A Strong Performer

The Forrester Wave: Integration Platforms As A Service, Q3 2023 report cover thumbnail The Forrester Wave for iPaaS offers valuable insights into the many factors that businesses must address to deploy intelligent integration and automation solutions to fuel their digital transformation. These factors include:

  • The explosion of software as a service (SaaS) applications
  • The need for integration aligned with API-led architectures
  • The increased demand for automation throughout businesses

“IT leaders use integration to breathe new life into legacy systems of record that struggle to keep up with cloud-native and real-time architectures, averting an expensive rip-and-replace migration from systems with untold years’ worth of complex business logic baked into them,” Forrester wrote.

“With its speed, ease-of-use, and lower total cost of ownership, approximately 20,000 global customers across industries trust and rely on the Boomi platform to easily deliver fast and complete business outcomes. Our platform has the full breadth of capabilities organizations need to eliminate today’s modernization chokepoints and accelerate achievement of their digital transformation goals.”
