Leveraging the SuiteFlex Development Platform, NetSuite Customers Can Now Deploy Boomi On-Demand Over the Web to Integrate NetSuite with Other SaaS or On-Premises Applications
SAN MATEO, Calif. and BERWYN, Pa. - (10/31/2007) Boomi today announced the availability of Boomi On DemandSM for NetSuite's SuiteFlex technology platform. NetSuite customers can now deploy Boomi On Demand over the Web to integrate NetSuite with other SaaS (software as a service) or on-premises applications quickly and affordably. The SuiteFlex Development platform allows third party applications to integrate rich transaction data – orders, inventory, invoices and shipments – with their applications, and enable customers and third-party developers to build new workflows and applications that look and operate as if NetSuite's own developers wrote them.
Because NetSuite holds critical business data of a company – orders, invoices, Web site transactions, shipping records, time tracking and payroll data – the applications that are built on it using SuiteFlex are much more powerful and business critical. With Boomi On Demand, users can securely build, deploy and manage integrations to and from NetSuite directly from the Web using only a Web browser.
Integrations are built visually with familiar point-and-click, drag-and-drop ease. 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, including connectors, transformation rules, decision handling and processing logic. Atoms can be hosted for SaaS-to-SaaS integration or downloaded behind a customer's firewall for on-premises integration.
"Boomi On Demand is poised to play a critical and unique role in the NetSuite community," commented Ray Tetlow, chairman and CEO of Skyytek Corporation (www.skyytek.com), NetSuite's Solution Provider of the Year 2007 and largest reseller and implementation partner. "Skyytek regularly sets up and integrates NetSuite applications for our clients, and with the advent of Boomi On Demand, we've seen a dramatic reduction in the time and cost associated with getting the application up and running for these companies."
"Traditional integration solutions are completely incongruent with the SaaS experience in terms of cost, complexity and time to implement. Boomi On Demand is built to natively handle the complexities of SaaS and on-premises application integration, making it much easier than ever for companies to integrate their SaaS workflows with existing business processes," commented Bob Moul, president and CEO of Boomi. "And because we are a true SaaS platform, customers can buy integration per connection, making it significantly more affordable. By providing a ready-to-deploy interface for the SuiteFlex platform, Boomi On Demand has made it possible for businesses to quickly connect their existing SaaS and on-premises applications with NetSuite."
About SuiteFlex and NetSuite's SuiteFlex Developer Program
SuiteFlex is an application development platform that enables the creation of third-party vertical applications within NetSuite, as well as business process customization for any end-user company. SuiteFlex includes several industry technology advances and innovations including additions to SuiteScript – which allows for on demand programming using only a Web browser on a device with Internet access. As a part of SuiteScript, NetSuite introduced Suitelets and SuiteScript UI Objects, allowing customers and third-party developers to build new workflows and applications that can look and operate as if NetSuite's own developers wrote them. In addition, SuiteFlex introduces a dramatic new concept for the Software as a Service market — "Service as Software," SuiteBundler — to deliver new integrated vertical solutions by packaging their Suitelets and other extensions with NetSuite's core ERP/CRM/Ecommerce application. SuiteBundler enables solution providers to embed their industry-best
practices, knowledge and applications — traditionally delivered as one-off services — into the actual NetSuite application for verticals in a repeatable fashion.
