Pros: Development environment.

Cons: Cost

Overall: We've used Dell Boomi to support Re-pricing and Order management integration over the past several years. Our processes submit approx. 1-2 million API calls a day to our ERP and marketplace channel management platforms. The most important thing I can say about Boomi is the peace of mind it brings...Once you get a process built and tested...it's just works! I worry about all of our other platforms going down or cringe when new updates are released. I've never had that worry with Boomi. They perform monthly releases, and I've never had a release break one of our processes. Given the range of tools available to construct integration processes, there is almost always a way to accomplish a process. Typically the challenge becomes picking the best way to solve the problem with the various options available. One thing that has drastically improved over the past year or two is the information/knowledge base and participation of the Boomi user community. Several years ago if you had questions on how to do something, it would take a while to figure things out. The new Community platform is thriving with lots of very useful information to help beginners get started building processes. The only negative I've ever had and continue to have is cost. Depending on the number of connections (distinct endpoints) you require for your integration needs, things can get expensive quickly. This is one area in which I wish Boomi would get creative. Even if you are using basic local DISK connections or simple HTTP endpoint connections (as opposed to branded connectors such as SF.com, or Netsuite), every endpoint will cost you an additional $300/month. Some pricing-flexibility on bundling certain types of connectors would be a great improvement. For this reason I deducted some stars in the "Value For Money" rating. However, I'll end by re-iterating my opening comments. That cost delivers a huge benefit...Boomi is a robust, stable platform, and you will achieve piece of mind for your integrations that run within it.

Pros: Ease of use, simplicity of the programming paradigm, and the vast capabilities of the product.

Cons: It doesn't implement everything in a given spec (e.g. I can't access the full request/response for a web service call; I can't use all features of standard functionality like SMB; etc.) The tool needs to mature a bit more so that it can be leveraged more in a variety of enterprises.

Overall: Boomi is a point-and-click tool that has many features across a broad functional spectrum (e.g. Enterprise Service Bus, Web Service Gateway, Managed File Transfer, Messaging). You use a drag-and-drop interface to create processes, with no coding required (though you CAN use Groovy or JavaScript when needed).

What can you do with it? You can: create and consume web services; perform database CRUD operations; get/send files over FTP/SFTP; read/write JMS queues; read/write to file systems (Linux, Windows, Mainframe, etc.); send/get email; read/parse/create EDI; etc. Nearly everything you do in an IT shop to integrate systems and applications you can do via Boomi.

Boomi isn't ideal for everything. E.g. complicated ETL, voluminous file transfers, complicated processing, etc. But for the everyday IT tasks, Boomi is the perfect middleware tool.

Simple tasks can be done in minutes with Boomi: read from a database to create a report and email it; call web services; web-service enable an existing process; create an enterprise web service that orchestrates a process; poll directories looking for files; poll JMS queues looking for messages; copy data between two applications; convert data from one format to another; in short - anything involving integrations between systems or applications can be done in Boomi.

At my company we're starting to use Boomi for all middleware activities - it's fast and easy to create processes that perform a variety of tasks. Boomi does the heavy lifting, we just configure shapes, connect them together in a process flow, and then push it to production. Sometimes we have to use code (Groovy or JavaScript) to do complicated things that the tool doesn't natively do (e.g. date manipulation/calculation, call out to a Java Library to create a Java Web Token), but otherwise it seems to do everything we want to do. Nearly anything you can do in Java, .NET, python, perl, etc. you can do in Boomi with little or no coding. Boilerplate development (like creating data services, extracting data to files, running scheduled tasks, etc.) can all be done in minutes or hours in Boomi rather than days or weeks in traditional programming languages.

Boomi doesn't replace all of your tools - but it replaces 80% of what you do with those tools and it takes 20% of the time to do it. I'm convinced that it's the future of traditional IS development.

Recommendations to other buyers: It's fantastic - keep it moving forward because this tool can replace 90% of what we do with traditional programming languages! Improve the standards support - that's going to be KEY to your success!

Pros: Common development environment along with version control and revision history.

Development environment on cloud can enable a developer to become productive from day one.

Single place deployment and complete code life cycle management.

Common Dashboard to monitor the integer landscape components.

Automated housekeeping of logs and temporary files.

Cons: Memory management is a bit tricky, no option to allocate memory to specific integration processes.

Multi threading not very efficient and controllable.

Configuration Parameter management through process extentions is a bit complex and confusing.

Dependency on internet for development activity. In case of any network issue developer cannot continue with the development.

Overall: Overall experience is good but I still see a lots of improvement points for the development environment. Also memory and multi threading options appears a bit tricky with Dell Boomi. Checkpointing of the processing would add lots of value to the product in terms of recovering the the half way processed transactions.

Recommendations to other buyers: It is good that we have development enironment in cloud, but there must be a way to have a development environment locally as well which can be used for development when you are offline. And code can sync when you become online again. Currently all the integration processes work withing the Atom process and we don't have control on the individual integration processes, like start / stop or allocating resources to individual integration process running on an atom. It would have been better if we would have had individual process monitoring from the server itself for over utilization of resources. These individual integration processes should not have dependency on Atom Process and Atom process should be used only for the communication with the AtomSphere.

Pros: Ease of use

Cons: Not sure

Overall: We have been using Boomi and doing great. I like the way we can break down data into small units of work. It simplifies how to handle multi-conditional pathing and the unit of work level.

