  • Rapid Salesforce expansion led to many additional fields Long timelines/constrained resources to expand IT replication Knowledge of SQL required to access replicated data No ability to automate extracts outside of IT department Multiple business-managed reporting databases and ad-hoc reports required data Led to many ad-hoc exports via data loader
  • Combination of BO and Cognos Moving more to Cognos

Informatica Cloud Data Replication as a Service Informatica Cloud Data Replication as a Service Presentation Transcript

  • Cloud Data Replication www.InformaticaCloud.com http://www.twitter.com/infacloud
  • Thank You For Your Reviews!
  • Salesforce Customers Have Spoken… “ All I can say is Wow!” “ We have a lot of reporting needs that Salesforce’s integrated reports/dashboards just won’t support.”
  • Salesforce Customers Have Spoken… “ Solution is for you if you want a simple, affordable, reliable and secure way to backup your Salesforce.com data.” “… setup and configuration was a snap.”
  • Salesforce Customers Have Spoken… “ Informatica was hands-down the best option for us.” “… our application required automatic detection and replication of schema changes.”
  • Today’s Agenda
    • Review primary cloud data replication use cases
    • Informatica Cloud deep dive
    • Best practices
    • Discussion
  • Primary Cloud Integration Use Cases: Load Data Synchronize Data Replicate Data Cleanse Data
  • Why Replicate Your Cloud Data? “ local control” “ data warehousing” “ store and maintain a local, separate copy” “ integration with other apps” “ data mining, custom reporting, analytics”
  • Why Replicate Your Cloud Data? Back-Up / Archiving 2 Reporting / Analytics Automate Change Detection 2 1
  • Bottleneck: Agility and Availability
    • The Challenge: How can we quickly make the right data available to the right people in an automated and accessible fashion?
    SQL Knowledge Required Multiple Business-Management Databases No Extract Automation Outside of IT Rapid Expansion = Many New Fields Constrained IT Resources
  • The Result…
    • Many ad-hoc exports via the data loader
  • The Solution: Informatica Cloud
    • Business-managed
    • Point-and-click replication and exports (vs. API-based replication)
    • Variety of endpoints – csv, FTP, SQL
    • Easy automation and setup (<10 minutes, vs. months…)
    www.InformaticaCloud.com
  • Results: Massive Improvements in Agility, Accessibility, and Time Savings
    • Daily replication into business-managed reporting databases
    • One-click initiation of multi-object extracts for list generation or import into other systems
    • Direct placement of CSV files on vendor FTP sites for list scrubbing
    • Fast setup for any business unit requiring data exports from either Salesforce instance (B2C or B2B)
  • Results: Massive Improvements in Agility, Accessibility, and Time Savings
    • Daily replication into business-managed reporting databases
    • One-click initiation of multi-object extracts for list generation or import into other systems
    • Direct placement of CSV files on vendor FTP sites for list scrubbing
    • Fast setup for any business unit requiring data exports from either Salesforce instance (B2C or B2B)
    No More Bottleneck, No More Manual Extract/Compilation
  • The Challenge We Faced: Reporting
    • Now that we have migrated to salesforce.com...
      • How do we report on the salesforce.com data?
      • How can we use the salesforce.com data in the Janus data warehouse?
      • How can other processes use the salesforce.com data?
  • Why Informatica Cloud?
    • Having the data back here at Janus vs. keeping in the cloud
      • Allows us to use our BI tools (Business Objects / Cognos)
    • Handles CRM changes effectively with no coding
      • Frequent changes to data types, new fields, removed fields
  • Results:
    • Very very little &quot;knob turning&quot; needed to keep process working
      • “ Set and forget” data replication
      • Can quickly add new objects or fields to the Janus copy in ~5 minutes
    • Can configure multiple schedules
    • Built out a Business Objects universe for different business groups
    www.InformaticaCloud.com
  • Results:
    • Informatica Cloud is now becoming more and more important to reporting across the enterprise
      • Especially as we are joining the salesforce.com data up with other data within the enterprise
    • The ability to quickly deploy/fix code using the SaaS model allows for lower downtime and quicker turn-around of user requests

  • Data Replication Success Stories Automated data replication every 5 minutes, 20 minutes, and daily archival / backup “ If you are building a new Force.com application with complex data replication requirements and you need to move data in a quick, efficient and manageable way, who do you turn to?” Implemented Informatica Data Replication service DRS to keep an up-to-the minute copy of Salesforce.com in a local database to preserve functionality of custom applications that were previously integrated with SalesLogix Within an hour they had “live” Salesforce data in a local SQL Server database and had developed the outer joins and reports they required. Fully automated ‘set and forget’ solution operates on predefined schedule and requires no ongoing staff/maintenance Implemented Informatica Cloud Services to replicate Salesforce for reporting Robust external customer reporting from Salesforce.com and back office systems 360-degree shared views of assets, brokerage data, and customer information Leveraged investment and skills in existing business intelligence (BI) tools by replicating Salesforce.com data locally Dealer Services
