Integration engines don’t always have to live on enterprise servers. Indeed, there are times when it make sense to leverage an integration engine that’s exists remotely, leveraged as a Service. Considering that integration is a complex and expensive proposition, the ability to deliver an integration solution over the Internet makes good sense consideirng that enterprises are now leveraging many Software as a Service (SaaS) applications.
Boomi takes this approach to integration, which provides the architect with the ability to create integration solutions they neither have to host nor maintain. Boomi’s approach makes a great deal of sense when creating integration solutions with third-party hosted resources, such as SaaS players like Salesforce.com, or when an organization requires B2B integration for linking business partner to business partner.
