Redwood City, Calif., July 28, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Informatica Corporation (Nasdaq:INFA), the world's number one independent provider of data integration software, today announced that Gartner, Inc., a leading IT research and advisory firm, has positioned Informatica as a Leader in its 2014 Magic Quadrant for Data Integration Tools report, published July 24, based on ability to execute and completeness of vision.

Gartner analysts wrote in the report that, "Data integration is central to enterprises' information infrastructure. Enterprises pursuing the frictionless sharing of data are increasingly favoring technology tools that are flexible in regard to time-to-value demands, integration patterns, optimization for cost and delivery models, and synergies with information and application infrastructures."

In addition, according to the Gartner report, "The growth rate for this market is above the average for the enterprise software market as a whole, as data integration capability continues to be considered of critical importance in addressing the diversity of problems and emerging requirements. A projected five-year compound annual growth rate of 9.6% will bring the total revenue for this market to just under $3.6 billion by 2018 (see 'Forecast: Enterprise Software Markets, Worldwide, 2011-2018, 2Q14 Update')."

As defined by the report, "Leaders in the data integration tool market are front-runners in the convergence of single-purpose tools into an offering that supports a full range of data delivery styles. They exhibit a clear understanding and vision of where the market is headed, and are strong in establishing data integration infrastructure as an enterprise standard and as a critical component of the modern information infrastructure. They support traditional and newer data integration patterns to capitalize on market demand. Leaders have significant mind share in the market, and resources skilled in their tools are readily available. These vendors establish market trends (to a large degree) by providing new functional capabilities in their products, and by identifying new types of business problems 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."

Todd Goldman, vice president and general manager of Enterprise Data Integration and Data Quality at Informatica, said, "We are thrilled to have been positioned as a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Data Integration tools for the eighth consecutive year. We believe this, combined with our placement as a Leader in five other recent Gartner Magic Quadrant reports, once again demonstrates how Informatica is helping our customers turn data integration agility into business agility and competitive advantage.* Great data isn't an accident. It happens by design, and Informatica is committed to helping businesses design great data, whether it is little or big, on premise or in the cloud, into their critical business processes."
