On Wednesday, March 20, 2018, Salesforce announced the signing of a definitive agreement to acquire MuleSoft for approximately $6.5 billion. Salesforce indicates that MuleSoft will power what it is calling its new “Salesforce integration cloud.”
That is a great vision and promise. It is one that we enthusiastically support. The best news? The Integration Cloud is available today. It’s been here for more than a decade. It’s called Boomi.

Across the globe extreme weather events and natural disasters routinely bring disruption, chaos and economic hardship to communities and businesses.
For example, in New Zealand where my IT consultancy Adaptiv Integration is headquartered, hard-working teams in the utility and local and central government sectors face constant pressure to respond 24x7x365 to the impact of natural and man-made events. And not always successfully.
Natural catastrophe and extreme weather events have topped the list of perceived risks to New Zealand in the World Economic Forum’s Global Risks report for 2018.

As cloud technology and business practices evolve, it is important to capture the strategies that are working for chief information officers. To do this, I reached out to the followers of #CIOChat that I host on Twitter. I asked CIOs for their current thinking on public cloud, private cloud and hybrid cloud. We discussed how organizations can best take advantage of this fundamental technology shift. Hopefully, their insights prove valuable to you.
The State of Cloud Strategy
Most CIOs say they are currently carrying out a mixed cloud strategy and that the cloud-first approach is a relatively new development.

For companies interested in being “cloud-first,” most of the discussions out in the Googlesphere focus on managing the challenges of incrementally — to one degree or another — moving your organization to this ideal future state.
But for companies that either begin life as a cloud-first company or have made an all-or-nothing transition, there isn’t so much guidance available about what to do once you have gone “all cloud.” However, a recent Dell Boomi case study about our customer, Moderna Therapeutics, provides invaluable perspectives and insights for companies that are already all-cloud or about to do so.

IT modernization is on a fast track in Western Australia. Backed by an AUD$3 billion investment from the state government, an initiative promises to digitally transform how Western Australian government and businesses operate over the next 10 years.
The stakes are huge. Western Australia’s core economic engine, the mining industry, has been in gradual decline since it transitioned from a capital construction phase to a production phase in 2013.
The state government’s NextGov-ICT program is designed to save the state up to AUD$80 million a year, in part by transitioning from 60 standalone data centers to a hybrid cloud IT architecture.

Slalom is a leading, purpose-driven company that helps organizations use technology to address business problems and build for the future.
“Building for the future” often involves integrating with the legacy systems of the past. And the more entrenched those legacy systems are in your core business processes, the more likely you’ll need to adopt an iterative legacy modernization strategy that results in your data straddling two worlds, both legacy and the future.
