Informatica Expands Microsoft, Google Cloud Partnerships


Informatica is expanding its relationships with cloud providers Microsoft and Google as part of a move to make it easier for enterprises who have been migrating to the cloud to take advantage of new ways to make intelligent use of their data.

Informatica recently unveiled Master Data Management-as-a-service on Microsoft Azure to take advantage of the scalability offered by Azure. The company also unveiled the Informatica Data Loader for Google BigQuery, which gives enterprises a way to load data into the Google Cloud at no charge to prepare it for analytics using the Google BigQuery cloud data warehouse.

Informatica offers a cloud-native platform called Intelligent Data Management Cloud which provides cloud-native data management services. The Intelligent Data Management Cloud is running on a scale of 32 trillion transactions a month, doubling every year, and is currently serving 5,000-plus customers.

“We have a huge product called Master Data Management, which basically creates a 360-degree view of any customers, suppliers or product. Large enterprises depend on it to run their business and we will be announcing cloud-native Master Data Management running natively on Microsoft Azure. Microsoft has a big partnership with us already, but this allows both Microsoft and us to extend our cloud capabilities together to help our customers scale rapidly with their digital transformation initiatives to the cloud,” said Amit Walia, CEO, Informatica.

All the new capabilities will be available to Informatica’s various indirect channels, including large global system integrators like Deloitte or Accenture, cloud service providers, distributors, including value-added distributors, and solution providers.

Informatica is showing it is doubling down on cloud providers like Azure and Google even as customers are moving to adopt a cloud-first approach to business. Deloitte has partnered for years with Informatica and currently has 5,000 practitioners trained on the platform. The general availability of Informatica’s new offerings is now live.
