Informatica , the leader in enterprise cloud data management, today announced its Intelligent Data Management Cloud (IDMC), the industry’s first end-to-end platform for AI -supported data management to make available on Microsoft Azure Germany and to react to the growth of cloud customers in Europe
In the past year, the adoption of cloud solutions by companies accelerated. The increased digitization to maintain business continuity during the pandemic contributed to this. However, data transfer restrictions and data localization requirements have slowed this transition down. With the new IDMC pod on Azure Germany, customers now have an additional option for the data location and have the opportunity to use their data innovatively to further develop their business.
“Over the past year, organizations of all types, both private and public, have accelerated their move to the cloud to maintain business continuity and make the company more resilient,” said Rik Tam-Daniels , VP Strategic Ecosystems & Technology , Informatica. “Today’s announcement with Microsoft gives our European customers more choice and enables them to leverage the power of the Intelligent Data Management Cloud to manage and innovate their data.”
In addition to the IDMC pod that was introduced on Microsoft Azure Germany, an additional IDMC pod is now available on Azure Southeast Asia, which further expands the reach of Informatica’s cloud data management offerings. These new pods build on a collaboration between Informatica and Azure that has already had other successes: it grew 109% year over year in 2020.
“We want to support our customers in driving their digital transformation and provide a cloud service that enables customers to manage their data and use it innovatively in the way that is best for their company,” says Jens Hansen , General Manager EMEA, Data & AI at Microsoft. “Our partnership with Informatica gives our mutual customers access to industry-leading cloud data management that enables compliance with local regulations.”
