Astadia Accelerates Informatica Partnership

Cloud Leaders to Focus on Large Enterprise and Industry Verticals

FRISCO, TX--(Marketwire - Aug 29, 2011) - Astadia, a Cloud computing systems integrator and a top, Eloqua and Xactly partner, today announced an expansion of its partnership with the world's number one independent provider of data integration software, Informatica, focused on large enterprise customers and building out solution expertise in industry verticals.

"This represents a leap forward if you're the CIO or a line of business user," said Mike Lingo, chief technical officer & senior vice president of field operations, Astadia. "You're not only receiving best-in-class data integration software; our deep Cloud implementation experience enables you to orchestrate multiple data partners and platforms. That's only going to grow in complexity in our view; a rational approach to integrating traditional on-premise data sources, cloud data stores and the proliferation of social media-generated data."

Astadia and Informatica specifically cited consulting engagements in large global telecommunication entities where enhanced data navigation and visibility, as well as automated business processes, can be accomplished in a matter of weeks, taking advantage of the award-winning Informatica Cloud and the entire Informatica Platform. In one instance, a foundation built on Informatica's Master Data Management (MDM) and staging helped Astadia agilely integrate an analytics framework, multiple data sources and core applications encompassing market demographics, customer profiles and business reporting.

"Our global customers have recognized value already," said Aaron Mieswinkel, managing principal, data management practice, Astadia, referring to joint projects completed with Informatica and several substantial enterprise engagements to be announced in the coming month within the US and UK. "The Astadia-Informatica partnership liberates business users to build a common language to speak to one another and measure success, guiding senior executives as they align business objectives with technologies through our CloudMap™ management consulting services."

"Astadia understands the critical importance of data integration as it relates to large enterprise solutions and within specific industry verticals such as global telecommunications, cable media and high-tech manufacturing," said Ron Papas, general manager, Informatica Cloud. "Informatica's partnership with Astadia, grounded in deep knowledge in vertical markets, enables large enterprises to quickly deploy cloud solutions and maximize their return by integrating them with existing IT systems and company data. This has implications for addressing both the growing volume of overall transactions and the multiple streams of data sources that globally competitive companies require."
