Informatica Celebrates 12 Consecutive Years as a Leader in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Data Integration Tools

Informatica Positioned Furthest and Highest for “Completeness of Vision” and “Ability to Execute” for Fourth Year in a Row

REDWOOD CITY, Calif., August 8, 2017 – Informatica, the Enterprise Cloud Data Management leader accelerating data-driven digital transformation, today announced that Gartner, Inc., a leading IT research and advisory firm, has positioned Informatica as a Leader in its 2017 Magic Quadrant for Data Integration Tools for the 12th consecutive year. This year’s report marks the fourth year in a row that Gartner has positioned Informatica as the furthest and highest on the completeness of vision and ability to execute axes, respectively.

The complete report, including the quadrant graphic, was published on August 3, 2017, and is available at https://informatica.com/data-integration-magic-quadrant.html.

“Gartner estimates that the data integration tool market generated more than $2.7 billion in software revenue (in constant currency) at the end of 2016. A projected five-year compound annual growth rate of 6.32% will bring the total market revenue to around $4 billion in 2021 (see ‘Forecast: Enterprise Software Markets, Worldwide, 2014-2021, 2Q17 Update’).”*

According to the Gartner report, “the data integration tool market has established a focus on transformational technologies and approaches demanded by data and analytics leaders. The presence of legacy, resilient systems and innovation all in the market together requires robust, consistent delivery of highly developed practices.”

The report notes that, “the biggest change in the market from 2016 is the pervasive yet elusive demand for metadata driven solutions. Consumers are asking for hybrid deployment not just in the cloud and on-premises (which is metadata-driven combined with services distribution), but also across multiple data tiers throughout broad deployment models, plus the ability to blend data integration with application integration platforms (which is metadata driven in combination with workflow management and process orchestration) and a supplier focus on product and delivery initiatives to support these demands.”

The report authors wrote that “Leaders in the data integration tool market are front-runners in the capability to support a full range of data delivery styles. They have also recognized the growing affinity between data and application integration and are haltingly approaching location-agnostic deployments (those that are not limited to cloud or on-premises, but can be deployed beyond a specific location). They are strong in establishing data integration infrastructure as an enterprise standard and as a critical component of modern information infrastructure. They support both traditional and new data integration patterns in order to capitalize on market demand. Leaders have significant mind share in the market, and resources skilled in their tools are readily available. These vendors recognize, and design to deploy for, emerging and new market demands — often providing new functional capabilities in their products ahead of demand, and by identifying new types of business problem to which data integration tools can bring significant value. Examples of deployments that span multiple projects and types of use case are common among Leaders' customers. Leaders have an established market presence, significant size and a multinational presence (directly or through a parent company).”

“Informatica data integration technologies and solutions are a cornerstone of our mission to fuel the next-generation intelligent enterprise and accelerate our customers’ digital transformations through the use of data of all types, by any users and for all business purposes,” said Ronen Schwartz, senior vice president and general manager, Cloud, Big Data and Data Integration, Informatica. “We believe that being positioned by Gartner as a leader in data integration for a cloud and big data world, is testament to Informatica’s track record of empowering customers to engage in intelligent, data-driven disruption, both within their own enterprises and across their respective industries.”
