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
