Scribe Software Introduces Integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS) Functionality and Wholesale Pricing for Scribe Online
MANCHESTER, N.H. - July 14, 2014 - Data integration company Scribe Software today announced details of its Fall iPaaS release and a first-of-its-kind wholesale pricing program for channel partners. The offerings are designed to empower ISVs, implementation partners and IT developers to easily embed and distribute integration services tailored for their business.
"The iPaaS market is expanding like wildfire - and what's hot always tends to focus first on the Enterprise. Integration as a service is equally important for the mid-market, which needs advanced, channel-friendly integration options to make the integrated cloud a reality," noted Holger Mueller, VP & Principal Analyst, Constellation Research.
Scribe's iPaaS release and wholesale pricing mitigates the risk for partners associated with SaaS integration. Scribe partners can quickly execute projects within set timeframes, achieve more with a given allocation of resources, and deliver end results less expensively.
"We have grown our partner channel significantly in the last 12 months - with more than 110 of our global partners delivering cloud and hybrid integration solutions with Scribe Online," said Lou Guercia, CEO of Scribe. "Working closely with our partners, we know they're adapting their delivery models from one-off professional services projects to repeatable cloud solutions. We've made it easy and affordable for them to deliver SaaS integration that leverages their application and industry expertise."
Scribe's recent Spring release includes enhancements to expose integrations as REST APIs and other real-time data processing capabilities. Today, partners and customers can embed integration as a web service within their own offerings for tailored integration experiences. Scribe will debut a full suite of platform APIs for end-to-end integration provisioning and processing, as well as a redesigned global marketplace within Scribe Online to give partners a new promotion and distribution vehicle. Key provisioning API capabilities will include the ability to: create organization(s); invite users and provision agents; create connections and solutions; import maps; and more.
"End users simply want to see the data they need to make better decisions within the applications they use everyday - they don't care where it is stored or how they get it," said Dave Burlington, Partner at Armanino. "Scribe's integration platform gives us an effective way to make those connections seamlessly between end users' business applications and data sources, no matter where they are located."
Scribe's new wholesale pricing gives partners and ISVs a flexible and predictable way to offer integration as part of their cloud offering or industry solution. Partners can buy integration in bulk from Scribe and price, package or bundle the integration services that best match their business model. This service provider program will allow partners to deliver business value more quickly and profitably than current iPaaS providers.
Partners already leveraging the wholesale pricing include Armanino, Beringer Associates, Cegedim, ON24 and Silverpop, and the feedback to date has been resoundingly positive. Adam Spurr, VP Global Sales and Marketing for Zero2Ten, Microsoft's 2014 Dynamics Cloud Partner of the Year Award Winner, notes, "It's easy to see how Scribe's cloud integration platform, Scribe Online, can enable Zero2Ten and other solution providers to deliver pre-package integrated solutions to their customers."
"We want to give mid-market customers and partners the integration capabilities and pricing flexibility they need to be more successful," continued Guercia. " We don't plan to stop here. As an iPaaS service provider, we want most of the connector and solution innovation to come from partners and IT developers. As such, we need to reduce all barriers to adoption and be open so anyone can build dynamic integration via any user interface or programming environment."
