Informatica Cited as a Leader by Independent Research Firm 

Data quality is essential to your company’s success. Indeed, “bad data is a customer experience killer,” according to Forrester in its latest report on top data quality providers. See why Forrester positioned Informatica as a leader among data quality vendors.

“Taking on the improvement of data quality to create great customer experiences encompasses more than knowing who customers are or even what they purchased. … This data is coming from a wide ecosystem of applications, data warehouses, big data environments, devices, and the cloud. The implication of this diverse customer data ecosystem is that data quality tools have to account for more complex and sophisticated data quality challenges...,” according to the authors of the Forrester report.
