Stocks in this article: INFA

REDWOOD CITY, Calif., May 30, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- News Facts:

  • Canon Australia, a world-leading imaging brand, is using a hybrid IT integration solution from Informatica for a comprehensive view of information around its business deals.
  • Informatica Corporation (Nasdaq:INFA), the world's number one independent provider of data integration software, today announced that Canon Australia is using Informatica Cloud and Informatica PowerCenter as part of a hybrid IT solution to power a unified order management system, which has helped increase sales effectiveness and manage sales success with reduced resources.  
  • Canon was previously plagued by fragmented data and inefficient manual workarounds. The company now uses Informatica Cloud to bi-directionally integrate sales data across Salesforce CRM and Oracle E-Business Suite, automatically consolidating customer, pricing, product, order, stock and all other data associated with each business deal.
  • Armed with timely, relevant and holistic data, Canon's sales, operations and finance teams can now:
  • Efficiently manage sales deals and negotiations and track sales orders in Salesforce CRM.
  • Respond more quickly and competitively to sales opportunities and customer needs.
  • Leverage comprehensive and accurate reporting/analytics to drive sales performance and business planning.
  • Ensure that no data that can help close a sale is lost or overlooked.
  •  Informatica has also reduced data-related costs at Canon by:
  • Reducing back office resources and manual data loading between Salesforce CRM and Oracle E-Business Suite.
  • Effecting rapid automatic data transformations that increase data quality and accuracy and reduce rework.
  • Delivering pre-packaged native cloud integration between Salesforce CRM and Oracle, coupled with codeless development for faster time-to-value and time-to-change.
  • Central to Canon's selection of Informatica over other cloud integration platforms was Informatica's ability to offer a unified cloud data management and hybrid IT solution comprising Informatica Cloud and Informatica PowerCenter to integrate Canon's cloud-based Salesforce CRM and on-premise Oracle ERP implementations.
  • Looking ahead, Canon's hybrid IT deployment of Informatica solutions opens the door to leverage complementary Informatica integration capabilities, such as master data management, data quality and data archiving, on a single platform to meet future data management needs in the cloud and on-premise.

Canon Australia is a finalist in the Informatica Innovation Awards in the Megatrend category of Hybrid IT. Winners will be announced at Informatica World June 4 - 7 in Las Vegas.
