REDWOOD CITY, Calif., May 1, 2017 – Informatica®, the world’s No. 1 provider of data management solutions, today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Informatica to its 2017 Big Data 100 list. This annual list recognizes the ingenuity of tech suppliers bringing to market innovative offerings for harnessing the increasingly huge amounts of data generated in today’s digital world, raising the bar for data management and challenging established IT practices.

Businesses are constantly grappling with the exploding volume, speed and variety of information they produce and utilize on a daily basis to remain competitive. Solution providers are on a never-ending quest to tame this big data with innovative tools, technologies and services that can convert it into meaningful, usable statistics.

In response to this challenge, the CRN editorial team has identified the IT vendors at the forefront of data management, business analytics and infrastructure technologies and services. The resulting Big Data 100 list is a valuable guide for solution providers seeking out key big data technology suppliers.

Informatica Big Data Management is the only single, integrated and out-of-the-box solution for turning big data into business value with collaborative and self-service data quality and governance. With Informatica Big Data Management, organizations can integrate more data more quickly from more data sources using pre-built connectors, multi-latency ingestion engines and machine-learning based discovery.

Data governance and proactive data security intelligence turn big data into rich, secure and trusted data assets.

“Companies large and small are undergoing digital transformations and big data is a key part of digital transformation. Even more importantly, effective big data represents big opportunity,” said Rodney Foreman, senior vice president, Partner Ecosystem, Informatica. “Unlike many stand-alone tools and code generators, only Informatica provides an end-to-end solution that takes advantage of advanced metadata intelligence combined with machine learning and AI to help discover, ingest, govern, master, secure and leverage vast volumes of streaming data.
