When ecommerce was the new, new thing, many technology pundits—who now would probably like to modify their predictions—saw its emergence as the death knell of physical retail. Without a doubt, it had a major impact. But who would’ve thought when Amazon.com launched in 1995 that in November 2016 it would open its first physical bookstore?
Will “serverless” be the new way of computing? When we look at the evolution of computing, it’s clear that we’re moving rapidly towards greater abstraction between the application developer and the underlying hardware.
My clients want to launch new technology capabilities that will rapidly deliver a competitive edge. Unfortunately, project backlogs and multiple priorities often slow the pace of innovation. Overworked and understaffed IT teams often compound this problem, resulting in employee turnover that makes it even harder for businesses to retain the best and brightest IT staff.
Today, Dell Boomi’s parent company, Dell Technologies, announced an agreement with Salesforce that extends the long-standing relationship between the two companies. As part of the agreement, Dell Technologies will expand the use of Salesforce’s market-leading customer relationship management (CRM) platform to Dell, Dell EMC, Dell Boomi, and VMware employees worldwide.
With the current popularity of the terms “cloud washing,” it’s good to start off with a basic premise: You can’t migrate a traditional on-premise application to a hosted environment like Amazon or Microsoft Azure and call it a cloud service.
As respective leaders in cloud ERP and CRM, NetSuite and Salesforce co-exist at many organizations. So it was no surprise that many visitors to the Dell Boomi booth at the SuiteWorld user conference in late April were joint NetSuite and Salesforce customers with a need to integrate the two systems.
What happens when an immovable object meets an irresistible force? The old riddle is relevant for many IT organizations sorting through how they put in motion their application modernization strategy.

The Boomi AtomSphere platform was designed and implemented from the ground up to be an elastic, multi-tenant, hosted platform. It is not a retro-fit of a traditional software solution where multi-tenancy is achieved via multiple installation instances.
Shadow IT is rampant and here to stay. The question is: How is your IT team adapting to it? In most sizable organizations, various business units have deployed cloud applications without IT’s knowledge and control. These shadow IT services range from simple document sharing apps like Dropbox or Google Drive to more sophisticated software for such functions as marketing or customer relationship management (CRM
Today we’re announcing the availability of the Spring 2017 release for Boomi, the industry’s most robust and comprehensive cloud-native, enterprise integration platform

In this age of smartphones, driverless cars, and artificial intelligence, it’s easy to think that EDI is old hat. The core technology is indeed quite old, dating back to the 1948 Berlin Air Lift, when suppliers and shippers needed to track deliveries of food and supplies to the parts of Berlin under Western control.
For high-growth companies, improving process efficiencies is critical. Manual processes and ad hoc work are viable with small, close-knit teams. But as an organization expands, poorly developed workflows quickly erode productivity and profits.
In Malcolm Gladwell’s book, The Tipping Point, Gladwell defines a tipping point as “the moment of critical mass, the threshold, the boiling point.” The tipping point can happen in virtually anything — spikes in crime, social migration, birth rates, product sales — and software integration complexity.
As long ago as 2008, 451 Research noted that “the heyday of the enterprise service bus may have come and gone.” Nine years later, it’s fair to ask whether legacy enterprise service bus (ESB) systems can possibly keep up with the data integration requirements of today’s enterprises.
At a recent banking roundtable hosted in London, participants were presented with two questions:
Business executives and chief information officers face more challenges than ever these days. They are dealing with a litany of issues as the pace of business accelerates and an ever-growing array of new competitors circle around them.

Digital innovation is disrupting industries at lightning speed and CEOs are feeling the pressure to deploy the right technologies as we enter the second half of 2017. While digital transformation (DT) stands at the forefront of many organizational priorities, it isn’t as simple as implementing one specific tool or technology. Each individual business has to determine its own pain points and priorities.
Have you noticed lately that virtually every new technology innovation, system, or application is “powered” by artificial intelligence (AI)? Is it really? Hmmm. I guess it depends on how much you want to water down the definition of AI.
Our CEO, Chris McNabb, recently wrote in a blog post that adopting a “cloud-first” strategy is a business imperative. Organizations must become experts in managing their cloud applications and data to compete in our hyperspeed and brutally competitive age of digital transformation.
Application integration is something that every company must eventually come to grips with. Maybe it’s pushing workloads to the cloud that brings integration to the top of the priority list. Sometimes it’s just the need to streamline internal processes and data flows. But one event is sure to create the need for integration — a merger or acquisition.
Meetings in space? Virtual assistants? Computers linked to our brains? This may sound far-fetched now, but in the future, these technologies could well be a reality — according to the next generation of workers.

Best Practices. Two words that raise the hair on the back of your neck, and sometimes your blood pressure. Everyone wants to talk about “best practices.” But sometimes there really is a method to the madness.

Thanks to DocuSign, there’s no more faxing, scanning and overnighting documents. Legal signatures are now transacted digitally, quickly and securely
Enterprises today face mounting pressure to deliver everything via digital channels: a better customer experience, increased customer retention, streamlined business operations, and just-in-time business intelligence. It’s an entirely new business model and to achieve it demands tight integration between business systems, processes and operations
The digital economy demands that enterprises consistently offer a superior customer experience across channels. To do this, integration becomes vital. But the integration environment is constantly evolving, adopting different technologies along the way. Some legacy implementations are often a byproduct of integration, which makes them inflexible.

It’s no secret that omnichannel B2B commerce is a must for small and mid-market manufacturers and distributors. They need to do everything they can to compete against larger rivals amid rising customer expectations. But barriers to entry have traditionally been high, requiring costly and complex legacy systems that are beyond the reach of many SMBs. Handshake, founded in 2010, is changing that equation.
This week at the annual Workday Rising customer and partner conference in Chicago Oct. 9-12, Dell Boomi is introducing a faster, more reliable way for organizations to onboard new staff and streamline the employee lifecycle.
For more than 30 years, businesses around the world have depended on EDI for their trading networks and ecommerce operations. EDI remains an indispensable technology, but many EDI products are showing their age. Some still require users to work with command-line or spreadsheet-like interfaces rather than modern low-code interfaces. And most are functioning as operational silos, disconnected from other key business applications and APIs.

Let’s explore the evolution of AI, why it’s relevant today, how Salesforce Einstein AI is enabling enterprises to use AI, and, most importantly, Boomi’s role in all of this.
Today nearly every enterprise needs to be a software-driven business to survive. And the enterprises that survive tend to thrive. Change is constant, failure rates are high, and when an enterprise genuinely meets the demands of its market, they often find themselves the only one left standing — or at least the only one with a sizable market share.
Slalom Consulting is a leading, purpose-driven company that helps organizations use technology to address business problems and build for the future. “Building for the future” often involves integrating with the legacy systems of the past.
