Challenges

  • Provide staff with single, comprehensive, shared view of all business information
  • Synchronize and replicate data between cloud and on-premise applications and databases
  • Ensure data in cloud CRM system is accurate, complete, and up to date
  • Reduce cost, time, and resources associated with cloud and on-premise data integration
  • Free up valuable IT resources by having the business facilitate the cloud data integration itself
If it wasn’t for Informatica Cloud Services, A.W. Hastings would not have been able to achieve the necessary integration with salesforce.com. Informatica delivered the self-service data integration our organization needs to improve decision making and build prosperous customer relationships. Just as important, Informatica gave us the ability to envision any data solution – and that is a powerful tool for our business.
