Informatica: Joins forces with Microsoft

Informatica and Microsoft offer Modern Cloud Analytics program on Microsoft Azure. Plus, BizClik announces a new webinar from them!

Enterprise cloud data management leader, Informatica, have announced a joint Modern Cloud Analytics program with Microsoft Azure.

The move is designed to provide customers with lowest cost and lowest risk paths to modernise PowerCenter ETL and on-premises data warehouses to Informatica’s Intelligent Data Management Cloud (IDMC) on Azure and Azure Synapse Analytics. 


What do you get when you combine Informatica data management with Microsoft Azure's analytics?


With this new alliance of Informatica’s rich data integration capabilities with Microsoft Azure’s unified analytics platform, their customers will now have a cheaper and faster path to the benefits of cloud analytics.

The Modern Cloud Analytics program is available to joint Microsoft and Informatica PowerCenter customers migrating their on-premises data warehouse and extract, transform and load (ETL) workloads to intelligent data management centres on Azure and Azure Synapse Analytics.

Benefits also include:

  • Informatica’s Migration Factory for Informatica PowerCenter customers that automates 90% plus of existing data integration mappings to IDMC on Azure and Azure Synapse Analytics.
  • No cost access to cloud data warehousing and cloud data management experts from both Microsoft and Informatica to guide customers with best practices and ensure successful migrations.
  • Financial incentives from Microsoft and Informatica for software and professional services that significantly reduce the cost of migration.
  • The ability to purchase IDMC through Azure Marketplace, enabling customers to apply their entire IDMC subscription to their Microsoft Azure Consumption Commitment agreement.

He continued to say: "we’re focused on delivering a cloud data management platform that helps our customers re-imagine their business in incredibly innovative ways.”

Scott Guthrie, Executive Vice President, Cloud + AI, Microsoft, was equally praiseworthy, commenting that “Microsoft and Informatica share a cloud-first vision and are committed to helping our customers accelerate their cloud migration journey.”
