, beyond the enterprise in cloud computing and across enterprises through B2B data exchanges. Informatica 8.6 helps customers improve decision-making, reduce costs and increase operational efficiency.”</p>
