Redwood City, Calif., July 28, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Informatica Corporation (Nasdaq:INFA), the world's number one independent provider of data integration software, today announced that it has been positioned as a leader in The Forrester Wave™: Big Data Streaming Analytics Platforms, Q3 2014. Streaming analytics include both development tools to create streaming applications and a runtime platform that enables business users to exploit perishable insights from high velocity data streams.
The complete report is available at http://www.informatica.com/us/big-data-forrester-wave/.
Forrester describes streaming analytics as software that can filter, aggregate, enrich, and analyze a high throughput of data from multiple disparate live data sources and in any data format to identify simple and complex patterns to visualize business in real-time, detect urgent situations, and automate immediate actions. The report states, "The high velocity, white-water flow of data from innumerable real-time data sources such as market data, Internet of Things, mobile, sensors, clickstream, and even transactions remain largely unnavigated by most firms. The opportunity to leverage streaming analytics has never been greater."
Forrester further noted that, "Informatica infuses its first-class business rules engine with streaming capabilities. Informatica loves data. It eats it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner through its well-known integration technologies … [Informatica] is one of two vendors evaluated in this Forrester Wave that enables developers to gracefully author streaming applications using both business rules and streaming operator constructs built-into the platform."
"Informatica makes it easy to turn real-time streaming data into actionable information," said Ash Kulkarni, senior vice president and general manager, Data Integration, Informatica. "Open source technologies like Hadoop are great for manipulating large volumes of data in batch, but the open source solutions for real-time streaming are too difficult to use and fall far short of what is required for production environments. Informatica's big data solutions give you the best of both worlds; with a high-throughout, real-time, streaming analytics platform that complements the batch capabilities of Hadoop to deliver the industry's most comprehensive big data platform."
