  • Implementation of any integrations with Informatica Cloud Data can be done easily. A consultant with base knowledge about integrations can easily implement.
  • It has inbuilt aggregate functions which can be used during mapping source table fields with target table fields.
  • Source and Target database connections can be easily configured with minimum no of steps.
  • Source data can be easily filtered through by applying conditions.
  • It doesn't quite support complex implementations.
  • It doesn't support complex SQL Queries.
  • Working towards attaching a document to a mail, needs a work around. A shell script has to be written and to be executed.
  • Configuring integration for Re-processing of failed records needs proper design of the system.
Informatica Cloud Data Integration is well suited for integration projects which involve non-complex architecture. For non-complex system integrations, Informatica Cloud Data Integrations is one of the most cost effective tools. Informatica Cloud along with MDM is widely used for integrating with Salesforce CRM. MDM helps in removing the duplicate customer information, and site/address details. For complex system architectures one would need to use Oracle Data Integrator or Informatica Power Center.
