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.

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...

As the race for the presidency heats up, IT leaders would do well to recall the famous catchphrase from Bill Clinton’s successful 1992 campaign against George H. W. Bush: “It’s the economy, stupid.” That catchphrase is important, because IT economics are important. Especially when it comes to cloud. Application performance management (APM) for the cloud may turn out to be as much about those economics as it is about customer experience.
When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...

Software development is a moving target. You have to keep your eye on trends in the tech space that haven’t even happened yet just to stay current. Consider what’s happened with augmented reality (AR) in this year alone. If you said you were working on an AR app in 2015, you might have gotten a lot of blank stares or jokes about Google Glass. Then Pokémon GO happened. Like AR, the trends listed below have been building steam for some time, but they’ll be taking off in surprising new directions b...
The word—or rather, the contraction—is simple: DevOps. But DevOps, which refers to the increased communication and collaboration between development and IT operations, is an ever-changing, sometimes complicated term. While “dev” and “ops” used to be siloed into separate philosophies, practices, tools, and work flows, they’re merging into one. The result? A more efficient, reliable process and product.
