Bullhorn Streamlines Application Delivery and Deployment in the Cloud with CloudBees Java Platform

The CloudBees Platform as a Service Enables Bullhorn to Streamline the Develop-to-Deploy Process and Deliver Customized Applications More Quickly to Bullhorn Customers

JBOSS WORLD, BOSTON, MA. – June 28, 2012 – CloudBees, Inc. , the Java Platform as a Service (PaaS) innovation leader, today announced that Bullhorn ® , the global leader in web-based software for staffing and recruiting agencies, has selected the CloudBees Platform to accelerate their customized application development. Bullhorn serves over 100,000 users in 126 countries. The CloudBees Platform allows Bullhorn to accelerate its develop-to-deploy process for Java web applications—eliminating the time and resources typically required for deploying applications in the cloud.

“The ROI we've experienced since we began working with CloudBees has been phenomenal. The CloudBees Platform has enabled us to scale dramatically, as it frees up our developers to do what they do best—build applications to meet customer needs,” said Matthew Fischer, VP of Engineering, Bullhorn. “We’re committed to providing a high level of service to Bullhorn customers; utilizing the CloudBees Platform we are consistently meeting or exceeding our customers’ expectations.”

Since utilizing the CloudBees Platform, Bullhorn has delivered 60 customized, cloud-based applications. CloudBees allows Bullhorn’s development team to focus on satisfying the specific needs of their customers, rather than allocating valuable time and resources to solving infrastructure maintenance issues that often come with cloud deployments. To date, the CloudBees Platform has already resulted in significant benefits for Bullhorn’s organization, including:

  • An 80% reduction in time spent resolving infrastructure issues;

  • Ability to use one platform to support the complete application lifecycle, from development through to deployment, in the cloud;

  • Amplified focus on customer satisfaction – not maintenance;

  • Scalability of applications to meet demanding needs of Bullhorn customers; and,

  • Support from CloudBees technical experts to resolve any integration issues that arise.

Other value Bullhorn has realized from streamlining application development and cloud deployment using the CloudBees Platform include:

  • AnyCloudTM deployment to dedicated servers and the ability for AnyCloud to balance application resources across them;

  • Abstracting developers from infrastructure complexities and eliminating the need for another operations team to monitor infrastructure; and,

  • Session clustering and seamless DNS records for all applications.

“Bullhorn is the type of customer we covet – a cutting-edge business understanding the significant cost and operational efficiencies which can be gained from deployment in the cloud,” said Sacha Labourey, CEO and founder, CloudBees. “Today, Java developers spend far too much time on tasks that are completely outside of their workflow. Bullhorn’s services team can now concentrate on delivering quality customer applications, rather than being bogged down in issues that ordinarily plague application deployments.”
