ROUND ROCK, Texas, Dec. 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Dell Boomi™ (Boomi) the leading provider of cloud integration and workflow automation software to build The Connected Business, today announced that its cloud-based integration platform has helped Cornell University modernize its IT strategy.
As one of the top educational institutions in the country with 9,000 faculty and staff members and more than 21,000 students, Cornell was utilizing slow and outdated administrative system interconnect technology in its business and student offices across the university.
Cornell began its cloud-first strategy with a Workday implementation and selected Boomi as a core technology to provide an integration solution that offered faster time to market, at a lower cost and with easier long-term maintenance. It was vital to Cornell that an adopted solution must have the ability to easily scale and not require deep technical and product knowledge. With Boomi, Cornell modernized its IT strategy and improved its best of breed applications like Workday, while still having the opportunity to easily manage its current on premise applications.
"Cornell has enacted 'cloudification' – what we're calling our journey to the cloud," said John Parker, Software Engineer IV at Cornell University. "Cornell had a lot of legacy, on premise applications that were difficult and expensive to maintain. Boomi helped us modernize both our strategy and our move to cloud-based, best of breed applications with much more streamlined and simple upgrade paths. Today, Boomi provides the ability to simplify our integration processes and we no longer have to worry about unmanageable, outdated code."
Now, with Boomi, Cornell has the opportunity to not only achieve modernization with high scale and low complexity, but also enable employees to become Citizen Integrators. Today, businesses have fast moving digital projects and while IT can sometimes be a bottleneck, integrations that are created outside of IT create security, compliance, governance and technical-debt risks. Boomi provides the opportunity to educate and empower Cornell employees to easily establish integrations.
Cornell has experienced:
- Increased innovation as developers move from primarily spending time maintaining applications to developing projects that drive business value
- A move to Amazon web services (AWS) for a majority of administrative systems, reducing costs
- Faster implementation of best of breed applications like Workday, Concur and Longview
- Reduced support costs because integrations are more stable and easier to understand
- Established certified Dell Boomi developers within four months, which could have otherwise taken years
"Cornell is one of the top Ivy League universities in the country, and their cloud-strategy is on the same level," said Chris Port, COO at Dell Boomi. "We are pleased to partner with Cornell through their 'cloudification' initiative and ultimately enable their best of breed strategy, simplify their technology, help them spend less time on support and transform their organization."
