We are pleased to announce the Summer 2018 (October 2018) release of Informatica Cloud Application Integration (CAI).
The release includes the following highlight:

Connectivity is often a measure to Business Success. With proliferation of applications across verticals and use-cases, connectivity has become even more prominent. More so, the data resides in the application which mandates that it is no longer available for local processing. You usually have a read-only view of data but still need to work with it.
We also understand that it is virtually impossible to build native connectors for each system as they run into thousands. However, we live in the age of “standards” where each of these systems offer API interface.
Cloud Application Integration provides a “visual” way to create connections to any of such systems via REST API. We call them Service Connectors (but they are more like creating connectors on-the-fly). This is in addition to supporting native connectors like File, AMQP, JDBC.
At Informatica, we are always ready to help our customers to be more efficient, productive and provide support in whatever way we can. With this motive at our fore, we have kick-started an initiative where we would share:
Please note that these service connectors are protected under MIT license so they are free to be shared, downloaded and used.
We are hosting these samples on a GIT repository with the intent to promote collaboration. While Informatica is dutibound to push more and more Service Connectors on this repository, we expect Cloud Application Integration community users to help us support in our initiative by pushing them on GIT directly.
You can do so following below steps:
If you see issues posting directly on GIT, you can also share the connector sample as an email to my email ID <email@example.com>. I would be more than happy to post it on your behalf
Also understand that any service connector uploaded to this Git repository can be used by anyone else since it will also be covered under MIT license.
Here is what you can start using right away.
