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.
Our experience has given us unique insights into the capabilities needed for customers to get the most value from an integration platform. So we’ve put together an infographic that explains the importance of the key characteristics needed for iPaaS — cloud-native, low-code, open, distributed and unified.
As enterprises strive towards digital disruption, the adoption of iPaaS is on the rise. A recent Vanson Bourne report shows that of 900 global IT leaders surveyed, 43 percent of the respondents are using iPaaS today and another 51 percent are in the process of planning to adopt it or deploying it.
Integration helps organizations achieve digital transformation by bringing together all the elements needed for a seamless, friction-free omnichannel customer experience. This isn’t limited to just technology either — a true iPaaS can connect people and processes as well, supporting the new model for building connected business.
Boomi helps more than 7,000 organizations with their integration needs. Each day, the Boomi platform manages well over a million cloud integrations. Our iPaaS consistently garners industry accolades, ranking at the top of market assessments and competitive comparisons year after year.
