- Was using Salesforce.com DB Replicator tool for mission critical reporting warehouse. DB Rep does not support current API and was discontinued in Jan 2006. DBRep also will not handle tables with millions of rows, since it is subject to timeouts with large datasets on the initial load.
- Internal development and integration teams needed multiple sand box environments with monthly refresh.
- Consistent and current view of Salesforce data for reporting
- Integration developers have their own Salesforce.com site
- Stable, supported, scalable solution
