Aggregating Salesforce Data with a Cloud Integration Template

Recently Informatica announced the availability of Cloud Integration Templates with the Summer 2012 release. I sat down with the lead product manager for this area of the product line and published the interview on the Informatica Perspectives blog. He described Cloud Integration Templates this way:

“In the world of mash-ups you have charts, components you bring into your framework. You size them and set certain attributes and it works. If you think of integration processes this way and define a Salesforce CRM to Netsuite integration as a Template for example, you should be able to just drop it in and it works (assuming the cloud connectivity is supported). Mash-up builders make it easy to build apps rapidly. What Cloud Integration Templates do is allow you to abstract integration processes so the developers can work with only what they need.”

I wanted to post an example of a Cloud Integration Template that has already become quite popular on the Informatica Marketplace – The Salesforce Aggregator Template.  From the Marketplace description:

The Salesforce Aggregator Template allows you to aggregate data using aggregation functions such as SUM, MIN, and MAX on any desired dataset. As a result, you can build summaries of a dataset from various field-level details. You can also perform mathematical and/or transactional operations between different source fields and place the result in a target.”

Here’s a video of the Cloud Integration Template in action. They are available to anyone taking a 30 day Informatica Cloud trial and in the Basic, Standard and Enterprise editions.
