Case Study: HIGHER EDUCATION | CORNELL UNIVERSITY Mapping out a transition to a cloud-first model for business and IT, Cornell University's information technologies team faced a significant obstacle. The Ivy League school's on-premise integration middleware was complex, time-consuming, costly and incompatible with the array of cloud applications in Cornell's pipeline. The Cornell Information Technologies (CIT) group estimated that it would take months to build a single integration with an existing Oracle Fusion middleware system. This approach would also increase troubleshooting and maintenance costs. Shortcomings in stability, runtime speed, reusability and visibility into the status of integrations contributed to CIT's decision to modernize its integration environment. To do that, the Cornell IT team turned to Dell Boomi. Cornell CIT determined that the university would benefit from a faster, more agile cloud-native platform to scale integration across Cornell's nearly 10,000 employees, 23,000 students and 15 colleges and schools in the United States, Europe and the Middle East. The Boomi cloud- native integration platform has proved has proved to be a good fit to address Cornell's integration needs. Bringing Together Cloud and On-Premise Applications Starting with an integration involving a Workday cloud human resources application in 2013, Cornell's IT team today leverages Boomi for 37 integrations across a hybrid environment of best-of-breed cloud and legacy on- premise applications. The Boomi integration platform as a service (iPaaS) has provided flexibility to swiftly build a connected campus. CASE STUDY – HIGHER EDUCATION Market: Higher Education Headquarters: Ithaca, N.Y. Founded: 1865 Students: 23,000 Employees: 9,950 Business Goals: Swiftly and easily connect best-of-breed cloud apps and legacy systems to modernize administrative, academic and IT functions. Integration Challenges: Legacy integration middleware was costly, complex and impossible to scale across a diverse hybrid IT environment. How Boomi Helped: Cornell's IT division has cut months from integration development cycles with Boomi's agile, cloud-native platform, now powering 37 integrations. How Boomi Helped: • Integrations developed in one-quarter the time previously needed • Integration runtime speed improved up to 4x • Easy monitoring and maintenance for two- person team • Scalability to rapidly expand to 37 integrations • A more modern and connected digital campus Cornell University's IT Team Builds the Connected Campus with Dell Boomi Cornell's Information Technologies group leverages Boomi to accelerate its transformation into a cloud-first connected campus, building integrations in a quarter of the time needed with legacy middleware
