  • 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

    • 1. Cloud Data Replication www.InformaticaCloud.com http://www.twitter.com/infacloud
    • 2. Thank You For Your Reviews!
    • 3. 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.”
    • 4. 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.”
    • 5. Salesforce Customers Have Spoken… “ Informatica was hands-down the best option for us.” “… our application required automatic detection and replication of schema changes.”
    • 6. Today’s Agenda
      • Review primary cloud data replication use cases
      • Informatica Cloud deep dive
      • Best practices
      • Discussion
    • 7. Primary Cloud Integration Use Cases: Load Data Synchronize Data Replicate Data Cleanse Data
    • 8. 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”
    • 9. Why Replicate Your Cloud Data? Back-Up / Archiving 2 Reporting / Analytics Automate Change Detection 2 1
    • 10. 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
    • 11. The Result…
      • Many ad-hoc exports via the data loader
    • 12. 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
    • 13. 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)
    • 14. 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
    • 15. 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?
    • 16. 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
    • 17. 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
    • 18. 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

    • 22. 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
