Informatica And Ultimate Software Expand Relationship To Make HCM Connectivity Easier And More Cost-Efficient

REDWOOD CITY, Calif., March 13, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Informatica Corporation (Nasdaq:INFA), the world's number one independent provider of data integration software, today announced that it is expanding its relationship with Ultimate Software, a leading cloud provider of people management systems, to make human capital management (HCM) data connections available as a self-service solution for Ultimate customers.

The planned capabilities build on the success of the UltiPro Carrier Network (UCN).  Delivered in 2012 leveraging the Informatica B2B Data Exchange and other components of the Informatica Platform, the UCN now offers more than 100 packaged connectors to benefits carriers and other third-party solutions that are key to people management.

The two companies plan to implement Informatica Cloud data integration to provide UltiPro customers with visual tools for creating, deploying and managing secure data connectors in the Cloud.

"We are taking our partnership to the next level by embedding Informatica Cloud's integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS) into UltiPro to provide self-service data access to their 2,500 customers," said Juan Carlos Soto, senior vice president and general manager, Cloud Integration, Informatica. "Our partnership with Ultimate demonstrates how cloud integration is increasingly a strategic differentiator for SaaS providers across a number of market segments to enable their customers to unlock the potential of their data and rapidly expand solutions available as cloud services."   

Ultimate Software's UltiPro HCM solution manages more than 10 million employee records across more than 2,500 organizations worldwide. Its people management solutions enable organizations to optimize their human capital management cycle - from recruitment to retirement. Ultimate's UltiPro combines HR, payroll and talent management in a single solution that seamlessly connects people globally with the information and resources they need to work more effectively.

Part of Ultimate's program to accelerate cloud integration of HCM across the business ecosystem, the new UltiPro Carrier Network now has more than 100 connectors to third-party organizations and applications in place. In partnering with Informatica to power the UltiPro Carrier Network, Ultimate is able to provide customers with flexible, pre-built cloud integration templates that accelerate and simplify connectivity with medical, dental, vision and other benefits providers, as well as with other third parties.

"For the HR organization, integration is a business decision, not an IT project," said Adam Rogers CTO, Ultimate Software. "In partnering with Informatica, we are making it easier, faster and less costly for customers to collaborate and integrate with more third-party entities of their choosing. We look forward to continue working with Informatica in bringing self-service integration to cloud HCM."
