Informatica Innovation Awards 2019 
Frequently Asked Questions

Who can be nominated for an Innovation Award?

All Informatica customers are eligible to be nominated for an Innovation Award. In order to be considered as a recipient of an Innovation Award, either as an Honoree or Winner in a particular category, the customer must agree to the Awards Terms and Conditions which includes attending Informatica World 2019 and being named in co-marketing activities.

What should an organization be doing with their Informatica products and solutions to qualify?

Customers should be using Informatica products and solutions to manage complex data challenges and lead strategic projects within their organizations: everything from getting ready for the Internet of Things to standing up an effective data governance compliance program. There are four award categories:

Do the Informatica solutions have to be in production?

No. While we love nominations from customers that have already delivered measurable value from their Informatica solutions and services, we are also very interested in customers that are still on their journey—including working toward a go-live date. Nominations are also scored on the total vision, including the level of innovation, complexity, scope, and anticipated transformational impact to the customer’s business, market, or the world.

What’s in it for the nominee?

These awards bring visibility and high-impact awareness to the innovations and accomplishments that organizations drive with Informatica products, solutions, and services. Recognition as an Informatica Innovation Award winner or nominee provides external validation that customers can use to promote and evangelize the value of the data management program internally within their organization. It can also be used as a powerful differentiator to share with customers, employees, and shareholders, showing that the organization is doing cutting-edge work with data.

Winners and Honorees receive one complimentary pass to Informatica World 2019, which takes place from May 20-23, 2019 in Las Vegas. Their stories are shared in the press and social media throughout the event. Winners and Honorees are also invited to network with fellow intelligent data disruptors and Informatica executives during the exclusive, invitation-only 2019 Informatica Innovation Awards celebration.

Note: Only customers who can share their stories publicly will be selected as winners to facilitate learnings and sharing of best practices across the industry.

When are nominations due?

All nominations must be submitted online on February 28, 2019– 5:00 p.m. PT to be eligible for consideration.

How are the award winners selected?

Two Honorees and one Winner in each category will be selected by a team of Informatica senior executives. Submissions are evaluated based on the judging criteria outlined in the Terms and Conditions, including transformational impact, creativity and innovation, scope and complexity, and environmental or social impact. Winners and Honorees will be notified in April.

Are Partners eligible to win?

Informatica values our relationships with partners and recognizes the importance of these partnerships to our joint success. However, Innovation Awards are strictly for Informatica customers only. Partners are NOT eligible to win an Innovation Award. But we strongly encourage our partners to work with joint customers on a nomination and, with the customer’s explicit approval, submit on a customer's behalf (documented customer approval must be submitted along with the nomination). Our partners are recognized separately in the form of annual awards presented during Informatica’s Kickoff.
