In addition to above answer , some more scenarios as well support..

loading data directly from DB Tables and TGT desgined without key or constraint..perform bulk load u will get result faster.

as well as both src and tgt flat file load on local server example trying to load both on local server directory instead off ftp will also bring result faster.

@kiran: It all depends on the scenario....If you have a well tuned DB and a partitioned table structure, then you can load from one table to other table wayyyyy quicker than a flat file sitting on the network. You can use push-down optimization in that scenario which helps to quicken the load. On the contrary, if the flat file is sitting on the Informatica box then it would load faster than the table. You can use BULK loading and finish the task quicker. So in the end you have to see the scenario and go for a trial and error method. Hope it helps.

@shiva: It is simple....You will have the source and target defined as a Flat file !!!
