Connects Providers And Consumers Of SaaS and On-Premise Applications Via Pure SaaS Integration Platform
Wellesley, MA - October 13, 2009 - THINKstrategies, Inc., the leading strategic consulting company focused on the business implications of the on-demand services market, announced today that Boomi has been named the latest winner of the Best of SaaS Showplace (BoSS) Awards program, which is aimed at promoting the measurable business benefits being delivered by today's Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions.
The BoSS Awards program was announced in January 2009 as the latest initiative by THINKstrategies to bring attention to SaaS and cloud computing companies which are producing tangible business benefits for specific user organizations. These benefits include increased sales, lower costs, higher customer satisfaction, faster operations, and greater profitability.
Boomi provides on-demand integration technology which connects providers and consumers of SaaS and on-premise applications via a pure SaaS integration platform-as-a-service (PaaS) without software or appliances.
Global Forex, a financial services company, has leveraged Boomi AtomSphere to connect its customer data in a web database, an on-premise database and Salesforce CRM. The process for integrating this data previously involved thousands of transactions managed by Excel spreadsheets and transferred manually between systems. Global Forex chose Boomi AtomSphere to integrate its XML files to Salesforce.com because of its ease of use and the expandability of the AtomSphere platform. Boomi's web access gives Global Forex a 360 degree view of all integration processes from any location. This also permits Global Forex to pinpoint and quickly resolve errors within 2 - 4 hours which previously took an average of 2 weeks and approximately $5000/error in technical resources to fix. Boomi's real-time analytic reports can be generated in 5 minutes compared to a full business day previously. In addition, Global Forex has reported a 95% reduction in integration maintenance costs.
"We appreciate the work that THINKstrategies does to promote the awareness of SaaS not just for technology's sake but for the real business benefits it can deliver," said Bob Moul, Boomi CEO. "We are pleased to receive the BoSS Award in recognition of the business value our solutions deliver to our entire community of customers and partners."
"Today's tough economy and changing corporate attitudes are driving greater adoption of SaaS solutions," stated Jeffrey M. Kaplan, the founder of the SaaS Showplace and Managing Director of THINKstrategies, the strategic consulting firm which conceived and administers the Showplace."Boomi's AtomSphere integration platform enables enterprises to ensure they can properly connect their SaaS solutions with their legacy applications and databases."
