What is the new support interface?
Over the last several months we have been working on improving the user interface and increasing the learning options for our customers. We understand the use of our cloud products are in mission critical projects and access to right content and support help should be made easy.
We have designed a new and more robust way to access all aspects of support, as well as case creation, from Informatica Cloud using the new Informatica Network customer experience platform. With a click of a button from Informatica Cloud product you can now access our robust Knowledge base, discussions, chat with an expert, and online case interface. The link you used to use to submit a case will now take you directly to the Cloud Support page in the Informatica Network.
Watch a quick 2 minute introduction video here.
