Salesforce integration with mainframes

Hello folks,
Is there a defined approach or a way to integrate salesforce with mainframes systems ?? Any hints or directions will be helpful.


Drew1815Drew1815 API a web-service api. Therefore, to get data in or out of, it must be through web services.
So to integrate to a mainframe, you will need to have a web service client interact with and secondly, a connection to your mainframe. api won't be able to connect to your mainframe directly. So you need some kind of middleware solution to broker the two systems or endpoints (sfdc and mainframe).

There are many Appexchange partners that have middleware integration solutions. Check out:

Hi Drew1815,
Thanks for your inputs. I too thought an integration broker is necessary .. I will check out the link you provided. Thanks again !
Hi Arun,
One place to look is at Boomi. They can be found at I work for a consulting company that specializes in integration work with Salesforce to a multitude of other systems but many times we use Boomi in conjunction with custom configuration so they may be a good place to start.

If you need assistance or a contact there, let me know.

You can use also TOS (Talend Open Studio for Data Integration) a complete IDE with autogenerated Java code and a visual design flow to determine jobs.

Hope it helps,
