Dell Boomi announced the latest release of its integration platform-as-a-service (iPaaS) to help organizations integrate data across applications in hybrid IT environments involving cloud-based and on-premises systems.
Boomi’s Fall 2016 release includes more than 200 features that have been added over several months and are now generally available.
Increased Productivity with User Experience Enhancements
Boomi provides cloud integration with a simple drag-and-drop user interface (UI). In this release, Boomi delivers an enhanced UI to offer improved guidance and assistance for users throughout the platform, including more robust search functions and embedded help.
Fast Implementation with Boomi Connectors and Application Integration Accelerators
With this release, Boomi has added or updated connectors for Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), Amazon Simple Notification Service (SNS), DoubleClick by Google, Hobsons, Intuit QuickBooks 2016, Magento, Marketo, Microsoft Azure Blob Storage, Microsoft Azure SQL Database and SQL Data Warehouse, Microsoft Dynamics CRM, MQTT, NetSuite, Oracle Taleo Cloud Service, Salesforce, SAP, Slack, SugarCRM, and UltiPro.
In addition, this release provides the following implementation accelerators:
Boomi Process Library: customers can now access more than 25 prebuilt integration processes that serve as examples and starting points for implementing their own integrations.
Integration Pack User Interface: this web application provides Boomi partners and customers with a complete reference to accelerate development of their own custom interfaces for provisioning, configuring, and managing integration packs.
New Data Governance and Security Features to Ensure Compliance
Boomi has added a number of new capabilities that allow for effective data governance across the enterprise.
Records that have been quarantined based on data quality rules can be selectively merged with their associated golden records when a quarantined record includes relevant or more current data. Data stewards can now create and view historical reports using multiple parameters to gain insight into data quality trends. Another new feature is the ability to create custom data stewardship roles that can be applied to groups of users based on the specific data governance needs of an organization.
Boomi’s certificate management feature also helps customers replace a certificate quickly and easily.
Better Control with New Deployment Management
The Boomi platform provides a unified solution for handling all types of data interactions that take place within an organization and includes integration as well as features for master data management, electronic data interchange, and API management.
