Informatica receives Strong Vendor Rating for Strategy, Products, and Technology in 2021 Gartner® Vendor Rating report

As we start a new calendar year, I’m humbled to reflect on a historic 2021 for customers, partners, and employees of Informatica alike. We finished the year celebrating our return to the public markets, maintaining our role as a Leader in all five* Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ reports, and receiving three Strong ratings for Technology, Products, and Strategy in our most recent Gartner Vendor Rating.

I’m excited to bring this momentum and focus into 2022 and am committed to building on the vision that helped us get here today.

Our Commitment to a Customer-Focused Strategy

Our commitment to investing in data management research and development has enabled us to pioneer our Intelligent Data Management Cloud (IDMC). IDMC is the only comprehensive data management cloud an organization needs at enterprise scale and is powered by our AI engine, CLAIRE. IDMC helps organizations deliver on their digital-first initiatives and build a competitive edge.

We don’t believe companies should have to endure the pain of stitching together point solutions or the inefficiency of hand-coding to enable end-to-end business use cases. That’s an exercise that inevitably results in increased cost, complexity, and time to market.

Instead, we follow our strategy of providing flexible options, reducing the overall total cost of ownership, and improving time-to-value and productivity for our customers. We achieve this by providing an open, integrated, and interoperable platform with unified metadata intelligence, AI-powered automation, and low-code/no-code user experiences in conjunction with best-in-class customer service and support.

Leveraging Technology Partnerships and Innovation to Accelerate Cloud Modernization

As an enterprise data management leader, we are modernizing our products to the cloud and have made some exciting changes over the past year to help accelerate the process:

  • We deepened our partnerships with cloud platform providers, including Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform, Snowflake, and Databricks
  • We launched a program that migrates PowerCenter customers to our IDMC to power modern cloud analytics and AI
  • We launched Cloud Data Governance Cloud Catalog and Cloud Data Marketplace AI-powered services that enable organizations to democratize and share trusted data assets internally and externally while ensuring compliance with regulations
  • We introduced the Informatica Processing Unit (IPU), our flexible usage-based pricing model, which enables organizations to use existing services and easily add new services as business requirements evolve
  • We continued to strengthen our alliances with major technology vendors and system integrators, working closely to launch and jointly implement industry-specific cloud solutions for our customers

If you are looking for a strategic partner to help you realize your data strategy, we are the only logical choice with the demonstrated track record and innovation to help you succeed. Read the full report to learn more.
