Actian Partners with NetSuite to Enable Customers to Connect, Analyze and Take Action on Business Data

Actian Corporation (“Actian”) today announced a partnership with NetSuite (NYSE: N), the industry’s leading provider of cloud-based financials/ERP and omnichannel commerce software suites, to offer NetSuite customers the ability to seamlessly connect their business-critical NetSuite ERP data with a variety of other data sources. The Actian connector, built using NetSuite’s SuiteCloud Computing Platform, can eliminate key challenges from the data integration process, paving the way for NetSuite customers to experience faster implementation times and quicker return on investment.

In a data-dependent world, success is defined by the ability to easily connect and share information between applications. Unfortunately, many organizations still rely on brittle custom code or complex tools that are highly dependent on expensive human resources to onboard and integrate critical data sources. By increasing the number of data sources that can easily connect to NetSuite cloud business management solutions, the Actian connector enables NetSuite customers to make more accurate and timely decisions to improve key business processes like leads-to-cash, inventory, e-commerce and recurring billing.

Through this partnership with NetSuite, the Actian Analytics Platform will also be available from within the NetSuite platform, enabling customers to more quickly deploy business processes and connect to any variety and volume of data sources through a unified interface, removing friction and complexity from the data integration process. All NetSuite customers, from mid-sized organizations to large enterprises, can leverage the Actian platform, providing access and integration capabilities for enterprise data, social data and Internet of Things data, whether it resides on-premises or in the cloud.

“NetSuite customers do not want to be forced to use external tools to get the full benefits of their ERP solution. They want to quickly solve business process challenges and use analytics to create transformational changes,” said Lance Speck, Actian General Manager of Cloud and Verticals. “By making connectivity virtually invisible, we arm NetSuite customers with the ability to generate new revenue and gain new insights about their businesses and customers through the use of a combined cloud-based platform. We will give NetSuite customers a superior user experience while helping them shorten time to revenue and positioning them to drive Big Data insights in the future.”

“NetSuite has always understood that customers want the experience of an integrated suite. But providing simple, frictionless connectivity on the fly between systems can be challenging, time-consuming and expensive,” said Guido Haarmans, NetSuite Vice President Business Development for Technology Partnerships. “Actian can enable our customers to hide the complexity of this process, while also allowing them to scale from prebuilt business processes to enterprise deployments to any endpoint. With Actian, our growing customer base can harness the power of all of their data, securely and rapidly.”

The Actian Analytics Platform is an end-to-end platform that enables accelerated business impact from high-performance analytics on diverse data sources at a fraction of the cost of traditional solutions. This agreement closely aligns with the companies’ respective cloud solutions, and will give NetSuite customers the ability to leverage the entire Actian Analytics Platform.

One of NetSuite and Actian’s joint customers, Tacoma Screw, has been able to benefit from having all of their systems seamlessly integrated with the Actian solution.

“We knew we had to expand our online presence in order to grow, but we faced the daunting task of improving account creation and ordering processes to launch an ecommerce platform,” said Gary Myers, IT manager at Tacoma Screw Products. “We worked with NetSuite and Actian to automate these processes, which makes it easier for our customers to order online and provides them a better experience when they visit our physical locations. We continue to expand our store count and drive our online and in-store sales.”
