Systems integrator, IntegrationWorks, and Dell Boomi, which provides application and data integration as a service, have announced what they say is an industry-first integration platform-as-a-service (iPaaS) that will allow government agencies and private enterprises to connect any combination of cloud or on-premises applications.
“Working with Dell Boomi, IntegrationWorks will launch a self-service integration platform to alleviate the complexity surrounding traditional integration projects which are typically lengthy and resource-consuming,” the company said.
According to IntegrationWorks traditional integration solutions often include costly license fees, complex software agreements, and convoluted implementation methodologies. In contrast the Dell Boomi AtomSphere integration platform “is simple to deploy, delivers fast time-to-value and is extremely cost-effective.”
IntegrationWorks says it will be able to implement the first iPaaS solution across government agencies in the country by using the NZ Government-approved Revera Homeland Cloud platform. IntegrationWorks is a member of the Stack Alliance, a group of ICT organisations led by Spark’s cloud company, Revera, which provides services to the New Zealand government.
IntegrationWorks’ managing director, Grant McKeen, said: “We saw a major need in the market to develop shareable connectors for government and private enterprises across New Zealand. Leveraging the Dell Boomi AtomSphere platform was the obvious choice given its ease to deploy and exceptionally fast time-to-value.”
He added: “A cloud-based integration solution customised through IntegrationWorks using the Dell Boomi platform enables rapid time-to-market for new digital channels. It also results in a significant reduction of errors, substantial cost savings and the ability to connect any application that is cloud-based, legacy, or on-premises.”
McKeen said the offering would also address concerns around data sovereignty. “We have developed a comprehensive integration strategy that allows for integration connectors to keep data within New Zealand borders, and only have the data transaction framework processed through the cloud.”
