<p>Informatica Corporation (NASDAQ: INFA), the world’s number one independent provider of data integration software, today announced Informatica 9, the first data integration platform designed to enable the data-driven enterprise. Informatica 9 is the industry’s only comprehensive, unified and open data integration platform. Informatica 9 uniquely delivers a comprehensive platform by combining products in six categories: enterprise data integration, data quality, B2B data exchange, application information lifecycle management, complex event processing and cloud computing data integration. Informatica 9 is uniquely designed to be deployed on-premise or in the internet cloud.</p>
<p>In today’s information economy, data is absolutely critical for any business survival or business revival strategy. Relevant, trustworthy and timely data is the difference between the success and failure of top business imperatives. Yet, becoming a data-driven enterprise has remained an elusive goal for many organizations.</p>
<p>In order to become data-driven enterprises, organizations face three daunting challenges: first, business users often cannot rely on IT alone for the most business-relevant information; second business users frequently do not regard the data to be trustworthy for their purposes; and third business users do not have timely access to the data in the appropriate form. Until now, these formidable challenges have often compromised the value of IT and impeded the most business-critical initiatives.</p>
<p>Informatica 9 uniquely helps organizations overcome these three challenges through business-IT collaboration, pervasive data quality and innovative SOA-based data services. Business-IT collaboration ensures that fit-for-purpose systems deliver the most business-relevant data. Pervasive data quality assures that all stakeholders can trust data for their business purposes. And, open SOA-based data services enable even more types of operational data integration projects to deliver timely data in the appropriate format. With these three breakthrough advances, Informatica 9 enables organizations to become data-driven enterprises by delivering the most business-relevant, trustworthy and timely data.</p>
<p>“Informatica 9 is a comprehensive infrastructure platform with products across six different technology categories that are unified to reduce IT costs and open to leverage data on-premise and in the internet cloud,” said Sohaib Abbasi, chairman and CEO, Informatica. “With Informatica 9, customers can gain competitive advantage with the most relevant, trustworthy and timely data as mandated by their top business imperatives.”</p>

Dennis, Director, Integration Competency Center, Nike. “We are very excited about the new and versatile capabilities of Informatica 9 and the continued business value that Nike realizes from Informatica technology.”</p>
