Fresno Pacific University


Nonprofit and independent, Fresno Pacific University offers more than 100 areas of study to about 4,200 traditional undergraduate, adult degree completion, graduate and seminary students at the main campus in Southeast Fresno and throughout the Valley at regional campuses in North Fresno, Visalia, Bakersfield and Merced as well as online.

Fresno Pacific University embarked on a strategic initiative to expand the data associated with their master student record. The university implemented Informatica Cloud Data Integration to bring trusted data into Salesforce. This resulted in a condensed integration time from weeks to a matter of days while reducing the use of shadow databases.

“Informatica Cloud Data Integration is the main reason that we achieved success
with our Salesforce implementation.”

— Jeff Jones, Manager of Information Systems, Fresno Pacific University.
