Community Technology Alliance was founded in 1991 to design and construct the technical infrastructure necessary to support the work to end homelessness in Santa Clara County.
CTA has since evolved into a nonprofit focusing on ways for databases and other tools to communicate and exchange data, and on ways to integrate and centrally store data for reporting and data visualization purposes.
“We use Informatica tools to be able to take all of these disparate data sets and load it into our data warehouse, or our data lake, because not every system is going to have the tools, or the APIs, or even an export that's going to make that easy. And Informatica helps us make that happen.”
– Javier Celedon, Operations Director, Community Technology Alliance

Within a year of Amazon's move to AWS, engineers were deploying code every 11.7 seconds, on average. The agile approach also reduced both the number and duration of outages, resulting in increased revenue. Many organizations have moved from clunky, legacy software and systems to an agile-based DevOps approach that has yielded significant increase in development productivity.
Agile, DevOps, and CI/CD are three distinct and critical tools for today’s development organization. When all three are used for their intended purposes, the results are transformational. But what do these tools mean in the context of application and data integration.
Join this webinar to learn about leveraging Informatica’s cloud data integration and application integration services to support your CI/CD pipeline. You will learn how to:
Enable version control of application and data integration assets with any third-party version control system
Perform continuous integration and continuous delivery for application and data integrations
Promote DevOps for application and data integration

Making it easier to implement and debug
Creating process objects had been tedious. We’ve made it easy to create multiple and hierarchical process objects simply by importing WSDL, XSD, or Swagger interface documents from a file, a zip or a URL. This will save you time and effort that previously required manual creation of process objects. Learn More...
To help you debug processes the Assignment step now gives you access to field values controlled by a process’s tracing level. To turn up tracing without redeploying a process a new X-Debug HTTP header has been introduced. A value of “true” for this header enables you to debug a single process instance on the fly.
Tools like Postman, SOAPUI or RESTclient are great but require you to leave Process Designer to initiate a process. You can now create and associate with a process one or more JSON or XML process inputs and run a process with one or all inputs. You can then use the new process instance debugging capabilities to better analyze and identify the root cause of errors. Learn More...
Making it easier to consume databases
We’ve turned your OData-enabled database into a fully-fledged REST API by not only exposing the power of OData v4 to perform paged queries, create, read, update and delete operations simply by enabling the OData service on the connection, but also by auto-generating a Swagger interface to this database's schemas. This makes it possible for developers to use the same approach to interact with databases as they do for any other REST API. Learn More...
You can also control where your OData-enabled APIs are accessible from now either from the Cloud, on premises or both. Learn More...
We’ve also enhanced our JDBC connector’s query capabilities by allowing you to leverage database specific WHERE Clause syntax. This will allow you to leverage your database’s nested query and other database-specific query capabilities. You are no longer limited to the use of simple AND or OR WHERE Clauses.
Making it easier to consume JSON and XML content-types
Prior to this release unless the content type of responses was application/json or text/xml but considered to be XML or JSON, the payload was treated as an attachment. We’ve enhanced content type processing such that for example application/vnd.api#json;charset=UTF-8 is now processed as JSON content. We now process content types containing xml and json identifiers as XML and JSON respectively. This update is backwards compatible but we recommend you review the release notes for guidance.
Making it easier to work with attachments and multipart responses. We’ve added multi-attachment support for service connectors. This includes multipart responses containing both the body and attachments. Several new functions have been introduced to make this possible.
Making process recovery easier with Process Restart provides administrators and operators the ability to restart a process from the Application Integration Console. Learn More...
Unique API name override for processes and taskflow now allows users to override the auto-generated API name with an API endpoint name of your choosing.
