Informatica and Google Cloud Expand Strategic Partnership
Optimizing Execution of Informatica Products on Google Cloud and New Support for Google Cloud Dataproc.
Informatica, the enterprise cloud data management leader, announced it is enhancing its strategic partnership with Google Cloud with broader and deeper connectivity across the Informatica Intelligent Data Platform, enabling enterprises to accelerate their data-driven digital transformation initiatives on the Google Cloud Platform.
Informatica’s support for Google Cloud now extends beyond full lifecycle API management and marketing analytics to include enhanced Google BigQuery support for pushdown optimization, which allows customers to process massive workloads, and new support for Dataproc, which enables customers to leverage and simplify native Google big data environments.
In addition, Informatica and Google Cloud will collaborate on joint sales and go-to-market opportunities, leveraging the momentum of their enterprise-scale growth with a 56x increase in year-over-year Informatica iPaaS transactions sent to Google Cloud.
Informatica will make Informatica Intelligent Cloud Services℠ (IICS), the industry-leading enterprise iPaaS, available on Google Cloud Platform for customers to transform, manage, and synchronize integrated, trusted data from any source and environment. Partnered with Google Cloud Platform’s high-performance, scalable cloud infrastructure, IICS will allow enterprises to expedite data migration to Google BigQuery, maximize the value of Google Analytics, and leverage Google Cloud’s on-demand storage and analytics to build a modern data lake and apply cloud-native APIs to integrate data and applications.
Informatica Master Data Management (MDM) will also be available as a managed service within IICS on Google Cloud. It will integrate with Google Marketing Platform to provide enterprises with a 360-degree view of critical business entities, such as customer, product, suppliers, employees and assets. This integration will support their understanding of the customer journey, predicting marketing outcomes, and will provide a single source of truth to drive exceptional customer, product, and supplier experiences across the organization.
