ENGIE

Dell Boomi’s integration cloud unites legacy and cloud applications, helping European energy giant ENGIE become more agile in a swiftly-changing market.

Business Goals

ENGIE is committed to creating the energy environment of the future, addressing both climate change and the changing ways in which people and organizations use energy.

ENGIE’s Enterprises & Collectives business unit focuses on helping its commercial customers become more energy efficient with new technologies and energy management practices.

ENGIE E&C needed a way to rapidly respond to business requests for new cloud applications and data dashboards, and wanted an integration platform that would support its digital transformation efforts.

Integration Challenges

ENGIE must be able to innovate and respond swiftly to changes in the market in order to achieve its goals. Digital transformation is key to ENGIE’s strategy, as without it the company would be unable to achieve the speed or agility required to implement new services for improving energy management.

The company realized that a cloud-native, low-code development environment would bring far greater speed and efficiency to its integration projects and increase its ability to quickly respond to customers.

How Boomi Helped

Dell Boomi’s flexible, scalable integration platform has tied all of ENGIE’s workflows together, eliminating barriers among siloed business applications and data across cloud and legacy systems.

All ENGIE E&C’s applications are now connected via the Boomi platform, including highly critical ones such as its SAP invoicing system, several company and partner websites, its customer databases and its Salesforce CRM, which communicates with the rest of the information systems.

With Boomi, ENGIE has end-to-end visibility for each and every business process.

Results

ENGIE’s integration projects resulted in the implementation of 250 processes, ranging from the straightforward to the highly complex — completed in eight months by a 3-person team. With Boomi, ENGIE was able to:

  • Cut costs by a factor of 10
  • Obtain end-to-end data flow visibility
  • Roll out new services significantly faster
  • Gain greater agility across IT and business operations

Thanks to the significant savings realized through Boomi, ENGIE can now invest in functional, strategic changes to its information system.

Using Boomi’s low-code integration platform reduced ENGIE’s integration costs tenfold.
