Dell Acquires SaaS Player Boomi

Friday, November 5, 2010

Dell this week said it will acquire Boomi, which operates a service designed to simplify the integration of cloud services with premises-based infrastructure.  Terms of the deal were not disclosed.  Boomi is a closely held startup based in Berwyn, PA that offers a platform called AtomSphere, described as a software-as-a-service (SaaS) integration offering that eases data transfer between cloud and premises-based applications.  AtomSphere does not require appliances, software or development, according to Dell.

Boomi’s solution is implemented in a variety of cloud-based apps, notably Salesforce.com’s CRM suite, as well as a variety of business application services.  “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,” said Salesforce operations manager Tom Fox, in a prepared statement. According to Dell, Boomi’s technology appeals to customers and systems integrators by connecting data between premise and cloud-based apps to “ensure business processes are optimized, data is accurate and workflow is reliable.”  Dell also said that Boomi’s technology decreases integration time from months to weeks.
