History 1970s 1980s 1990s 2000s 2010s

Founded in 1978, IRI is an independent software vendor (ISV) specializing in fast data management and data-centric protection. The company's core technology and common user interfaces enable you to perform, combine, and accelerate very large data: extraction, transformation, loading, migration, replication, federation, masking, reporting, and test data generation.

As you browse through the decades of IRI history in this section, you will learn how the company got its start in high-peformance sorting, but became a technical leader in multiple disciplines. IRI credits its success to a very forward-looking IP stack, international customer feedback, and long-standing industry alliances.

IRI will continue to benefit from its history and culture of innovation and integrity, and from a growing, loyal user base that demands superior price performance, and fast responses to changing functional requirements. We look forward to welcoming you and your colleagues to the group.
