Overall Satisfaction with Informatica Cloud

We use Informatica Cloud to help leverage data and reporting in our instance of Salesforce. It is used daily to import new contacts and leads to our instance of Salesforce to allow for better tracking and elimination of duplicates and other data integrity issues. We originally used native Salesforce support for importing but found that Informatica Cloud provided so much more depth and insights.
  • Data importing
  • Duplicate checking
  • Duplicate elimination
  • Data tracking
  • Data import automation
  • The UI can be somewhat difficult to get used to. This recently changed and was made somewhat better, but it is still somewhat difficult for new users to work.
  • Some of the duplicate management is hidden or hard to find initially.
  • The single Sign-on integration at first can be tricky to navigate if you aren't a Salesforce Admin.
  • Cut costs on the number of staff we need for data import.
  • Cut costs for automation that can be done for data that no longer has to be manually imported.
  • We've saved countless dollars by eliminating duplicates in our system with this tool.
We were originally given Informatica Cloud as a bundled piece of software with the Salesforce implementation company we signed up for so we didn't do a lot of detailed searching for competitors. Since then we have seen it go against Mulesoft Anypoint and Zapier. Both were good, but Informatica Cloud just worked so much better for everything we are using and was cheaper.
If you are wanting to run any kind of data importing automation, Informatica Cloud is essential for your day to day business operations. We don't know of another tool that does all that Informatica Cloud can do. Manual imports with Informatica are also great because there is so much more you can do with it than native Salesforce import tools leverage. It is a great tool. It might be seen as overly complicated if you are just doing it for small, one-off manual imports, but if they are going to be at any kind of regularity, it is a great tool.
