Case Study: Professional Services | Slalom In 2015 Slalom, a quickly growing consulting firm, embarked on an ambitious transformation initiative to move many of its key business operations into the cloud. Once complete, the project will modernize the company's core applications for sales, human resources, finance, billing, professional services and other key business operations. The Seattle-headquartered company recognized that to achieve its ambitious goal, it needed a strategic approach for integrating its applications and data — especially to keep pace with its high-speed growth. In essence, Slalom required both agility and speed. And lots of it. To meet these demands, Slalom turned to Boomi. Playing Catch Up With Integration Founded in 2001, Slalom is a purpose-driven consulting firm that helps companies solve business problems and build for the future. It runs 23 offices in the United States, as well as locations in London and Toronto. Its workforce has grown more than 13-fold in just a decade, and in 2017 Slalom crossed $1 billion in revenue while supporting more than 1,000 clients. "With all the phenomenal growth, you've got a lot more systems that have to come online and a lot of things happening at a furious pace," says Michael "Ski" Cierkowski, Slalom's director of architecture and emerging technologies. "Our previous integration tools weren't sufficient." Customer Profile CASE STUDY – PROFESSIONAL SERVICES Market: Professional Services Headquarters: Seattle, WA Founded: 2001 Customers: 1,059 Employees: 4,800 Business Goals: Prepare the company for continued rapid growth by driving digital transformation with modern, best-of- breed cloud applications. Integration Challenges: Years of hyper growth created a disparate mix of integration tools and techniques that required manual coding to maintain. The system provided poor visibility into interconnections among applications and data sets. How Boomi Helped: Boomi provided a pure cloud, unified platform for enterprise-class integration with outstanding ease of use, flexibility and scale. The Boomi platform is managing eight integrations between cloud and on- premise applications, with more planned. Results: • Reduced integration time from 2 months to 1.5 weeks • Delivered flexibility and speed for enterprise transformation • Provided transparency into all integration processes • Accelerated business processes with more timely data Slalom Speeds Enterprise Transformation and Drives Growth With Boomi Integration Slalom, a rapidly expanding consulting firm, has placed Dell Boomi at the center of its ambitious enterprise transformation initiative. Boomi is helping the $1 billion company modernize its application portfolio and build a connected business amid rapid growth.
