P&N is Western Australia’s largest member-owned bank. It delivers personal and business banking, insurance, and financial planning services to over 90,000 clients. With high volumes of private client, employee and partner information generated by and stored within its internal systems, P&N Bank went to market seeking a versatile integration solution to manage its environment while keeping that data safe. In conjunction with customer relationship management (CRM) consultant and Boomi partner, CRM Online, P&N Bank selected the Boomi platform to connect its various business-critical and bespoke applications, such as loan origination, CRM and lead management, while maintaining the integrity and security of that data. Importantly, Boomi provides P&N Bank with the unique capability to connect on-premise data with cloud-based environments. This aligns with the organisation’s strict security requirements while allowing it to capitalise on the benefits of flexible data synchronisation. “We have a set of business requirements that rely on the exchange of data between several systems, and so we needed an integration solution to make the management of those apps more straightforward,” said Erik Fenna, CIO at P&N Bank. “Boomi’s connectors, simple workflow and style sheet-driven transformation of files gives us the ability to maintain an up-to-date data environment within the confines of our strict security protocols. By introducing the solution, we have a way of keeping data accurate and delivering it to employees managing our client accounts. Since we have confidence our client data is accurate and protected, we can focus on driving value for those clients.” The Boomi platform is being used to underpin P&N Bank’s Work Management System through which tasks are queued and assigned on the basis of priority. This has eliminated a series of manual processes, while also giving employees full visibility into the information required to perform their particular roles; any additions and changes made are automatically replicated across the organisation to further boost the customer experience delivered by the bank. Boomi has also transformed P&N Bank’s Broker Network which is used by around 1,000 partners. It has enabled the bank to modernise its single data feed into a multi-data feed while maintaining the same formats and protocols, with a gateway protecting private information shared between the parties. Furthermore, the Boomi platform has created a more reliable link between P&N Bank’s data warehouse and its Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system so that data is updated, configured and maintained inside a consistent interface. Due to the low-code design of Boomi, these transactions can be performed in-house through an easy-to-use interface rather than requiring the bank to hire additional resources. “Customer Experience is an increasingly important competitive differentiator between financial services organisations,” said Michael Evans, Managing Director Asia-Pacific and Japan, Dell Boomi. “Using the Boomi platform, P&N Bank is able to ensure the timely and accurate exchange of data across its client applications so that employees are appropriately-resourced to manage client enquiries. In doing so, the bank has created a connected business that optimises a customer experience across its services portfolio.” About Dell Boomi Dell Boomi (Boomi), an independent business unit of Dell, is the leading provider of cloud integration and workflow automation software to build The Connected Business.

We’ve been growing quickly since we started a little over a year ago, and as we continue to expand, we sought innovative partners to help us build a scalable, secure infrastructure of our own,” said Igor Mameshin, CTO at Agile Stacks. “Programs like Okta for Startups are critical for young companies like us as they provide founders with the best tools available on the market for free or at a low cost – allowing us to use Okta to power our authentication layer and user store as a foundational piece of our application so we can focus our precious resources on innovation, business strategy and differentiation.” “We’re focused on changing the way people work at People.ai – taking the manual work off of sales and creating sales and marketing alignment based on real data and intelligence,” said Oleg Rogynskyy, CEO at People.ai. “As a growing company ourselves, we looked for innovative partners to help us take care of the behind-the-scenes work of our own infrastructure and security so we can focus on growing our business. Y Combinator, which we graduated from in 2016, taught us to spend our cycles on the things that will help us to go from vision to reality – and being able to partner with world class solutions like Okta allow us to do just that.” For more information about Okta for Startups, email OktaforStartups@okta.com.

