In our previous post on the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), we explained that Dell Technologies has identified six high-risk obligations that organizations must meet for GDPR compliance. As an independent business unit of Dell, Inc., Dell Boomi has used this framework to assess how its unified platform can aid organizations as they prepare for the GDPR.

Boomi Master Data Hub provides organizations the ability to address three of the six high-risk obligations for GDPR: Record Keeping, the Accountability Principle and Data Retention.

Helping to Prepare for GDPR: Ready, Set, Go

Posted by Pragnya Paramita on April 25th, 2018

As we noted in our first post about the European Union’s update to its 1995 Data Protection Directive — the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) — many CIOs in the United States are expecting to spend a million dollars or more to comply with GDPR. [1]

It’s hard to quibble with that kind of money, but millions of dollars won’t be enough — unless they’re spent wisely. And that means CIOs need a plan.

For years, European financial services customers have demanded more choice, better deals and superior customer service from their banks. In 2018 their wish be will granted. The EU’s Open Banking initiative forces banks to expose their customer data and payments infrastructure to third parties. This means digital payments and deep spending insights will be fully available to customers for the first time.

Open banking brings about a whole new challenge. It is a cultural, as well as technological, shift.

The European Union (EU) Data Protection Directive was passed in 1995. However, it didn’t foresee all the changes that would happen because of the evolution of digital technology. As a result, an update was needed. And now it will be shortly. The new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) takes effect on May 25, 2018.

Though certainly not a fix for every aspect of the GDPR, data and application integration can play an important role in how organizations respond to GDPR requirements.

Financial Services is undergoing rapid change. Mobile banking and fintech systems are spurring the emergence of the European-led Open Banking initiative.

This is a significant development in existing regulations. While Open Banking aims to enhance customer protection and security, it also makes it possible for telcos, retailers and other companies to provide payment services. These organizations, with their ability to continually improve and differentiate their customer experiences, will likely disrupt the financial services industry.

How Now Cloud? Where CIOs See the Cloud Today and for Tomorrow

Posted by Myles Suer on February 16th, 2018

As cloud technology and business practices evolve, it is important to capture the strategies that are working for chief information officers. To do this, I reached out to the followers of #CIOChat that I host on Twitter. I asked CIOs for their current thinking on public cloud, private cloud and hybrid cloud. We discussed how organizations can best take advantage of this fundamental technology shift. Hopefully, their insights prove valuable to you.

The State of Cloud Strategy

Most CIOs say they are currently carrying out a mixed cloud strategy and that the cloud-first approach is a relatively new development.

Super Hero Made of People

For this edition of the Community Champions series, we talked to Sjaak Overgaauw. Sjaak has taken somewhat of a road less traveled to reach his current position as founder and CTO of Cloud Connectors — a Netherlands company specializing in integration using the Dell Boomi platform. And his ambient music genre recording label Premonition Factory simply adds to Sjaak’s interesting background.

The Cloud Revolution in Banking

Posted by Charles Waltner on July 19th, 2017

At a recent banking roundtable hosted in London, participants were presented with two questions:

  • Do you agree that in just three years from now, every new core banking system that goes live will do so in the cloud?
  • And do you agree that any new bank starting now would be mad to go any other way than the cloud?

The answer to both questions — from participants ranging from executives at established banks to founders of banking start-ups — was “yes.”

Banking Is Moving to the Cloud

To appreciate how startling this answer is, remember that, at least in the United States, most core banking systems — the systems that run the daily operations of a bank — are legacy on-premise software systems.

Solving Interoperability Challenges for Healthcare and Life Sciences Organizations

Posted by Karen Diamond on October 24th, 2014

In the wake of mergers and acquisitions, as well as today’s emphasis on value-based care, healthcare and life sciences organizations need access to patient data from many disparate systems. The result? A hybrid IT environment—composed of any combination of legacy, cloud and on-premises systems.

But that’s not the only challenge healthcare and life sciences organizations face. Whether we’re talking about payers (health insurers, Medicare, pharmacy benefits management), providers (hospitals, clinics), or life sciences companies (pharmaceutical companies, contract research organizations, labs), these organizations must:

  • Balance tremendous cost pressures while working within and among a wide array of systems.
