Setting new milestones for cloud integration, Informatica Corporation (NASDAQ: INFA), the world’s number one independent leader in data integration software, today announced that its award-winning cloud integration service, Informatica Cloud, now surpasses 20 billion cloud data transactions and three million cloud data integration jobs per month, driven by ease of use, rapid implementation time and powerful underlying platform.
Organizations are running fast to keep pace with the growing volumes of data that flow through their systems on a daily basis, and increasingly this data is in the cloud. The ability to process this data in real-time as it continues to grow is a Big Data challenge. In an effort to manage and retain control of this data more than 1,300 companies and government agencies now use Informatica Cloud to perform more than three million cloud data integration processing jobs a month across such use cases as data migration, data synchronization, data quality and data replication. These jobs range from event-based real-time integration to high-volume batch data movement. Meanwhile, monthly transactions handled by Informatica Cloud have increased to more than 20 billion in a reflection of the integration performance, scalability, availability and manageability that are unique to Informatica Cloud.

“Clouds of different types have in recent years become viable platforms for business intelligence, data warehousing, data integration and data quality,” said Philip Russom, research director for data management at TDWI. “For example, many user organizations have implemented a reporting platform or database management system for warehousing or analytics on either a third-party cloud or their own private cloud. Others depend on cloud-based services for data integration and data quality. Eventually, clouds will be as common as client-server and Web platforms, supporting the full range of enterprise software types.”
