Informatica Reimagines Cloud Application Integration and Intelligent APIs for iPaaS

New Capabilities for Informatica Intelligent Cloud Services Simplify Multi-Cloud and Hybrid Integration with API and Application Integration Based on AI-driven Platform

Redwood City, Calif.,, March 07, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

  • Expanding the reimagined iPaaS platform that powers more than two trillion cloud transactions monthly
  • Redefining API and application integration with a unified and modern user experience, powered by an advanced microservices architecture and metadata-driven artificial intelligence - the CLAIRETM engine
  • Providing out-of-the-box integration to over 150 cloud and on-premises applications and databases for rapid deployment and efficiency

Redwood City, Calif., March 7, 2018 – Informatica®, the enterprise cloud data management leader, today announced the launch of reimagined API and Application Integration services on its industry leading Informatica Intelligent Cloud Services (IICS) iPaaS solution, bringing next-generation hybrid and multi-cloud integration to its customers.

IICS delivers reimagined API and Application Integration services to:

  • Implement processes, services and data integrations using APIs, data sets and event processing without writing a single line of code
  • Orchestrate applications, services and data sources to expose REST, OData and SOAP APIs
  • Integrate and automate processes that span cloud and on-premise systems and applications
  • Build and deploy with ease, using fine-grained debugging capabilities and a deployment model that supports DevOps practices in the cloud and on-premise
  • Expose APIs in confidence with the ability to manage the API lifecycle – enabling the  access and obtainment of real-time analytics of API usage

IICS offers a single, trusted solution to support any integration pattern, data set, APIs, user and endpoints to automate business processes, integrate with partners and lines of businesses, expedite transactions and enable real-time analytics.

IICS is based on a microservices architecture for agile support of customers’ future business requirements and leverages the CLAIRE™ engine to provide AI metadata-driven recommendations to automate and accelerate data and application integration. IICS provides a consistent look and feel across all experiences tailored to user roles such as developers, citizen integrators and operators/administrators through a common user interface shell.

In addition, IICS provides a broad range of connectivity with over 150 connectors for simplified, plug-and-play connectivity across multi-cloud and hybrid applications, without writing a single line of code. In addition, users can leverage the Service Connector feature within the platform to configure connectivity and join others that have integrated with thousands of endpoints.

A comprehensive integration platform must integrate API and messaging-based systems, and deliver the ability to implement business processes that span cloud, on-premises systems and applications, and an integration framework that handles any latency or speed of data, wherever it exists.

According to a July 2017, Gartner report, How Pervasive Integration Enables Your API Initiatives (and Vice Versa), “Contrary to the popular myth, even if everything has an API, you still need integration. APIs facilitate integration, and integration platforms are key for fast API delivery. To enable digital transformation, application leaders should encompass API support in their pervasive integration strategy.”1
