July 26, 2016 — Cupertino, CA — Workato, a leading enterprise-class cloud integration and automation platform, today announced that it has been named a leader in Forrester Research’s July 2016 report, The Forrester Wave™ iPaaS for Dynamic Integration, Q3 2016. Workato received the top scores in the platform characteristics and cost criteria, and among the highest scores in the revenue growth criteria.
The report helps enterprise architecture professionals make the right choice for dynamic integration, connecting systems-of-engagement to systems-of-records. Forrester considered eight software vendors across 32 evaluation criteria.
According to the report, Workato “delivers a powerful self-service application integration product with the goal of simplifying integration for both cloud and on-premises applications.” It also mentions “This product fits small and large companies that may or may not have all the skills necessary to administer integration operations.”
This announcement follows recognition for Workato by independent research firm, Gartner Research, as a Gartner 2016 Cool Vendor, and The Channel Company’s as a 2016 Emerging Vendor in CRN.
“I believe that being recognized as a leader in the Forrester Wave for Dynamic iPaaS 2016 report is a great validation of our powerful platform to help businesses of all sizes - from Fortune 500 to SMBs - automate and simplify their business processes,” said Vijay Tella, CEO of Workato. “Unlike other platforms, we see the majority of our customers go live with their custom integrations within just 3 days, and at fraction of the cost.”
The Workato platform received the top score in the Platform Characteristics criteria. Workato’s platform characteristics include:
- Time machine: the ability to automatically sync data across apps historically, in real-time, and have long running tasks that wait for an event or a time in future.
- The ability to be super adaptable to app customizations to support the varied needs of businesses
- Advanced business rules: enabling businesses to automate even the most complicated business processes without any coding
- Version Hub: a powerful versioning capability for all its automation recipes
- Aegis Console: the ability for IT to manage and administer all the integrations in an enterprise
- Support for hybrid integration to automate workflows across cloud and on-premise applications
“At Verified First, we work with a large volume of client data that is stored in Salesforce. We wanted to connect Salesforce and QuickBooks, not only to automate historical data consisting of more than 20,000 invoices and thousands of clients, but also for all future clients and invoices. It was imperative for our integration tool to be able to handle that volume of data and keep up with our growth,” explained Ryan Hart, director of Marketing for Verified First. “Workato’s platform rose to the challenge, completely streamlining the invoicing process, providing stronger insights, and eliminating manual data entry for accounts receivable.”
