Informatica Positioned Highest and Farthest to the Right on Ability to Execute and Completeness of Vision Axes, Respectively

Redwood City, Calif., April 23, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

  • Informatica believes its continued leadership is showcased in the iPaaS market with its position as a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for five consecutive years
  • Informatica feels that it offers the most comprehensive Hybrid Integration Platform (HIP) to support critical business initiatives such as delivering a comprehensive view of the customer
  • According to Gartner, “By 2021, enterprise iPaaS will be the largest market segment in application integration middleware, potentially consuming the traditional software delivery model along the way.”

Informatica®, the enterprise cloud data management leader, today announced that Gartner, Inc., a leading IT research and advisory firm, has, for the fifth consecutive year, positioned Informatica as a Leader in its Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Integration Platform as a Service1. In the 2018 report, Informatica is positioned the highest on the ability to execute axis and farthest to the right on the completeness of vision axis.

The complete report, including the Magic Quadrant graphic, was published on April 18, and is available at

According to the Gartner report: “Today's reality is that application portfolios are now hybrid, with many organizations having to integrate multicloud environments with on-premises applications.”

In the report, “Gartner estimates that the iPaaS market continued to expand notably during 2017, approaching $1,200 million in revenue and growing approximately 70% in terms of providers’ subscription revenue when compared with 2016.”

The authors of the Gartner report recommend that, “During the next 12 months, application leaders responsible for integration should look at the providers in this Magic Quadrant when it comes to:

  • Supporting line-of-business/departmental adaptive CSI, B2B, API, MAI and, increasingly, IoT projects.
  • Looking for rapid and low-cost resolution of simple/medium complexity integration requirements.
  • Reducing capital investments in, and ongoing operational costs for, integration technology.
  • Complementing established on-premises integration middleware with platforms targeting CSI, MAI, IoT and API requirements. This, in order to implement an HIP, in the context of a bimodal integration strategy, and to support both traditional systematic and adaptive integration requirements, including the facilitation of citizen integrators where appropriate.”

In addition to being positioned highest on the ability to execute axis and farthest to the right on the completeness of vision axis in the Gartner 2018 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Integration Platform as a Service, Gartner has named Informatica a Leader in four other markets – in four Gartner Magic Quadrants*:
