Cloud data integration improves reporting, says Informatica
Provider of fiber-based communications services Level 3 Communications is using Informatica Cloud to improve the company’s business intelligence capabilities, said data integration software provider Informatica.
Level 3 Communications expects Informatica Cloud to provide the company a comprehensive view of both its on-premise and cloud-based data.
Informatica said that by integrating data from Level 3’s on-premise data warehouse with its salesforce.com CRM data, Informatica Cloud enhances the company’s ability to generate comprehensive, accurate and timely sales force management-related reports, which include critical data from salesforce.com.
The company claimed that Informatica Cloud also increases productivity for Level 3 by reducing the time to extract data from salesforce.com.
Level 3 is using Informatica Cloud’s data loading and data replication services as well as Informatica PowerExchange for Salesforce for data synchronisation.
Level 3 was able to provision, configure and deploy Informatica Cloud in less than one week, said Informatica.
Level 3 IT Technology Solutions Delivery senior vice-president Paul Farnsworth said Informatica Cloud provided a fast to deploy, low-maintenance approach for integrating cloud and on-premise data.
"The simplicity and ease of setup enables our IT team and business users to focus more on higher value data analysis and leave the implementation details to Informatica Cloud," Farnsworth said.
