REDWOOD CITY, Calif., October 10, 2012 - 

Informatica Corporation (Nasdaq:INFA), the world’s number one independent provider of data integration software, today announced that for the seventh consecutive year Informatica received top marks in customer loyalty in the 2012 Data Integration Customer Satisfaction survey conducted by independent research firm TNS, a global market leader in insight and information.

In addition, 87 percent of Informatica customers surveyed recognize Informatica as the technology leader in the industry and 92 percent indicated that Informatica’s technology direction is consistent with their long-term IT strategy.

TNS surveys customers from vendors offering data integration products for its annual customer relationship survey. The survey measures the relevance of numerous categories of customer satisfaction to determine how vendors fare in each area. Customers are also asked to share their views and perceptions of all the vendors across a range of attributes and measures. Areas customers were polled on include:

  • Intent to repurchase,
  • Serving as a positive reference, and
  • Purchase intentions at the same or higher level.

These measures are combined to present a ProCLI (Customer Loyalty Index), or the loyalty score.

Attributes tied to customer loyalty include:
