"Informatica was founded on the basic principle of helping organizations use data as a strategic asset for competitive advantage," states Gaurav Dhillon, president and CEO of Informatica Corporation. "We have been fortunate to have products that have consistently earned a reputation by customers of being the most innovative in the market because they solve very fundamental problems that persist in every organization – vast accumulated corporate data in disparate transactional systems with challenges in integrating, synthesizing and analyzing that data effectively. We have progressed from not just providing the industry's leading back-end data integration infrastructure, but also a modern, front-end BI [business intelligence] and analytics platform for the Internet generation. This combination is the Informatica magic – and that's what we want everyone to know."

Founded in 1993 and headquartered in Redwood City, California, data integration has always been Informatica's core area of expertise. Building on that strength, Informatica is now also a leading provider of end-to-end business analytics solutions – comprised of data integration, data warehousing and business intelligence software – that enable companies to monitor and manage the performance of key business operations. Informatica business analytics products span the entire "build-to-buy" spectrum, enabling Informatica customers to build their own best-of-breed data warehousing solutions or buy a prepackaged, fully extensible, business analytics solution. Currently, more than 1,700 companies around the world use Informatica data integration software to build and manage data warehouses.
