Contest Will Determine "Dream Widget" to Be Built and Offered to Cloud Computing Community for Free
BERWYN, PA -- (Marketwire) -- 10/22/09 -- Boomi (www.boomi.com), the market and technology leader for cloud-computing integration, kicked off a contest today that invites salesforce.com customers to contribute and vote (http://dream.boomi.com) for their "dream widget" -- the integration they would most like between any third-party application and Salesforce CRM. Boomi is opening up the selection process to the salesforce.com community to decide which integration would be the most useful in today's business environment. Ideas may include anything from social media applications to enterprise software. Boomi will rapidly build the most popular selection and offer it for free to any salesforce.com customer who visits the Boomi booth (#409) at Dreamforce 2009. The contest will run from now until Oct. 30, 2009.
"We're soliciting input from the salesforce.com community to deliver the integration they feel will unleash the most potential from the Salesforce CRM for their business," said Rick Nucci, Co-Founder and CTO, Boomi. "This initiative highlights Boomi's commitment to community driven innovation, and allows us to showcase the power of our AtomSphere platform by delivering an out-of-the-box integration that solves a real business problem and can be setup in minutes."
Boomi Widgets are pre-built, easy-to-use, on-demand connections between popular business applications. The company announced the availability of its Widgets product in late July and has since enabled its partners to build and deliver integrations to applications including ADP, Ascent, Coupa, Glovia, Intuit Partner Platform, Marketo, Microsoft Dynamics GP, NetSuite, QuickBooks, Salesforce CRM, Saasu, Taleo and Zuora.
