Informatica Cloud in the Spotlight

Merv Adrian has posted a thorough post on Informatica’s recent earnings announcement as well as the news about the company’s acquisition of Siperian for master data management (MDM). The article also goes into quite a bit of detail about the Informatica Cloud. If your organization is considering integrating software as a service (SaaS) apps like Salesforce CRM with on-premise systems, here are a few key points from the post that you should know about Informatica’s data integration as a service solutions:

  • The buyer for cloud integration solutions is typically “outside of IT in administrative and sales, marketing and support operations roles.”
  • “Integration jobs that run in Informatica’s cloud already number 20,000 per day.”
  • “500 customers were using the service in December 2009. Informatica Cloud won Salesforce’s “AppExchange product of the year” for the second year in a row.”

Here’s a video about the partnership that the two companies have established:

Informatica Cloud Product Details (covered in the post):

  • “For the Informatica Cloud Services, a simple visual GUI runs in the cloud, showing how local data connects directly to the data within Salesforce and other cloud application environments.”
  • “Informatica Cloud’s “secure agent requires only 80 Mb and is self-updating and self-upgrading.”
  • “There is a scheduler, and for more sophisticated uses, it’s possible to export content into XML files and bring it into a local PowerCenter environment.”
  • Data quality assessment is available now– leveraging specific profiling services for Salesforce – enhancing a user’s account contact opportunity or lead, and providing a scoring mechanism.”
