Boomi launches framework to empower businesses with data management

Boomi, a Dell Technologies business, has launched Boomi Blueprint, a framework for data management including proven best practices for faster return on investment (ROI).

It builds on Boomi’s Integration Centre of Excellence (ICoE) service, which was launched in February of this year.

The framework includes business and leadership guidance, design practices and implementation practices, all of which focus on increasing efficiency in different ways and therefore lowering implementation costs and total cost of ownership.

Essentially, the framework is designed to provide greater flexibility, agility for data integration strategy and implementation to aid in digital transformation, and is said to be a direct response to more businesses looking to invest in digital initiatives.

For business guidance, Boomi Blueprint services provide information around proven practices. This set of best practices provides companies with the ability to respond to disruptive forces and adapt their digital platform towards desired business vision and outcomes, Boomi states.

Leadership guidance encompasses platform strategy service (integration, data, or both) and helps customers define their digital ambition, assess the current state and define the target state digital platform roadmap focused on people, process, and technology.

In addition, leadership guidance provides the Digital Ideation Lab, a Boomi innovation pop-up lab where digital specialists will explore technologies, develop prototypes, and create reference architectures for rapid business deployment.

Design practices include platform architecture and platform assurance. With platform architecture, Boomi aims to ensure that your organisation receives the appropriate architecture and process guidance at critical stages of your integration platform as a service (iPaaS) implementation.

Platform assurance is for existing customers and partners to ensure their existing implementation aligns with target state, roadmaps and standards, to match their digital ambition.

Finally implementation practices recognises that every organisation starts at a different point in the integration modernisation journey and has unique strengths, opportunities, and constraints which need to be understood and factored into a modernised program.

As a result, Boomi architects help enterprises build, manage, and grow an ICoE tailored for a more collaborative, community oriented, and innovative digital enterprise enabling modernisation.

Boomi Blueprint framework best practices aligns with Lean Portfolio Management, Scaled Agile and DevOps. Boomi managing director A/NZ Nicholas Lambrou says, “Organisations across A/NZ are showing a burning need to transform, and many are turning to ‘low-code’ technology to enable and expedite that process.

“The Boomi Blueprint Framework will support partners and customers to make more intelligent decisions surrounding transformation, adding value to existing and helping pursue new opportunities for their businesses.

“With 48% of Australian enterprises and 35% of their New Zealand counterparts planning to leverage iPaas technology in the next 12 months, Boomi’s new service will be a valuable addition to the region.”

Boomi chief operating officer Chris Port says, “Disruption is the new normal and responding smartly to it requires a flexible foundation of technologies and best practices to respond rapidly.

“Boomi Blueprint packages our years of best practices to help customers implement their digital platform in the right way, while giving them the guidance to prioritise key initiatives that will deliver the most significant improvements to the business.

"Peace of mind, faster ROI, and greater agility are all essential to thrive in this economy.”

The Boomi Blueprint framework and its reference architecture is publicly available through Boomiverse, Boomi’s user community.
