“Customers have been asking Informatica to take a leadership role as the stewards for the first and only comprehensive data integration marketplace,” said Tony Young, CIO, Informatica. “There are other niche communities in the market, but no one has the broad technology platform and unified architecture that Informatica has delivered for many years. Today Informatica is taking the next step to empower an open and collaborative community to deliver even more value with new unified data integration solutions.”

“Creating marketplaces between software vendors and developers and partners is critical to success in the software market. Informatica has taken an important step by investing in community development. This will be critical as the company continues to advance cloud computing, specifically building on their data integration for the cloud,” said Judith Hurwitz, President and CEO of Hurwitz & Associates, Inc.

With today’s launch of Informatica Marketplace for data integration, Informatica is building on the established Cloud Integration community. The Cloud Community complements Informatica Cloud 9, a comprehensive platform for cloud data integration. Informatica Cloud 9 Platform enables developers to build, share, reuse and run custom data integration and data quality mappings in the cloud.

“Informatica has a thriving community and Fujitsu has already seen great value by connecting with community members, sharing best practices and driving business within the Informatica Cloud marketplace pilot,” said Henry Hai, Senior Director, SaaS Practice, Fujitsu America. “We are very excited that Informatica is taking the next step with an open marketplace, making available more features, functions, products and services to further build on their existing data integration products platform. Within the Informatica Marketplace, buyers will have one place to go to find all the integration solutions they need, and sellers like Fujitsu will have a new way to reach the Informatica community.”
