Dell Boomi Integration Platform: Fully Explained

Modern-day enterprises tend to grapple with the challenges and complexities of integrating new applications with on-premises or cloud-based systems. Boomi software or Dell Boomi AtomSphere, as it was previously known, is a wonderful iPaaS (integration-as-a-platform service) that enables developers to integrate applications using a simple drag-and-drop interface.

In this blog, we understand all about Boomi iPaaS, how it works, its features and benefits. We also look at how it empowers a company in its digital transformation journey.

What does a Boomi Architecture look like?

Dell Boomi Integration has a top-notch and adaptable architecture. A runtime that updates itself called “atom” is the foundation of the Boomi architecture. Atoms can be cloud-hosted and completely managed and scaled. They are also self-managed and hosted by the client.

If the client has requirements of both in-premise and on-cloud, a hybrid approach of atoms can be used. The Boomi "AtomSphere" is the collected control plane cloud-based web portal which is responsible for updating integrations.

Comparison With MuleSoft

When it comes to iPaaS (integration platform as a service), both Boomi and MuleSoft have been named by Gartner as top leading choices. Considering that BluEnt offers both, we thought we'd give you an understanding of what would suit you the best.

Both Boomi and MuleSoft are two heavyweights of the game when it comes to cloud-based integration. Both platforms aim to streamline the data flow, but they each have certain features and functionalities of their own.

With a user-friendly drag-and-drop interface and offering a low-code integration approach, Boomi works great for small and medium-sized businesses. With an extensive range of pre-built connectors and templates, Boomi clearly packs a punch.
