Informatica expands APAC footprint with Azure

Informatica has launched its Intelligent Data Management Cloud (IDMC) platform on Microsoft Azure to expand its footprint in the Asia-Pacific region.

The move follows Informatica and Azure’s collaboration which grew 109 percent year-on-year in 2020.

IDMC on Azure enables customers and partners the flexibility and scalability needed to accelerate swiftly to the cloud, with data at the centre of the transformation while allowing for local data residency compliance and data sovereignty in the country.

“As we see the demand for cloud applications accelerate during this unprecedented pandemic, businesses must now face the biggest challenge of managing and governing the volume of highly fragmented data, driven by this shift. Customers and partners can now trust the Informatica Intelligent Data Management Cloud on Microsoft Azure to be part of their cloud-first, cloud-native transformation strategy as they move to unleash the power of data from a trusted cloud environment,” said, Rik Tamm-Daniels, Vice President, Strategic Ecosystems and Technology at Informatica.

Available on Azure Marketplace, IDMC on Azure lets customers and partners on board quickly and easily with the Informatica Cloud Data Integration service which processes up to 500 million rows of data per month at no charge.

“It’s great to see Informatica and Microsoft partnering to help customers in Asia accelerate their journey to the cloud. With Informatica’s IDMC now locally available to Azure Southeast Asia region and wider Asia Pacific markets, this move is going to help by opening up more choices for enterprises as they embark on their cloud data management journey,” said Linus Lai, Vice President for Software and Services Research Group at IDC Asia/Pacific.
