Cloud Approach Increases Productivity, Lowers TCO
Renesas Electronics America (REA)'s on-premises, legacy integration system required a manual process of custom coding by an on-site expert and was costly and complicated. REA needed to replace the existing system. In addition, due to relocation, REA wanted to move the data center to the cloud.
Dell Boomi (Dell) (Dell Technologies)Since its founding in 2000, beginning initially with "configuration-based" integration, Boomi then introduced Visual Integration Technology to allow users to build and deploy integration processes using a visual interface and a drag and drop technique. This interface remains one of the key elements of the current Boomi platform. In 2007 Boomi released the technology now known as "AtomSphere" the industry's first Integration Cloud. AtomSphere kept the visual, point and click interface for building integrations and can be managed through a simple browser-based UI. On November 2, 2010, Boomi announced its acquisition by Dell.

- CONNECTIVITY PROTOCOLS
- USE CASES
Renesas Electronics America (REA) is a wholly owned subsidiary of Renesas Electronics Corporation, the world’s largest manufacturer of microcontrollers and the second largest manufacturer of application processors.
Dell Boomi AtomSphere provided a cloud-based solution at a fraction of the cost of the company’s previous legacy system and also helped REA increase agility. REA used Dell Boomi AtomSphere integration platform as a service (iPaaS) to integrate data from its U.S. based HRIS system to Japan each day into the SAP system and global directory management systems.

- SOLUTION MATURITY
Cutting Edge (technology has been on the market for < 2 years)
- OPERATIONAL IMPACT
Impact #1 [Data Management - Data Analysis]
Cloud solutions enable aggregation of 'big data' to enable more robust analysis and lower costs.
Impact #2 [Product Improvement - User Acceptance]
Better user acceptance with less operative training is required.
Impact #3 [Efficiency Improvement - Productivity]
REA replaced a number of manual processes with 15 Boomi integrations to improve productivity.
- QUANTITATIVE BENEFIT
REA has reduced maintenance, reporting, hardware and on-site support costs by about 89%.
REA has eliminated the need for 2.5 internal resources to integrate using the custom legacy applications to 1 offshore resource.
REA now have 57 process flows for enterprise resource planning alone.
