Accelerates Time to Market for Developers and Independent Software Vendors by Eliminating Integration Burdens and Synchronizing All Applications Built on Platform with QuickBooks
Berwyn, PA - (09/15/2008) Boomi®, the market and technology leader for on-demand integration, today announced that Intuit Inc. has selected Boomi On-Demand to provide the integration service within its newly launched Intuit Partner Platform.
Through this integration partnership, Boomi on Demand will allow any applications built on the Intuit® platform to connect to and synchronize data with QuickBooks® desktop installations completely online with no development or system configuration required by end users. In addition to providing full plug and play integration with QuickBooks today, Boomi On-Demand can also support limitless SaaS and on-premises applications in the future.
"Integration is a tricky problem," said Bill Lucchini, vice president and general manager for Intuit's Platform as a Service Group. "Having the experts at Boomi on our team eliminates that problem for the 14,000 developers in the Intuit Developer Network."
The Intuit Partner Platform provides everything a developer needs to build a successful SaaS business. For the first time, developers and independent software vendors will have the ability to easily design, deploy and market on-demand collaborative and productivity applications to the four million small businesses that use QuickBooks and the 25 million employees that work in those businesses. The Intuit Partner Platform makes it easy for developers to leverage the rich design capabilities of Adobe® Flex® and the Web-based database, business logic and workflow of QuickBase, to build apps that will sync with QuickBooks data or even help people with their business problems independent of QuickBooks data. Once built, developers can post their applications on the Intuit Marketplace, where millions of small businesses look for QuickBooks add-ons.
Boomi On-Demand is the industry's only fully on-demand integration service that connects any combination of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and on-premises applications without the burden of installing and maintaining software packages or appliances. Boomi On-Demand is rapidly becoming the solution of choice for SaaS integration because it eliminates integration as a deployment hurdle, simplifies and accelerates implementations and costs a fraction of conventional integration products.
"Providing integration for the Intuit Partner Platform is an opportunity to help drive the transformation of application delivery for small and mid-size businesses," said Bob Moul, Boomi's president and CEO. "We believe in Intuit's innovative vision to build a vibrant ecosystem that delivers the benefits of enterprise applications to companies of all sizes. We share that vision. Boomi continues to power SaaS adoption by removing the integration challenge, and we're excited to partner with Intuit to deliver that same advantage to developers and customers."
