Informatica Japan K.K. (head office: Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo; President: Hiroki Yoshida), the Japan business of Informatica, an independent leading provider of data integration solutions, today announced that it starts offering in Japan the cloud data integration solution Informatica Cloud. Informatica provides innovative option to companies taking hybrid IT model or cloud IT model, and helps to maximize their cloud computing ROI.
Today, all enterprises use some form of cloud computing. Many of them employ hybrid IT models, running applications both in the cloud and on premise environments. As a result, cloud-based applications and platforms are often distributed across different departments (or lines of business) across the enterprise, co-existing with on-premises systems run by central IT, with business data fragmented and scattered inside and outside the firewall. Informatica Cloud helps enterprises overcome the increasing data fragmentation by integrating data across SaaS applications in cloud-based and in-house systems, keeping data accurate, complete, and up to date, and enabling users to access required data anytime and anywhere. Informatica Cloud allows native connection with Salesforce’s leading cloud platform and No. 1 CRM solution, as well as native connectivity for leading Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) providers, such as Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure.
Informatica Cloud allows companies to:
Integrate data between SaaS applications and cloud platforms such as Salesforce, NetSuite, AWS and Workday with on-premises applications databases and files such as SAP, Oracle and Microsoft
Synchronize customer/product masters between front-office (e.g. CRM) and back-office systems (e.g. ERP), to ensure business data is current and trustworthy for strategic business processes such as order-to-cash
Enable the central IT organization to remain in control while delivering self-service cloud integration to line-of-business users such as SaaS admins, business analysts and line-of-business IT
Informatica Cloud Data Wizard for Salesforce, a native data loader for bringing external data into Salesforce, is now generally available in a Japanese language version. Informatica’s Data Wizard for Salesforce provides self-service for a broad range of users, such as Salesforce admins and business analysts, enables integrating data without technical knowledge, and accelerates Salesforce implementations/use with pre-built integration templates.
