Vendors should only be allowed to go "cloud-native" once, no matter how many times they try to pull off the publicity trick. We can decide later how we'll police this house rule – electrical clamps to the nodes, anyone? – but for now let's look a recent suspect: Informatica.
At its annual shindig this week, held online like 2020's affair because of COVID-19, the 28-year-old data integration vendor launched its Intelligent Data Management Cloud (IDMC). The accompanying guff says it is "micro-services based and API-driven" and able to scale with "elastic and serverless processing."
"The IDMC takes cloud-native to the next level, offering all services in a single cloud-native platform for data integration, app and API integration and data management," it said.
