Informatica and Carahsoft Technology recently announced a partnership to distribute Informatica’s products to the public sector.

Carahsoft says it will distribute Informatica‘s enterprise cloud data management and integration platform through various government and educational contracts.

Founded in 2004 and headquartered in Reston, Virginia, Carahsoft is a privately held company with an extensive network of more than 3,000 reseller partners, system integrators and manufacturers that offers IT solutions to the U.S. and Canadian government markets.

Carahsoft has established long-term relationships with VMware, Red Hat, SAP, Splunk, ServiceNow, and Google Cloud among others. The company supports more than 200 additional manufacturers with its IT solutions. In addition, Carahsoft caters to sectors like education, healthcare, critical infrastructure, not-for-profit organizations, and even the commercial market.

Bill Kurtz, Vice President of Public Sector Sales at Informatica, expressed enthusiasm about the partnership, highlighting the pivotal role of efficient and accurate cloud data management in ensuring government agencies’ operational success. “Having accurate and efficient AI-powered cloud data management is critical for Government agencies to achieve mission success, allowing agencies to securely and seamlessly migrate their assets to the cloud,” he stated.

Informatica is hoping public sector entities will use its data management platform via Carahsoft to smooth the path for transferring government digital assets to the cloud, which could enhance the way agencies handle large datasets, making it easier to leverage analytics for informed decision-making and improved public services.

In order to access Informatica’s solutions, public sector entities can utilize Carahsoft’s contracts. These include collaborations and agreements with a variety of partners, covering the GSA Schedule, NASA Solutions for Enterprise-Wide Procurement (SEWP) V, the National Association of State Procurement Officials (NASPO) ValuePoint, the E&I Cooperative Services Contract, and The Quilt contracts.

“We are proud to make Informatica’s innovative cloud solutions available to the Public Sector through this partnership,” said Elizabeth Savage, Sales Director leading the Informatica Team at Carahsoft. “As the Public Sector continues its transition to cloud environments, it is critical that it utilizes the best technology available. Through our numerous contracts and reseller partnerships, we enable Public Sector customers to leverage the tools they need to migrate to the cloud securely and efficiently.”

By offering a seamless and secure transition to cloud technologies, the collaboration between Informatica and Carahsoft has the potential to enhance the operational capabilities of government and educational institutions.

And fostering a more informed, efficient, and responsive public service could set a new standard for government IT infrastructure.
