Boomi and Nomura Research Institute partner to support business digitalisation

Boomi, the intelligent connectivity and automation leader, announced a new partnership agreement with Nomura Research Institute, a leading think-tank and systems integrator in Japan. Boomi and NRI have launched services for IT modernisation and data integration use cases in all industries, based on a mutual understanding of the value of integration platform as a service – iPaaS for business operations in today’s digital economy.

“In recent years, the corporate IT domain has rapidly increased the use of cloud services,” said Hideki Saito, Senior Managing Director, DX Platform Division, NRI. “The Boomi AtomSphere Platform will help our clients meet their IT modernisation and data integration needs, and together, we will contribute to solving many of their most pressing business challenges.”

NRI supports corporate business transformation by combining software as a service product and believes integration platforms are increasingly important for businesses to harness the value of their data. Throughout an enterprise environment, data becomes dispersed and stored among various systems, applications, and siloed workflows, making it essential to use iPaaS for data integration and integrated data management. According to a report from 451 Research, “one in four organisations have more than 50 distinct data silos.” After comparing various iPaaS products, NRI selected the Boomi AtomSphere Platform based on its clear licensing structure, ease of development and learning, and stability.

“As the use of cloud services expands in Japan, legacy integration tools falter, and demand for iPaaS continues to grow rapidly,” said Kazunori Hori, Head of Business Development, Japan at Boomi. “Boomi will boost NRI’s consulting and system implementation support services to help clients quickly and effectively reform their corporate operations. We have already started implementation projects with NRI clients and are committed to working with NRI to make SaaS data integration and unified data management quick and easy for all industries.”

As a category-leading, global software as a service company with more than 20,000 customers, Boomi touts a growing user community of over 100,000 members, a worldwide network of more than 800 partners, and one of the largest arrays of global system integrators in the iPaaS space.
