By Shannon Williams
Fri 27 May 2022

Informatica has announced a strategic partnership with Oracle that brings Informatica's data integration and governance products to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. 

In addition, Oracle has named Informatica as a preferred partner for enterprise cloud data integration and data governance for data warehouse and lakehouse solutions on OCI. 

Through this initiative, Oracle and Informatica have integrated Informatica's Intelligent Data Management Cloud with Oracle Autonomous Database, Oracle Exadata Database Service, Oracle Exadata Cloud@Customer, and Oracle Object Storage. 

Informatica and Oracle plan to make these offerings available in the Oracle Cloud Marketplace.

"The Oracle and Informatica strategic global partnership will deliver industry-leading cloud data management, integration, and governance solutions for databases, data warehouses, data lakes, data lakehouses, enterprise analytics, and data science. For thousands of joint Oracle and Informatica customers, this new partnership facilitates data platform modernisation by moving on-premises workloads to OCI. This will enable them to gain insights from trusted data at scale and leverage their existing skills and investments.

"Oracle Autonomous Database is the leading database platform for all operational and analytical use cases," says  Andrew Mendelsohn, executive vice president, Database Server Technologies at Oracle. 

"Informatica is a recognised leader in enterprise data integration and governance. With our complementary offerings, Oracle and Informatica will help organisations modernise and deploy new analytics capabilities on OCI regardless of where the data resides," he says, 

"This strategic partnership brings compelling value to our joint customers with the fastest, most cost-effective path to OCI. Once on OCI, they can rapidly innovate to bring better analytics and data science to their organisations."

 Jitesh Ghai, chief product officer, Informatica, adds, "We are honoured to be an Oracle preferred partner for enterprise cloud data integration and data governance for data warehouse and lakehouse solutions on OCI and are excited to bring the power of Informaticas AI-powered, cloud-native, Intelligent Data Management Cloud to OCI. 

"This partnership will enable our joint customers to gain tangible business and technology benefits from our combined software and services," he says.

Informaticas IDMC is a cloud-native data management platform that currently supports major clouds, providing customers with increased flexibility and control over their data in both hybrid and multi-cloud environments. 

The new partnership is designed to help customers:

Simplify migrations to OCI
Building on Informatica's highly successful Cloud Data Warehouse Modernisation program, this new partnership offers customers additional benefits targeting simplified migration of on-premises applications and data warehouses to the cloud, compared with unassisted migration. Informatica offers automated Migration Factory, and maintenance and professional services incentives. Oracle offers free database migration tools, BYOL (bring your on-prem licenses to cloud), Oracle Support Rewards, and migration experts from Oracle Cloud Lift Services. In addition, Informatica customers are eligible for professional service incentives from Accenture and other global system integrators.

Enhance data governance capabilities on OCI with IDMC
IDMC provides OCI customers with access to hundreds of data sources, along with multi-cloud, and hybrid data management capabilities. This will enable customers to benefit from a common data management platform and governance layer across all of their cloud and on-premises data architectures. IDMC also provides comprehensive data management services, including application integration, mass ingestion, ETL and ELT, as well as data quality and cleansing with intelligent automation provided by CLAIRE, Informatica's AI engine.
