Vic Herring, VP, Head of Global Software Center, Americas at FujitsuStarted in 2007, RunMyProcess set out to change the way enterprise IT worked. By using the power of cloud and the openness of the Web, they created a platform to help enterprises successfully connect their increasingly siloed digital assets and resources. This solution proved to be so effective that in 2013 the company was acquired by Japanese multinational technology mammoth, Fujitsu.
“Initially we considered RunMyProcess as a potential partner whose platform could help us deal with the challenges of a hyper-connected world. But as we realized the importance of their technology and its compatibility with our vision we quickly changed direction and purchased them,” says Vic Herring, VP, Head of Global Software Center, Americas at Fujitsu. “Over the past few years, we have carefully integrated them into our digital portfolio.”
RunMyProcess offers a fast but evolutionary approach to digital transformation, helping organizations balance the need to move quickly with the need to maintain connections to their existing systems and processes. It allows the rapid creation of smart, process-based applications that connect on-premise systems, cloud services, and smart devices, enabling information to automatically flow across the whole digital ecosystem. Whether it is Oracle, Office 365, mobile users, or devices from the Internet of Things (IoT), RunMyProcess enables organizations to quickly build connected applications that are accessible from both desktop and mobile devices.
“In a digital age it is very difficult to build a one-size-fits-all application – differentiation relies on your ability to connect resources and provide highly tailored digital experiences to anyone, anywhere. To enable this we tie resources together in common and automated process flows. The end-user doesn’t know they are interfacing with an ERP system, a CRM system, a shipping system, and a purchase order system. All they know is they are performing a task – the magic happens behind the scenes. At RunMyProcess, we call this the last mile of digital transformation. It really unlocks the power of the siloed applications customers have in their data centers,” explains Herring.

By using the company’s growing library of integration connectors, even data from end-of-life legacy systems, such as IBM Lotus Notes, can be channeled into fast and nimble cloud-based workflows.
Built from inception as a multi-tenant cloud platform, users can access RunMyProcess’ powerful technology as a pay-as-you-go service, delivering its benefits at a fraction of the cost of an on-premises solution.
Herring cites a case where a customer was able to automate an activity so that only one employee was tied up instead of fourteen. “By connecting and automating workflows from end-to-end you eliminate a lot of wasted time and errors, so it helps the customer ensure people are working on important things – like serving customers or delivering innovation,” notes Herring.
RunMyProcess’ native cloud-based architecture and Fujitsu’s deep relationships with companies such as Oracle and Microsoft help them stay ahead of the competition. “We have a very deep bench and an unrivalled breadth of application expertise compared to our competition,” he adds. “I started life as a Marine, so I like to look at our team as a Marine Corps unit that goes in and accomplishes a mission very quickly and completely. Our tag line at RunMyProcess - ‘digital problem solvers’ – reflects this obsession with speed and pragmatism. I think this commitment, combined with Japanese quality, is why our customers respect and like doing business with us.”
