Informatica Calls For An Endless Summer Of Enterprise Cloud


Informatica's release this week of its new Cloud Summer 2011 cloud integration service is an attempt to serve enterprise-level cloud computing needs, which the company says have been poorly addressed until now.

Citing enterprise capabilities such as performance, scalability, availability, manageability, and support, Informatica is making a play for enterprise-class functionality through universal cloud integration service that also offers unified hybrid deployment for both on-premise and cloud environments.

The company says that the Informatica Cloud Summer 2011 focuses on simplicity of learning, deploying, administering, managing, and configuring cloud integration. The new release introduces:

  • Customizable Views enable users to define custom queries based on personal preferences and manage multiple cloud data integration tasks.
  • Flexible Job Scheduling enables users to define blackout periods, such as non-business hours, to optimize performance and job processing.
  • REST API enables developers and IT to launch predefined data integration tasks from an external source for event-based cloud integration.

"With the maturing of cloud application adoption, enterprises are increasingly moving towards hybrid IT infrastructures combining on-premise and cloud applications," according to Robert Mahowald, Research Vice President of SaaS and Cloud Services, IDC. "As this trend continues, IT organizations are looking for ways to improve cloud governance and control while ensuring business continuity and continued innovation. An important part of this is finding vendors and solutions they can trust."
