Posted by Charles Waltner on April 12th, 2018

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.

EDI Cloud Integration: Making a Good Thing Even Better

Posted by Charles Waltner on March 9th, 2018
Close-up of watch with "B2B" on watch face

There’s a lot of research out there that says B2B integration can make or break your business. In fact, industry analysts have called out B2B integration as one of the top three critical integration scenarios that businesses face.

B2B integration run by electronic data interchange (EDI) makes it possible to effectively manage your partner network — vendors, suppliers and distributors. While EDI is the most established method for running B2B networks, organizations are facing multiple challenges with this decades-old technology:

  • Inflexible, legacy EDI systems that were not built to integrate with new cloud-based applications
  • Inability to support business initiatives for mobile applications and API connections
  • Complicated troubleshooting and error resolution
  • Lack of end-to-end supply chain visibility
  • Slow partner onboarding

To learn more about how Boomi’s low-code, cloud-native integration platform can deliver hassle-free integration and EDI management, please attend our upcoming webinar, “Managing Your B2B Transactions in the Cloud.”

EDI Is Great, But…

Studies conducted by a host of organizations like GS1 UK confirm the continuing value of electronic data interchange (EDI).

The Habits of Highly Effective Integration Developers

Laziness. Is that really a good habit for developers?

Search the internet for advice on the virtues of successful developers, and you’ll find a wealth of observations, not all of which exactly square with one another. The differences shouldn’t be surprising. People vary, and successful people will vary in how they go about achieving success.

Beneath these variations, though, there are common, road-tested practices — habits — for addressing the challenges of producing excellent software — whether integrations or new applications — day after day, under tight deadlines, and in the face of shifting technical requirements and business conditions.

Posted by Charles Waltner on December 13th, 2017

You’ve connected your most critical business applications to one another. Data — the lifeblood of any organization — is now moving easily from one system to another throughout your organization.

And now you need a way of ensuring the integrity of that data.

When the finance department updates a billing record, does that change make its way to the customer relationship management (CRM) application? When a warehouse receives a new shipment of products, is that information updated in a timely way across departments?

Many companies turn to integration to solve specific problems, such as connecting one business application to another. But Boomi integration platform as a service (iPaaS) offers much more than a low-code development environment for quickly building point-to-point connections.

Boomi also enables SMBs and enterprises to publish and manage APIs, enforce data quality with master data management, and automate workflows.

To appreciate the importance of these other features, let’s consider a topic that might seem unrelated to data integration and data management, but which turns out to depend on them heavily.

Boomi EDI Integration Revolutionizing Partner Trading Ecosystems

Posted by Charles Waltner on October 10th, 2017
Chalkboard with "Electronic Data Interchange (EDI)"

For more than 30 years, businesses around the world have depended on EDI for their trading networks and ecommerce operations.

EDI remains an indispensable technology, but many EDI products are showing their age. Some still require users to work with command-line or spreadsheet-like interfaces rather than modern low-code interfaces. And most are functioning as operational silos, disconnected from other key business applications and APIs.

Time-consuming to manage and difficult to integrate, EDI is a business technology that’s ripe for some much need improvements.
