    REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Nov. 28 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Informatica
 Corporation (Nasdaq:   INFA), a leading provider of data integration software,
 today announced that the company has been named the worldwide revenue market
 leader in ETL for the fourth year in a row in Gartner's November 14, 2005
 report, "Market Share and Forecast: ETL Tools, Worldwide, 2004-2009."
 According to the report, Informatica captured 25 percent of the ETL market,
 highlighting a strong revenue increase of 10.8 percent from 2003.
     "We are delighted to be named once again the market leader by Gartner.  We
 believe this report confirms our successful strategy to focus solely on the
 data integration market," said Karen Steele, vice president of corporate
 marketing for Informatica.  "With two consecutive record revenue quarters and
 the introduction of PowerCenter 8, our most innovative launch to date, we
 believe Informatica is on track to address the data integration industry as it
 expands beyond the traditional realm of data warehousing to encompass a much
 broader market that includes data migration, data consolidation, data
 synchronization, Integration Competency Centers and cross-enterprise data
 integration projects."
     In the report, Gartner states: "The ETL market experienced stronger than
 expected growth in 2004 and the first half of 2005 as it began to evolve into
 a market of multipurpose data integration platforms suitable for use beyond
 the traditional domain of business intelligence (BI) and data warehousing."
 Gartner also noted that "Organizations are beginning to reconsider the costs
 and challenges of integrating data through custom coding.  As a result, they
 are looking for commercial data integration software to automate data
 warehousing, data migration, data consolidation, master data management and
 data synchronization."
