Outside-In or Inside-Out Cloud Integration?

Last year Ron Papas, the GM of Informatica Cloud, wrote an interesting blog post called, Salesforce.com Integration – Inside Out or Outside In? He broke it down this way:

  • Inside-Out Integration Solution: “Also known as an on premise solution is one that is installed inside a company’s firewall on a server (or a vendor provided appliance) and maintained by IT…. a good fit for organizations where the Salesforce integration work will be implemented and managed by a skilled Systems Integrator or IT resource.”
  • Outside-In Integration Solution:  “Also known as an On Demand or Cloud based solution is installed in the cloud and maintained by the integration vendor… ideal for organizations with limited IT resources that will rely on their Salesforce Administrator or a line of business analyst to do that work.”

He recently spoke a little more about this concept in this DreamSimplicity video from the All About the Cloud conference in San Francisco.
