Informatica Corporation announced full support for the Linux operating system across its entire business analytics product family: Informatica PowerCenter data integration, Informatica Warehouse analytics and Informatica PowerAnalyzer business intelligence. Informatica now offers a complete, end-to-end Linux solution for the entire business analytics stack – from source to dashboard – at a time when Global 2000 companies are accelerating their adoption of Linux as a platform for enterprise applications.

Linux is gaining ground in enterprise computing for its ability to add flexibility to IT architectures (i.e., run any application on any server) and to reduce the costs of those architectures. Cluster-aware Informatica PowerCenter and Informatica PowerAnalyzer both provide robust scalability for expanding data integration and analytic deployments throughout an enterprise. Linux provides extremely cost-effective support for that scalability by making it easy to add low-cost computing power to Informatica implementations.

The Linux versions of Informatica PowerCenter, Informatica Warehouse and Informatica PowerAnalyzer possess the same ease of development as the Windows NT and UNIX versions of the software. Informatica PowerCenter transforms and integrates data from a wide range of systems to supply businesses with unified, 360-degree views of customers and operations stored in either custom data warehouses or in the Informatica Warehouse. This integrated information is used by Informatica PowerAnalyzer, which enables rapid and broad deployment of Web-based analytic solutions including dashboards, reporting, analysis, ad hoc query and analytic applications for CRM, supply chain management, HR and finance.

Informatica PowerCenter with certified support for Linux is available now. Linux-certified support for Informatica PowerAnalyzer will be available by end the Q2, with the release of PowerAnalyzer 4. Pricing will be consistent with the Windows NT versions of both products.
