Dell Boomi AtomSphere Takes Adaptive Approach to Application Integration Accelerating Customer Time to Value

Dell Software today announced the spring 2014 release of Dell Boomi AtomSphere® integration platform as a service (iPaaS) featuring an adaptive approach to application integration designed to accelerate customer time to value. Leveraging AtomSphere’s unique single-instance, multi-tenant architecture to gain deep insight into customer usage metrics, the integration platform now offers key capabilities that evolve over time as customers evolve. Usage of Dell Boomi AtomSphere iPaaS has grown by 13x year over year, from 35 million integrations last year to 450 million integrations today.

“As an iPaaS provider, we measure our success by our ability to accelerate customer time to value and overall customer success,” said Chris McNabb, general manager of Dell Boomi. “Our single-instance, multi-tenant architecture offers us a unique ability to aggregate customer usage information. This has allowed us to create innovations such as Boomi Resolve and Predictive Assistance, which ensure our customers can reduce time to value and optimize their return on investment by utilizing our integration platform to its fullest potential. Our iPaaS also includes new capabilities native to our platform, including a SOA Dashboard, message queuing and JSON and XML conversion to reduce the complexity and increase productivity for customers building modern enterprise integrations.”

The new AtomSphere capabilities include:

  • Boomi Resolve: Speed Customer Time to Value

Boomi Resolve helps users quickly solve common errors thus improving customer productivity and increasing ease of use. Easily accessible through a tab on the Boomi AtomSphere interface, Boomi Resolve automatically lists possible solutions in order of relevancy and includes links to full articles for further explanation and suggested resolution.

Boomi Resolve is powered by a continuously growing repository of links between errors encountered in the AtomSphere iPaaS and articles in the Boomi User Community knowledge base. As a result, Boomi Resolve continues to become more intelligent and helpful as commonly found issues are identified and recommended solutions are provided. As of April 2014, 16.7 million total error messages had been captured, and the 100 most common errors account for 80 percent of all error messages.

  • Predictive Assistance: Patented Innovation for Customer Success

Dell Boomi has been awarded U.S. Patent No. 8,589,207 related to Predictive Assistance. Predictive Assistance integrates near-real-time customer usage metrics, such as amount of data flowing through integrations and active updates to integrations, with Dell Boomi’s customer relationship management (CRM) system. The Dell Boomi Client Services team proactively reaches out to customers whose usage metrics indicate that an engagement can increase their success and optimize their use of the Boomi integration platform.

  • SOA Dashboard: Low-latency Process Metrics At a Glance

The SOA Dashboard provides an at-a-glance status report of the performance of an organization’s low-latency, mission-critical integration process services. Process performance is flagged red/green/yellow, and drill-down capabilities within the SOA Dashboard help users identify and resolve the problem.

  • Message Queuing: Simplify Enterprise Integration

Dell Boomi native message queuing spares customers the expense and complexity of purchasing, implementing and supporting a standalone messaging solution. Unique to Dell Boomi, native message queuing provides a number of key capabilities, including:

  • Point-to-point (queue) and publish/subscribe (durable topic)
  • Support for local, on-premises Atoms and Molecules as well as the Boomi Atom Cloud
  • Ability for external applications to push or pop messages on or off a Boomi queue

According to John Zur of Brady Corporation, “Queuing is essential functionality for our broad spectrum of simple-to-complex integration scenarios. The Dell Boomi team listened to our requirements for queuing and has delivered. This new feature provides substantial productivity and time to value benefits as I don’t have to invest in separate tools to take advantage of message queuing.”

  • JSON/XML: JSON Support and Conversion Between XML and JSON

Enhanced support for and bidirectional conversion between XML and JSON, the two standard data formats used for developing web, mobile and social applications, enables customers to accelerate application integration across these formats.

Boomi by the Numbers

  • Platform growth: 13x year over year, from 35 million integration processes per month last year to 450 million integration processes today.
  • Customers: 2000 global multi-national and mid-sized enterprise customers use Dell Boomi AtomSphere.
  • Atoms in use: Nearly 7,000 Atoms have been deployed in production.
  • Boomi Suggest momentum: Number of mappings indexed: over 9 million, compared to 4 million last year.
  • Customer satisfaction: Dell Boomi AtomSphere customer renewal rate has risen to 94 percent today, well above the industry average of 90 percent, and points to the success of Predictive Assistance.

Before becoming a developer, I was in the high school band. I played several brass instruments - including French horn and cornet - as well as keyboards in the jazz stage band. A musician and a nerd, what can I say? I even dabbled in writing music for the band. Okay, mostly I wrote arrangements of pop music, so the band could keep the crowd entertained during Friday night football games. What struck me then was that, to write parts for all the instruments - brass, woodwind, percussion, even k...

Node.js and io.js are increasingly being used to run JavaScript on the server side for many types of applications, such as websites, real-time messaging and controllers for small devices with limited resources. For DevOps it is crucial to monitor the whole application stack and Node.js is rapidly becoming an important part of the stack in many organizations. Sematext has historically had a strong support for monitoring big data applications such as Elastic (aka Elasticsearch), Cassandra, Solr, S...
There's a lot of things we do to improve the performance of web and mobile applications. We use caching. We use compression. We offload security (SSL and TLS) to a proxy with greater compute capacity. We apply image optimization and minification to content. We do all that because performance is king. Failure to perform can be, for many businesses, equivalent to an outage with increased abandonment rates and angry customers taking to the Internet to express their extreme displeasure.
Right off the bat, Newman advises that we should "think of microservices as a specific approach for SOA in the same way that XP or Scrum are specific approaches for Agile Software development". These analogies are very interesting because my expectation was that microservices is a pattern. So I might infer that microservices is a set of process techniques as opposed to an architectural approach. Yet in the book, Newman clearly includes some elements of concept model and architecture as well as p...

Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, ...

Keeping pace with advancements in software delivery processes and tooling is taxing even for the most proficient organizations. Point tools, platforms, open source and the increasing adoption of private and public cloud services requires strong engineering rigor – all in the face of developer demands to use the tools of choice. As Agile has settled in as a mainstream practice, now DevOps has emerged as the next wave to improve software delivery speed and output. To make DevOps work, organization...
This is a no-hype, pragmatic post about why I think you should consider architecting your next project the way SOA and/or microservices suggest. No matter if it’s a greenfield approach or if you’re in dire need of refactoring. Please note: considering still keeps open the option of not taking that approach. After reading this, you will have a better idea about whether building multiple small components instead of a single, large component makes sense for your project. This post assumes that you...