Supporting Quotes “Boomi’s cloud-native, unified platform allows you to scale and move to the cloud, however we understand that supporting the realities of today’s enterprise means it's a journey to best-of-breed cloud,” said Boomi Chief Product Officer, Steve Wood. “With Boomi, our customers always have access to the industry’s most advanced integration capabilities to help them digitally transform their organisation and move toward being a successful Connected Business.” “At Quanta we have hundreds of IT systems, thousands of integrations, and we frequently acquire new companies. A lack of a standardised integration approach led to challenges with timely accessing quality data across our companies,” said Kurt Witt, manager of Data Management Services, Quanta Services. “In response, we created our integration center of excellence to define and deliver integration services that add structure to enterprise data and build a support framework for enterprise integration. The benefits of using Boomi for real-time information access, to streamline business processes and create integrity across multiple systems help us deliver an agile, connected business.” “Subscription-based businesses have benefited from stable and predictable revenue projections, data-driven insights from customers, and large economies of scale,” said Mike Aaron, Vice President of Product at Zuora. “Boomi’s ability to connect Zuora with cloud and on premise finance and CRM applications allows more organisations to benefit at an even larger scale.

Founded in 1813, The Benevolent Society provides a range of support services to people with disabilities, children and families, older Australians and carers. With the goal of helping Australians live their best lives, the not-for-profit kickstarted its cloud migration which, over a 12-month period, will help create a mobile workforce and streamline internal processes including reporting to government, and subsequently further improve its employees’ ability to continue providing services to Australians. “Technology is playing an increasingly prominent part in the way we operate as an organisation,” said James Foot, Director of IT at The Benevolent Society. “For us, a key part in improving the service and the experience we provide to clients begins with the connection at our back end. That means ensuring important client information is readily accessible through a secure interface. Boomi provides us with a platform to synchronise our systems so the data that is generated is accurate, up-to-date, and easy to use by our teams.” Boomi’s integration platform-as-a-service (iPaaS) was selected to centralise The Benevolent Society’s applications and the data they generate so that employees can access critical resources on any device, in any location and at any time. This is particularly significant for The Benevolent Society’s client-facing practitioners who are no longer restricted by location and time, and can now deliver more elaborate and timely services to clients. For example, any time a client calls in to The Benevolent Society’s contact centre and is authenticated, the contact centre manager will instantly have all information at hand without requiring the caller to provide a detailed background on the conversation again. This includes details on how many times the client has interacted with The Benevolent Society, what services they are receiving, and what follow-up questions to ask. Boomi has also simplified The Benevolent Society’s entire data environment by connecting dozens of systems – including up to 20 customer relationship management (CRM) platforms, human resources tools and bespoke apps which were formerly siloed – into a single interface. This not only ensures data is up-to-date and accurate for all users, but removes the need for repetitive and time-consuming manual data entry into multiple databases. The additional benefit of consolidating this previously disparate data is that The Benevolent Society is now able to streamline processes related to its reporting obligations. Some Australian funding models require organisations to report client statistics including the number of clients it services and how many services are being provided. The Boomi technology is also supporting the onboarding of 800 new staff and 9,000 new clients following The Benevolent Society’s joining together with the NSW Government’s Department of Family and Community Services (FACS) Disability Community Services Teams. “By using Boomi to create a connected business, The Benevolent Society is even further boosting its ability to help Australians in need,” said Michael Evans, Managing Director Asia-Pacific and Japan at Dell Boomi. “The integration of apps and data equips The Benevolent Society’s employees with the resources they need to perform their jobs anywhere and at any time. As a result, they can respond even faster to optimise the experiences of clients with a personalised touch.” About Dell Boomi Dell Boomi (Boomi), an independent business unit of Dell, is the leading provider of cloud integration and workflow automation software to build The Connected Business.

