Innotas and Boomi Partner to Bring On-Demand Integration to the Project Portfolio Management Market
Boomi Provides Innotas' Customers With an Easy and Affordable Answer to SaaS Integration
BERWYN, PA--(Marketwire - July 8, 2008) - Boomi, the market and technology leader for
on-demand integration, has partnered with Innotas to enable
Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) integration for Innotas' on-demand project
portfolio management (PPM) solutions. The Boomi On Demand(SM) offering
provides Innotas' PPM users with the ability to integrate the Innotas
solution with any other SaaS or on-premise applications. Integrations are
built and deployed directly from the Web without the burden of installing
and maintaining software packages or hardware appliances. In addition,
Innotas is using Boomi On Demand to integrate its own PPM application with
Using Boomi On Demand, Innotas' customers can harness the power of the Web
to integrate the PPM solution with applications for human resources, help
desk, finance, time management and customer relationship management, to
name a few possible scenarios. Customers can securely build, deploy and
manage integrations directly from the Web using only a browser.
Integrations are built visually with familiar point-and-click,
drag-and-drop ease. No coding is required, and implementations are
accomplished with exceptional speed.
"One of the biggest challenges we've faced as a SaaS vendor is the
perception that integrating a SaaS offering with other applications is
complex and costly. Ironically, the companies most attracted to the
benefits of the SaaS model -- small and mid-size businesses -- were exactly
the companies most impacted by this problem," explained Chad Haftorson,
vice president of products at Innotas. "With the introduction of Boomi On
Demand, things just got a whole lot easier. The combination of the Innotas
Web Services API (application programming interface) and Boomi On Demand
allows companies to easily integrate services and applications in a
cost-effective, pay-only-for-what-you-use model. Thanks to Boomi,
integration is no longer a barrier to adoption."
By delivering integration on-demand, Boomi has redefined the economics of
purchasing integration capabilities. For the first time, companies can pay
by connection and not for an entire integration software suite or
appliance. Companies can employ the capabilities and functionality of a
sophisticated enterprise integration service at a fraction of the cost of
conventional integration offerings.
"For customers to truly exploit the power of the Innotas PPM solution, they
need it to be integrated into their enterprise. Through the partnership
announced today, this integration can be accomplished much easier and
affordably than in the past," explained Boomi CEO and president Bob Moul.
"In addition, fully functioning integration processes can be deployed in
days, and sometimes even hours. For example, in under a week, Boomi was
able to complete the integration linking Innotas' PPM application with
salesforce.com. Innotas can now provide its customers with the ability to
link applications and make sure accurate and timely information exists
throughout their organization."
