According to a recent IDG Cloud Computing Survey, the average IT environment is increasingly becoming cloud-based. Cloud is no longer seen primarily as a cost reduction strategy — now it’s become an enabler of the digital business model and is the foundation to digital transformation.

One of the most widely used cloud software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications is Salesforce — and for many companies, it is core to their business operations. However, in order for organizations to harness the full potential of their data and their investment in key apps like Salesforce, they need a cloud integration platform that can connect Salesforce to everything else in the IT landscape — from legacy systems to other cloud applications and even IoT devices and data lakes.

When it comes to integration platform as a service (iPaaS) technology, Dell Boomi leads the pack — in fact, we pioneered the concept, creating the industry’s first iPaaS in 2008.

iPaaS is the de facto standard for building an integration cloud. It is a scalable multi-tenant platform that supports cloud, on-premise and hybrid IT environments. An iPaaS should be agile, nimble and scalable, able to deliver a cloud service at innovation-ready speed for every enterprise integration scenario.
