Apr 11, 2001, 01:00 ET from Informatica Corporation

    PALO ALTO, Calif., April 11 /PRNewswire/ --
 Informatica Corporation (Nasdaq: INFA), the leading provider of eBusiness
 analytic solutions, today announced the launch of Informatica Applications,
 the industry's only cross-value chain family of analytic applications, to the
 European market.  Available in the U.S. since last June, Informatica
 Applications is unique in its ability to integrate and analyze key information
 from across a company's functional business areas, providing decision-makers
 with a valuable 360-degree view of their business.
     The Informatica Applications family -- Informatica eCRM, eBusiness
 Operations, eProcurement and eMarketplace -- is the only integrated family of
 analytic applications that allows businesses to evaluate their customer,
 partner, employee and supplier relationships across the entire value chain.
 This comprehensive view of the company is critical in order to maximize
 business performance and drive profitability across today's extended
 enterprise.
     "The greatest value for an organization lies in being able to perform
 analysis across the entire commerce chain," said Dr. Wolfgang Martin, senior
 vice president, Application Delivery Strategies, Meta Group. "This extends
 from suppliers, through internal operations, to customers. Meta Group
 identifies as analytic applications the class of software that instantiates
 the key metrics necessary to measure and then manage the performance of a
 business process.  Leaders in this space must provide analytic applications
 that deliver integrated analysis that spans the commerce chain, giving a
 comprehensive view of every aspect of business performance of D2D (department
 to department) and B2B (business to business) collaboration."
     With the introduction of Informatica Applications to the European market,
 Informatica continues to strengthen its presence in Europe.  As of the end of
 March, the company's European customer base has topped 350.  Also, within the
 last eighteen months, operations have been established in Switzerland, the
 Netherlands and Belgium through the acquisition of former distributors.  These
 newly acquired partners join a strong base of existing operations within the
 United Kingdom and Germany, as well as an extensive network of resellers and
 partners throughout Europe.
