Business Goals

As Qlik mapped out a large-scale strategic migration to modern cloud applications, one weakness emerged. The company wanted a faster, more scalable way to connect its systems.

A great number of single-purpose, one-off integrations couldn’t support its strategic ambitions. And they prevented Qlik from accessing, integrating and managing data with the speed and agility it required.

Qlik needed a platform that could connect everything it had, plus what it wanted to deploy.

Integration Challenges

Custom-coding ad hoc integrations consumed too much time and too many resources. And it left the organization reliant on one or two developers.

Maintenance and changes meant that these developers had to constantly reinvent the wheel, while Qlik’s IT team lacked visibility into the health and activity of integrations.

The company’s rapid growth amplified these limitations and made enterprise-caliber integration a must. It was time for Qlik to modernize its approach.

How Boomi Helped

Boomi met Qlik’s criteria for true cloud multi-tenancy with automated product updates. Qlik appreciated the high availability possible when Boomi Atoms were clustered across multiple servers to form high-performance Boomi Molecules.

Boomi’s high-speed, low-code integration platform accelerated development while providing the flexibility to create and manage APIs. Boomi helps Qlik deliver a level of speed and agility that was not previously possible.

Results

Qlik counts on Boomi for rapid integration development and deployment, scaling use up to 20,000 processes a day and eliminating the three to six weeks previously needed to determine which integration approach suited a project. Boomi helps Qlik:

  • Handle 40 integrations across the enterprise
  • Scale to 20,000 daily process executions
  • Reduce integration build time 50 percent
  • Speed time to deployment by 5x
  • Extend API management and MDM
