Boston (EMC WORLD), May 12, 2010 - 

EMC Corporation (NYSE: EMC) and Informatica Corporation (NASDAQ: INFA) today announced that Informatica Information Lifecycle Management (ILM) and Master Data Management (MDM) solutions have been added to EMC® Select. Under this agreement EMC will resell Informatica ILM and MDM products and services, to further extend the value of EMC's intelligent tiered storage, archive and enterprise content management platforms.

The combination of EMC information infrastructure solutions with Informatica ILM will help customers manage the lifecycle of unstructured content and structured data to dramatically lower costs, optimize storage infrastructure and ensure long-term retention of information assets. In addition, Documentum xCP together with Informatica MDM will help customers further manage business processes while producing one record of truth about a customer, patient, product or any information asset to make better business decisions.

"Customers want to reduce costs while enhancing performance of all application data and use their strategic information assets to gain competitive advantage," said Mark Lewis, President, Information Intelligence Group, a division of EMC. "Together, EMC and Informatica will provide customers with the ability to reduce the growth of production databases and retire legacy applications related to software licenses and hardware infrastructure."

EMC and Informatica intend to provide ILM and MDM customer solutions for on-premise or cloud deployment use cases, such as:

  • Application and Data Warehouse Archiving - Enable customers to intelligently relocate dormant data from production systems to improve performance, lower costs and ensure long-term data retention.
  • Application Retirement - Support customers to fully archive legacy systems to reduce costs of redundant or obsolete applications and retain access to the historical data.
  • Master Data Management for Composite Application Development - Empower business users with a holistic, single view of foundational business entities such as customers, employees, products and other assets. MDM projects facilitate better operational efficiency, higher customer loyalty and successful compliance efforts.

"Together, EMC and Informatica will enable customers to dramatically reduce their data management costs," said Sohaib Abbasi, chairman and chief executive officer, Informatica. "With these joint offerings, our customers will gain a competitive advantage by fully leveraging all their information assets."
