Deutsche Bank downgraded Informatica (NASDAQ: INFA) from Buy to Hold with a price target of $35.00 (from $53.00).

Deutsche analyst said, "Downgrading based on key concerns: 1) Execution likely lags with a new unit head since in Europe (since last April), in financial services 9since last Nov), and slower ASP growth (inconsistent ASP growth since the last 3 quarters, after posting consistent double digit growth till 2Q11) 2) Potential share losses to large competition in the form of IBM (NYSE: IBM) (which integrated all recent acquisitions under single platform), and open-source at the low-end (largest competition has been growing 100% y/y for last couple of years) 3) Limited tailwinds from adoption of Big Data/Hadoop in enterprises."

Deutsche analyst lowers FY12 revenue/EPS by $50M/$0.19 and FY13 by $82M/$0.18.
