Pure SaaS Integration Platform to Power 100% SaaS and Open Source Strategy at Ingres
Berwyn, PA - (01/14/2009) Boomi, the market and technology leader for on-demand integration, announced today that Ingres Corporation, a leading provider of open source database management software and support services, has selected Boomi AtomSphereSM for its Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) integration technology. AtomSphere will be used to integrate internal business applications including finance, human resources, and analytics for Ingres.
Frequently featured in the press and blogosphere, Ingres is a company that has adopted a strategy of using 100% SaaS and open source solutions for its internal business systems. To complete this vision, the company needed a SaaS integration solution to complement its portfolio of SaaS and open source applications. Doug Harr, CIO at Ingres, was recently profiled in an InformationWeek article where he spoke about the process of evaluating and selecting a SaaS integration solution. Harr concluded that Boomi was the best choice based on total cost of ownership, ease of use, and breadth of applications supported.
"Boomi was a natural choice as it epitomizes the value of SaaS and true multi-tenant solutions," said Harr. "Just a few years ago, we would have had to pay $100,000 or more for an enterprise grade integration platform like this or spend tens of thousands on writing custom code. As a mid-sized company, that was one of our biggest barriers to attaining the value from our investment in back-office applications."
After implementing its initial integration processes in just a few days, Ingres is already experiencing a return on its investment through elimination of manual processes, duplicate data entry, and data synchronization errors. In addition, the company is benefitting from a more comprehensive view of its data and enhanced business intelligence.
"Doug and the team at Ingres are definitely thought leaders when it comes to what's possible with SaaS," said Bob Moul, Boomi's president and CEO. "Working with Ingres is a natural fit as our views and strategies on using pure SaaS technology are perfectly aligned. We view Ingres as a showcase account for the entire cloud computing industry."
With AtomSphere, Boomi has opened its popular cloud-based integration platform to become the industry standard backbone for all SaaS integration services. In 2008 alone, Boomi signed over 100 new customers adding to its existing client base of over 300 customers in 11 countries around the world. Additionally, 33 of the leading Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), cloud computing, and system integration companies have joined Boomi's partner program, endorsing Boomi's revolutionary approach to SaaS integration.
Boomi is the market-leading provider of on-demand integration technology and the creator of AtomSphere, the industry's first integration platform-as-a-service. AtomSphere connects providers and consumers of SaaS applications via a pure SaaS integration platform that does not require software or appliances. ISVs and businesses alike benefit by connecting to the industry's largest network of SaaS, PaaS, on-premises and cloud computing environments in a seamless and fully self-service model.
