Over the past five years, Informatica has pivoted from an ETL, license-driven data pioneer to a subscription-focused SaaS cloud data management leader with $1.4 billion in revenue for 2021. This involved completely re-engineering its offering from a suite of on-premise data products to delivering the industry’s first AI-powered, end-to-end cloud data management platform that connects, manages and unifies data across any multi-cloud, hybrid system.
Launched in April 2021, powered by Informatica’s AI engine, CLAIRE, the Intelligent Data Management Cloud (IDMC) is designed to help businesses innovate with their data on any platform, any cloud, multi-cloud, and multi-hybrid. It is an end-to-end, cloud-native, AI-powered platform that helps businesses move from simply modernizing to truly transforming for a digital world. With adoption growing rapidly, the IDMC processed 27.8 trillion cloud transactions per month for the quarter ending 31 December 2021.
