Dell Boomi AtomSphere SaaS application integration platform handles transfer of data between cloud-based and on-premises applications -- and no appliances, software or coding is required.
Dell's new cloud integration division, Boomi, has introduced several new features to its enterprise platform, which helps companies move to cloud computing while not disturbing the production use of their existing IT.
AtomSphere Spring 11, launched April 26 as the latest incarnation of Dell Boomi's cloud integration strategy, features new capabilities for middleware connectivity, large-scale data management and migration, and "anywhere-type" integration monitoring.
The AtomSphere SAAS (software as a service) application integration platform handles transfer of data between cloud-based and on-premises applications—and no appliances, software or coding is required.
"Basically, AtomSphere is a universal translator that converts a proprietary data stream into something Boomi can manage, and then reconverts it out into a data stream other connected systems can handle," Rob Enderle, principle analyst of the Enderle Group, wrote in Charles King's Pund-IT report.
"The bigger picture, however, is how products like Boomi are redefining Dell as an IT solutions provider and moving them away from their low-cost PC roots."
Dell acquired Philadelphia, Pa.-based Boomi in November 2010.
Boomi founder and CTO Rick Nucci told this is his company's third significant release.
"We really are putting the energy into larger enterprises when it comes to cloud integration,. A lot of their middlewares were built before cloud was around. So the customers come to Boomi to leverage us as their gateway to the cloud."
Nucci outlined AtomSphere Spring 11's new features:
Boomi's platform is used by Salesforce CRM along with large enterprises in verticals such as marketing, financial, human resources, content management and service-desk management.
Boomi manages millions of transactions a month and has completed tens of thousands of cloud integrations for hundreds of global customers, Nucci said.
