Dell acquires cloud-integration firm Boomi to add to its ERP stackNovember 3, 2010 No Comments
After teasing the media about a possible cloud acqusition, Dell surprised the industry by acquiring a rather smaller SaaS integration outfit Boomi. Boomi is a Pennsylvannia-based company that offers Software-as-a-Service application integration platform. The platform enables integration of cloud-based applications with premise-based applications without the use of appliances or coding. Its integration technology is called AtomSphere.
The acquistion perfectly fits into Dell’s strategy to create a stack of software and hardware to become a major cloud player. Earlier this year Dell had tried to plunge into storage domain by acquiring 3PAR – which was poached by HP.APPLICATION INTEGRATION, CLOUD COMPUTING
