Dell Facilitates 1 Million Cloud Integrations Per Day with Boomi

Dell's 2010 acquisition of cloud integration upstart Boomi was driven by its goal to become a leading provider of connectivity from private to public cloud application services.

The acquisition seems to be paying dividends: Dell this week said its tools are used for 1 million integrations per day.

What does that mean? Boomi founder and GM of the business unit Rick Nucci described an integration as the execution of a process which moves data between two or more applications. For example, when a sales rep closes a deal and enters the data into a CRM system, you need to invoice the customer. That means connecting the CRM system to the billing app, Nucci explained.

A portion of the data may be in a premises-based system and other information may reside in a Software as a Service (SaaS) app. Boomi Atoms provide that connectivity with its SaaS-based platform and software connectors. This SaaS-based messaging middleware offering aims to offer an alternative to messaging middleware from the likes of Microsoft, IBM, Oracle and Tibco.

"The cloud is being adopted by large enterprises and as they do so, the way they think of integration is changing," Nucci said. "The way we think of middleware and integration is fundamentally changing and Boomi has built a product meant to solve integration in the cloud era."

The company on Monday said it has partnered with services company Wipro, which will use Dell Boomi's service as part of its cloud integration practice. "They have found the traditional on premise middleware technologies just don't work to integrate with cloud service," Nucci said. The partnership follows a recent pact with Infosys. Nucci said Dell Boomi will be announcing a number of additional partnerships in the coming months.
