Informatica Announces New Cloud Integration On Databricks


Informatica, the enterprise cloud data management leader,  announced a major expansion of its partnership with Databricks with a new integration that empowers organisations to accelerate democratisation of their data with Informatica and Databricks’ Lakehouse Platform.

Informatica’s no-code data pipelines are easy to build, offer much faster development times and are much easier to re-use and maintain than hand-coding.

“The cloud-native data integrations represent a new chapter in the Informatica-Databricks partnership,” said Pankaj Dugar, VP Product Partnerships at Databricks. “The introduction of these new features will deliver a streamlined experience for our joint customers and make it easier than ever to leverage Informatica’s IDMC pipeline capabilities with the power and performance of the Databricks Lakehouse Platform.”
