Boomi, the intelligent connectivity and automation leader, today unveiled its vision for hyperautomation and the future of business, along with key product announcements, at its annual digital user event, Out of This World 2021 (OOTW). Through its undisputed category leadership and focus on business growth, Boomi is catapulting the industry towards the future of connectivity and automation. The company has connected more than 189,000 unique endpoints to date, and has over 18,000 customers processing more than 4.8 billion integrations every month on its revolutionaryBoomi AtomSphere™ Platform.
During the keynote, Boomi CEO Chris McNabb discussed the critical need for connectivity and automation to enableintegrated experiences – a vision that Boomi announced in late 2020. Integrated experiences are truly connected and engaging experiences that empower organizations to drive strategic advantage, customer loyalty, and satisfaction. They are only achievable through an organization’s ability to instantly connect everyone to everything, anywhere. Yet, integration remains one of the most dire challenges IT leaders face today in their cloud strategies. According to a global survey Boomi commissioned from Vanson Bourne, 55% of organizations are struggling to modernize, transform, and innovate quickly enough. As another step in accelerating innovation, Boomi is doubling down on its vision and hitting the gas pedal on enabling the future of hyperautomated businesses.
According to Gartner®, organizations need to be nimble, flexible, and opportunistic as they evolve and adapt to changing economic, social, market, regulatory, and technology disruption drivers.1 As a result, organizations are focused on automating as many processes as possible … fueling the increase of hyperautomation initiatives. “Gartner estimates that more than 56% of organizations have an average of four or more concurrent hyperautomation initiatives underway, and leading companies have over 10 … Unfortunately, the IT function has been unable to fulfill all the demand for speed, efficacy, and digital business.”2 Integration patterns, practices, and technologies are at the heart of solving this challenge.
“As organizations continue to gain speed in their collective race to modernize and deliver seamless integrated experiences, the need to connect vast amounts of data, applications, people, and things has never been greater,” McNabb said. “Boomi solves some of today’s most important business issues, and is revolutionizing how organizations speed integrations, break down data silos, automate workflows, and connect everyone to everything, anywhere.Hyperautomation is the next step in that evolution, and we’re innovating now, so organizations can innovate for tomorrow.”
The components of hyperautomation go beyond traditional workflow automation to include artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML), structured process orchestration, automation through business rules, event-driven automation, the core components of integration platform as a service (iPaaS), robotic process automation (RPA), and more. At Out of This World, Ed Macosky, Head of Product at Boomi, announced new product and service offerings that enable Boomi’s hyperautomation vision, including:
