IDC MarketScape Recognizes Informatica as a Leader in Data Catalog Solutions
REDWOOD CITY, Calif., August 18, 2022 — Informatica, a leader in enterprise cloud data management, has again been recognized as a Leader in the IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Data Catalog Software Vendor Assessment. This IDC MarketScape includes 13 select data catalog vendors and notes that Informatica’s market presence, common metadata base, and strong cloud capabilities are differentiators that have helped it position itself in the Leaders category.
“Collecting and curating data intelligence is non-trivial in modern highly distributed, diverse and dynamic data environments,” said Stewart Bond, research vice president, Data Integration and Software Research at data intelligence at IDC. “Informatica is a leader with its scale and ability to analyze and index metadata, discover and profile data, and provide detailed lineage across tens of millions of datasets.”
The IDC MarketScape assessment highlights Informatica’s strengths, including:
- COMMERCIAL presence: Informatica holds the largest revenue share in the overall data intelligence and integration software market as defined by IDC. Informatica also holds the largest revenue share in metadata management and data intelligence submarkets, as these markets are defined and reported in Worldwide Data Integration and Intelligence Software Market Shares, 2021: Accelerated Growth in a Digital-First World (IDC #US47920522, June 2022).
- A common metadata base: Informatica’s Intelligent Data Management Cloud feature portfolio is built on a common foundation of metadata, captured and generated within the platform whenever data is moved, transformed, cleansed, controlled, and managed throughout of their life cycle. Informatica’s Core Intelligence Engine (CLAIRE) learns from this common metadata base to automate data intelligence, integration, management, and governance activities.
- Cloud: Informatica supports multiple deployment models on all major hyperscale platforms. Intelligent Data Management Cloud is available as a service, including certain serverless functions, managed by Informatica. It can also be deployed and managed by a customer on their cloud infrastructure of choice, or it can be deployed on-premises.
“Not all data catalogs are created equal. Some catalogs give you visibility into data only from a single tool or ecosystem. Others have narrow metadata capabilities and are unable to perform a broad enough analysis to uncover all of your data. Or they can be narrowed down to one use case,” said Jitesh Ghai, Chief Product Officer at Informatica. “We offer an enterprise-class catalog of catalogs to complement a customer’s system-specific or use-case catalogs with universal metadata connectivity to all data sources.”
