Informatica Corporation (Nasdaq:INFA), the world’s number one independent provider of data integration software, and Exterro, the leading provider of workflow-driven e-discovery software, announced that they are collaborating to integrate Informatica Data Archive with Exterro Fusion® to empower customers to substantially reduce the costs, time and risks associated with compliance and e-discovery.
The integration will provide organizations with a single point of control for orchestrating legal and preservation holds on data stored across Informatica Data Archive and a range of other sources. Informatica Data Archive’s Data Vault is the first structured data repository to be supported by Exterro.

“Corporate legal departments are requiring greater visibility into the data stored throughout the organization, as well as the preservation policies governing that data, both structured and unstructured,” said Ted Gary, senior product marketing manager, Exterro. “The Informatica-Exterro integration will enable clients to defensibly and proactively demonstrate full compliance with e-discovery preservation obligations.”
Companies engaging in e-discovery face a number of key challenges. These typically include no central place to search for relevant matter across structured and unstructured data stores, a lack of integrated legal holds and preservation holds, a lack of audit trails, and no automated deletion policy suspension and reinstatement. The integration of Exterro Fusion and Informatica Data Archive will eliminate these challenges and enable organizations to:
In addition to integrating Informatica Data Archive and Exterro Fusion at the API level, Informatica and Exterro will engage in joint marketing and sales activities, as well as ongoing joint customer development activities.
Informatica Data Archive and Exterro Fusion integration is available in a limited release today with general availability from Informatica in December 2013. The integration is being unveiled this week at the ARMA 2013 Conference and Expo, October 28-30, in Las Vegas. More information is available at Exterro’s booth #555.
