Informatica Cloud Selects OpSource to Scale Its SaaS Data Integration Platform
OpSource, Inc., Dimension Data’s wholly-owned enterprise cloud and managed hosting business, today announced that Informatica Cloud has chosen OpSource to host and deliver its multi-tenant cloud integration service to leading enterprises throughout the world. With the explosion of cloud computing and the adoption of on-demand applications such as Salesforce CRM, enterprises and Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) have turned to Informatica’s best-in-class SaaS data integration solution to move millions of records between systems and run thousands of data integration jobs a day. To keep pace with the growth, Informatica needed a reliable hosting solution that could seamlessly manage the workload while proactively identifying and resolving any issues before they impact customers. With more than 1,000 organizations relying on Informatica’s cloud data integration services, the company turned to OpSource’s Managed Hosting and enterprise-class cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) solutions.

“We needed a partner that understood cloud and the mission-critical nature of working with our ISV customers to ensure their applications and systems were up and running,” said Ron Papas, general manager, Informatica Cloud. “Using OpSource’s cloud hosting services, we can provide our customers a reliable and consistent experience in a cost effective manner.”

Informatica evaluated several vendors before selecting OpSource’s Managed Hosting and Application Operations solution. Because customer service is the cornerstone of Informatica’s business, they needed a solution that could help them guarantee uptime for their integration services. OpSource was the only company evaluated that could provide the reliability, operational expertise and 100 percent service level guarantees needed to ensure that Informatica’s services would be up and running smoothly. OpSource has provided the responsiveness and accountability needed to keep customers happy and address issues in real-time.

“Informatica has made it easier and more cost-effective for organizations to integrate fragmented data systems and cloud-based applications,” said Keao Caindec, CMO of OpSource. “At OpSource, we understand that SaaS applications need to be up 24x7, and our systems, processes and technology are engineered to deliver just that.”

Informatica plans to leverage OpSource moving forward as it expands its embedded integration service strategy: “When we selected OpSource, we knew we were investing in our future,” added Papas. “Integration is something all SaaS vendors will have to address, and we wanted a partner that would enable us to be at the forefront of cloud integration. With OpSource, we can put the right infrastructure in place for integrating with our partners so that signing up new clients is automated, fast and easy.”