AMCAP provides third and fourth party logistics for a range of companies including Holden, Ford, Subaru, KTM, Suzuki, Volkswagen, Hyundai, Mitsubishi and Kia. Its 250 employees use various warehouse management (WMS) and enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems to manage the national operation. However the organisation required a means of integrating this IT environment to accelerate its supply chain from order to delivery. “Having recently migrated our warehouse operations from a traditional in-house mainframe to Manhattan SCALE, we are implementing Boomi to ensure that all the systems and data our staff relies on are seamlessly integrated with full visibility,” said Karen Aisthorpe, National IT/IS Manager at AMCAP. The Boomi integration platform-as-a-service (iPaaS) will support all AMCAP’s application integration processes, replacing a series of unique integration instances the organisation was using. It will also provide powerful data management and workflow automation capabilities that deliver outcomes in a fraction of the time of legacy middleware technologies. “By substituting various in-house integrations with Boomi, staff will be able to operate through a single interface without compromising access to or accuracy of the data with which they are working,” said Aisthorpe. “Consequently, we will consolidate multiple inventories into one so that there is full transparency over the information from the customer systems, mainframe and WMS.” The Boomi solution will also allow AMCAP to respond to various customer demands. For example, AMCAP has been able to introduce real-time cycle count adjustments – which were formerly available on a weekly basis – giving clients to-the-minute updates to stock information, resulting in accelerated order-to-delivery times. Additionally, AMCAP is also using the Boomi platform to integrate its back-end system with the SAP Ariba network to help transform its procurement operations. This integration will provide its key Tier 1 and 2 mining customers with touchless transactions while driving significant efficiency gains for AMCAP and its business units. AMCAP’s integration strategy will help further boost its competitiveness in what it describes as a tough financial climate as it not only boosts customer experience, but prepares AMCAP to adopt newer technologies and integrations as the market evolves. “AMCAP operates in a time-sensitive industry that relies on to-the-minute accuracy in order to deliver to customer expectations,” said Michael Evans, Managing Director Asia-Pacific and Japan, Dell Boomi. “By using Boomi to transform its IT and data from a traditional, on-premises model to a modern, powerful and flexible environment, AMCAP is able to ensure its systems are fully-integrated so that the supply chain is streamlined and customers receive products on time.” About Dell Boomi Dell Boomi (Boomi), an independent business unit of Dell, is the leading provider of cloud integration and workflow automation to build The Connected Business.

Document Negotiation on Secured Signing Provides a Quicker, Clearer Negotiation Process 2017-10-02T20:43:27Z document-negotiation-on-secured-signing-provides-a-quicker-clearer-negotiation-process Document Negotiation on Secured Signing provides a quicker, clearer negotiation process with everyone always working from the latest version, the ability to seek specialist advice online and a final agreement signed and sealed with the personal digital signature of each party.   Secured Signing announces the addition of Document Negotiation, giving their customers a comprehensive, automated online document signing workflow that progresses a document from draft to final agreement more quickly. Parties to the negotiation can mark-up the online document by striking through text, adding additional text, footnotes and additional pages as required. The structured, yet flexible process, provides complete clarity of the sequence of changes to the document with each change initialled and date stamped. Enabling each signer to work from the same online document avoids confusion, wasted effort and wasted time.   Participants in the negotiation process can invite their advisors to participate directly in the process. All changes to the document made by an advisor are approved by the signer and submitted to the other negotiation participants for their approval. Document negotiation is flexible, allowing the document to cycle through all parties as many times as it takes to reach an agreement.     During the negotiation phase, electronic signatures are used to allow further changes. Once all parties have agreed, the signing process commences immediately, using personal, X.509 digital signatures to seal the document from further changes and providing independent signature verification. Optionally adding Secured Signing's new video confirmation to the signing workflow provides complete confidence in who is signing the agreement.   "The value we deliver for our customers is automating their document transactions and making it as quick and convenient as possible for their customers to do business with them." says Mike Eyal, Founder and Managing Director of Secured Signing.

