Panel Will Discuss New Trends in SaaS Integration that Impact SaaS Adoption as Well as Promote Mash-ups, Composite Applications and Web Services
Berwyn, Pa - (04/22/2008) Boomi, the market and technology leader for on-demand integration, today announced that Rick Nucci, Boomi's co-founder and CTO, will participate in a panel discussion on software-as-a-service (SaaS) integration at Software 2008 on Wednesday, April 30 in Las Vegas.
Co-located with INTEROP, Software 2008 showcases how software can contribute to the overall enterprise strategy. The panel discussion is included in the SaaS and cloud computing track which looks at the challenges of provisioning applications with on-demand infrastructures, and examines the use of on-demand software applications. Moderated by OpSource, the panel entitled "Think Outside the Box: The End of Standalone SaaS" will discuss platform choices that enable mash-ups and composite applications, discuss how Web services affect application development and integration, and how to integrate a wide variety of SaaS and legacy applications
"The acceptance and popularity of SaaS applications has continued to rise at a dramatic pace, yet integration has been a major stumbling block in the SaaS industry," explained Rick Nucci, Boomi's co-founder and CTO. "While solutions exist to replicate data between a limited number of SaaS applications and on-premises databases, the Boomi On-Demand offering is the first complete integration solution delivered in an on-demand model. Boomi has accelerated the adoption of SaaS by eliminating the time, cost and complexity associated with traditional on-premises integration software packages and hardware appliances."
Using Boomi On Demand, users can securely build, deploy and manage integrations using only a Web browser. Integrations are built visually with familiar point-and-click, drag-and-drop ease. No coding is required, and users pay only for the connections they create.
Once integration processes are built, they are deployed via a lightweight, dynamic runtime engine called an "AtomSM." Built with patent pending technology, Boomi Atoms contain all the components required to execute an integration process from end-to-end, including connectors, transformation rules, decision handling and processing logic. They can be hosted for SaaS-to-SaaS integration or downloaded behind a company's firewall for SaaS to on-premises integration.
Boomi is the market and technology leader in on-demand integration. Boomi's patent-pending technology enables any combination of SaaS and on-premises integration to be accomplished directly from the Web, eliminating the challenge of installing and maintaining software packages or hardware appliances. Highly embeddable, scalable and distributable, Boomi's architecture is being used to power the SaaS ecosystem including application and data integration, platform-as-a-service and cloud computing, and hosted business intelligence, mashups and analytics. Boomi's unique "pay-per-connection" model allows organizations to pay for only the connections they deploy at a fraction of the cost of traditional on-premises integration solutions.
