REDWOOD CITY, Calif., April 25, 2008 - 

Informatica Corporation (NASDAQ: INFA), the leading independent provider of data integration software, today announced that its 10th annual data integration user conference, Informatica World 2008, will spotlight operational efficiency benefits and the expanding business impact of data integration, June 3 - 5, at the Las Vegas Hilton.

With the theme "Gain the Edge," this year's event will engage more than 1,200 customers, partners and integration experts in a wide-ranging series of discussion and focus groups, hands-on labs, professional development sessions, and partner exhibitions. Informatica executives and industry experts will discuss the trends, drivers, and technologies that are powering the Information Economy. 40 percent of the sessions will be customer led, highlighting real-life successes with data integration technology. More than one-third of the sessions will focus on executing integration-driven business initiatives, including a new Business Impact track and a dedicated Executive Summit.

"Informatica World is established as the only conference for professional data integration experts," said Chris Boorman, chief marketing officer, Informatica. "The emphasis in 2008 will be on Gaining the Edge in the Information Economy - how data integration is the critical enabler for driving new business advantages and operational efficiencies in areas such as Business to Business (B2B), governance, post-Merger and Acquisition (M&A) activities, and business intelligence. Attendees will learn first hand, from peers and experts on the front line, how to leverage the latest integration technologies to gain an edge in today's global economy."

This year's event will feature peer-to-peer roundtables on key enterprise data integration and data quality topics, and more than 50 educational sessions to complement these discussion groups and the conference's keynote presentations. Attendees will have the opportunity to preview and test drive new Informatica products and releases, and engage in hands-on, expert-led labs for exploring an extended array of technologies and capabilities.

"Gaining insight into what the global economy demands of organizations, and the part that information technology plays; gaining a glimpse into the future of data integration, the Informatica strategy, and new product releases designed to help organizations thrive in the face of complexity and change, are all in store for this year's event," said Paul Hoffman, executive vice president, Worldwide Field Operations, Informatica. "Customers will gain an understanding of the innovative ways organizations are using data to make smarter decisions, meet compliance requirements, find new value in existing systems, and take advantage of market opportunities."

The conference will also provide the opportunity to investigate new solutions from Informatica partners through a larger-than-ever Partner Fair, as well as to pursue certification as an Informatica administrator, designer or consultant through complete on-site testing. An extensive schedule of pre- and post-conference classes will also be offered by Informatica Global Education Services at a special rate for conference attendees.

"Capping what is anticipated to be the largest ever Informatica World, will be the annual announcement of Informatica Innovation Award winners," added Boorman. "The 2008 finalists, ranging from not-for-profits to some of the largest names in industry and services, exemplify inventiveness and leadership in using data integration to drive competitive advantage and operational excellence. This year's finalists are impressive for their scope of vision and creativity, and their participation across the conference is another compelling draw."
