Taleo Business Edition to Embed Boomi's Cloud Integration Technology

On-Demand Talent Management Company Expands Relationship With Boomi for Embedded Application Integration, Customer Data Migration and Internal Systems Integration

BERWYN, PA--(Marketwire - December 1, 2009) - Boomi, the market and technology leader for on-demand integration, today announced it has expanded and deepened its relationship with Taleo, the leading provider of on-demand talent management solutions. Taleo will directly enable Boomi integration technology in its Taleo Business Edition™ applications for small and medium-sized businesses. In addition, Boomi will now support data migration for Taleo customers moving from their existing talent management systems to Taleo Business Edition.

Taleo already leverages Boomi AtomSphere, the industry's first integration platform-as-a-service, to seamlessly integrate Taleo Business Edition with its customers' SaaS or on-premise financial management, human resources and ERP applications. Existing joint customers include Siemens, Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Fund, PECI and Blackstone Group, among others. With this announcement, Taleo Business Edition will leverage Boomi's technology to embed pre-built integrations, known as Boomi Widgets, to greatly simplify integration with popular business applications, such as QuickBooks, ADP and NetSuite, and significantly accelerate the time to value for end customers.

Boomi AtomSphere is also being used to provide quick and easy data migration services for new Taleo Business Edition customers. AtomSphere will be used to transfer data from existing talent management solutions into Taleo Business Edition. For customers, this replaces time-consuming manual data migration.

"With Boomi AtomSphere, we can deliver on-demand integration in conjunction with our on-demand application platform, giving customers a simple, streamlined approach to connecting talent management with their other critical business applications," said Jason Blessing, group vice president and general manager of Taleo Business Edition. "Working with Boomi has allowed us to eliminate integration as a sales and implementation hurdle, thereby accelerating sales for us and return on investment for our customers."

"We are very pleased to be growing our relationship with Taleo, one of the industry's largest and most successful SaaS companies," said Bob Moul, president and CEO of Boomi. "I can think of no stronger endorsement for our solution than when leading SaaS providers, such as Taleo, choose Boomi for their customers' migration."
