Defining Integration Platform as a Service
Integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS) enables companies to achieve their digital transformation goals faster by unifying application and data integration, API management, workflow automation, B2B/EDI partners, and master data management in a single, scalable, cloud-based solution.
Single-instance, multi-tenant architecture
The flexible architecture of iPaaS enables multiple organizations to share underlying computing resources securely – saving time and money. The iPaaS provider manages and updates the software and infrastructure while deploying upgrades regularly across the customer base. This eliminates the need for customers to purchase, implement, and manage hardware and software.
Pre-built connectors and recipes
Pre-built connectors of common integrations such as Salesforce and NetSuite to drastically reduce development time, so you see faster time to value with critical business systems.
A radical new way of connecting systems, processes, data, and people in a conversational user experience by leveraging the anonymized metadata from over 200 million integrations.
Enterprise and B2B/EDI integration
Boomi supports common data transmission methods and provides universal translation capabilities for non-standard data formats. It also supports a wide variety of enterprise integration scenarios, including B2B/EDI, standards-based web services, and industry-specific standards such as HL7 for healthcare.
Boomi Event Streams allows organizations to create more resilient, scalable, and real-time integrations than traditional point-to-point integration processes – all without the inherent complexity and overhead traditionally associated with event-driven architectures.
Crowdsourced Intelligence and Community
Collecting anonymous platform usage metadata, aggregating it, and making it available to the Boomi community reduces the time to configure, test and implement integrations. For example, as you map fields for each integration, Boomi automatically makes suggestions on how best to build it based on the experience of other users – enabling you to integrate systems faster and with fewer errors.
Unlike traditional, legacy middleware solutions where all integration data passes through a single bus and lightweight cloud-only solutions, Boomi integration development and management is cloud-native with the ability to deploy anywhere. Integrations can be packaged as run-time engines in the cloud, on-premises, at the edge – to address customer-specific security, data sovereignty, and latency considerations.
Centralized API management
Boomi provides an intuitive, web-based console for creating, deploying, monitoring, and managing integrations across the enterprise. Customers gain a single, centralized view of all integration processes.
Predictable, affordable pricing
Boomi’s subscription service offers customers a predictable, transparent, and understandable pricing structure – with no surprises. Customers purchase only the functionality and services they need.
