Untangling the complexity of multicloud: Inside Boomi’s iPaaS solution

Adopting a multicloud strategy goes beyond installing hyperconverged infrastructure and pressing go. Digitalization affects every department within a business, from frontline customer service to onboarding new hires. Without a cohesive integration, employees have to to deal with multiple apps provided by different vendors and the nightmare of dispersed, unorganized and inaccessible data. In short, a productivity catastrophe.

So how to clear a path through this technological jungle? Integrated platform as a service has become a popular solution, and the explosive growth rate for the market is forecast to continue.

A key player in the iPaaS industry is Dell Technologies Inc.-owned Boomi Inc. As Dell focuses on hybrid cloud, Dell Boomi has a focus on simplifying multicloud operations, accelerating business outcomes for their customers.

“Boomi doesn’t want people to just survive hybrid information technology, Boomi wants you to thrive in that environment, wants you to really get going and be able to easily unite that, aggregate that, filter that as necessary,” said Chris McNabb (pictured), chief executive officer of Boomi Inc.

McNabb spoke with Stu Miniman (@stu) and Lisa Martin (@lisamartintv), co-hosts of theCUBE, SiliconANGLE Media’s mobile livestreaming studio, during the Dell Technologies World event in Las Vegas. McNabb discussed Boomi’s iPaaS success story and how customers are using the platform for positive effects on society and the bottom line (see the full interview with transcript here). (* Disclosure below.)

Leveraging the opportunity of multicloud

Offering PaaS and iPaaS solutions for more than a decade, Dell Boomi is no newbie to cloud integration. Success stories from its 8,000+ global customers, which include big names like General Electric Co., Lyft Inc., Sky PLC and Chevron Corp., bolster its reputation. Sometimes, however, results of 307% ROI and $4.8-million payback can seem too good to be true.

“Can you show me? I’m not sure I believe you; show me,” is a request McNabb hears often. Just like the integration itself, demonstrating the potential of Boomi’s cloud-based platform is fast and easy. “I could set you up with an account in three minutes, and you’re off and running. So you can play with it; you can get experience with it,” McNabb stated.

Boomi customer digitalAngel Netherlands B.V. is using technology to reduce discomfort for bedridden patients. The company’s internet of things heathcare platform works through smart mattresses embedded with processors that monitor patient breath, heart rate, movement and perspiration events. These events are analyzed by Boomi, and any potential problems, such as excess moisture or lack of movement (which could lead to bedsores), trigger an instant alert to the nurses station.

“When you can make such a big outcome change for people, [when] you get that kind of reduction in infections in a short period of time, it’s very exhilarating,” McNabb said.

Dell is Boomi’s “unfair competitive advantage,” according to McNabb. “As we come together and work together, we have an ability to change customers’ lives forever in combination. It’s an extraordinarily powerful ecosystem that is focused on one thing, customer results,” he said. “As a leader of a business within [the Dell ecosystem], it literally couldn’t be better.”
