REDWOOD CITY, Calif., March 15, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Informatica, the enterprise cloud data management leader, today announced the availability of its serverless, Spark-based Cloud Data Integration engine that offers accelerated performance using the NVIDIA RAPIDS Accelerator for Apache Spark with NVIDIA accelerated computing.

For the first time users have access to end-to-end machine learning operations (MLOps) capabilities by operationalizing machine learning models, and to the power of data management with the scalability and speed delivered by RAPIDS data science software and NVIDIA infrastructure. This is a big milestone on the road toward data democratization and a critical step to scale up digital transformation efforts.

According to Gartner, “Forty-one percent of employees outside of corporate IT are no longer just ‘end users’ of technology. They are technology producers who customize or build their own analytics or technology solutions to support their work.“1 These technology producers perform advanced analytics and manage vast datasets, resulting in data democratization. But for this to be successful, companies need to provide these users access to timely and accurate data.

Informatica is the industry’s first cloud data management company offering citizen integrators, data engineers, machine learning engineers, and data scientists alike zero overhead, zero coding data access through serverless multicloud data management while applying NVIDIA’s revolutionary GPU acceleration to Informatica’s MLOps and DataOps workloads.

“Data science is the backbone of AI, as it is key to transforming oceans of enterprise data into business opportunities,” said Manuvir Das, Head of Enterprise Computing, NVIDIA. “Informatica’s integration of RAPIDS Accelerator for Apache Spark with NVIDIA accelerated computing brings the world’s most advanced infrastructure to the many industries that rely on Informatica’s enterprise cloud data management solutions, enabling customers to speed their data science and AI pipelines across their cloud and on-prem data centers.”

“Data democratization is the holy grail of digital transformation initiatives,” said Jitesh Ghai, Chief Product Officer, Informatica. “You can’t leverage the power of data and gain valuable insights if you are restricted in your data access. Our collaboration with NVIDIA is valuable to us in bringing enterprise-scale data democratization and narrowing the gap between the data-haves and the data-have-nots within the enterprise. This important milestone with NVIDIA shows our continued commitment to unlock the value of data embedded in organizations across all levels and more importantly empower all key users to gain faster business-critical insights and operationalize data analytics and data science projects at scale.”
