Innotas and Boomi Partner to Bring On-Demand Integration to the Project Portfolio Management Market

Boomi Provides Innotas' Customers with an Easy and Affordable Answer to SaaS Integration

Boomi has partnered with Innotas to enable Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) integration for Innotas’ on-demand project portfolio management (PPM) solutions. The Boomi On Demand offering provides Innotas’ PPM users with the ability to integrate the Innotas solution with any other SaaS or on-premise applications. Integrations are built and deployed directly from the Web without the burden of installing and maintaining software packages or hardware appliances. In addition, Innotas is using Boomi On Demand to integrate its own PPM application with salesforce.com.     

Using Boomi On Demand, Innotas’ customers can harness the power of the Web to integrate the PPM solution with applications for human resources, help desk, finance, time management and customer relationship management, to name a few possible scenarios. Customers can securely build, deploy and manage integrations directly from the Web using only a browser. Integrations are built visually with familiar point-and-click, drag-and-drop ease. No coding is required, and implementations are accomplished with exceptional speed.

“One of the biggest challenges we’ve faced as a SaaS vendor is the perception that integrating a SaaS offering with other applications is complex and costly. Ironically, the companies most attracted to the benefits of the SaaS model – small and mid-size businesses –were exactly the companies most impacted by this problem,” explained Chad Haftorson, vice president of products at Innotas. “With the introduction of Boomi On Demand, things just got a whole lot easier. The combination of the Innotas Web Services API (application programming interface) and Boomi On Demand allows companies to easily integrate services and applications in a cost-effective, pay-only-for-what-you-use model. Thanks to Boomi, integration is no longer a barrier to adoption.”

By delivering integration on-demand, Boomi has redefined the economics of purchasing integration capabilities. Companies can pay by connection and not for an entire integration software suite or appliance. Companies can employ the capabilities and functionality of sophisticated enterprise integration service at a fraction of the cost of conventional integration offerings. 

“For customers to truly exploit the power of the Innotas PPM solution, they need it to be integrated into their enterprise. Through the partnership announced today, this integration can be accomplished much easier and affordably than in the past,” explained Boomi CEO and president Bob Moul. “In addition, fully functioning integration processes can be deployed in days, and sometimes even hours. For example, in under a week, Boomi was able to complete the integration linking Innotas’ PPM application with salesforce.com. Innotas can now provide its customers with the ability to link applications and make sure accurate and timely information exists throughout their organization.”

Modern software design has fundamentally changed how we manage applications, causing many to turn to containers as the new virtual machine for resource management. As container adoption grows beyond stateless applications to stateful workloads, the need for persistent storage is foundational - something customers routinely cite as a top pain point. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Bill Borsari, Head of Systems Engineering at Datera, explored how organizations can reap the bene...
"NetApp's vision is how we help organizations manage data - delivering the right data in the right place, in the right time, to the people who need it, and doing it agnostic to what the platform is," explained Josh Atwell, Developer Advocate for NetApp, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, compared the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, examin...
In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Mike Johnston, an infrastructure engineer at Supergiant.io, discussed how to use Kubernetes to set up a SaaS infrastructure for your business. Mike Johnston is an infrastructure engineer at Supergiant.io with over 12 years of experience designing, deploying, and maintaining server and workstation infrastructure at all scales. He has experience with brick and mortar data centers as well as cloud providers like Digital Ocean, Amazon Web Services, and Rackspace. H...
Skeuomorphism usually means retaining existing design cues in something new that doesn’t actually need them. However, the concept of skeuomorphism can be thought of as relating more broadly to applying existing patterns to new technologies that, in fact, cry out for new approaches. In his session at DevOps Summit, Gordon Haff, Senior Cloud Strategy Marketing and Evangelism Manager at Red Hat, will discuss why containers should be paired with new architectural practices such as microservices ra...
In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Scott Davis, CTO of Embotics, discussed how automation can provide the dynamic management required to cost-effectively deliver microservices and container solutions at scale. He also discussed how flexible automation is the key to effectively bridging and seamlessly coordinating both IT and developer needs for component orchestration across disparate clouds – an increasingly important requirement at today’s multi-cloud enterprise.
The Software Defined Data Center (SDDC), which enables organizations to seamlessly run in a hybrid cloud model (public + private cloud), is here to stay. IDC estimates that the software-defined networking market will be valued at $3.7 billion by 2016. Security is a key component and benefit of the SDDC, and offers an opportunity to build security 'from the ground up' and weave it into the environment from day one. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Reuven Harrison, CTO and Co-Founder of Tufin, ...
DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm. In their Day 3 Keynote at 20th Cloud Expo, Chris Brown, a Solutions Marketing Manager at Nutanix, and Mark Lav...
Many organizations are now looking to DevOps maturity models to gauge their DevOps adoption and compare their maturity to their peers. However, as enterprise organizations rush to adopt DevOps, moving past experimentation to embrace it at scale, they are in danger of falling into the trap that they have fallen into time and time again. Unfortunately, we've seen this movie before, and we know how it ends: badly.
TCP (Transmission Control Protocol) is a common and reliable transmission protocol on the Internet. TCP was introduced in the 70s by Stanford University for US Defense to establish connectivity between distributed systems to maintain a backup of defense information. At the time, TCP was introduced to communicate amongst a selected set of devices for a smaller dataset over shorter distances. As the Internet evolved, however, the number of applications and users, and the types of data accessed and...
