Renesas

Renesas Electronics America (REA), headquartered in Santa Clara, CA is a wholly owned subsidiary of Renesas Electronics Corporation, a Japan-based semiconductor manufacturer that is the world’s largest manufacturer of microcontrollers and the second largest manufacturer of application processors.

Challenge:

REA had an on-premises, legacy integration system that required a very manual process of custom coding by an on-site expert and was costly and unnecessarily complicated. REA also had 27 racks of servers that had accumulated over time through mergers and acquisitions. They needed to find a cost-effective replacement for a legacy on-premises integration solution.

Solution:

Renases selected Dell Boomi’s iPaaS over other integration solutions. Having the ability to locate an Atom on premise made it easier to sell a cloud-based strategy to other areas of the organization. Dell Boomi AtomSphere provided a cloud-based solution at a fraction of the cost of the company’s previous legacy system, and also helped increase agility.

REA turned to Menlo Technologies for implementation. After the initial proof of concept, REA worked with Menlo to set up processes for Ultimate Software integration as the first phase during the facility migration. Since then, REA has been layering new integration as needed, including integration between Salesforce.com Chatter and Zendesk for support tickets.Menlo Technologies continues to help REA migrate data from SAP to a local Database via AtomSphere, which involves master data management processes. “Menlo was REA’s first and only partner,” said REA’s IT Director. “Their blended model of onshore and offshore support works well.”

Benefits:

  • Dramatically lowered maintenance costs
  • Reduced manual processes
  • Increased agility for planning and development
  • Accelerated time to value
  • Lowered total cost of ownership
  • Menlo’s Boomi Center of Excellence ensures that Boomi-ready resources are always available.

Dell Boomi AtomSphere is one of the best tools I’ve seen, and Menlo’s been a great partner to help us.
