Dell acquires cloud computing company, Boomi

Boomi offers the industry’s only pure SaaS application integration platform that takes the cost and complexity out of integrating applications by allowing easy transfer of data between cloud-based and on-premise applications with no appliances, no software and no coding required.

Boomi’s technology solutions are widely used with the world’s leading cloud-based applications, including Salesforce CRM, as well as marketing, financial, human resources, content management and service-desk management.

“Using Boomi has driven incredible results not only for the sales team at Global Forex, but for the company at large because of the value of having a single dashboard of customer data,” said Tom Fox, Salesforce Operations Manager, Global Forex. “With AtomSphere, we were able to eliminate 95 percent of our integration costs and now have a completely transparent platform that allows us to analyze customer data real-time.”

Working directly with customers and through its growing network of channel providers, Boomi manages millions of transactions a month and has completed tens of thousands of cloud integrations for hundreds of customers globally across a wide spectrum of industries.

“For years, Dell has been working directly with our customers and SaaS leaders to understand the value cloud computing can bring and the issues customers face when contemplating this paradigm shift,” said Steve Felice, president, Dell Consumer, Small and Medium Business. “Twenty-six years ago we helped accelerate the move to client-server computing; today we’ll help drive a similar transformation with customers turning to the cloud to drive costs down and innovation up.”

Today’s announcement represents another step by Dell to build a technology portfolio for growing businesses seeking the benefits of web-based computing while addressing one of the top barriers to cloud adoption – managing and integrating cloud-based applications with existing applications and databases.

As businesses embrace SaaS, Boomi helps customers deploy application integrations in record time with dramatically lower costs and realize productivity and efficiency improvements over traditional models.

Terms of Dell’s acquisition of Boomi were not disclosed. The purchase is subject to customary closing conditions.
