Industry's First Integration Platform as a Service Recognized for Easy Integration to On-Premises, SaaS, PaaS and Cloud Computing Applications
Berwyn, PA - (01/05/2009) Boomi, the market and technology leader for on-demand integration, announced today that it has been awarded a bMighty Innovation Award for Boomi AtomSphere, the industry's first integration platform-as-a-service.
The bMighty Innovation Awards recognize 12 of the best products for growing businesses and included companies such as Apple, Facebook and salesforce.com. AtomSphere was selected by bMighty editors for its open platform and established network of SaaS, PaaS, cloud-based, and on-premises software providers.
According to the bMighty award, "Boomi's appeal lies in an established network of cloud, SaaS, PaaS, and on-premises providers that includes name brands and niche players and an on-demand, self-service model that lowers the barriers to entry. And by providing an open platform, the integration capabilities the vendor offers continue to expand, which means more choice for you."
As the SaaS market innovates and software providers move more applications to the cloud, small to medium size businesses increasingly need to integrate these applications quickly and efficiently. Up until recently, this was a costly and tedious task often left in the hands of end-users.
With the introduction of AtomSphere, Boomi put the task of integration where it belongs, in the hands of independent software vendors (ISVs) and developers. ISVs and PaaS providers such as salesforce.com, Intuit, Centive, SmartTurn, Taleo, and Zuora are already using AtomSphere to solve the integration challenge on behalf of their customers.
"We are delighted to have received this award from bMighty in such a short time since launching the AtomSphere network," said Bob Moul, president and CEO of Boomi. "Along with our customers and partners, bMighty recognizes that Boomi is revolutionizing integration through the application of SaaS, Web 2.0, and social networking concepts to the domain of integration. Our approach finally makes integration accessible and affordable to companies of all sizes."
Widely recognized as the industry's only pure SaaS integration platform, AtomSphere can handle any combination of SaaS and on-premises integration through the use of a lightweight, dynamic runtime engine, called an"Atom." Boomi Atoms contain all the components required to execute an integration process from end-to-end and can be deployed in the cloud for SaaS-to-SaaS integration or behind the firewall for on-premises integration.
Boomi AtomSphere greatly reduces the cost and complexity normally associated with integrating applications. AtomSphere dramatically shortens time to market for new ISVs and eliminates integration headaches for existing ISVs. It gives ISVs the ability to "go deep," building strong competitive differentiation with rich functionality, while Boomi "goes wide" by handling integration with applications in the cloud and behind the firewall.
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. Leading SaaS players such as salesforce.com, NetSuite, Intuit, Centive, Taleo, and Zuora rely on AtomSphere to accelerate time to market, increase sales, and eliminate the headaches associated with integration.
