Time to Value is the amount of time it takes a new customer to realize value from your product or service. The goal: Shorten Time to Value, build a repeatable experience, and earn more marketshare. One way to accelerate Time to Value is to continually improve the efficiency of your internal processes.
A big step toward increasing efficiency is integrating your scattered data sources into a single interface with the help of an iPaaS (integration platform as a service).
Streamlining applications, systems, and data with an iPaaS is more than just a cool business buzz. Employing an iPaaS is fast becoming a fundamental efficiency tool in a company’s competitive arsenal. An iPaaS is faster and more efficient than the old-school method of building each integration from scratch.
The bottom line: Hours and dollars returned to your workflow translates to faster Time to Value.
If you find yourself reinventing the wheel for widely-used enterprise application integrations like such as Kronos, Oracle or any other major SaaS (software as a service) platform, there’s a way to work smarter, not harder.
Using an iPaaS such as Dell Boomi — the choice for Improv Integration Specialists — it’s possible to leverage pre-built mapping and orchestration rules already successfully in use by other companies. The only hands-on time required is to customize the mapping to fit your specific business need.
According to a new Forrester Consulting study, enterprises eliminate $2.6 million in legacy integration costs over three years by moving from on-premise integration middleware to Dell Boomi’s cloud-native integration platform. It's not uncommon for some organizations to spend up to 70 percent of their time maintaining legacy on-premise middleware with routine tasks such as upgrades, hotfixes, and patches.
The days of painstakingly planning, coding, and rolling out integrations are fast becoming extinct. Organizations can no longer afford a lengthy integration plan couched in a million meetings and derailed by an ever-looming IT backlog.
The new goal: Get internal integrations up and running as fast as possible and realize outcomes sooner. And what exactly does “fast” look like? Two to five times faster — and at times — up 10-times faster when it comes to development time.
Choosing the right integration tool is critical in meeting the market's demand for digital transformation. These are just a few ways Boomi can boost your internal efficiency and improve Time to Value.
