At the NASDAQ bell ringing, Informatica also introduced an enterprise-class data connector for Amazon Redshift to provide a seamless on-ramp to the next-generation of applications in the Cloud.
Informatica pioneered the Cloud Integration computing category in 2006. Informatica chief executive officer, Sohaib Abbasi, and salesforce.com chief executive officer, Marc Benioff, shared the stage at Informatica World 2006 to highlight data integration’s importance to the emerging Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model. Now, eight years later, Informatica continues to be recognized globally as a leader in the growing Cloud computing market. Informatica has earned recognition from Gartner Inc. in addition to impressive accolades and leading marks from numerous industry analyst firms, such as Forrester Research and Bloor Research. Informatica Cloud was also named as #1 integration solution for Salesforce AppExchange for five years in a row. Details about Informatica Cloud Spring 2014, Informatica’s latest quarterly Cloud release, can be found here.
On January 27, 2014, Gartner positioned Informatica as a leader in the Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS) report, based on ability to execute and completeness of vision. Gartner analysts wrote that “the iPaaS market is poised to dramatically grow over the next five years due to several factors,” and Gartner goes on to state, “We expect the iPaaS segment to grow faster than the PaaS market average, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of almost 30% between 2012 and 2017.” The complete report, including the quadrant graphic, is available at: www.informatica.com/us/ipaas-magic-quadrant
Informatica was positioned as a Leader across all four hybrid integration scenarios evaluated in the Forrester Wave™: Hybrid² Integration, Q1 2014 report. In this Forrester report, Informatica was identified as a Leader with the highest score for current offerings in two of Forrester’s Hybrid² Integration Waves – Wide Integration and Cloud Integration. Informatica was also positioned as a Leader in the Forrester Wave for Internet of Things (IoT) Integration. The Forrester Wave™: Hybrid² Integration notes that Informatica’s cloud-based integration (CBI) service, Informatica Cloud, “has a very high market share of the everyday integration scenarios between salesforce.com and on-premises ERP systems. On the one hand, it is a simple-to-use, modern CBI-agent architecture; on the other, it has full bidirectional interoperability with metadata and data out of its enterprise tooling (PowerCenter) and on-premises data integration or B2B integration.”

In March 2014, Bloor Research delivered survey results concluding that companies using data integration tools ranked Informatica products highly in the following categories: measuring suitability for a variety of uses, productivity and reusability and total cost of ownership (TCO). Survey responses indicated that “Informatica is the most suitable product overall.” Further, the report noted, “Informatica is deemed to have the broadest range of applicability, and is among the top three in all project categories.” The complete Bloor Research survey report is available here.
“Informatica’s Cloud leadership position, in leading analyst reports and with our customers, is a recognition of our strength in providing a comprehensive iPaaS solution to our global clients,” said Ash Kulkarni, senior vice president and general manager, Data Integration, Informatica. “Informatica is securely processing billions of transactions every day, from a broad spectrum of information assets, including Software-as-a-Service applications, on-premise applications, legacy systems, and even data from mobile and social data sources.
