  • Given these scenarios and the current hybrid climate, it is not surprising that integration is among the top concerns for IT executives when it comes to adopting SaaS applications. This is reflected in a recent survey by Saugatuck, arguably the leading analyst for cloud computing. When Saugatuck asked a group of IT executives what were their top concerns regarding SaaS adoption and deployment, integration was second only to security on their list. The concern for integration was not only relevant to enterprise applications. The same integration concerns came up for flat files, data structures and other SaaS applications.
  • Given these prevalent concerns regarding integration, it is not surprising that many IT organizations have felt hesitation if not outright rejection of SaaS applications. According to a Gartner study conducted in 2009 on why many CIO’s were actually transitioning away from SaaS deployments, 56% responded it was due to the impact of integration requirements on their systems. So, we can see the complexity of integrating applications has obviously been a driving factor for adoption and implementation of SaaS solutions. Main Points:. Forrester surveyed a number of CIOs and 67% of them said that integration was the #1 reason why they *shy away* from the cloud. Gartner surveyed a number of existing cloud computing customers and 56% said that integration was the #1 reason why they *moved away* from the cloud So it is is the # 1 problem for both ‘adoption’ and ‘stickiness’ of cloud offerings.
  • The complexity of today’s application integration needs and the limitations of current solutions are precisely why Cast Iron developed the OmniConnect platform. OmniConnect was designed to meet the specific needs of connecting your cloud applications, on-premise applications and any hybrid environment between the two. It can connect one-to-one or scale to connect one-to-many application end-points, providing a platform to effectively and rapidly consolidate and manage the application functionality in your enterprise regardless of how it was deployed. What makes OmniConnect stand out from the three previous integration options mentioned are that it is complete, proven and trusted. Let’s go into a bit more detail on why being complete, proven and trusted makes OmniConnect unique as well as the preferred option for organizations seeking to integrate their applications. Notes: remove OmniConnect, replace with spiffy new branding for CI Integration Platform
  • The first and arguably most important point is the OmniConnect platform provides complete functionality to connect all applications in your enterprise. It is the only platform available that provides a complete flexibility in deployment options. In other words, you can build, run and manage an integration between applications such as SFDC and SAP and deploy it using a physical on-premise appliance, a virtual appliance, or completely in our multi-tenant cloud service. It is the only solution that allows for this choice of deployment using the same product and code-base interchangeably. Because of this, it is futureproof, meaning you can start off with one form-factor today, and easily move to another one over-time to scale to your IT strategies. The second advantage OmniConnect offers is total connectivity. This means not just industry leading SaaS and enterprise applications-over 150 to date, but every type of database, custom applications, web services and connectivity protocol. Another important feature is reusability. OmniConnect provides a user-friendly template-based approach via the Template Integration Process or TIP. These are templates of common integration scenarios which can be used as a starting-point for your integration projects. You are not alone in your integration needs and should not have to reinvent the wheel. OmniConnect gives you the benefit of previous success and best-practices available through our community of customers. Finally, this is one platform for all types of integration projects. You can use OmniConnect for data migration, process integration or even for UI mashups for taking relevant data from a backoffice application, such as SAP and displaying it witrhin a commonly used front-office application such as SFDC. Notes: swap with CIIP brand
  • So, to quickly recap, the value of this complete solutions translates to lower risk, Saving time and costs associated with building and deploying connectors for each new project and having one platform for all types of integration projects means an increased ROI and lower TCO. Notes; ditto
  • That’s the high-level overview of what makes OmniConnect complete as an integration platform. But to further this point, we can take a moment to go over some details in functionality that organizations find necessary for successfully integrating their applications. Cast Iron took these functional requirements coming from the field and saw the deficit in the existing product offerings available in the market. It architected OmniConnect with the goal of providing complete functionality to meet the integration needs and requirements that IT and business were demanding. ***Note – at this point go over some key features your customer may have already specified in the RFP or pre-sales cycle.
  • It is because of the reliability that this complete functional set that the application vendors themselves trust Cast Iron to form strategic partnerships. In fact, he world’s leading cloud megabrands are partnering with Cast Iron; working closely with us to solve the issues of integration for their customers. We’re the only integration provider today that can provide the benefit of all these partnerships.
  • The third factor that sets OmniConnect apart from competing solutions is that it is proven with thousands of customer integrations and a wide portfolio of customer success cases. So, we can prove by previous success how we can solve your particular integration scenario.
  • A few quick examples of our proven success integrating applications which are relevant to your particular scenario: We see a number of organizations which had the need to connect their CRM system, in this case SFDC to various back-end ERP systems. I’d like to highlight the duration of these projects; as we can see, these large organizations, in many cases spanning multiple geographies, were able to accomplish enterprise application integration in just days. Notes: Sweep, format
  • And as we can see, once they were able to successfully integrate the initial systems for their project, they were able to leverage Cast Iron OmniConnect’s platform for future integrations. So, while they may have started off using OmniConnect for point-to-point integration, they were able to subsequently use it as a platform for additional projects, given the reusability and template-based architecture we spoke about.
  • Integrated marketing (TV, Print, Direct Mail). Direct Mail single largest portion of what they do. Non-profit is the biggest sector. Salvation Army, Red Cross solicitations. (Put Logos on slide). If you are producing millions of pieces of direct mail a year, ever single piece is personalized. It will have name and donation history and personalized information. You can see the amt of dependent data. If an order comes from Atlanta Area Metro Red Cross campaign, they will need 10K names. 10K orders come every month. Complex order to contain flexible, personalized data for delivery. High volume. Need accountablility and reconciliation for public company. Need order drive financials for reporting purposes via back office integration. Less than ¼ of the current end-points. Database, data-processing and production vendors are twice as many now. CI is integration backbone between “internal systems” (SFDC included) as well as webseriveces backbone for vendors. About5 20 end-points now. ¼ being cloud, 10 on-premise, the others FTP connection (not on premise). Output for FTP connections being flat-files. Multiple systems with multiple destinations. Data determines where file goes; i.e. order file contains data from ½ dozen vendors. i.e. specific fields within the file. Routed via CI workfflow.
  • Liked proactive approach.
  • What we’d like to do at this point is transition to a live demonstration of our product, to give you a real-time view of a scenario which mirrors the challenges you are facing. The goal here is to reiterate the value of real-time bi-directional integration accomplished through a simplified, user-friendly interface with the ability to reuse this information for future projects. We’d also like to highlight some key functionality along the way which are relevant to your particular integration project.
  • To recap from the demo, we want to ensure you understand the value of the ability of our solution to accomplish your integration project. OmniConnect a proven solution; chosen by more SFDC customers than any other vendor. Not surprisingly, it is trusted not only by Salesforce.com, but by every other industry-leading application vendor in the world, who rely on us to be their strategic integration partner. And finally, OmniConnect is a complete solution, with a full feature-set that allows you to purchase one platform for your immediate integration needs, as well as providing the reusability and scalability for all your future integration projects. Thank you for your time, and with that, let’s open this up for any questions you may have.
