Informatica Announces Salesforce.com On Demand Solution

On-demand integration is apparently in demand, at least from Informatica’s perspective, especially vis-à-vis Salesforce.com

Hosted by Eric Kavanagh

On-demand computing is apparently in demand, at least in the eyes of data integration specialist Informatica Corp. The Switzerland of data integration, as some have called it, just announced availability of its first on-demand offering, which is specifically designed to handle data from Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) stalwart, Salesforce.com.

In the official press release, Informatica touts its new offering as the Informatica On Demand Data Replicator, which it describes as "the industry’s first hosted, multi-tenant service for cross-enterprise data integration." The company says that the "proliferation of SaaS applications increases the data fragmentation problem for businesses. These applications create critical business data that resides outside the corporate firewall and, therefore, beyond the direct control of the business. Informatica On Demand Data Replicator allows companies to regain control of that business-critical data."

  • How Informatica mitigates risk in working with software partners
