Informatica’s Cloud Spring 2014 is now available. Ash Kulkarni, senior vice president and general manager of Data Integration at Informatica, calls it a game-changer.
IT developers get a drag-and-drop palette for advanced integration scenarios and line-of-business applications users get a wizard-based, self-service interface – all in one unified design environment.
A complete cloud-based environment
Cloud Designer brings the power of Informatica’s integration design tools into a completely cloud-based design environment. This translates into faster time-to-value for SaaS application users, increased productivity for integration developers, and reduced IT infrastructure costs with no on-premise tools to deploy and manage.
Real-time hybrid app integration
This release also provides real-time hybrid app integration. Real time cloud-to-cloud data integrations – like Salesforce CRM to Netsuite – are processed in the cloud. Real-time cloud to on-premise integrations – like Salesforce CRM to SAP – however, can be processed both in the cloud or on-premise all depending on preferences of the customer and data privacy and regulatory requirements.
A novelty that delivers identical performance, functionality and security regardless of where the processing takes place, be it in front or behind the corporate firewall. Source: www.informatica.com
