Stocks in this article: INFA

Redwood City, Calif., Feb. 7, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Informatica Corporation (Nasdaq:INFA), the world's number one independent provider of data integration software, today announced that Forrester Research, Inc., a leading independent technology and market research company, has positioned Informatica as a leader in The Forrester Wave™: Master Data Management Solutions, Q1 2014.

Forrester analysts wrote in the report that Informatica was one of three vendors that "Set the Bar [and] … demonstrated strengths as a true multiplatform MDM leader," noting "Informatica's strength is universal MDM."

According to the Forrester report author, Senior Analyst Michele Goetz, writing in the report, "Past MDM implementations lacked the agility to meet new master data needs. Today's multiplatform MDM solutions take change into account, allowing organizations to implement master data strategies with room to grow for new data needs, new platforms, and new performance demands."

The Forrester Wave for Master Data Management (MDM) notes, "Informatica is extending its core capabilities, used to model, match, and govern master data of any domain, to the big data, cloud, mobile, and social identities. In addition, [Informatica] is placing more attention on developing industry-specific data management solutions and bringing industry expertise to its sales and consulting arms. This specialization helps customers link master data management to business outcomes."

Forrester analysts also noted in the report that, "Customers purchasing Informatica MDM are often looking for an out-of-the-box solution to solve particularly complex business challenges impacted by master data. … In addition, Informatica is expanding MDM content (data management solutions) beyond initial healthcare, insurance, and finance solutions to include other packaged MDM industry solutions."

According to The Forrester Wave for Master Data Management, "[Informatica] clients state its strengths are configurability, scalability, performance, and understanding of the business impact."
