Professional Edition, Informatica and API

We have Professional Edition and had a demo today with a third party, Informatica.  When we brought it up that we did not have access to an API, Informatica said we had to upgrade or purchase it in order to use their product.  If we had access to the API we wouldn't need a third party to extract data from Salesforce.  We are currently using the free version which works fine without the Salesforce API but the job limit is 24/day.  How is it that we can use the free version but can't use the paid for version? The guy doing the demo didn't sound too knowledgable of Salesforce, so I'm hoping he's misinformed. Any insight here?

Thank you!
