▪ Lack of business alignment and organisational agility means only 16% of digital transformation programmes are successful
▪ BearingPoint’s Dublin-based consulting team will help enterprise clients connect disparate platforms and systems using MuleSoft’s Anypoint Platform™
Dublin, 10th December 2018 — European management and technology consultancy BearingPoint has partnered with San Francisco-based company MuleSoft, provider of the leading platform for building application networks, in a bid to accelerate Irish businesses’ digital transformation.
The new partnership comes at a time when businesses continue to struggle with digital transformation. A lack of business alignment, organisational enablement and general agility in realising the value of digital transformation all contribute to programme failure — indeed, only 16% of corporate digital transformation programmes are successful.*
MuleSoft’s Anypoint Platform™ enables organisations to realise the vision for digital transformation with the power of API-led connectivity and fundamentally increase their speed of change and innovation through application networks. BearingPoint, in partnering with MuleSoft, believes that in a complicated digital transformation market, technology tools that allow enterprises to unlock their data and connect disparate parts of their business in a standardised, consumable way are the keys to a productive and straightforward transition.
MuleSoft’s Anypoint Platform™ enables organisations to better connect enterprise applications, data and devices across cloud and on-premises systems. Ultimately, this will help businesses open up new revenue channels, improve customer experiences, and drive innovation.
MuleSoft’s Anypoint Platform™ has helped businesses in diverse sectors deliver impressive results at scale: a major UK bank delivered one of the first fully automated mortgage processing services; a European electronics retailer redeveloped their in-store customer experience with a digital sales program; and a large local authority built a ‘one-stop shop’ for citizen services, which resulted in a 97% user satisfaction rating. In its partnership role, Dublin-based BearingPoint will provide advisory and implementation consulting services to clients in the financial services, commercial and public sectors, from initial strategy to design and execution of the digital transformation process using MuleSoft.
“Digital transformation is a broad, all-encompassing concept,” said Gary Mullane, Director at BearingPoint Ireland. “For larger organisations, realising a successful digital transformation across potentially hundreds or thousands of applications, legacy platforms and third-party devices is a daunting task. How does a business unlock the full potential of its data and deliver a real-time, single view of the customer? Even though we have more ways to analyse information, and automate and manage IT infrastructure, this task seems more complex, not less.
Every organisation has different needs, and that’s why it’s important to have a solution to enable digital transformation that is both flexible and customisable. MuleSoft’s Anypoint Platform™ allows businesses to easily connect and sync their applications, devices and data on on-premises computer systems and in the cloud.
Gary Mullane, Director at BearingPoint Ireland
“Being able to connect siloed-off platforms and data sets to a fully joined-up network ecosystem is a powerful and compelling proposition. With Anypoint Platform™, our customers can simultaneously reduce their time to market, make smarter, faster decisions, exceed customer expectations, and increase operational efficiency. We are excited to be able to create these new opportunities for success for our clients and guide them along their digital transformation journey. BearingPoint Ireland is proud of its achievement in becoming a MuleSoft partner.”
Brent Hayward, Senior Vice President of Global Channels and Alliances at MuleSoft, said: “With the explosion of disparate technologies today, connecting them all quickly and efficiently is the key to gaining a competitive edge. Through its partnership with MuleSoft, BearingPoint is enabling its customers to create a dynamic application network to achieve their goals and accelerate their pace of business. We’re pleased to welcome BearingPoint into MuleSoft’s partner ecosystem and look forward to working together to deliver significant business impact to our mutual customers.”
