November 4, 2010 – Informatica Corporation, provider of data integration software, shares a growing momentum for the Informatica Marketplace – an online community that connects vendors, partners and individual developers to enable them to share data integration solutions within an open and comprehensive ecosystem of more than 120,000 active users.

MarketWatch brought us this news in their article, “Informatica Enhances Community Experience for 120,000 Members.” Thus far, Marketplace’s shining star is Analytix Data Services – a strategic data integration software and services company specializing in data warehousing and business intelligence solutions. The Analytix Mapping Manager is a web-based solution that enables business and data analysts to quickly consolidate and profile system metadata into a metadata and data mapping database repository. Then it leverages the metadata to build and version data mappings through the lifecycle which become clean, approved requirement inputs to Extract, Transform and Load (ETL) developers.

It will be interesting to see what else this technology magnet attracts in the future.
