Informatica Upgrades Its iPaaS

System integrators and ISVs should be able to build, customize and deliver native connectivity to any cloud

Informatica, which already counts its Cloud processing upwards of a billion cloud integration transactions a day, has upgraded the stuff. It reckons its new Cloud Spring 2012 release will deliver the industry's most comprehensive cloud integration platform-as-a-service (iPaaS).

The biggest addition is a new Cloud Developer Edition that consists of a cloud connector toolkit and dynamic cloud integration templates for rapid connectivity to applications. Developers can embed end-user customizable integration logic and connectivity into cloud applications and platforms.

System integrators and ISVs should be able to build, customize and deliver native connectivity to any cloud or on-premise business and social applications that have published Web Services APIs.

Developers can access a Java-based API to create high-performance connectors that run as sources or targets in the Informatica Cloud. They can also sell their connectors on the Informatica Marketplace. The company says connectors now available there include LinkedIn, Microsoft Dynamics GP, Salesforce Chatter, Twitter, Yammer and Zuora.

The Developer Edition introduces cloud integration templates so application developers and ISVs can design and run custom data workflows between applications.

Application developers can leverage these templates to embed advanced Informatica Cloud data integration functionality into their own cloud solutions so they can pre-define customizable integration templates for specific industries and processes and use a RESTful API to dynamically configure process-centric templates.

There are also tools for creating new cloud integration templates and publishing them on the Informatica Marketplace.

The Spring release is supposed to have hybrid enterprise-class features like easy migration of cloud integration objects between development and production instances or between Informatica Cloud instances to support object reuse, sandbox development and rapid implementation.

There's SUSE Linux support for the Informatica Cloud Secure Agent and support for version 24 of the Salesforce Web Services API.

Gartner expects iPaaS adoption to grow "significantly" during the next five years. The researcher says it can provide a "foundation for hybrid cloud computing, engaging old and new applications and data, on-premises and in the cloud."

The Developer Edition is currently available through an early access program. When last we heard this stuff wasn't priced yet according to VP of cloud marketing Darren Cunningham.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
