In a move that will dramatically expand customers' access to diverse data types across the enterprise, Informatica Corporation announced a comprehensive OEM, technology and marketing partnership with Itemfield, the leader in next-generation data-transformation software. Under this agreement, Informatica will seamlessly embed core Itemfield technology within the Informatica PowerCenter data integration platform, thus delivering the first unified platform for processing all forms of unstructured, semi-structured and structured data across the enterprise.

It is estimated that unstructured data -- such as e-mail, Word files, spreadsheets, presentations and PDF documents -- accounts for up to 90 percent of the information stored in enterprises today.  And semi-structured data, which includes industry-standard formats -- such as HL7 and HIPAA in health care, SWIFT in financial services and ACORD in insurance -- is also widespread and increasingly relied upon in today's automated business environments.
