In today’s information economy, data is absolutely critical for any business
survival or business revival strategy. Relevant, trustworthy and timely data
is the difference between the success and failure of top business
imperatives. Yet, becoming a data-driven enterprise has remained an elusive
goal for many organizations.

In order to become data-driven enterprises, organizations face three
daunting challenges: first, business users often cannot rely on IT alone for
the most business-relevant information; second business users frequently do
not regard the data to be trustworthy for their purposes; and third business
users do not have timely access to the data in the appropriate form. Until
now, these formidable challenges have often compromised the value of IT and
impeded the most business-critical initiatives.

Informatica 9 uniquely helps organizations overcome these three challenges
through business-IT collaboration, pervasive data quality and innovative
SOA-based data services. Business-IT collaboration ensures that
fit-for-purpose systems deliver the most business-relevant data. Pervasive
data quality assures that all stakeholders can trust data for their business
purposes. And, open SOA-based data services enable even more types of
operational data integration projects to deliver timely data in the
appropriate format. With these three breakthrough advances, Informatica 9
enables organizations to become data-driven enterprises by delivering the
most business-relevant, trustworthy and timely data.

“Informatica 9 is a comprehensive infrastructure platform with products
across six different technology categories that are unified to reduce IT
costs and open to leverage data on-premise and in the internet cloud,” said
Sohaib Abbasi, chairman and CEO, Informatica. “With Informatica 9, customers
can gain competitive advantage with the most relevant, trustworthy and
timely data as mandated by their top business imperatives.”

“Access to timely, relevant, and trusted data is extremely important to
Nike’s business,” said Steve J. Dennis, Director, Integration Competency
Center, Nike. “We are very excited about the new and versatile capabilities
of Informatica 9 and the continued business value that Nike realizes from
Informatica technology.”

“Our customers look to gain competitive advantage through timely, accurate
and more informed business decisions,” said Giuliano Di Vitantonio, Head of
Marketing and Alliances, Business Intelligence Solutions, HP. “The
combination of HP Business Intelligence Solutions and the Informatica 9
platform provides that competitive edge by improving collaboration between
IT and business users, and speeding access to accurate, trusted data through
governed data services.”

More than 50 leading customers and partners from around the globe support
the Informatica 9 announcement.

“Customers today are looking to gain a competitive advantage by
understanding how they can truly transform their business by using data
effectively across their organization,” said Mark Smith, CEO & Executive
Vice President of Research, Ventana Research. “With the release of
Informatica 9, the company is delivering a solution that is a breakthrough
in how organizations can collaboratively work together across business and
IT and use data as a core asset. Informatica is bridging these two
organizations with collaborative data integration capabilities that reduce
the time and cost to deliver data for a range of business needs.”
