Bangalore, India, May 07, 2014 - 

Informatica Corporation (Nasdaq:INFA), the world’s number one independent provider of data integration software, today announced that it is expanding its distributor relationship with Sonata Software in India to provide PowerCenter Express, a downloadable offering that economically addresses the entry-level data integration needs of enterprise departments and small to mid-sized companies.

Sonata Software, an IT consulting and software services provider, has been a distributor of Informatica data integration solutions in India since 2007. It now will offer in India, Informatica’s PowerCenter Express, a solution specifically designed to meet the needs of departmental projects and mid-market companies.

Powered by the Informatica Vibe virtual data machine, PowerCenter Express extends the proven Informatica PowerCenter portfolio to provide customers with a clear growth path from entry-level to enterprise-class data integration capabilities. It enables small to mid-sized businesses or departments within larger enterprises to easily get started with a fit-for-purpose, high-quality data integration solution, enabling them to scale to an enterprise-class platform when required.

With the growing need for high-performance data integration, organizations in India continue to rely on traditional hand-coding methods as an alternative approach to meet performance and scalability requirements. Informatica PowerCenter Express is modeled after a proven, enterprise-level solution and comes ready with prepackaged integration to commonly used data sources. It has all the ETL functionalities of PowerCenter Enterprise editions but is right-sized for volumes of smaller data integration projects and offers unparalleled ease-of-use with a no-coding graphical user interface. With PowerCenter Express, companies and organizations can quickly and cost-effectively incorporate customized data integration capabilities into daily business practices to unleash the potential of their data.

Commenting on the announcement, Sangeetha Phalgunan, Country Manager - Sales, Informatica India, said, “Our longstanding association with Sonata Software has helped us provide top-of-the line data integration software and services to enterprises in India. Sonata Software is our first appointed distributor for PowerCenter Express in India, and with this collaboration, we plan to continue to grow the reseller network in 2014.
