Pervasive Releases CDI Infrastructure Platform to Accelerate Deployment, Increase Flexibility and Reduce Costs
AUSTIN, Texas, Feb. 20 -- Pervasive Software(R) Inc. (NASDAQ:PVSW), a global value leader in data infrastructure software, today announced the release of its new infrastructure platform for Customer Data Integration (CDI), offering the broadest and most versatile integration support for real-time CDI, including support for Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) implementations. The new release provides channel partners and their customers with a fast, low-cost way to empower customer-centric organizations by incorporating powerful data and business integration functionality and data remediation in an easy-to-use suite of products.
The breadth of traditional and SaaS connectivity -- more than 200 data and application connectors -- incorporated in Pervasive's platform underpins data integration services for any customer data model and for instant adaptability to changes in the data model. The new release includes support for salesforce.com, Siebel CRM OnDemand, SalesLogix, as well as Web services standards. Designed for rapid data profiling and information integration without the high costs of custom programming, the release provides the data infrastructure to power 360-degree views of the customer from multiple CRM and ERP systems.
"CDI solutions have to coexist in a heterogeneous world of multiple data producers and consumers. CDI solution developers need help with addressing the diverse data definitions and connectivity needs of the broader marketplace so they can avoid rigid implementations," said Chip Harmon, vice president and general manager of Pervasive's Integration Division. "Pervasive is a leader in providing comprehensive CRM connectivity in software and service bundles that are designed for flexibility in meeting the challenges of CDI. Pervasive's integration and profiling products allow both IT organizations and solution providers in the CDI space to successfully build differentiated industry-specific functionality."
Pervasive is a trusted provider of integration software for the major CRM products, and has deployed hundreds of CRM and CDI implementations. "Pervasive is an innovative solution for enabling CDI projects, and allows companies to successfully integrate key customer information from salesforce.com with back office data from SAP," said Adam Gross, vice president, developer marketing, salesforce.com. Pervasive is one of the first vendors to provide both salesforce.com AppExchange and SAP Certified integration adapters along with pre-built integration processes for common integration tasks in a ready-to-configure solution.
"With access to transactional information that resides in ERP systems, CRM users have a comprehensive view of their customers," said Bruce Cameron, senior vice president, North American sales, Pivotal Corporation. "With Pervasive, Pivotal customers now have a fast, reliable way to extend Pivotal's platform to integrate their applications and hard to reach data sources, enabling them to maximize the value of their CRM investment."
Pervasive is also one of the few companies to provide data profiling as part of its product suite. Data profiling provides an essential layer of data analysis and integrity checking, allowing companies to pinpoint customer data anomalies before they impact CDI solutions, ensuring that business users and management can make informed decisions based on correct and complete data.
Industry research has shown that the typical company uses more than 50 core lines-of-business applications, with larger enterprises having as many as 500. This diversity, in combination with constantly changing business and technical requirements, creates a need for customer-specific solutions. According to Aaron Zornes, Chief Research Officer of the CDI Institute, "90 percent of CDI implementations are still custom-coded." Using best-of-breed integration tools can significantly lower costs and increase speed to value by moving a company from a custom-coded services methodology to a specialized tools- and process-based methodology, with reusable components and mappings.
