We’re excited to announce that Boomi has been named a Leader in the first-ever IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Cloud Integration Software and Services (iPaaS) Vendor Assessment. We’re proud of the honor because IDC MarketScape is a highly respected vendor assessment report designed to help organizations make informed technology decisions.

According to the IDC MarketScape, “As one of the original cloud-based integration tools, Boomi has considerable experience solving on-premises and multicloud integration scenarios and older protocols, as well as connecting to SaaS applications. Boomi has more connectors than any other integration provider evaluated, some of which can be modified, although some are at an additional cost. Boomi offers a lot of choice and flexibility in its pricing model, which is why it has among the broadest reported customer base across geographies and industries.”

What also caught our attention is how this IDC MarketScape highlighted the growing importance of integration capabilities in modern business. The study noted:

“Integration is a foundational connectivity automation technology that not only unlocks immediate business benefits but also replaces technical debt that was previously used to connect applications, making it easier to replace outdated legacy applications. Despite economic conditions, many organizations are still prioritizing investments in connectivity-based automation, particularly cloud-based cloud integration software and services.”

We couldn’t agree more. We see this study as further validation of what we see every day: Integration is a key capability in business today.

At Boomi, we’re helping organizations worldwide, across industries and all sizes, with their integration and automation requirements. They trust us to enable better collaboration and data-sharing as their technology environments become more fragmented and complicated. That’s why our mission of connecting everyone to everything is more critical than ever for success.

We’re constantly talking to business leaders and practitioners like you. While they might believe their challenges are unique to their businesses, we see some common themes. Organizations are leveraging all the wondrous, best-of-breed applications that potentially can drive their businesses forward. But, unfortunately, this often has unintended consequences.

Businesses are now dealing with a sprawling landscape of data and applications that don’t talk to each other, make it difficult to share information, and cannot synchronize data. Instead of becoming more efficient, teams are struggling with manual processes and complex toolsets. They’re forced to have talented people waste their valuable time performing mindless tasks like cutting and pasting data into a multitude of applications.

We call this problem the “modernization chokepoint.”

Boomi helps businesses break through that chokepoint with a straightforward toolset that replaces complexity with simplicity. This allows you the freedom to focus your people on innovation and projects that unlock the best outcomes for your business – and keep ahead of the competition. Your teams are more efficient and productive – and your customers are happier!

One of the most insightful portions of the IDC MarketScape is the section on why organizations are considering new integration tools. The reasons include the need to connect new cloud-based applications, break down data silos, and develop integrations faster while maximizing skilled resources.

Boomi’s cloud-native, low-code, scalable platform addresses all of these areas. We allow businesses to easily connect on-premises and cloud-based applications, data sources, and devices – both inside their business and with trading partners. With Boomi, businesses can automate workflows, simplify operations, and drive growth. And our technology-agnostic platform doesn’t lock you into any vendor environment. You run your business as you see fit.

We believe the IDC MarketScape’s recognition of Boomi as a Leader is a testament to our commitment to delivering innovative and reliable solutions that help our customers achieve their digital transformation ambitions. This honor, along with other industry recognition and feedback from our customers, validates that we are on the right track.

We have a clear vision of the future and many more exciting developments to come — and we can’t wait to show you what’s next.
