Dell and Informatica have partnered to help businesses in the healthcare and financial services take advantage of new and advanced offerings in Information Lifecycle Management (ILM), Master Data Management (MDM) and Big Data. The companies will leverage each other’s capabilities to deliver a combination of technology and business expertise to help customers achieve and maintain consistent, accurate, shared data across critical domains.

As a part of the agreement, Dell will enter Informatica’s Global System Integrators Alliance Program. This program is a globally recognized group of select consulting companies that provide joint investment, deep and proven delivery capabilities, and executive commitment to the Informatica product line, including the Informatica Intelligent Data Platform, on a worldwide scale.

The relationship with Informatica is an extension of the Dell Services Business Innovation portfolio, which includes a full suite of social media, business intelligence, and analytics, mobility and cloud application services. Dell continues to strengthen capabilities in these areas to deliver digital transformation to customers, including users of Dell’s own technology.

The alliance complements Dell’s existing Information Management solutions such as the recently announced acquisition of StatSoft, a leading provider of advanced analytics solutions that deliver a wide range of data mining, predictive analytics and data visualization capabilities.

“We will continue to focus on our customers’ future and how IT can help them get to where they need to go to achieve their business goals, as well as actively listening to understand our customers’ needs and business environment,” said Suresh Vaswani, president of Services, Dell. “It’s with this in mind that we continue to expand our business intelligence offerings, and this partnership with Informatica is an important part of that effort.”

“The common vision that Dell and Informatica share in the vertical markets will benefit our joint customers as we deliver the promise of Big Data,” said Brad Kern, senior vice president, Worldwide Alliances, Informatica. “Having Dell join our Global System Integrators Alliance is a great addition to the program. This collaboration will help uncover the many synergistic opportunities that exist between the two companies and ultimately benefit customers by helping them gain a competitive advantage in today’s global information economy.”
