Getting Notes data into a data warehouse

I need to get Lotus Notes data into a data warehouse, which will be used by reporting applications, such as Business Objects. Our company has Informatica as the data integration tool. Can you explain how to do this using Informatica or something else.
What is the DW backend database? The easy answer might be to buy a copy of LEI, since it will connect with pretty much every rdbms out there. You may have slim options with Informatica. I checked their website and it does not look like they offer a native Notes or [even] an ODBC connector. I'd be rather surprised if they do not offer an ODBC interface, but that is no longer a "sexy" way to exchange data so marketing might have pulled it from the site. I'd check with your Informatica product/sales rep to see if they have an ODBC connector. If they do then you could use it in conjunction with the NotesSQL Driver, which makes a Notes database look like an ODBC interface. Worst case scenario would be to use their PowerConnect SDK.
