Dell Boomi expands its enterprise iPaaS portfolio

08 Nov 2018

Dell Boomi (Boomi) has announced the company’s latest additions to its integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS) for today’s enterprise. 

With its latest capabilities for The Connected Enterprise — Boomi Connect Now, Boomi Data Services for Pivotal, Boomi API Gateway and Developer Portal, Bot SDK and new Professional Services offerings — Boomi provides the tools organisations need to support a breadth of use cases across all personas, ensuring both high productivity and IT control. 

Boomi democratizes integration, making it accessible to all users regardless of their level of technical expertise or role in the organisation from citizen developers, business analysts and integration experts.

“Sky’s mission is to connect customers to more of what they love. Dell Boomi's ability to connect data, processes and people has an extremely positive impact on the experience Sky provides its 12 million UK customers,” said Olive Perrins, Service Strategy Manager at Sky. 

“Our people are critical to our success and being able to bring together our rich talent along with critical applications and data will be key to our continued success.”

New highlights of Dell Boomi’s capabilities geared toward the enterprise include:

Boomi Connect Now – Allows partners and select customers to provide a centralised self-service offering for users who don’t have integration expertise. 

Boomi Connect Now increases productivity for the business user, customer, vendor or supplier by assisting in accomplishing quick, foolproof integrations, while IT still maintains total control.

Boomi API Gateway and Developer Portal – It's increasingly important to facilitate secure and scalable interactions with external parties. By leveraging the gateway functionality, Boomi customers will have increased confidence in the security and scalability of the services that they provide. Furthermore, with the developer portal, Boomi customers will greatly enhance the discoverability and be able to engage at scale with their broader API consumers.

Data Services for Pivotal – Boomi and Pivotal now offer customers even faster deployment of the Boomi iPaaS, with deployment options available for Pivotal Kubernetes and Pivotal Application Services environments (PKS/PAS) from the Pivotal Cloud Foundry marketplace. 

This allows joint customers to rapidly respond to changing customer needs and provides a modernised IT infrastructure to help organisations become agile and cloud-first. Deep integration and seamless runtimes allow Boomi integration to fit seamlessly into Pivotal’s Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery (CI/CD) framework.

Boomi Enterprise Innovation Services – The latest professional services offering from Boomi allows enterprise customers to collaborate with Boomi experts to achieve innovation and excellence at scale and fully capitalise on Boomi’s industry-leading integration cloud to build a connected business. 

Available as a subscription, Dell Boomi Enterprise Innovation Services provides a package of integration services, support and resources, with the flexibility to customise to specific customer needs.

Architectural Services – Allows customers to harness the full power of evolving IT architectures by partnering with Dell Boomi’s architectural experts. With this service, customers can collaborate with Boomi technical, solutions, business and enterprise architects who offer unmatched industry experience.

"Just as is the case today with most businesses requiring an integration platform solution like Dell Boomi that helps them solve their integration challenges of a hybrid landscape, business will need to solve challenges that now require integration of their hybrid landscape and blockchain smart contracts,” said Michael J. Morton, CTO, Boomi.
