In today’s competitive age of digital transformation, organizations have to move and respond rapidly. But companies can’t drive new business initiatives that grow revenues, reduce costs and mitigate risk without the ability to tailor IT infrastructure to match the needs of the business. Cloud makes this possible.

In Nov. 2017, analyst firm Forrester predicted that the global public cloud market would grow from $146 billion in 2017 to $178 billion in 2018, a compounded annual growth rate of 22% percent.

At my company, TechStone, we’ve worked with enterprises in markets ranging from retail to energy to waste management, helping them create integration centers of excellence (ICoEs). And we have witnessed first-hand the benefits that ICoEs can deliver for organizations — benefits such as reduced labor costs, faster time-to-market, and greater interdepartmental collaboration.

Working on these projects with multiple companies over many years, we’ve had the chance to see what works and what doesn’t, regardless of the size of the company or the industry it’s competing in.

Why Collaboration Is Essential for Creating an Integration Center of Excellence

In an earlier post, I wrote about how to build an integration center of excellence.

Instead of treating integration as a series of ad hoc engineering projects, an integration center of excellence (ICoE) makes creating and managing integrations a cross-departmental activity — engaging stakeholders in business, engineering, testing, operations and compliance.

The ICoE establishes integration patterns and standards, which are applied across the organization. Integration development becomes fast, predictable, and cost-effective.

In a previous blog post, “Why Every Enterprise Needs an Integration Center of Excellence,” I wrote about the difference an integration center of excellence (ICoE) can make to your organization. The benefits include faster integration development with more predictive results. IT investments deliver better returns, and your enterprise becomes more agile and responsive.

But if your enterprise doesn’t have an ICoE today, how can you build one? I’ve worked with some of the largest, most dynamic organizations in the world on their integration projects, and I’ve seen what works and what doesn’t.

There’s a cloud of buzzwords around APIs, the API economy, and just where APIs fit into the vision of digital transformation.

Dell Boomi is all about creating the connected business, and we believe APIs are certainly part of it.

So, in this post, we’ll look at APIs from two vantage points:

  1. What we’re hearing about APIs from CIOs
  2. How the Boomi unified integration platform can help organizations quickly create high-quality APIs and dramatically reduce management headaches

Does Your Approach to APIs Scale?

It’s very common for businesses to try to be all things to all people. And, obviously, some have been very successful at it. Remember how Amazon started? Books. Now you can buy just about anything from Amazon — including groceries.

QAD has chosen a different path. This maker of enterprise resource planning (ERP) software is focused on one industry —manufacturing. It serves only the largest companies, and as a result, is best in its class.

Need a Blueprint for Digital Transformation? An Enterprise Architect Can Help.

Posted by Myles Suer on June 28th, 2018
Paper blueprints on a table.

To create an agile, efficient enterprise, it pays to think big. And by big, I mean systematically like an enterprise architect, who creates IT infrastructures that support business strategies.

The job calls for both business knowledge and IT knowledge. And the architect can succeed only if the organization recognizes integration as a strategic capability, rather than as a series of discrete chores to be performed when developers have the time.

Coffee cup that reads: "Keep Calm and prepare for GDPR"

So far, we’ve published three posts on the scope, challenges and data obligations of the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our most recent post focused on how Dell Boomi can help organizations address three of the six high-risk obligations identified by Dell Technologies that are imposed by the GDPR: record keeping, accountability and data retention.

But good “data hygiene” is critical to routine business activities beyond the GDPR.

The Challenge of Patient360: Supporting Systems of Engagement with Systems of Record

Posted by John Reeves on May 10th, 2018

When healthcare professionals talk about the benefits of a 360-degree view of the patient — or Patient360 — the discussion often ignores the complexities involved in pulling that off. Patient360 demands that organizations convert systems of record into systems of engagement. Or rather, it is about making it possible for new, modern systems of engagement to easily draw data from existing systems of record.

That, in turn, requires a platform that allows all the players in the healthcare lifecycle, which include payers, providers, third-party services used by either, and patients to exchange data securely with a minimum of friction.
