In its 2024 Magic QuadrantTM for Integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS), Gartner has recognized Informatica as a Leader. We at Informatica believe this is a strong testament to our consistent focus on innovating integration capabilities to adapt to changing market needs. Our bold vision to enable a unified AI-powered platform that facilitates various integration services makes Informatica a trusted choice for iPaaS. In this latest Magic Quadrant, Gartner evaluated 17 iPaaS vendors and positioned Informatica in the Leaders’ Quadrant based on Completeness of Vision and the Ability to Execute.

Criteria for Gartner iPaaS Magic Quadrant

Gartner provides expert perspectives on the iPaaS vendor landscape and analysis of key differentiators. Vendors are evaluated across a variety of integration use cases as outlined below.

Integration use cases:

  • Data consistency: The ability to monitor for or be notified by applications, services and data sources about changes, and to propagate those changes to the appropriate applications and data destinations (for example, “synchronize customer data” or “ingest into data lake”).
  • Multistep process: The ability to implement multistep processes between applications, services and data sources (for example, to “onboard employee” or “process insurance claim”).
  • Composite service: The ability to create composite services exposed as APIs or events and composed from existing applications, services and data sources (for example, to create a “credit check” service or to create a “generate fraud score” service).

Why your Choice of iPaaS Makes a Difference

In the current technological environment, effective integration is a crucial business capability. Enterprises are actively seeking integration solutions to accelerate innovation, enhance operational efficiencies, modernize systems, and accommodate diverse integration patterns, all while maintaining cost-effectiveness and compliance.

The iPaaS you select must meet the challenges of today’s complex technology landscape. However, many iPaaS offerings on the market today only provide basic integration services and lack a clear strategy for how to scale to support your digital transformation efforts.

When you equip your organization with robust iPaaS solutions you can quickly integrate applications, incorporate new data sources and orchestrate processes. By exposing functionalities and access via APIs, you will be well-positioned to respond with agility and gain a competitive edge, even amidst disruptive changes. Given the increasing scale and complexity of today’s technology landscape, enterprises want to enable more of their people to have the power of integration. This requires no-code/low-code capabilities, with powerful AI-driven automation to make integration simpler and more accessible to all.

Informatica’s iPaaS Vision and Strategy

Our vision is to offer easy, efficient, enterprise-grade integration for any pattern, any data, and any user, powered by CLAIRE® – our AI engine. We support the following integration services today, as shown in Figure 2.
