Important Aspects about Boomi AtomSphere Platform

11 August 2023

Boomi is a 100% cloud-native integration platform used for building cloud-based, hybrid, and on-premise integrations. It supports real-time integration that can scale on demand for high-volume requirements. It also facilitates extended master data management (MDM) and offers multiple platform extension capabilities. For efficient data transfer between the cloud and on-premise applications, the Boomi AtomSphere platform allows users to design cloud-based integration processes called Atoms—hence the name AtomSphere for their cloud integration.

To understand better, we have compiled the critical aspects of Boomi AtomSphere platform

  • Native connectors

To integrate source and target systems, the Boomi integration platform utilizes connectors, which are packaged as API drivers. Users can configure and utilize these connectors in the Boomi environment without requiring programming effort. Pre-built connectors are available for many cloud environments, such as Salesforce and Netsuite. There are additional connectors for all the major database management systems, such as Oracle, SQLServer, and MYSQL.

  • Templates and reusable components

For standard integrations, Boomi has prepared templates called Boomi Process Library. Users can download, install, and configure these templates for the integrated accounts. However, the designers of the Boomi integration platform had reusability in mind while designing the majority of its components.

Hence, developers can reuse and share some custom components with other developers for different applications.

  • Drag-and-drop UI

A key differentiator for Boomi is its straightforward user interface. This user interface is 100% browser-based and allows for quick drag-and-drop integrations. Little or no programming is required and users can log in from anywhere without special tools.

  • Hybrid Data integration

Boomi integrates almost any business application due to its hybrid nature. This facilitates a highly productive cloud-native environment that supports all applications and data integration needs in a diverse IT landscape.

Additional notable benefits include:

  1. Offers complete support for all essential integrations and communication patterns such as application-to-application, real-time events and data-driven web services, ETL integrations, and streaming services.
  2. Effective one-click deployment with a single, unified reporting console helps in application management and comes with a rollback and version control.
  • Efficient B2B management

Boomi’s well-known functionality is EDI management which helps nurture effective B2B communications.

  3. Swift, easy onboarding of trading partners that supports any transaction volume.
  4. Uses the same visual integration configuration and data mapping services of AtomSphere, thus avoiding confusion for the trading partners.
  • Enhanced API design and management

Boomi offers one of the most efficient methods to extract data from one application and shape it to the required format. The extracted data can be loaded into another application – known as ETL (Extract, Transform, and Load).

With ETL, the Boomi integration platform offers a highly scalable cloud-native platform that manages and empowers the database with API interaction. Its features include:

  1. Provides enriched customer experiences which satisfy industry-aligned data needs.
