The recent launch of Informatica Cloud Summer 2013 introduced a variety of new capabilities to the product, including SAP connectivity, Cloud Process Automation improvements, and Cloud Data Masking. In addition to all of the great product features, the summer release has also brought some key enhancements to the Informatica Marketplace as well.
With the large and growing amount of Cloud content on the Marketplace, we have completely re-designed the Informatica Cloud Mall to better organize the variety of assets that can be found there. We have organized all of the Cloud content into several categories including Cloud Data Management Applications, Cloud Connectors, and Cloud Integration Templates. With the recent addition of Cloud Process Automation capabilities to the product, we have added an additional category to the Cloud Mall that contains a number of new Cloud Process Guides. The Marketplace currently has over a hundred Cloud Blocks, so there’s sure to be something there that can help you extend the power of the Informatica Cloud platform.
Immediately Provision Cloud Content in Your Org
Another new feature of the Marketplace is the “Get It Now” capability to directly download Blocks into your Cloud instance. Here’s how it works:
For Cloud connectors, you can start a 30 day trial by locating the relevant Block and clicking on the “Start Trial Now” button.
You’ll be asked to login to your Cloud Org so that we know where to provision the connector to. If you don’t yet have Informatica Cloud, you can start a Cloud Trial right from this screen as well.
You’ll be presented with confirmation that your connector has been provisioned within your org.
Log into your Cloud org and you’re ready to go!
It’s never been easier to extend the power of Informatica Cloud to integrate with your applications. There are currently more than 60 Cloud connectors on the Marketplace, allowing you to access a variety of on-premise and Cloud applications with the click of a button.
In addition to Connectors, the “Get It Now” capabilities are also available for Cloud templates.
Templates are a great way to jump start your productivity for common use cases, and there are currently more than 50 templates available – all free to use! In addition to the Cloud Templates that have been developed by Informatica, there is a wide variety of content that has been contributed by the Informatica Cloud Community. By looking for the Marketpalce Seal of Approval, you can rest assured that anything you use will be safe in your environment.
If you haven’t been to the Informatica Marketplace Cloud Mall, or haven’t visited in a while, be sure to check out the new content. If you’ve developed a Cloud Template or other solution that you’d like to share with the Informatica community, the Marketplace is a great place to make your solution available.
The Informatica Marketplace will be at Informatica World, so feel free to stop by our booth at the Technology & Solution Fair – I look forward to seeing you there!
