Cognos and Informatica have announced a strategic relationship; Cognos will sell and support Informatica Data Quality and Data Explorer products, and the two companies will "team to jointly provide customers with data integration capabilities" with a focus on performance management (rather than the wider data integration market?).
Interesting that Informatica's front page still highlights the May press release about being granted an injunction against Business Objects, while Cognos includes this release on its front page. A minor difference in marketing communications, or a subtle indication of who is the senior partner?
