Informatica Positioned in Leaders Quadrant for Data
Integration Tools

Report by Leading Analyst Firm Recognizes Ability to Execute
and Completeness of Vision

REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Dec. 2, 2009 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Informatica
Corporation (Nasdaq:INFA), the world’s number one independent provider of
data integration software, announced that Gartner, Inc. has positioned
Informatica in the Leaders quadrant in the 2009 Magic Quadrant for Data
Integration Tools report(1). In June, Informatica was also positioned in the
leaders’ quadrant in the 2009 Magic Quadrant for Data Quality Tools

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.”

In November 2009, Informatica further advanced its leadership position in
data integration and data quality with the introduction of Informatica 9,
expanding functionality around pervasive data quality, SOA-based data
services and Business-IT Collaboration 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

“In my opinion, Gartner has recognized the power of the Informatica Platform
to deliver substantial business value to market leading companies who manage
data as a strategic asset,” said Girish Pancha, executive vice president,
Data Integration Products, Informatica.
“During the past year, Informatica has continued to deliver comprehensive
data integration solutions to nearly 4,000 customers around the globe. And
with Informatica’s newest offering, Informatica 9, we continue to be at the
forefront of our industry in delivering innovative data integration
capabilities in the market.”
