IntegrationWorks and Dell Boomi webinar, 23rd May 2017

How to make integration easy, fast and scalable

Integration has traditionally been difficult and time-consuming. Point-to-point coding and on-premise middleware are costly, complex and lack flexibility for fast-changing business needs. But Dell Boomi is changing that with its revolutionary cloud-native Integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS). As a top Boomi partner, IntegrationWorks is delivering Boomi technology to customers in Australia and New Zealand to make integration far easier and faster than conventional methods.

In this second post of a three-part blog series, we take a look how Boomi provides unmatched ease, speed and scale of integration. However, for an overview of what Boomi and IntegrationWorks offer for organisations in Australia and New Zealand check out our first blog post or sign up for our upcoming webinar on cloud integration with Boomi on Tuesday, May 23 webinar.

To recap, the IntegrationWorks team and Dell Boomi have been working behind the scenes to help local customers take advantage of Boomi’s multi-purpose iPaaS for data and application integration, Master Data Management (MDM) and API Management. Boomi pioneered the iPaaS market in 2007, and today ranks atop iPaaS evaluations by Gartner, Forrester, Ovum and G2 Crowd.

IntegrationWorks is a globally recognised middleware services solution partner, allowing customers to access expert integration services built around brilliant technology. We recommend a Boomi-based integration solution for the following reasons:

  • 100% free to start
  • You can get started in minutes with no commitment
  • No contracts required
  • No implementation fees
  • No tooling to install
  • It's all web browser-based

And you don’t have to deal with separate tools for different types of integration that Boomi offers, namely data and application integration, MDM and API Management. All functionality is packaged in a “single pane of glass” browser environment. Even if you choose to install the Boomi runtime engine on a local server, the web browser tooling is identical.

Let’s drill down into some additional reasons why Boomi is the integration solution of choice for more than 5,300 organisations around the world:

Lots of connectors and ability to custom-build your connector. Any integration solution, whether on-demand or on-premise, requires a large number of connectors to integrate various applications and infrastructure. Boomi has a very large inventory of connectors that range from file systems to enterprise applications like SAP or Salesforce.

Furthermore, for customers with purpose-built applications, the team at IntegrationWorks can access and utilise the Boomi Open Connector API to develop custom-made connectors. That means even your most disparate and custom applications can become part of the integration ecosystem.  

It scales for your company's needs and growth. Boomi offers a range of editions that let your company expand capabilities as you grow. Advanced capabilities for parallel processing, high availability, load balancing and fault tolerance are available for more demanding enterprise workloads. Many of the on-premise data integration technologies in the market have yet achieve this degree of enterprise-class scalability.

Boomi also provides flexibility for where integration processes execute. Customers can deploy the Boomi runtime engine, called an Atom, in the Boomi cloud, in a private or public cloud, or on a local server for organizations that wish to keep information behind their firewall. Or, you can cluster multiple Atoms into a Boomi Molecule to run across multiple servers for mission-critical integration processes.

A proven, single instance multi-tenant infrastructure. Dell Boomi’s platform is architected to ensure high availability and performance with no single point of failure. The decentralised nature of the AtomSphere in the cloud means that all customers can trust their integration environment isn't going to fall down in peak loads or when new digital channels come online.

For instance, in April 2017 Boomi handled more than 527 million processes, as shown at trust.boomi.com, which provides live and historical data on system performance. The brilliance of this is the transparency of service lines, too. Instead of escalating any issues with an on-premise integration vendor, Boomi lets you go online and watch live status updates and access a community of users who are experts on the system. 

With 10+ years of iPaaS experience, Boomi has changed the integration industry. This change is now driving customers around the globe to re-assess their approach to integration. They’re questioning whether their existing platforms are now legacy, and if cloud-native integration offers faster, easier and less costly option.

To be able to understand that change with greater clarity, our integration strategists and consultants are here to guide you through the options, offerings, and questions above to get your business and teams ready to take advantage of citizen integration with iPaaS.

As well as being awesome, Boomi also makes it easy to get to expert agility. But we'll discuss that in our next blog post.
