Dell Boomi announces launch of Australian-based cloud services

26 Jul 2017

Dell Boomi has announced the launch of Australian-based cloud services Boomi Atom Cloud and Boomi MDM Cloud.

The launch aims to add to the available deployment options for customers using Boomi to connect applications, manage data, and orchestrate critical business processes – between cloud platforms, software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications, and on-premises systems.

“In the 18 months since our launch into Asia Pacific and Japan, we’ve seen considerable demand for integration as organisations look to modernise their existing business environments, and invest in best-of-breed solutions better suited to modern hybrid application ecosystems or cloud transformation initiatives,” says Michael Evans, Dell Boomi APJ managing director.

Kelvin McCarthy, Flinders University acting associate director – information and digital services says, “Personalisation of the student, researcher and alumni experience is critical for Flinders University’s strategic success, and having a reliable and timely view of each constituent is essential to make that happen.”

“We’re increasingly using consumer-styled cloud services to provide a contemporary user experience but the risk of creating siloed environments in a cloud-based world is greater than ever,” McCarthy adds.

“By taking an MDM approach to data integration, we will be able to offer better functionality backed by a consistent view of the constituent.”   

The Boomi Integration Cloud platform underpins ‘The Connected Business’ where enterprises leverage key information and insights to be better, faster and smarter.

It supports all of an organisation’s application integration processes.

It features a powerful range of integration, data management and workflow automation capabilities that can be realised in a fraction of the time of legacy middleware technologies.

The Boomi Atom is a lightweight runtime engine that handles all the connectivity between applications and data sources.

The Australian-based Boomi Atom Cloud gives businesses the option of running processes closer to their data.

Chris McNabb, Dell Boomi chief executive officer says, “The influx of data generated in the digital era has transformed MDM from a luxury to a necessity.

“The Boomi MDM Cloud ensures companies in the region can remove disparity and seamlessly collect, analyse and use business-critical data to make more informed strategic decisions,” McNabb says.  

“This allows them to beat the competition by better understanding customer and stakeholder demand and delivering to those expectations.”

The reality of hybrid IT means that enterprises are faced with numerous new challenges, and opportunities, to proactively manage data across their business – a critical factor to success in a fast-moving and increasingly competitive global marketplace.

While integration platform-as-a-service (iPaaS) offerings have traditionally focused only on the movement of data between applications, there is an increasing need for one that can help organisations create simple workflows as well as govern, enrich and control data in real time as it moves between complex networks of cloud, mobile and on-premises applications.
