Dell Boomi is Named a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for iPaaS Worldwide

In the release of the March 2015 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Integration Platform as a Service, Worldwide, Gartner identified Dell Boomi as a leader in the magic quadrant—for the second year in a row—based on our ability to execute and completeness of vision.

Our positioning in the Leaders Quadrant*, in our opinion, is a testament to our commitment to continually bring innovation and strategic business value to our customers.

When I talk to customers, partners and industry analysts about why this is the perfect time for a cloud-first strategy, I emphasize the competitive advantage it offers. Aside from the faster time to value and increased speed and agility that companies gain by moving to the cloud, it is simply better for business.

Why? Because the productivity gains can’t be ignored.

Hybrid IT environments will exist well into the future and Dell Boomi integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS) is flexible enough to integrate anything, anywhere—at any time. Whether your data resides in legacy systems sitting on premises, at a data center halfway around the world, or in best-of-breed SaaS applications, iPaaS makes it easier to create and manage those integrations. In seconds, our patented Boomi Suggest crowdsourcing technology recommends a working integration, making it easy for you to get started. This isn’t your father’s template-based approach—these recommendations are dynamic, intelligent and adaptive, based on the worldwide collective knowledge of the Dell Boomi community right now.

With the growing number of mobile devices and expanded use of social media platforms, the number of endpoints you need to manage is increasing, too, as demand for web services accessed through APIs now comes from both inside and outside of your organization. Dell Boomi API Management lets you create, publish and manage all of your APIs, on the same platform you use for integration— dramatically simplifying the lifecycle management of all of those endpoints even as the numbers increase exponentially.

An iPaaS lets you share data effectively and efficiently through automated business processes. And if you can ensure that the data everyone shares is high quality by using master data management (MDM), you’ll enable the business to make better, more informed decisions—faster.

Dell Boomi iPaaS can help you simplify an extremely complex ecosystem, so you can spend more time focusing on delivering superior service to customers.

Cloud has allowed our customers to gain an edge through faster implementation—they can test new solutions quickly, and make decisions faster than ever. Dell Boomi minimizes the challenges and complexities associated with data and application integration, and our customers experience that every day. For example, here’s what our customer at Mozy, Inc. says:

“We selected Dell Boomi to for its powerful and easy-to-use technology that virtually dispels the challenges associated with hybrid IT,” said Mark Goetz, eServices Manager at Mozy, Inc. “With Dell Boomi, our team is more productive and agile and we are empowered to support the key business processes that help us better serve our customers.  For Dell Boomi to be named once again a leader by Gartner cements our confidence in the decision to rely on Dell Boomi’s powerful, scalable iPaaS.”

So if your organization struggles with the proliferation of integration technologies, if you wonder why integration projects take so long, if you’re tired of doing middleware software upgrades to stay current, if you wish you could train your engineers in a single skill for all types of integrations and APIs, then you need a single platform that simplifies these tasks and reduces the amount of time spent on integration. Take a look at Dell Boomi iPaaS—the one tool that can handle any type of integration, anywhere, very quickly. You will find that it not only adds value, but also changes the dynamics of integration by reducing cost and increasing productivity.
