Dell Boomi Places in the 'Leaders' Quadrant of the Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Integration Platform as a Service

February 4, 2014

Dell Software announced that Dell Boomi AtomSphere, a provider of Integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS) solutions, has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the "Leaders" quadrant of the Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Integration Platform as a Service.

According to a release, among the 17 vendors evaluated, Dell Boomi placed furthest in completeness of vision and highest in ability to execute.

"We believe being positioned in the 'Leader' quadrant by Gartner is important recognition of the feedback we consistently receive from our customers," said Chris McNabb, GM of Dell Boomi. "To take competitive advantage of the cloud, companies are desperately looking for ways to accelerate the development of integration flows between their various cloud, on-premises and mobile applications. Dell Boomi AtomSphere answers this need with a secure, easy-to- configure and easy-to-use solution that enables new integrations to be developed in hours or days, not months or years, improving productivity, achieving business agility and time to value."

Dell Boomi AtomSphere is a scalable, cloud-managed iPaaS, a 100 percent cloud-enabled multi-tenant platform that enables customers to connect any combination of cloud and on-premises applications without software, appliances or coding. Companies like Brady Corp. have turned to Dell Boomi to reduce development complexity and achieve significantly faster time-to-value compared to extending the use of traditional middleware solutions for cloud and mobile integrations.

"With this report, I feel Dell Boomi is being recognized for what we've known for a long time," said John Zur, Integration Engineer, Brady Corp. "Dell Boomi has enabled real-time integrations between our consumer-facing sites and applications back to our ERP system much faster than our previous on-premises middleware solutions. By distributing integration processing and centralizing management in the cloud, Dell Boomi AtomSphere delivers the responsiveness, scalability, and continuously improving technical capabilities we need to confidently accelerate our enterprise integration strategy. Our developers have immediate access to enhancements without the same limitations found in traditional on-premises integration platforms."

This is the first magic quadrant for iPaaS, marking the presence of a new market category that brings speed, cost and technology benefits over traditional integration middleware. According to Gartner:

Integration platform as a service (iPaaS) is a cloud-based way for directors of integration to procure, use and manage integration platform capabilities. iPaaS can help them reduce time to integration and move toward an operational expenditure model of funding integration technology acquisitions.

Use of iPaaS is expanding from small or midsize businesses (SMBs), to large organizations. At the same time, adoption drivers are expanding from primarily addressing cloud services integration (CSI) requirements, to other use cases, such as API management, mobile application integration with enterprise systems, and in some cases, even B2B and on-premises application/data integration.

Dell Boomi AtomSphere integration platform as a service (iPaaS) and Dell Boomi Master Data Management (MDM) solutions enable customers to connect any combination of cloud and on-premises applications without software, appliances or coding.
