Dell Boomi has added capabilities to help enterprises take advantage of cloud computing and software-as-a-service (SaaS) to achieve greater enterprise efficiency while leveraging existing IT investments.

Dell Boomi AtomSphere enables customers to start using new cloud and SaaS applications and connect them to any existing applications. AtomSphere Spring 11, the newest version of Dell Boomi’s cloud integration technology, includes new capabilities for middleware connectivity, large-scale data management and migration, and anywhere integration monitoring. The new features simplify the move to cloud computing through easy integration with existing enterprise IT environments.

Dell Boomi AtomSphere is delivered as a service, which makes it simple for customers to use and helps them avoid the burden of installing and maintaining integration software or appliances. It also offers customers frequent software updates to keep up with the fast pace of innovation in SaaS and cloud applications because it is a multi-tenant SaaS technology.

AtomSphere Spring 11 includes these new features:

  • Legacy Middleware Cloud Gateway: A Java Message Service connector plugs into existing middleware solutions like MQ Series, Progress Software, TIBCO, and webMethods. This gateway lets customers audit and govern the movement of all data, enforce security of data prior to leaving the firewall, and access connectivity to over 70 SaaS applications. This allows organizations to integrate cloud computing and SaaS applications, while preserving existing middleware investments.

  • Change Data Capture: Using a unique cache-analysis approach, AtomSphere offers change data capture, which reduces the size of data sets processed by focusing on only changed data. This improves the transit of data between on-premise and cloud environments and is a fully-automated process, requiring no coding.

  • Large Data Processing Support: Customers can now carry out data integrations in a fully-automated process with no coding needed and no complex file splitting. AtomSphere Spring 11 is verified to support hundreds of GB files per atom. AtomSphere’s parallel processing capability supports terabyte-sized files.

  • Intelligent Optimization of salesforce.com Integration: Salesforce.com users can now check a box on the Dell Boomi connector and automatically implement the Salesforce.com Bulk API. This feature intelligently calculates the optimal batch size to send to salesforce.com, dramatically simplifying customers’ ability to move important data between applications and salesforce.com.

  • Anywhere Integration Monitoring: Users have expanded monitoring and management options with the new AtomSphere API. Available in SOAP and REST protocols, the API provides access for third party monitoring tools to Dell Boomi AtomSphere integration activity. Customers and service delivery partners with preferred management solutions can automatically streamline integration management, tracking and alerting into one view.

Existing AtomSphere customers have immediate access to features announced today. New customers can gain access starting at $550/month. For more information, visit http://www.boomi.com/.
