Informatica Corporation (Nasdaq:INFA), the world’s number one independent provider of data integration software, today announced Informatica Cloud Salesforce1 QuickStart Integration for SAP Solutions, the first enterprise-class business integration solution optimized for SAP and the new Salesforce1 Mobile App.

The new Informatica offering makes it easier than ever for business users to securely access massive amounts of SAP data and integrate the data into Salesforce1 to run their business from their mobile phone.

Ash Kulkarni, senior vice president and general manager, Data Integration, Informatica, said, “Informatica Cloud Salesforce1 QuickStart Integration for SAP Solutions securely integrates SAP data and processes into the Salesforce1 Mobile App in real time, enabling companies to run their businesses from their phones with unprecedented agility and confidence.

According to the Gartner report, Enable Your Digital Business With a Mobile App Integration Architecture, published April 21, 2014, “Mobile enablement is a key element of digital businesses; however, access to back-end systems is often a limiting factor. IT leaders who choose the right mobile app integration architectures can ensure timely and efficient delivery of the apps their businesses require.”

The new Informatica Cloud solution delivers out-of-the-box SAP integration optimized for the new Salesforce1 Mobile App, with pre-built business mappings between SAP and Salesforce1 for processes such as Opportunity-to-Order and objects such as Accounts, Contacts, Products, Pricing and Orders.

“With solutions such as Informatica Cloud Salesforce1 QuickStart for SAP Solutions, customers can harness the power of Salesforce1 to run their businesses on their phones,” said Ron Huddleston, senior vice president, Global ISV & Channel Alliances, salesforce.com. “Informatica is unlocking mission-critical data from SAP with the new Salesforce1 Mobile App, allowing Salesforce users instant access to an SAP Back Office through Salesforce1 to sell, service, market and manage any business process from any mobile device.”

Informatica Cloud Salesforce1 QuickStart Integration for SAP Solutions enables business users and Salesforce administrators to be immediately productive with minimal or no corporate IT assistance using:

  • Point and click wizards to specify the up-to-date back-office data they need at the business level.
  • Real-time process integration templates for typical processes spanning SAP and Salesforce1, e.g.: opportunity-to-order.
