Whether you work in business or IT, each day brings a pile of manual tasks to be completed. These chores are often mundane and repetitive, and can leave you wondering if you’ll ever have a moment to accomplish anything more rewarding and valuable.

Everyone talks about the need for task automation, but who is going to set up automation for everyday business tasks when IT developers are tied up with bigger digital transformation projects? And for that matter, who is going to handle task automation when IT needs a little help?

Meet Boomi Task Automation

Today, we’re excited to introduce Boomi Task Automation, which will turn the way you want to work into reality – a reality where you are empowered to focus on the big picture. Task Automation is more than a no-code task automation tool that automates repetitive tasks for IT and business professionals: It is the new productivity hack that frees up time so you can achieve more results with less work.

The beta version of Task Automation is free for anyone to try. This is a great opportunity for you to explore do-it-yourself (DIY) automation and discover how easy work can be. Why spend time on the tedious checklist items when you could focus on more fulfilling initiatives that let you flex your creativity?

With Task Automation, business professionals in sales, marketing, finance, HR, support — you name it — can start automating everyday tasks to boost productivity, without waiting for IT. An intuitive, no-code interface lets non-technical business users simply choose apps and tasks to automate from pre-built templates — or even ask Boomi AI to help. Some examples include:

  • Sales: When an opportunity is created in Salesforce, notify the opportunity team in Slack
  • Marketing: When a new Salesforce record is created, create a new lead in HubSpot
  • Finance: When new receipts are added in Expensify, create Quickbooks expenses

And, IT professionals can free up time by setting up simple automations such as creating issue tickets in GitHub for new bugs reported in Jira.

The Multimillion-Dollar Payback of Automation

Once you have set up your automations — which only takes  a few clicks — you can watch Task Automation tackle your busywork while you turn your attention to what matters most. That’s a rewarding experience at the individual level — and it has a big impact at the organizational level, too.

A Deloitte report says that organizations moving beyond pilot phases of intelligent automation are reducing costs by an average of 32%. Intelligent automation can also improve customer satisfaction and help drive increased revenue. Combined with cost savings, this can result in multimillion-dollar paybacks for larger organizations. Benefits add up in areas such as:

  • Improved productivity and operational cost efficiency
  • Greater data accuracy by minimizing risk of human error
  • Improved sales and customer service
  • Higher employee job satisfaction and retention
  • ncreased capacity to scale the business

With Task Automation, everyone wins — business and IT team members, customers and partners, and your organization as a whole.

Democratizing No-Code Automation

Boomi pioneered the integration platform as a service (iPaaS) market with low-code technology, and have been recognized as a leader in the space ever since. In 2024, the company was positioned highest for Ability to Execute in the Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Integration Platform as a Service.1

Our focus has not only been about boosting developer productivity but also driving democratization of these innovations to allow more people — technical or not — to reap the benefits from AI and no-code automation.

“The Boomi Task Automation beta program marks a pivotal step in our democratization of innovation journey, where we truly open up access to our platform for business professionals to enjoy the benefits of no-code technologies along with their IT colleagues,” said Ed Macosky, Chief Product and Technology Officer. 

Get Started and Stay Tuned

We are just getting started. Boomi Task Automation is accessible today via web on desktops, and we plan to bring it to mobile phones soon.

For those of you who have been following Boomi AI, the conversational experience offered through Boomi GPT will also be embedded inside Task Automation in the future. You’ll be able to simply describe the tasks you need automated and watch Task Automation make all your apps and data work together — automatically.
