Places in two "top 10" breakout lists: retention and training

REDWOOD CITY, Calif., June 27, 2009 -  Informatica Corp. (NASDAQ: INFA), a leading provider of data integration solutions, today announced that IDG's Computerworld, the "Voice of IT Management," has recognized the company as having one of the top 100 workplaces for information technology (IT) professionals. One of only nine West Coast companies named to this year's list, Informatica was also placed in two "top 10" breakout lists: "Best Places for Retention" and "Best Places for Training."

"This recognition is not only a validation of Informatica's recruitment and retention capabilities, but also of our internal use of our own technologies to drive business excellence," said Tony Young, chief information officer, Informatica Corporation. "I believe we are a highly productive IT team because we hire great people who believe in our values and we empower them to do the best job possible."

Since 1994, Computerworld's annual "Best Places to Work in IT" feature has ranked the top 100 work environments for technology professionals based on a comprehensive questionnaire regarding company offerings in categories such as benefits, diversity, career development, training and retention. In addition, this year Computerworld conducted extensive surveys of IT workers, and their responses factored heavily in determining these rankings.

For the past three years Informatica has achieved impressive revenue and profit growth in an extremely competitive industry. Informatica IT has played a major role in enabling this success through the close aligning of its efforts and investments with Informatica's key business objectives, including revenue growth with cost controls, improving customer satisfaction, and attracting and retaining world-class employees.

"The recipients of this year's Best Places to Work stand out because they are united by a common theme – they understand the importance of IT, and recognize the value these IT professionals bring to the workplace on a daily basis," said Don Tennant, editor in chief, Computerworld.
