Informatica adds developer edition to cloud data-integration platform

The move is meant to draw ISVs and systems integrators to Informatica's service

Informatica has added a new developer edition to its cloud-based data-integration platform in a bid to further expand a partner ecosystem around the service, the company announced Monday.

Now available through an early-access program, Informatica Cloud Developer Edition provides systems integrators and software vendors with a Java-based programming interface for creating connectors to various cloud services.

The connectors can have "complete native connectivity" to data objects within an application and can also be easily packaged for sale through Informatica's marketplace, according to the company's website.

Also featured in the developer edition are Cloud Integration Templates, a library of pre-built workflows for common data-integration scenarios. The basic templates can be tweaked as desired, according to Informatica. A REST (representational state transfer) API can be used to embed the templates natively into a cloud application.

Developer Edition was announced in conjunction with the general availability of Informatica Cloud's Spring 2012 edition.

The release include easier ways to move cloud integration objects back and forth from development and product environments, as well as Informatica Cloud instances. The update also adds support for using version 24 of Salesforce.com's Web Services API (application programming interface), Informatica said.

Cloud data-integration technology is becoming more and more important as customers adopt on-demand services and wish to tie them back to on-premises systems, as well as to other cloud software.

Informatica Cloud competes with rivals such as IBM's Cast Iron offering and Dell's Boomi platform, as well as open-source offerings such as Talend.

Pricing starts at US$1,000 per month for Informatica Cloud Professional Edition, with Basic, Standard and Enterprise versions available at higher cost. The company also offers a number of Express editions with more limited feature sets.
