The Forrester Wave™: Hybrid2 Integration, Q1 2014

Informatica Positioned as a Leader in New Forrester Wave™: Hybrid2 Integration, Q1 2014, based on Strategy, Current Offering, and Market Presence

Forrester's new Hybrid2 Integration Wave report positions Informatica as a leader in all scenarios.

Informatica is positioned as a leader in all four scenarios. "We are excited to be ranked by Forrester as a leader in all four of its Hybrid Integration Wave scenarios, as we believe this speaks to the depth and breadth of our unified on-premises and cloud solutions," said Ronen Schwartz, vice president and general manager, Informatica Cloud. "We provide Data Integration, Cloud Based Integration (CBI), B2B Integration, Business Process Management (BPM) and API Management , and ensure data quality across all of our customers' resources. With the Informatica Vibe virtual data machine, which powers both our Informatica Cloud and on-premises solutions, customers can create end-to-end data integration mappings once, and run them in multiple platforms."

To recommend the best choice of an integration platform, tools, and cloud-based integration or iPaaS services, Forrester developed the following four weighting schemes:

  • Wide integration focuses on the hybrid integration value.
  • Deep integration focuses on integration capability first and interoperability second.
  • Cloud integration focuses on all kinds of integration with and in the cloud.
  • Internet-of-Things integration is built on dedicated capabilities.
