Integration platform

Last updated on April 8, 2024

The Integration Platform enables data integration between systems and applications both on-premise and in the cloud.

Here are some examples of where the Integration Platform can be used:

  • Syncing data from a database to a third-party cloud service on a nightly basis.
  • Processing changes from an API (e.g. CAOS) in real-time to update an on-premises system.
  • Extracting data from a third-party cloud service to populate a reporting database.

Our Integration Platform is powered by a vendor product called Informatica Intelligent Cloud Services (IICS). IICS belongs to a class of products called “Integration Platform as a Service” (iPaaS). The platform caters to a diverse technical audience including those who may have very little integration experience and to those who have advanced development and integration skills.


  • Create integrations that move data on a scheduled basis, or in real time.
  • Pre-built connectors enable reusable integrations to a variety of other services (e.g. Salesforce, Oracle, AWS S3).
  • Allows integration of on-premises systems, databases, and cloud-based software as a service (SaaS).
  • Design and implement integrations in a web browser using no-code and low-code tools.
  • Run integrations in the cloud or deploy them to your own infrastructure.


  • Must have a UW–‍Madison NetID.
  • Must be faculty, staff, or student employee.
