Informatica was founded in 1993 by Gaurav Dhillon and Diaz Nesamoney.[3]

On 29 April 1999, its initial public offering on the Nasdaq stock exchange listed its shares under the stock symbol INFA.[4][5]

On 7 April 2015, Permira and Canada Pension Plan Investment Board announced that a company controlled by the Permira funds and CPPIB would acquire Informatica for approximately US$5.3 billion.[6] On 6 August 2015, the acquisition was completed and Microsoft and Salesforce Ventures invested in the company as part of the deal.[7] The company's stock ceased trading on the Nasdaq effective on the same date.[8][9][7]

On 27 October 2021, Informatica again became publicly traded with the INFA stock symbol, this time listed on the NYSE, opening at $27.55 per share.[10]

In June 2023 Informatica acquired Privitar, a data management tool.[11]

In November 2023, Informatica announced a restructuring plan to focus on its cloud offerings. It permanently laid off 10% of its workforce and reduced its office space.[12]

In April 2024, the Wall Street Journal reported that Salesforce was in advanced talks to acquire Informatica at a price below its $11 billion market capitalization at the time.[13] The deal was later reported to have been abandoned.[14]

Informatica, announced on Monday that it is not engaged in acquisition talks, following earlier reports that Salesforce had expressed interest in purchasing the company for approximately $10 billion.[15]



Informatica's product portfolio is focused on data integration: extract, transform, load, information lifecycle management, business-to-business data exchange, cloud computing integration, complex event processing, data masking, data quality, data replication, data virtualization, master data management, ultra messaging, and data governance. These components form a toolset for establishing and maintaining data warehouses. It has over 9,500 customers.[2][16]

In 2006, Informatica announced a "cloud business".[17] In 2023 it announced an AI-powered data management tool[18] and began to fully transition to cloud-based offerings.[12]
