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.

5 Things to Do Before Any Cloud Migration Project

Posted by Oliver Asmus on May 22nd, 2018

It’s an accepted truth that applications deployed one or two decades ago simply can’t deliver the performance, agility or efficiency necessary to keep up with the demands of today’s changing business climate. As such, smart organizations are rebuilding their application portfolios and migrating to the cloud.

At Slalom, we partner with companies like Boomi and our mutual customers to push the boundaries of what’s possible — together. We provide strategic guidance and technical expertise for companies large and small, across the U.S.

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.

Integration plays an increasingly important role in IT, connecting applications and APIs, spanning cloud services and internal networks, automating workflows and delivering that most sought-after quality for daily operations: agility.

As integration workloads increase, performance and scalability become critical issues. Organizations can’t afford to have integration processes hit bottlenecks because of limitations in CPU power, memory or network bandwidth.

In integration, as in other areas of IT, performance matters. IT organizations should consider how they’re going scale integration processes to meet the needs of business users and the workflows they depend on.

On Wednesday, March 20, 2018, Salesforce announced the signing of a definitive agreement to acquire MuleSoft for approximately $6.5 billion. Salesforce indicates that MuleSoft will power what it is calling its new “Salesforce integration cloud.”

That is a great vision and promise. It is one that we enthusiastically support. The best news? The Integration Cloud is available today. It’s been here for more than a decade. It’s called Boomi.

In 2006 Boomi pioneered the integration cloud market.

IT modernization is on a fast track in Western Australia. Backed by an AUD$3 billion investment from the state government, an initiative promises to digitally transform how Western Australian government and businesses operate over the next 10 years.

The stakes are huge. Western Australia’s core economic engine, the mining industry, has been in gradual decline since it transitioned from a capital construction phase to a production phase in 2013.

The state government’s NextGov-ICT program is designed to save the state up to AUD$80 million a year, in part by transitioning from 60 standalone data centers to a hybrid cloud IT architecture.
