Informatica looks perky

Informatica announced an excellent set of quarterly results, demonstrating continuing rude health. Revenue of $94M was a spanking 17% up on the same time last year. License revenue was up 15% at $41M, so the improvement was more than just good services revenue. Eight deals over $1 million compared to nine last time, but deals over $300k were massively up with 35 compared to just 9 a year ago. There was also a major OEM deal, with SAP now going to OEM Informatica, a rare exception to their usual not invented here attitude. This is a good move for both parties.

The results were broad-based, with Informatica’s international operations doing particularly well. These results are a sign of continuing broad based good conditions n the broader BI market. When ETL prospers, data warehouses and BI tools are not far behind.
