Informatica, a leader in enterprise cloud data management, has launched its Intelligent Data Management Cloud (IDMC) in the Middle East, marking the first time the platform has been made available in the region. The move includes the establishment of a new Point of Delivery (PoD) in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, which underlines the company’s commitment to offering local, scalable cloud-first data management services. This follows a multi-year strategic framework agreement with Abu Dhabi Digital Authority (ADDA) signed during GITEX Global in October 2021 to support its Data Enablement Program and provide data management services to Abu Dhabi government entities.
Jitesh Ghai, Chief Product Officer at Informatica, said, “With the launch of our first IDMC Pod in the Middle East, Informatica and its regional partners will enable customers to unlock the value of their data while ensuring that it remains secure, well-governed and in the region if necessary. This region astounds with the speed and capacity for growth it consistently displays and to that end, we look forward to supporting the UAE government’s strategic goals and vision related to data democracy”.
IDMC is a comprehensive cloud-native data management platform that allows enterprises to view, analyze and collaborate on their data regardless of location or platform. Powered by Claire, Informatica’s AI platform, IDMC helps organizations accelerate innovation and increase productivity at scale. With the launch of the UAE PoD, customers can enjoy the full range of services, including the Cloud Data Marketplace, which is designed to increase data sharing, improve productivity and help organizations make more informed decisions.
