Dell Boomi has announced the Spring 2018 release of the Boomi platform, which features IoT connectivity for business outcomes, integration accelerators, and new capabilities for creating low code workflow applications.
Helping enterprises connect everything and engage everywhere across any channel, device or platform, Boomi provides integration platform as a service (iPaaS) to enable enterprises to improve productivity, accountability, and collaboration both internally and with customers and partners to help build The Connected Business and drive digital transformation efforts.
In particular, with this release, Boomi is focused on delivering new capabilities to help customers address the last mile of IoT—integration of device data—so they can more easily achieve the business outcomes they’re seeking from their strategic IoT investments, Steve Wood, chief product officer, Dell Boomi.
Powering the last-mile integration of device data with customers’ existing applications both on-premise and in the cloud, new features include:
Edge device support - IoT integration patterns require seamless integration of device data, application data and people. The patented Boomi Atom, a lightweight run-time engine allows your integrations to be deployed: in Boomi’s Atom Cloud; in a public or private cloud; or on-premises and provides a highly flexible and scalable execution engine. The Boomi Atom allows customers to run integrations, and host and manage web services, anywhere; on-premise, in clouds or edge devices.
IoT Protocol Support - Boomi provides best-of-breed connectivity to cloud and on-premise applications, as well as to sources of device data through support for a variety of IoT connectivity protocols, including open standards such as AMQP, MQTT and REST.
Workflow Automation for IoT - Real business value comes from the orchestration of applications, data and people to drive a situation to a business outcome. Organizations can use Boomi Flow to create business processes that respond to certain alerts or triggers as appropriate and allow for human intervention or decisions.
Boomi Environment Management - IoT deployments often consist of hundreds of thousands of devices distributed across a large landscape, requiring multiple edge gateways that need to perform common application integration functions. With Boomi Environment Management, customers can now create, update and delete application integration processes once, and the changes will automatically synchronize across all Boomi Atoms, and associated gateways, that belong to an environment. IoT integration processes can be built, tested and promoted between environments with a full audit trail of what was deployed, and by whom.
With this release, Boomi also continues to help customer’s accelerate implementation with multiple enhancements to the development UI as well as new and enhanced connectors for Amazon Web Services (AWS), Salesforce, Google DFP, Google BigQuery, Hadoop, Box, Dynamics 365 for CRM, Quickbooks online, Coupa and Intacct.
As part of the unified platform to help customers create low-code applications and automated workflows that connect any application or data end points in an organization, Boomi Flow introduces new capabilities to extend file management and database support:
From Boomi Flow, users can access, retrieve, load and save files from any source accessible to the Boomi platform, make changes in those files, and have them saved for consistency and access from any application integrated with Boomi, including Microsoft SharePoint, regardless of where those files are residing in the organization. Boomi also adds the ability to manage aspects of legacy on-premise databases or cloud databases using Boomi Flow. The process of accessing a database and all load, save, delete operations, whether for a specific row or table or for many records, can now be achieved from Boomi Flow leveraging Boomi’s connectivity capabilities.
And finally, Boomi speeds developer productivity across the platform with a configuration-based, low-code approach to development. New features to increase developer productivity include a re-designed deployment workflow to support user-defined versioning, ensuring that the version stays with the package when it is deployed or shared. To support API management, the authentication broker now allows users to create one authentication source and deploy it across multiple external sources, and Boomi now supports the import of a Swagger 2.0 definition or WSDL from a publicly-facing URL to automate the generation of API endpoints. Harnessing the power of the user community, a section of the Boomi community called Community Share lets users now publish and share examples and templates across the Boomi ecosystem, showcasing their expertise.
