MetaMatrix Joins Siebel Alliance Program as CRM OnDemand Software Partner
Boston (ots/PRNewswire) -
- MetaMatrix extends Siebel CRM OnDemand with real-time access to company information across disparate systems
MetaMatrix, the leader in Enterprise Information Integration (EII), today announced the signing of an alliance partnership with Siebel Systems Inc., a leading provider of customer facing solutions. Under the terms of the agreement, MetaMatrix will join the Siebel Alliance Program as a CRM OnDemand Software Partner.
With the announcement of the partnership, MetaMatrix provides Siebel CRM OnDemand customers with a unique ability to integrate on-premise operational, analytic and business performance data with Siebel's market leading CRM OnDemand platform without the need to engage in large, expensive integration projects. In addition, Siebel CRM OnDemand customers now have an ability to identify and unleash silo-ed, corporate information by leveraging MetaMatrix's comprehensive metadata management capabilities.
Siebel customers value the simplicity and ROI achieved with the Siebel CRM OnDemand platform. However, as the market moves aggressively towards business performance management (BPM), Siebel CRM OnDemand customers seek to combine hosted sales and customer information with operational data stored in on-premise corporate databases including inventory, order, budgeting and forecasting data. Utilizing the sophisticated capabilities provided by MetaMatrix's industry leading EII platform, Siebel CRM OnDemand customers can access this data seamlessly regardless of the where and how the data is stored. MetaMatrix provides Siebel CRM OnDemand customers with the ability to complement their CRM implementations with access to real-time information stored in disparate databases including data warehouses/marts, packaged applications, mainframe legacy systems, document repositories and XML files. The combination of the companies' solutions provides an unsurpassed hosted CRM solution.
"We are extremely excited about this partnership with Siebel Systems, the world leader in hosted/on premise CRM solutions," said Joe Chappell, CEO of MetaMatrix. "Through this partnership, companies can now achieve a holistic and integrated view of their business by combining customer and sales information with key operational data and metrics, achieving new levels of business performance without the need for large scale integration projects."
"CRM OnDemand customers have requirements to leverage the data stored in disparate, on-premise systems," said Catherine Cherubino, Vice President, Channels and Alliances, OnDemand and SMB. "MetaMatrix's platform for EII is a viable solution for our joint customers to provide seamless co-existence of customer legacy and other operational data."
