  • Here’s how it works. You go to informaticacloud.com and sign up for an account. You’ll be promoted to download the Secure Agent, which will sit behind your firewall.
  • Once the Agent is in place you create, configure, manage, and administer integration tasks from any web browser. A secure connection is established directly between the source and the target and the processing occurs in your environment. Take a minute to highlight the lines and emphasize that data is not staged.

  • 16. Our Challenge
    • Why Salesforce?
      • Global team of Sales and Consulting personnel required a readily accessible system on multiple devices
        • Customizable Forecasting
        • Pipeline Management (Security)
        • Ease of Use
    • Timeframe?
      • Initial implementation was three (3) months for Enterprise Field Sales and supporting personnel (110 users); onboarding Global Consulting team was a subsequent three (3) month effort
    • Why integration was so important?
      • As we were only moving one group and supporting personnel for the initial implementation, integration & synchronization with legacy on-premises CRM was critical path
  • 17. Why Informatica Cloud?
    • Time was of the essence
    • Sales cycle was accomplished with zero demos as we were already using Informatica Cloud prior to the Sales process being initiated
    • Requirements for synchronization and replication of data
    • Cloud-based ETL required no infrastructure costs/changes, and aligned with our IT direction of on-premise downsizing

    • Data Hub syncs and transforms data from legacy on-premise CRM and Oracle 11.5.10 EBS environments, as well as additional enterprise dbs
    • Two primary active task flows for synchronization
  • 19. Results
    • 52 Cloud Data Sync Tasks and Single Daily PROD Cloud Data Replication
    • Account & Contact sync with on-prem CRM every 10 min
    • Actuals from Oracle upserted via Data Hub every 30 min for Pipeline + Actuals revenue forecasting
    • Closed Won Opportunities in Salesforce.com sent every 10 min to legacy CRM to kickoff Order Management Process
    • Employee and Time Off data sync for internal applications moved to Force.com platform from on premise legacy environments
  • 20. Results - ROI
    • Initial implementation cycle: two weeks, began pre-Sale completion
    • Used one (1) day of consulting time to get us started
    • Zero hardware costs, zero training costs
    • Extensible with Plug-In architecture, integration with PowerCenter, and PowerExchange for future growth
  • 21. Next Steps
