As an independent software vendor (ISV), OEM, Cloud software provider (including Software-as-a-Service, Platform-as-a-Service, or Infrastructure-as-a-Service), or outsourcer/service provider, you achieve success with your solutions depending on your customers' ability to:
- Migrate data to and from applications, regardless of where they reside—on premise, in your customers’ environments, or in the cloud
- Ensure all migrated data is accurate, complete, and current
- Integrate and synchronize the data in your application with data in their other applications and systems so that it’s accessible and usable throughout your customers’ organizations
Informatica can help.
The INFORM Technology Program enables your company to leverage or embed Informatica's industry-leading enterprise data integration technology into packaged applications and service offerings that you develop, distribute, or host.
By entering into an OEM or Commercial Sales agreement with Informatica, you can:
- Gain access to Informatica data integration technology for commercial use to develop and deliver flexible, cost-effective services to your customers
- Reduce the costs and risks of software development and deployment
- Increase your productivity
- Greatly enhance your company’s competitive advantage
Partnering with Informatica has given us a scalable, automated solution to address customer growth and to reduce complexity. We now have a high-volume data integration architecture to help generate billions of emails each month for our customers, with headroom for continued growth."
— Antonio Casacuberta, CTO, Responsys
When you join the INFORM Technology Program, your company receives the following benefits:
Flexible Pricing. Map your licensing costs to your business model and minimize upfront capital costs. The program makes your software development costs transparent when it comes to your customers, allowing your company to treat software as an operating expense rather than a capital cost.
Flexible Deployment. Gain limited rights to access, use, or move Informatica software licenses that have already been purchased by your customer to support your outsourcing deployment efforts. The program makes it easier for your company to develop and deploy services with seamless software license integration.
New revenue opportunities. Leverage Informatica software to expand your reach with new solutions that had previously been financially impractical. Your company will also have the ability to expand your markets and deliver services globally.
Lower development costs. With the Informatica Platform, your development team can easily create and reuse mappings and transformations unique to your solution. Metadata can be shared and reused across many different projects. The platform’s metadata-based architecture, easy-to-use interface, and common set of developer tools boost IT productivity and bring costs down.
Speed development, deployment, and user adoption. A code-free software development kit makes it fast and easy to build the Informatica Platform’s capabilities—universal data access, data profiling, data cleansing, data transformation, and data delivery—into your solutions. Using the Informatica Platform is faster and more effective than labor-intensive and error-prone hand-coded data integration solutions. It can boost user adoption rates by ensuring your solutions can be successfully deployed and fully operational in your customers’ environments on day one.
Maximize technology investments. The Informatica Platform fits into your existing IT infrastructure, so you can make the most of the hardware, software, databases, operating systems, and application servers you and your customers own now or may add in the future.
Reduce risks. Dramatically reduce the risk that your solutions may fail to deliver ROI to your customers because of inaccessible or poor quality data. Because the Informatica Platform is built on a single run-time engine that provides enterprise-grade scalability, availability, and security, your company can have confidence that it is building future software releases on a reliable, high-performing, and reusable data integration platform.
