Partnership to deliver pre-built ‘Snap’ Connectors, allowing SumTotal customers to incorporate SumTotal’s Learn and Talent Management Applications with 150 third-party business applications
Gainesville, Fla.– September 17, 2013 – SumTotal® Systems, LLC, the largest independent provider of integrated HR solutions, today announced that they have partnered with SnapLogic, the Elastic Integration™ company, to extend the SumTotal elixHR platform by delivering the industry’s first HR Connector Framework populated with SnapLogic’s extensive library of pre-built connectors. The SumTotal elixHR Connector Framework will provide immediate access to over 150 business applications, on-premises, in the cloud or both, and will help expedite customers’ talent expansion initiatives by allowing them to deliver and exchange learning, talent and HR data across multiple business applications and systems, in real time.
“We are excited to partner with SumTotal to make our extensive library of high-performing connectors available to SumTotal customers,” said SnapLogic CEO Gaurav Dhillon. “SnapLogic’s modern web- standards-based “containerized” Snaps fit very well with SumTotal’s industry-leading elixHR platform. Pervasive access to integrated data allows SumTotal customers to implement a virtual employee record across all business systems and helps organizations extract greater value from their existing technology investments.”
By providing pre-built, out-of-the-box connectors to popular business applications like Salesforce, Oracle, PeopleSoft, SAP and Workday, the SumTotal elixHR Connector Framework gives customers the ability to access information from third-party business applications directly within their SumTotal applications and vice versa. Customers using the elixHR Connector Framework will have access to elixHR Connector Studio, a browser-based, drag and drop visual designer and rich library of integration connectors that allows users to design and adjust integration and data flows between SumTotal solutions and the customers’ third-party systems.
“Using the SumTotal elixHR Connector Framework would allow us to seamlessly integrate the data in our SumTotal applications with Workday,” said Yee Lin Chong, head of global HRIS at Avago Technologies, a leading supplier of analog interface components for wireless, wireline and industrial applications. “By having all of this data integrated into a virtual system of record, we can more closely analyze the data and make decisions about employees and our organization as a whole. This will help us better align employees with our current business goals while also positioning our organization for the future.”
“One of the key challenges for any global company is to maintain agility, compliance and expansion across regions, divisions and with acquisitions. For both centralized and decentralized organizations, the need to integrate HR and talent information with multiple different enterprise systems, compliance rules and payroll regulations is a reality, yet until now, there has not been an easy way to achieve this,” said Hardeep Gulati, Chief Operating Officer at SumTotal Systems. “This partnership creates a unique and differentiated solution that allows customers to leverage SnapLogic’s elastic, prebuilt SNAPs with SumTotal’s industry-leading HR platform to quickly and easily enable integrations across disparate systems and deployment models. Whether enabling contextual learning in a manufacturing facility in Asia or making payroll for new sales team in Latin America, customers can immediately realize the benefits of pervasive access to HR processes and information across global systems.”
SnapLogic integration with SumTotal elixHR Connector Framework is generally available today.
