SBM Management Services

A premier facilities service provider rapidly deploys Boomi to fuel analytics on AWS, empower the business with information, and reduce employee onboarding overhead by 30 percent. It’s part of cloud-first digital transformation that’s improving business agility.

Business Goals

Facilities service provider SBM Management Services helps Fortune 500 clients in five nations run seamless operations with a range of services and tools. Yet seamless operations were missing in SBM’s own IT environment.

Outdated legacy systems inhibited business and IT agility and scalability. To modernize for the digital age, the 8,000-person company launched a cloud-first transformation of its IT landscape. Top priorities were scalable integration across cloud and on-premises systems, and new ways to capitalize on data for greater insights and scalability.

Integration Challenges

SBM wanted to solve a “data nightmare” created by use of ad hoc integration tools, improve data governance and quality, and streamline employee onboarding. SBM also needed integration to support analytics as it built a data lake on Amazon S3, and migrated a data warehouse to new systems on Amazon RDS and Amazon Redshift.

SBM engaged OSI Digital, a Boomi Elite Partner with more than 50 Boomi experts, and selected Boomi’s cloud-native platform for its flexibility and scale in enterprise-caliber integration.

How Boomi Helped

SBM fast-tracked its project with the Boomi Molecule Quick Start on AWS, deploying Boomi on AWS in just two hours — rather than four weeks otherwise needed. That gives SBM high availability, load balancing, and security across multiple use cases.

SBM uses Boomi to move data into the Amazon S3 data lake and move data into Amazon Redshift for analytics every 15 minutes. In addition, Boomi connects JD Edwards ERP with other systems to improve job scheduling and tracking, and streamline employee onboarding.

Results

SBM is transforming itself into a faster, more agile, and more scalable organization with Boomi as its go-to integration platform. With Boomi, SBM has “guardrails” to strengthen data governance and quality, and empower business users as data stewards with clear data ownership.

With 30 Boomi integrations in place and more to follow, SBM:

  • Cut employee onboarding time from days to minutes
  • Reduced onboarding operational overhead by 30%
  • Accelerated integration development 2X to 3X
  • Derives business insights through analytics on AWS
