Following last year’s sale of RSA and the recent announcement to spinoff VMware, Dell Technologies inked a deal to sell its Boomi Integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS) to private equity firms Francisco Partners and TPG for $4B. After more than ten years under Dell’s guidance, Boomi achieved tremendous growth. The objective now is for the new leadership of Boomi to ensure it delivers on the promise to produce exponential growth. As a Boomi certified implementation partner, Boomi license reseller, and industry thought leader, RJ Reliance had followed the speculation surrounding this business deal for some time, readying our experts with the necessary intelligence surrounding digital transformation for integration and automation.
While Dell continues to execute impressive strategies to solidify its long-term success, there is now an emphasis surrounding the significance connectivity has on a business’s growth trajectory. This past year’s volatility and turmoil forced businesses to effectively maneuver through a gauntlet of indefinites, magnifying the importance of resilience and adaptability because, ready or not, change is a constant. RJ Reliance recognizes whether anticipated, unexpected, good, or bad, change is a catalyst for growth; resisting change stunts growth, and without growth, there is no resilience to adversity. For a business to solidify resilience with realized growth, immediate focus must be placed on the connectivity between its people, processes, and technology. Boomi secures the connectivity your business requires for long-term resilience and growth potential. As stated by Nehal Raj, Partner at TPG, “Software is eating the world. The average enterprise has 350 applications, and today, less than 30% of them actually talk to each other.” With a renewed importance on core competencies, Dell is reorganizing its priorities and fully understands the significance of the purposeful changes being executed as it relinquishes control of Boomi, intentionally ensuring its overall success.
In retrospect, Dell’s sale of Boomi is logical. There are significant fundamental differences in the core competencies between Dell’s computer hardware and an integration platform such as Boomi- coupled with the fact that Dell has accumulated a considerable amount of debt through numerous other business dealings. While Dell and Boomi are charting their respective future courses, both are preparing to mitigate any fallout from this change. Dell has indicated its plans to allocate the funds from the sale of Boomi to reduce its debt, and Francisco Partners and TPG intend to cultivate and accelerate Boomi’s next phase of growth. RJ Reliance will continue building world-class integration solutions for our clients utilizing Boomi’s robust technologies and eagerly anticipate the evolution that Boomi will experience during this new phase of transformative growth. Overall, this sale is seemingly as perfect for Boomi as it is for Dell. Rest assured, this deal is being done right for all parties involved, positioning Boomi to transcend expectations. Now is the time to reach out and discuss the numerous ways RJ Reliance’s integration services will allow your business to flourish!

Bringing employees back into the office following the lockdowns has proven to be an intimidating task for executives. Every employee has different levels of comfort regarding being around others during the ongoing pandemic, and individual circumstances can put some employees at higher risk than others. As cities, universities, and sporting events loosen restrictions on capacities and masking requirements; companies are faced with a tough challenge -- how do we bring back our employees, especially those who still have lingering worry about the pandemic?
Most companies have shown a desire to get back to work in person again. For instance, a recent survey done by Deloitte found that at least 89% of organizations plan to return to the workplace sometime in 2021. However, in another study done by Envoy of 1,000 workers in the U.S., 66% of respondents had concerns about going back. This shows an evident disconnect between the average employee and the decision-making executives regarding the future. Executives need their employees to feel as comfortable returning to work as they feel themselves, and technology can be of great help in closing this gap.

The data gathered through employee surveys and using health guidelines can be used to generate visuals that help management better understand their employees’ desires and make informed decisions.

The hiring process can be time-consuming, overwhelming, and costly. According to a study recently conducted by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), the average cost-per-hire is $4,129, while the average time it takes to fill a given position is 42 days. What’s worse? A bad hire. In a Harris Interactive Poll, 41% of respondents noted that the cost of a bad hire was over $25,000, and 25% of respondents said the cost was over $50,000. Besides the financial costs, a bad hire leads to a decrease in productivity in the company, a decrease in company morale, hurts client solutions, and leads to lost time to recruit other candidates.
To help decrease the likelihood of a bad hire and minimize the hiring costs, many companies have begun to turn to data and technology to improve their hiring practices. In a study done by LinkedIn, they reported that 35% of talent professionals and hiring managers say that Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the top trend impacting how they hire. Furthermore, recruiters using AI found it to be most helpful with sourcing candidates (58%), screening candidates (56%), and nurturing candidates (55%).
This type of recruiting automation is a category of technology that lets companies automate recruiting tasks and workflows to reduce cost-per-hire, increase recruiter’s productivity, and accelerate the time to fill each position. This technology allows HR leaders to hand off some of their tedious tasks to the automated processes, giving them time to focus on the human-centric aspects of recruiting. Not only is this saving employees time, but it is saving companies money.
RJ Reliance is here to help do just this with our integrated cloud solution, Virtual Practitioner (VP), which supports recruiting management. Virtual Practitioner can assist and automate many recruiting process steps, including comparing new hire requisitions against approved positions and budgets. This ensures that the information is accurate in terms of the organizational needs of the company and the position details, helping attract the right people who are qualified for the position.
Virtual Practitioner is also able to take care of scheduling interviews. While this may seem like a small task, in a study conducted by Yello, 67% of respondents said it takes between 30 minutes and 2 hours to schedule a single interview. Furthermore, 60% of recruiters said they regularly lose candidates before they’re able to schedule an interview. With many interviews every year, the time commitment, cost of scheduling, and potentially lost talent adds up. The Virtual Practitioner eliminates this, while also giving notifications of new schedules and helping with improving the overall process.
Finally, Virtual Practitioner can manage contract employee workflow needs. From emailing out contracts and creating reminders for others to review; to working through the approval process, the creation and execution of contracts can be extremely time-consuming. Virtual Practitioner can reduce the contract approval cycle by eliminating bottlenecks while ensuring accountability.
RJ Reliance is determined to simplify and streamline the hiring process. Reduce the amount of time your employees spend on tedious, repetitive hiring tasks by investing in an automated future.
