Gartner has just released its 2021 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise iPaaS, and once again Informatica is a Leader, positioned furthest to the right for completeness of vision and highest for ability to execute.

We’re incredibly honored by this recognition, which puts Informatica in the Leaders Quadrant for the 8th time in a row. For our customers, we believe our track record of consistent innovation and our bold vision for a single cloud-native AI-powered platform for data integration, application integration, API integration, and more make Informatica the clear choice when it comes to enterprise iPaaS.  

Why Your Choice of iPaaS Matters

The move to cloud has made integration a critical business capability. Organizations that can quickly onboard new data sources, connect applications, and expose functionality and access through APIs are poised to act with agility and seize competitive advantage—even in the face of disruptive change.

As the pace of change accelerates, you need comprehensive, simple, integration that can handle any data, any application, any API, wherever it is—whether it’s multi-hybrid or multi-cloud. And given the increasing scale and complexity of today’s technology landscape, you want to enable more of your people to have access to the power of integration. That means no-code/low-code capabilities, with powerful AI-driven automation to make integration simpler and more accessible to all.

Your iPaaS needs to be up to the challenge. But many iPaaS offerings don’t go beyond table stakes of basic integration patterns—and they don’t have a compelling vision of how iPaaS should evolve to help you drive digital transformation.

Our iPaaS Vision and the Intelligent Data Management Cloud

Informatica Intelligent Cloud Services (IICS), our cloud-native enterprise iPaaS, has always gone beyond table stakes. Our consistent innovation with IICS has enabled us to execute on a ground-breaking vision for a single, unified cloud dedicated to data management, the Informatica Data Management Cloud. The first and only cloud for data management, IDMC leverages powerful AI and over 200 intelligent cloud services, all in a single platform, spanning any deployment model, API, and data pattern. With the Intelligent Data Management Cloud, you know that your most valuable data assets are trusted, governed, accessible, timely, and actionable no matter where they reside.

IICS brings the Intelligent Data Management Cloud to life. We believe these key strengths of IICS make Informatica the best integration partner for your business:

  • A comprehensive, unified platform. IICS goes far beyond the limitations of other vendors’ iPaaS offerings. Our vision for a single cloud for data management means that you can use IICS to integrate any data, any application, any API for any user and any use case. And with IICS, you have a single, future-proofed, microservices-based AI-powered platform that can address any integration need now or in the future.
  • Broad ecosystem support. We believe that only IICS gives you flexibility and scalability you need for today’s multi-cloud, multi-hybrid technology landscape. Cloud-agnostic and vendor-neutral, IICS supports any cloud ecosystem, including Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform, Microsoft Azure, SAP, Snowflake, Databricks, and more.
  • A commitment to innovation. We continue to advance our vision of how an enterprise iPaaS should evolve to meet customer needs and how it can drive digital transformation. Powered by Informatica CLAIRE—our metadata-driven AI and machine-learning engine—IICS raises the bar and outpaces the competition, leading the way to autonomous data management built on a foundation of AI-powered automation.
