    Below are some of the new Winter 2013 features:

    New User Interface

    • Navigate efficiently through the new menu
    • Re-start failed jobs right from Activity Logs
    • Create re-usable views on Activity Logs to quickly filter down by task type, job status or any other custom criteria
    • Leverage the search options on Activity Logs to find the job you are looking for
    • Use ‘Save and Continue’ to save task definitions that you are working on without having to exit the interface
    • Use ‘Save and Run’ to launch task run with a single click
    • Conveniently access help, reach out to Informatica’s Global Customer Support or to Informatica Cloud User community from the right hand menu


    Enhanced Lookups

    • Use return values of lookups in expressions


    Parameter File Support for Data Synchronization
