Read more about our work with Moderna + Boomi.

Context/Problem/Pain Points:
At the founding of Moderna, Chief Digital Officer Marcello Damiani defined the six pillars of the digital drug company, one of which was comprehensive integration. To implement this, Moderna chose the Boomi integration platform and Kitepipe as the service provider and initiated a five year build out of integration to support the cloud first architecture. Starting first with procurement, then with onboarding, and finally manufacturing, Kitepipe built and support more than 200 transaction and master data integration pipes that support all aspects of Moderna’s daily activity.

Solution Approach

Process and Project Approach:
Using a combination of longer term roadmaps and shorter term targets of opportunity, Moderna and Kitepipe quickly built and gradually refined a comprehensive set of business integrations.

Technical Solution:
The solution includes several Boomi master data hubs, coupled with both hub and spoke and point to point integrations. Running in AWS the Boomi test and prod molecules are able to handle significant batch and transaction load.

Outcome and Results:
When the pandemic hit and Moderna needed to scale all aspects of the organization a powerful set of onboarding integrations was in place to quickly add the many hundreds of new employees and contractors needed to develop and deliver the Moderna Covid-19 vaccine.

Values and Success

It was a true partnership with both sides communicating and benefiting.

Kitepipe was available and at the ready when the pandemic hit and Moderna needed extra support.

The Kitepipe team was tightly integrated into Moderna’s business and IT operations and was able to shift weekly to the most important areas and needs.

“Moderna’s five-year relationship with Kitepipe insured that our Boomi integration processes and overall data integrity were ready for the shocks and hypergrowth we experienced while working on a vaccine to help address the pandemic. Solid data integration supported our need to achieve many years of growth in a single year. Kitepipe's Boomi experts helped make us integration superheroes.”
