A connection enables you to access data from cloud and on-premise applications, platforms, databases, and flat files. Use connections to specify the location of sources, lookups, and targets included in a task.
You can create a connection for connectors that are installed in Informatica Informatica Cloud. Many connectors are pre-installed, however you might want to use a connector that is not pre-installed. Add-on connectors created by Informatica and Informatica partners are available for installation.
More information about connections can be found inInformatica's Online Help. Below are three demonstrations showing connection setup.
