Cloud Data Integration

Fast business data integration

SaaS administrators can easily deliver new or changing business requirements through the Cloud Designer’s wizard-based UI. Business integration workflows can quickly be built from scratch or by modifying existing integrations.

Pre-built VIPs available from developers, partners, or the Informatica Marketplace let SaaS administrators speed delivery of critical processes such as opportunity-to-order, lead-to-cash, and order-to-fulfillment, to name a few.

Data transformation

You need to be able to integrate data quickly and easily to stay on top of your business. To provide rapid access to critical information for the users who need it most, Informatica Cloud Data Integration enables data transformation through a drag-and-drop web interface. Informatica Cloud Data Integration also includes direct connectivity to SaaS apps, on-premise applications, and databases, and support for multiple objects to manage contacts

Efficient data replication

Replicating relevant cloud application information and manipulating the data so that it’s in the right format greatly speeds up your core reporting, compliance, and business intelligence processes. Among other features—including the ability to rapidly archive all Salesforce data to comply with existing regulations and governance policies, and support for a variety of databases including SQL Server, MySQL, IBM DB2, and Oracle—Informatica Cloud Data Integration ensures that only the Salesforce data that has changed since the last replication job gets extracted.

High-performing and productive analytics

Informatica Cloud Data Integration can help you with your global, distributed data warehouse and analytics projects. If you are using a cloud data warehouse like AWS Redshift, Azure SQL Data Warehouse, or Snowflake, you can use Informatica Cloud Data Integration solutions to help augment the performance, productivity, and extensive connectivity to cloud and on-premise sources.

With flexible and scalable transformations and advanced capabilities, you can seamlessly integrate growing data volumes across disparate sources to your data warehouse with easy-to-use wizards, preconfigured templates, and out-of-the-box mappings.

Visual designer

The Informatica Cloud Designer provides a drag-and-drop, wizard-based design environment to enable developers and line-of-business SaaS administrators to easily build integration workflows that span across cloud and hybrid environments. Developers use the design canvas to drag and drop data sources, targets, and advanced transformations. The Informatica Cloud Designer also enables developers to specify a set of dynamic object-linking rules that can be applied to all or a subset of the fields that flow into every source, target, and transformation in an integration workflow.

Automatic API configuration

The Informatica Cloud Designer instantly parses through the business metadata of every cloud application’s API and presents configuration options in an intuitive user interface. As a result, all integration logic is future-proofed and developers don’t have to deal with the time-consuming task of interacting with the cloud application endpoints at the WSDL level.

Developers can also use the Cloud Designer to build reusable Vibe Integration Packages (VIPs) that include parameters within the integration workflow, which can be configured by line-of-business SaaS administrators at runtime.

Automated scheduling

To increase adoption of your SaaS application, it cannot live in a silo—it needs to interact with other line-of-business SaaS apps as well as legacy on-premise applications and databases. And to get access to key information, you need to run your business processes within your SaaS application as well. Informatica Cloud Data Integration enables automated scheduling of jobs as well as task-flow sequencing of multiple jobs to make it easy to integrate your SaaS application into your enterprise application ecosystem.

Connect machine data

Intelligent Structure Discovery makes it faster and easier to understand machine data, such as non-standard log files from machines, the web, JSON, computers, and networks and transform it for use with other enterprise data for analytics or operational use cases.

Intelligent Structure Discovery combines machine learning-assisted interpretation of data with visualization to help users easily understand and extract key data points from log files and parse them into a format that can be used for analytics and operational systems. It can be used seamlessly in Informatica Cloud mappings to automate ongoing parsing of large volumes of machine data.

Streamline integration with a hub

Cloud Integration Hub powers business by accelerating complex implementations and change management. It is a modern publish/subscribe hub that efficiently integrates cloud and on-premises systems by combining centralized integration with self-service for distributed teams.

Replace redundant data workflows by synchronizing data with each source system once, processing data centrally and distributing fresh data to all consuming systems when they need it. The hub boosts data agility and decreases integration costs.

Simplify B2B partner on-boarding

Cloud B2B Gateway automates secure data exchange across partner networks. The solution easily onboards, manages, and tracks partners and simplifies partner communication thanks to out-of-the-box EDI mappings. The gateway:

  • Lets customers extend the organizational integration to their B2B partner communities with an easy to use and implement B2B solution
  • Replaces legacy B2B solutions with a lower-cost gateway solution for simple B2B processes
  • Reduces IT and other associated operational costs
