At this crucial evolutionary juncture, enterprises must stay connected to maintain smooth operations. Unfortunately, obstacles such as the sudden pandemic hindered the workflow of organizations that failed to upgrade; a consequence of failing to modernize their functions and applications. In uncertain times, organizations need a stable, highly secure platform that performs beyond expectations. Only a few platforms fit the bill in terms of reliability. Of these, the Boomi AtomSphere platform stands out due to its supreme API capabilities that have raised the bar in the iPaaS market.

The following highlights the Boomi platform features and how it distinguishes itself from the other platforms in the market:

But why do enterprises require API management?

Typically, an API integration platform helps in API design, deployment, and maintenance. Every API management tool offers documentation, security, sandbox environment, backward compatibility, high availability, which is essential for modern enterprises. In addition, API management platforms also provide usage reporting. These are the standard set of tools.

However, a few API management platforms, such as Boomi, go further to provide a developer portal where the developers can obtain or share the APIs, which will help build some applications.
