Informatica Cloud Summer 2014 introduces advanced cloud application integration capabilities for real-time use cases, a complete API framework for iPaaS, convergence of data integration and application integration onto a unified iPaaS platform, and business integration accelerators delivered as Vibe Integration Packages (VIPs).
The Informatica Cloud Summer 2014 release introduces a 100% cloud designer for real time integration use cases. Using the drag and drop UI, real-time cloud application integration, process automation, and human-centric workflows can be created and deployed quickly and easily. Cloud Application Integration workflows are also automatically available as mobile process apps in the Salesforce1.
With Cloud Data Integration and Cloud Application Integration on one common iPaaS platform, new industry leading capabilities are now possible. Process integration workflows can be designed to trigger data integration tasks thereby combining bulk data transfers with real-time event-based integration. For example, real-time order fulfillment processes associated with complex product SKUs with several thousand variations of pricing can combine the best of real-time integration workflows, and batch-oriented price aggregations from data integration tasks.
Informatica Cloud's Vibe Integration Packages (VIPs) deliver pre-built business process mappings between front-office and back-office applications. With the Summer 2014 release, new VIPs for Siebel-to-Salesforce, and Salesforce-to-SAP have been released.
Informatica Cloud's iPaaS now enables end-to-end support for connectivity to a company's internal or external APIs. The framework provides robust capabilities for API definition, creation, and consumption. Developers and citizen integrators can now expose integrations as APIs and users can consume them without writing any additional code. API integration can also be used to create composite apps consisting of a mashup that integrates several different APIs.
