Dell Software has launched its next-generation Dell Boomi Master Data Management (MDM) that delivers a comprehensive set of features and capabilities in a single cloud-managed solution. This marks a fundamental shift: now mid-sized companies can take advantage of an MDM solution that simplifies data management, data integration and assurance of data quality—at a fraction of the traditional big-vendor cost.
Dell Boomi MDM offers significant realization of next-generation MDM as defined by The Data Warehouse Institute (TDWI) Best Practices Research1, and it is a 100 percent cloud-based offering with multi-domain support, near real-time synchronization, bi-directional data flow and includes web service calls that support enriching and validating data.
“MDM tools based on software as a service (SaaS) and/or clouds are still relatively new,” said Philip Russom, research director for data management, The Data Warehousing Institute (TDWI). “Even so, there is a growing demand for and trust in cloud-based MDM tools and solutions. For example, a TDWI survey run in 2012 showed that 25 percent of organizations are planning to adopt cloud-based MDM within three years. This amounts to a potential growth rate of 20 percent, which is quite healthy given the current economy. So we can expect cloud-based MDM solutions to be in use by more organizations soon.”
Dell Boomi MDM is focused on four core steps:
- Define – Rapidly model master data entities through a visual experience with no coding necessary; use Dell Boomi Suggest, for crowd-sourced data models that can dynamically improve as the contributor community grows
- Deploy – Deploy models into the MDM repository and identify which source systems will interact with them
- Synchronize – Leverage Dell Boomi AtomSphere® to orchestrate data synchronization and design process flows designed to ensure data quality
- Govern – Govern data as it flows into the MDM system to resolve duplicates, fix data entry issues as well as identify and correct erroneous data
“Given their complexity and cost, most master data management solutions are simply out of reach for midmarket customers,” said Chris McNabb, director of product management, Dell Boomi. “We’re offering these customers an accessible, easy to use cloud-managed MDM solution that provides short time to value to help ensure their success.”
For customers who wish to gain the maximum benefits of MDM, Dell Boomi provides seamless navigation between master data management, data integration and data quality services (DQS) in a single, familiar interface. This consistent look and feel, centralized user and role management and single sign-on brings speed and ease of use to the data management and data integration process. DQS of choice allows customers to implement the solution that best fits their domain vertical.
On March 12, Dell Boomi will host an exclusive live webinar, featuring an introduction to Dell Boomi MDM, and highlight how to assure data integrity across multiple applications and systems, while retaining data security with next-generation MDM. Registration details can be found here.

Application transformation and DevOps practices are two sides of the same coin. Enterprises that want to capture value faster, need to deliver value faster – time value of money principle. To do that enterprises need to build cloud-native apps as microservices by empowering teams to build, ship, and run in production. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 19th Cloud Expo, Neil Gehani, senior product manager at HPE, will discuss what every business should plan for how to structure their teams to d...

When we talk about the impact of BYOD and BYOA and the Internet of Things, we often focus on the impact on data center architectures. That's because there will be an increasing need for authentication, for access control, for security, for application delivery as the number of potential endpoints (clients, devices, things) increases. That means scale in the data center. What we gloss over, what we skip, is that before any of these "things" ever makes a request to access an application it had to...

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of So...

At its core DevOps is all about collaboration. The lines of communication must be opened and it takes some effort to ensure that they stay that way. It’s easy to pay lip service to trends and talk about implementing new methodologies, but without action, real benefits cannot be realized. Success requires planning, advocates empowered to effect change, and, of course, the right tooling. To bring about a cultural shift it’s important to share challenges. In simple terms, ensuring that everyone k...

DevOps is speeding towards the IT world like a freight train and the hype around it is deafening. There is no reason to be afraid of this change as it is the natural reaction to the agile movement that revolutionized development just a few years ago. By definition, DevOps is the natural alignment of IT performance to business profitability. The relevance of this has yet to be quantified but it has been suggested that the route to the CEO’s chair will come from the IT leaders that successfully ma...

It’s surprisingly difficult to find a concise proper definition of just what exactly DevOps entails. However, I did come across this quote that seems to do a decent job, “DevOps is a culture, movement or practice that emphasizes the collaboration and communication of both software developers and other information-technology (IT) professionals while automating the process of software delivery and infrastructure changes.”

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and microservices. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your conta...

DevOps theory promotes a culture of continuous improvement built on collaboration, empowerment, systems thinking, and feedback loops. But how do you collaborate effectively across the traditional silos? How can you make decisions without system-wide visibility? How can you see the whole system when it is spread across teams and locations? How do you close feedback loops across teams and activities delivering complex multi-tier, cloud, container, serverless, and/or API-based services?