Dell Boomi Global Study on The Connected Business Identifies Cost Savings, Revenue Growth Through Successful Integration 2017-09-21T23:10:39Z dell-boomi-global-study-on-the-connected-business-identifies-cost-savings-revenue-growth-through-successful-integration ROUND ROCK, Texas – September 21, 2017 – Dell Boomi™ (Boomi), the leading provider of cloud integration and workflow automation software to build The Connected Business, today announced results of a survey that documents millions of dollars in cost savings and revenue growth by becoming a connected business. The study also found that the level of organizational connectivity is set to nearly double within a six-year period, and that organizations are rapidly adopting cloud-based integration platform as a service (iPaaS) technology as deployment of cloud applications continues to accelerate. While the study, “The Connected Business: a survey report on business connectivity and the importance of integration,” identifies a clear trend toward greater connectivity across businesses, it also highlights the impact that poor integration can have on organizations. Nearly nine in 10 (87 percent) of respondents have experienced drawbacks from poor integration, including high costs, delays, and subpar efficiency and collaboration. Nearly half (49 percent) say that poor integration is holding their organizations back. The study, conducted for Boomi by the research firm Vanson Bourne, is based on a global survey of 900 IT decision-makers that outlines the state of integration today, the effect of poor integration, and the benefits realized when integration fully connects a business. Other highlights include: 88 percent of respondents believe that becoming more connected as a business will have a positive impact on revenue growth in the next 12 months Average cost savings since deploying an integration solution exceed $3 million For 74 percent of CIOs surveyed, successful integration will be crucial to remaining competitive over the next five years 81 percent say the right integration solution would greatly improve business performance 67 percent have missed business opportunities as a result of poor integration 59 percent characterize integration as the “Achilles heel” for their organization “Organizations clearly recognize the critical need for integration to improve efficiency, visibility and competitive advantage as the pace of business accelerates and new applications are deployed,” said Chris McNabb, Boomi CEO. “This study documents millions of dollars in bottom- and top-line impact by becoming a connected business, as well as the ability to drive digital transformation.” Benefits of Integration and The Connected Business Organizations see significant benefits with integration to build The Connected Business, with ability to connect everything and engage everywhere to achieve business agility, data-driven decision-making and a laser focus on customers. As top benefits, respondents cited improved productivity (73 percent), improved data accessibility (68 percent), more efficient workflows (57 percent), increased profitability (54 percent) and faster, more accurate decision-making (48 percent). Respondents also cited other “crucial outcomes” of integration as the ability to improve operational efficiency (54 percent), be more responsive to customer needs (50 percent), allow for faster innovation (48 percent), connect data and workflows for insights (46 percent) and validate and enrich data for better data quality (44 percent). These benefits contributed to average savings of $3.26 million for organizations since deploying an integration solution, the study found. At the same time, 88 percent of respondents say that becoming a connected business will enable them to increase revenue. Over 12 months, respondents estimated that their connected businesses could expect revenue to grow 11 percent, or $544 million. In addition, 89 percent of respondents agree that becoming a more connected business will help drive digital transformation within their organizations. Among those using iPaaS, 74 percent said it has made their organizations smarter, 72 percent said faster and 62 percent said better. From a technology perspective, respondents said that an integration solution should improve data integrity (61 percent), ensure information security (59 percent), offer end-to-end connectivity in a single platform (55 percent), accelerate workflow implementations (48 percent) and allow for faster innovation (46 percent). The State of Integration Today As it is, 62 percent of organizations today use an integration solution, while 38 percent do not. Those with an integration solution have in place on-premise middleware (60 percent), a custom in-house solution (49 percent), application-specific data import (47 percent), iPaaS (43 percent), open source integration (43 percent) and/or integration appliances (35 percent). Those organizations use three integration solutions on average. Going forward, iPaaS is the integration technology of choice. The survey finds that among organizations today using an integration solution, 94 percent will have iPaaS deployed within the next 12 months — comprised of 43 percent using iPaaS today, 43 percent in the process of adopting iPaaS, and 8 percent planning to adopt iPaaS in the next year. Impact of Poor Integration The study finds that 87 percent of organizations have suffered high costs and delays from poor integration. Moreover, 67 percent say they have missed business opportunities in the past year because of poor integration, while 8 percent say they may be missing opportunities but aren’t aware of it. Nearly two-thirds (64 percent) are still struggling with legacy middleware, while 40 percent cannot build simple, let alone sophisticated, integrations. The Connected Business survey queried IT decision-makers, including CIOs, vice presidents of IT, IT directors, IT managers and others. Industries represented include financial services, healthcare and life sciences, manufacturing, retail, energy and utilities, and higher education.
