Cloud Integration Innovations: Driving Productivity in Real Time
Informatica Cloud Winter 2014 introduces new advances in real-time data and applications integration, while also placing more productivity-driving power in the hands of line-of-business users. These advances include:
According to an Aug. 30, 2013 Gartner report, Who’s Who in Integration Platform as a Service, “What makes iPaaS [Integration Platform as a Service] so attractive for technology providers is not the current size of the market, but expectation of its growth. We expect iPaaS adoption to grow significantly during the next five years, as virtually all user organizations must integrate applications, and at least some of these applications are in the cloud. In fact, we expect that by 2017, two-thirds of all new integration flows will extend beyond the firewall.”1
New Cloud Automation Enhancements: Increasing Mobility and User Productivity
Natively integrated with Salesforce, Informatica Cloud Extend enables business users to create and deploy custom guides that automate Salesforce CRM processes and ensure that best practices are followed. Informatica Cloud Winter 2014 introduces new productivity features to Cloud Extend, including:
Cloud TDM Enhancements: Safeguarding Sensitive Data in Cloud Application Sandboxes
Earlier this year, Informatica introduced a unique Informatica Cloud Data Masking service that reduces the risk of data breaches during application development and testing. Informatica Cloud Winter 2014 delivers enhancements in this increasingly important arena to help make development on the Force.com platform even more productive, including:
Cloud Data Quality Services: Control the Accuracy, Consistency and Completeness of Data
Informatica Cloud Data Quality Services enable organizations to take control of the accuracy, consistency and completeness of their data-driven operations with a low-cost, per-transaction subscription. These SOAP-based web services are easily consumed by any analytical or operational applications, or used as discreet data quality rules within any business process. Also pre-defined data quality rules standardize, cleanse, validate and enrich data for all industries. In addition, specific data quality rules for the healthcare and financial services verticals are also included in this release.
