Dell Software today announced that application integrations using the Dell Boomi AtomSphere® platform now exceed 1 million cloud-managed integration processes per day, enabling enterprises of any size, flexibility and scalability for their integration deployments. This milestone sets a new industry pinnacle for Dell Boomi in on-premise to in-the-cloud integrations and is up to three times that of its nearest competitor. In related news, Dell Boomi also announced today a strategic relationship with Wipro to drive “Cloud-First” IT strategies for enterprises. Since the 1980s, middleware has been the de facto solution in linking new applications to older legacy systems, often referred to as the “hub-and-spoke” model. It has also played a critical part in integrating and connecting multiple applications across the IT infrastructure. Dell Boomi has transformed this once rigid, complex and costly approach into an easy and fast distributed integration of cloud-based and on-premise applications, without requiring additional appliances, software or coding. Dell Boomi continues to sustain strong market traction with its new class of integration solutions, generating growth of an estimated 263 percent in integration processes executed since last year. In addition, Dell Boomi provides “production-grade scalability, in terms of endpoints and daily volume of data flow, as well as very broad support for public SaaS and IaaS vendors.” 1 “Traditional integration architectures based on hub-and-spoke models are no longer relevant and forcing all integration of the spokes or application traffic through one central hub simply won’t work anymore,” said Rick Nucci, founder and general manager, Dell Boomi. “In short, we’re witnessing the end of middleware as we know it.” The chase to the cloud has uncovered a significant mismatch between traditional middleware approaches with today’s “as-a-service” application environments. Clients using competing integration solutions have been exposed to costly and complex approaches, including rip-and-replace or buy-more-hardware strategies as well as expensive managed service engagements to do the heavy-lifting of application integration.
