Check out this post on the Perspectives Blog: “Introducing Informatica Cloud 9 – The Defining Capability For Cloud Computing.”
This paragraph says it all:
“Cloud computing is re-defining IT and data integration needs to follow-suit. It is data integration that will be THE defining capability for cloud computing – not outsourced datacenters, or sexy new application solutions. So, to really embrace cloud computing, one needs a whole new way of delivering enterprise data integration that brings together the ease of use that business users require with the sophistication that must be delivered for IT architects. Otherwise cloud computing will simply remain the domain of non-critical fancy-looking applications on the periphery of true enterprise business requirements.”
