REDWOOD CITY, Calif., January 08, 2008 -  Informatica Corporation (NASDAQ: INFA), a leading provider of data integration software, today announced that it has been recognized by CMP's Intelligent Enterprise as one of "The Dozen" most influential companies that will drive the intelligent enterprise in 2008. The acknowledgment comes as part of Intelligent Enterprise's 2008 Editors' Choice Awards, which recognizes the vendors that are leading the market in terms of innovation and market influence.

According to Intelligent Enterprise, "Informatica's appeal is not just in its size and stature; it's one of the few vendors offering a combined platform for data integration and data quality." Intelligent Enterprise also observes that "the company has seen nothing but growing demand in the wake of industry consolidation that left this vendor standing as the largest independent data integration alternative."

The Editors' Choice award cites Informatica's leadership in the move towards real-time integration, and notes that recent upgrades extend this "real-time edge" to changed-data capture and fault tolerant messaging. It also comments on the Informatica platform's incorporation of the key elements of data quality, and how Informatica's data quality capabilities have also been extended by recent upgrades.

"Informatica is honored to be included as one of the elite companies comprising the 'Intelligent EnterpriseDozen'" said Chris Boorman, CMO and SVP, Informatica. "In today's non-stop world, effective data integration and data quality are essential in helping corporations to access, utilize and trust all information across their enterprise. This award recognizes our leadership in providing an independent solution to this critical requirement and makes it clear that our product roadmap and unified platform approach to enterprise data integration and proactive data quality is firmly in step with the requirements of the intelligent enterprise."
