We launched Informatica University onDemand two weeks ago and it is an entirely new offering for both our company and our customers. As we were building the program, I was reminded of Tom Hanks in the movie Castaway when he rubbed two sticks together to make fire.

Sometimes when I watch TV, even with hundreds of channels, I believe I am going to find something interesting to watch and am often mistaken. With onDemand television programming, I can always find what I want, when I want it and watch it on my own time. When I want to pause, I pause. When I want to save, I save. It is what I want, when I want it and it is easy to find what I am looking for because things are organized clearly.
