We’ve heard anecdotally from our customers about how they’ve used the Boomi integration cloud to unlock operational efficiencies, generate revenue streams and drive digital transformation.
By adopting Boomi’s low-code, cloud-native platform, our customers can much more quickly and easily connect data, applications and people. They tell us of dramatic cost savings, increased organizational speed and a broad mix of soft benefits.
But we wanted to know more details. What benefits were most significant, how do those benefits come about, and what’s the average return on investment (ROI) for Boomi enterprise customers?

So far in this “Integration 101” blog series, I’ve covered the basics of integration and tried to untangle some of the misunderstandings around APIs and web services — what they are and what they can and can’t do.
And, speaking of misunderstandings, there’s a lot of confusion about push versus pull when it comes to integration. Who’s pushing and who’s pulling? When do I push versus pull? And does it really matter? It does matter.

In today’s competitive age of digital transformation, organizations have to move and respond rapidly. But companies can’t drive new business initiatives that grow revenues, reduce costs and mitigate risk without the ability to tailor IT infrastructure to match the needs of the business. Cloud makes this possible.
In Nov. 2017, analyst firm Forrester predicted that the global public cloud market would grow from $146 billion in 2017 to $178 billion in 2018, a compounded annual growth rate of 22% percent.

Over the past few years, we’ve seen a growing trend in the software industry: Enterprise SaaS companies focusing on integration.
Adobe recently announced the next generation of Adobe Cloud Platform. Salesforce acquired MuleSoft. SAP, Oracle, and the other leading customer relationship management (CRM) and enterprise resource planning (ERP) providers all have chosen to build their own integration tools.
Why have all of these companies invested in integration?

Organizations in Australia and around the world are rapidly adopting cloud applications to manage financials, customers, operations, human resources and more. Yet those systems can’t continue to exist as data islands. Data silos prevent businesses from developing a holistic approach to building a competitive advantage.
As a senior architect on the Dell Boomi Professional Services team in Australia, I’ve worked with dozens of companies that have made the leap from the time-consuming and inflexible integration technologies of the past to faster, more agile integration platform as a service (iPaaS).

It’s very common for businesses to try to be all things to all people. And, obviously, some have been very successful at it. Remember how Amazon started? Books. Now you can buy just about anything from Amazon — including groceries.
QAD has chosen a different path. This maker of enterprise resource planning (ERP) software is focused on one industry —manufacturing. It serves only the largest companies, and as a result, is best in its class.

To create an agile, efficient enterprise, it pays to think big. And by big, I mean systematically like an enterprise architect, who creates IT infrastructures that support business strategies.
The job calls for both business knowledge and IT knowledge. And the architect can succeed only if the organization recognizes integration as a strategic capability, rather than as a series of discrete chores to be performed when developers have the time.

It is no longer business as usual for utility companies across the globe. Their customers now expect all digital experiences to measure up to the best mobile app, while deregulation, rapidly evolving energy technologies, and the Internet of Things are placing enormous pressure on utility providers to evolve.
To help utility providers modernize their IT infrastructure to drive digital transformation, Accenture has created the Accenture Customer Experience Solution (ACES) for Utilities.

So far, we’ve published three posts on the scope, challenges and data obligations of the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our most recent post focused on how Dell Boomi can help organizations address three of the six high-risk obligations identified by Dell Technologies that are imposed by the GDPR: record keeping, accountability and data retention.
But good “data hygiene” is critical to routine business activities beyond the GDPR.

It’s an accepted truth that applications deployed one or two decades ago simply can’t deliver the performance, agility or efficiency necessary to keep up with the demands of today’s changing business climate. As such, smart organizations are rebuilding their application portfolios and migrating to the cloud.
At Slalom, we partner with companies like Boomi and our mutual customers to push the boundaries of what’s possible — together. We provide strategic guidance and technical expertise for companies large and small, across the U.S.
