Informatica Acquires Agent Logic

Advances Technology Leadership and Further Expands Addressable Market Opportunity

REDWOOD CITY, Calif., September 02, 2009 - 

Informatica Corporation (NASDAQ: INFA), the world's number one independent leader in data integration software, today announced that it had completed the acquisition of Agent Logic, a leader in the Complex Event Processing (CEP) software category. CEP enables enterprises to rapidly detect, correlate, analyze and respond to data-driven events. The combination of CEP and data integration enables organizations to be more responsive, adaptable and agile.

"The acquisition of Agent Logic will expand Informatica's addressable market with an additional high-growth, adjacent technology category, Complex Event Processing. The combination of Agent Logic CEP and the Informatica Platform will advance our technology leadership with unique, compelling capabilities for customers such as support for event-driven active data integration and identity-aware event processing," said Sohaib Abbasi, chairman and CEO, Informatica. "With their track record and experience, Agent Logic will further strengthen our business in the public sector."

Organizations face ever-increasing variety, volume and velocity of events including sensor-based data, geospatial data, field reports, transaction flows and web site clickstream data. Operational initiatives for risk mitigation or intelligence situational awareness require timely detection and intelligent response to such opportunities and threats. To address these challenges, CEP software is one of the fastest growing IT categories, estimated by industry analyst group IDC to grow by a compound annual growth rate of 55% from 2008 to 2012.*

Agent Logic technology distinguishes itself by its simplicity, versatility and integrated alerting capability. With simple self-service facilities, Agent Logic RulePoint was designed for business users to specify the rules for events and associated actions. With its versatility, Agent Logic RuleCast enables developers to create Event Stream Processing rules for a diverse set of data sources such as message queues, databases, telemetry feeds and control systems. In addition, with an integrated alerting capability, Agent Logic Real-Time Alert Manager delivers timely intelligence on opportunities and threats identified by RulePoint. Together, with an event-driven architecture, the Agent Logic product portfolio enables organizations to gain greater agility.

The combination of Agent Logic and Informatica will advance Informatica's technology leadership in two fundamental ways. First, the combination of Agent Logic Complex Event Processing and the Informatica Platform enables another type of broader data integration project – event-driven active data integration. Second, the combination of Agent Logic Complex Event Processing and Informatica Identity Resolution supports identity-aware event processing. Active data integration and identity-aware event processing will enable a variety of applications in financial services, healthcare and, particularly, the public sector.

"The combination of Agent Logic CEP and the Informatica Platform is extremely powerful," said Michael Appelbaum, president and CEO, Agent Logic. "By integrating event data with the related transactional and historical data, business users can better understand situational context, and based on this real-time operational intelligence, decrease the time to act and respond accordingly. This combination offers well-differentiated, powerful capabilities demanded by both government organizations and commercial enterprises."

Agent Logic has customers in the commercial sector and the public sector, including U.S. national security agencies. In the public sector, Agent Logic can facilitate maritime domain awareness, geospatial tracking and battlespace command and control. In the commercial sector, as an example, Agent Logic can help control costs related to corporate credit card programs with rules for conformance to the pertinent travel and expense policies.

Agent Logic will further strengthen Informatica's business in the public sector, particularly within the U.S. federal government. Agent Logic was founded in 1999, with its corporate headquarters near Washington, D.C. and a market focus on the U.S. government agencies. With Agent Logic's track record in the U.S. public sector, Informatica is now better positioned to pursue the growing opportunities in the public sector.
