Informatica Cloud Integration Templates allow customers and partners to build, and share full-scale "integration apps" on demand. Cloud Integration Templates also save time by using pre-defined mappings for specific processes, which reduces the number of steps required to execute sophisticated integration workflows. You can even tweak these processes according to your specific needs and dramatically reduce your deployment time and costs. Here are some of the many benefits you can obtain by developing and using Informatica Cloud Integration Templates:
Informatica Cloud customers can simply search within the service or from the Informatica Cloud Marketplace Template Mall for existing out-of-the-box cloud integration templates that meet their needs. Templates can accelerate your speed to deployment for a variety of use cases, such as:
Integration Process Efficiency
After locating the desired template, users can execute custom integration tasks within a few clicks. These dynamic Cloud Integration Templates allow you to execute complex integration tasks, yet have the same easy-to-use look and feel as the data loading, data synchronization, and data replication services within Informatica Cloud.
Cloud application administrators, business analysts and other non-integration experts can easily execute custom cloud data integration tasks without going through the complexity of having to know what each type of data transformation accomplishes. The Cloud Integration Template architecture provides parameters which allow business users to simply change the respective data types within an integration workflow and perform these actions within the Informatica Cloud environment itself. As a result, there is a vast improvement in productivity by eliminating the need to manually build and change custom mappings. By using Cloud Integration Templates to easily adjust to customization in data sources and business rules, integration complexity is completely abstracted away.
The new Cloud Integration Template Designer provides a graphical, drag-and-drop development environment to speed the creation of templates and custom integration task wizards. The Designer can be used to develop templates from the ground up, and insert numerous "configuration points" within so that end users can modify the template to suit their integration process. There are several user-interface elements within the Designer that help developers with complex use cases such as analytics, data aggregation and merging, lead de-duplication, opportunity conversion, account extraction, and more.
Informatica Cloud ISV partners can ensure greater adoption and stickiness by embedding Cloud Integration Templates directly within their cloud applications. Using a RESTful API, data can be integrated between your application and other data sources without ever having to leave the application. The REST API enables you to set up a custom user interface as well as define which application objects are available for integration. Behind the scenes, Cloud Integration Templates running within Informatica Cloud orchestrate the relevant integration workflows in the exact sequence desired.
