Netherlands’ largest postal provider selects PowerCenter to help drive business agility and ensure regulatory compliance

Informatica Corporation (NASDAQ: INFA), a leading provider of data integration software, today announced that Postkantoren BV, the largest postal outlet service in the Netherlands, has selected Informatica PowerCenter Advanced Edition as its enterprise data integration standard. A long-time PowerCenter customer, Postkantoren is upgrading to PowerCenter Advanced Edition for comprehensive visibility across its operations—including 800 post offices—in order to streamline data management, increase business responsiveness and help ensure international regulatory compliance.

"Standardizing on PowerCenter Advanced Edition was an easy choice because of the platform's unified capabilities for data integration, metadata analysis and reporting," said Ger van der Geld, migration project lead at Postkantoren. "In our current business and regulatory environment, it is critical that business processes and data flows be completely and demonstrably controlled. With PowerCenter Advanced Edition, we will be able to trace everything that happens to our information, from its creation to its use, in order to drive accuracy, agility and control across all our data-driven business initiatives."

Postkantoren will use PowerCenter Advanced Edition to anchor a variety of strategic projects, including a massive new initiative to automate all its postal service points across the Netherlands. In addition to providing broad data integration functionality for these projects, PowerCenter will increase visibility into how and where data is used within the company, and will enable administrators to quickly and accurately assess the impact of system and data changes—thus helping to simplify and streamline Postkantoren's overall data management.

"More than just integrating data, PowerCenter Advanced Edition delivers a unified platform for optimizing the entire data integration lifecycle at organizations such as Postkantoren," said Dave Berry, senior vice president of EMEA, Informatica. "We are delighted in Postkantoren's decision to upgrade to PowerCenter Advanced Edition, which can help them reduce IT costs and complexity while achieving a single, consistent enterprise-wide view of information."
