If you’re an SAP business looking for a way to integrate your data into Salesforce1 then the new Informatica Cloud Salesforce1 QuickStart Integration for SAP Solutions, is just for you. This enterprise-class business integration solution is optimised for SAP and the new Salesforce1 Mobile App and Informatica claims it makes it easy to securely access massive amounts of SAP data from Salesforce either on the desktop or via your mobile phone. Although with nine words and around 24 syllables in the product name Informatica are not making typing the product into a mobile easy, and asking anyone for support is a frightening prospect.
According to the Gartner report, Enable Your Digital Business With a Mobile App Integration Architecture, published April 21, 2014, “Mobile enablement is a key element of digital businesses; however, access to back-end systems is often a limiting factor. IT leaders who choose the right mobile app integration architectures can ensure timely and efficient delivery of the apps their businesses require.”
The solution comes with pre-built business mappings between SAP and Salesforce1 for processes such as Opportunity-to-Order and objects such as Accounts, Contacts, Products, Pricing and Orders and enables business users and Salesforce administrators to be productive with minimal or no corporate IT assistance using:
- Point and click wizards to specify the up-to-date back-office data they need at the business level.
- Real-time process integration templates for typical processes spanning SAP and Salesforce1, e.g.: opportunity-to-order.
- Data integration templates with pre-built mappings between SAP and Salesforce1 objects such as Accounts, Contacts, Products, Pricing and Orders.
- Native Force.com workflow guides to quickly build business workflows incorporating mission-critical back-office data inside the Salesforce1 app, on any device, in real-time.
Informatica Cloud Salesforce1 QuickStart Integration for SAP Solutions is powered by the Informatica Vibe virtual data machine and utilises the “Map Once. Deploy Anywhere.” data integration functionality, allowing data integration mappings created using the tool to be run without recoding on any other Informatica Cloud and Informatica PowerCenter implementation.