Currently, I am working at SFCG, using various tools to build integrations into Oracle CX products. When we started kicking the tires on Boomi and in the training and development since that time, I've tried a series of processes out that have given me trouble in other tools. Below is a brief recap of my experience and growing admiration for the way in which this tool has made my job easier.

My first goal with using Boomi was to connect to an instance of CRM On-Demand (a task that can on other platforms be a time-consuming endeavor). What I found was a useful wizard, pictured below, with a series of pop-up steps to follow.

In other tools, I have spent more time in trying to define the schemas, than actually completing the maps that use them. Boomi reduced that time from my process. This is one small example of many demonstrating how my teammates and I feel as if we were working in black and white and are now working in color with Boomi AtomSphere. Tasks I've taken for granted are complex, time-consuming and meticulous are simplified, streamlined and transformed with powerful features like Boomi Suggest - a handy feature that leverages the collective intelligence of the Boomi community to suggest which fields should be mapped in a Data Map.

You don't need to take my word for it, another member of our team, Li Mo started building out an integration to Oracle Sales Cloud, using the SOAP API Connector. He was able to do a complete integration to insert a record into the Account entity, and it took about an hour and a half.

Note: it had been about 1 month since we both actually took the training courses. I believe we choose an additional tool that plays to the inner strengths of working in the cloud, and I can not wait until I start full blown to continue development on new integration projects using Dell Boomi AtomSphere.

Recommendations to other buyers: Try it to see if it fits your needs.

Pros: Ease of use; web access

Cons: Slow with large numbers of records to transfer; little access to underlying Salesforce SOQL and SQL

Overall: We are using Boomi in an on-premise installation to integrate other software. It is adequate. The drag-and-drop interface web-based interface is easy-to-learn and generally responsive. Monitoring and scheduling are fine, though error-reporting is via system-generated emails that must be reviewed manually or via email rules (you need to buy an additional "Connector" from Boomi to send your own emails).

Dedication to the GUI interface limits flexibility -- code and SQL statements can be so powerful, but you cannot get to them. There is "Groovy", a Java-like scripting language, but figuring out how and where to call it is difficult -- the in-process and "document" touch points are not intuitive and are not well-documented.

Customer support is generally responsive but not always helpful. Their first question is "send me the URL of your cloud interfacing definition", and when we explain that we are on-premise (required for database security) then answers become tough to get and more vague.

We get TIMEOUT errors when moving tens-of-thousands of records from Salesforce to SQL. Boomi's response is that the error is from Salesforce so it is Salesforce's problem. However, we did not get these errors from our previous integration tool from Bluewolf. Unfortunately, Bluewolf does not integrate with OpenAir, so we had to change tools. We work around the TIMEOUT by changing schedules and changing the interface approach to moving fewer records.

Overall Boomi does the job and we have made it work -- I have no delusion that there is a great tool available for this difficult job of cross-system integration. My interpretation is that Boomi is focused on web service integrations with small message sizes, and the on-premise solution is an afterthought.

Recommendations to other buyers: Cross-system integration is not easy!

Pros: As a fast moving IT world Boomi also adapting in implementing new authentications techniques and standard connectors. Compatibility of Applications & Systems:develop custom connectors quickly and easily via visual, drag- and Workflow. Many connections available OOTB Database or HTTP client are rather a trivial example but connectors available for Salesforce, NetSuite, JIRA and such many systems which enables quicker development

Cons: There are few things like coding where your beginner/typical/average programmer would find useful. Importing JAVA Classes into boomi is a bit tricky for now, but this is taken to backlog for easy user interface implementation and will be provided in the future release. From a customer perspective, I could say it's little costly.

Overall: Dell Boomi Make the Integration of on-premise Application and cloud-based Application very easy that save's much time of the organization and make the integration much faster and very efficient. There are many things in Dell Boomi like components, security of data, set up own atom cloud, data storage, and hell many things. This is the best software that u can rely upon it.

Recommendations to other buyers: My little advice is that for a big business organization the cost is good but for enterprises, its little expensive and people are lacking interest on groovy in Dell Boomi.

Pros: Performance; the community; the smooth, all features included development platform.

Cons: A number of features take quite a lot of time to develop in the platform. The lack of XPath search and map functionality is tough to handle. Web service integrations (the core business of my company) feel rough and rudimentary, a lot of work still needs to be done on this field

Overall: Having experience with different integration platforms got me up and running in Boomi relatively quickly. However, due to the differences, the learning curve was rather steep still. There are a number of non-intuitive features, that require advanced knowledge of the platform to get right.

Fortunately, there is a very active and very knowledgeable community of other Boomi users, always willing to help out those new to the platform. Whenever there are problems with functionality, the community is the go-to place to get it resolved.

The disconnect between the designer platform and the execution engine is a key feature in the astonishing performance of the processes. As far as process performance goes, Dell Boomi is the best experience that I've had. Both when it comes to processing large amounts of data in a small process, as when it comes to processing incidental data in large complicated processes, Dell Boomi never fails to amaze me.

Recommendations to other buyers: There's a number of key features that would greatly help the business case of my company for using Dell Boomi. I hope that these features can be worked on and released sooner rather than later.

Pros: Easy to Use

In built Connectors

Cons: 1) Date Function support is limited.

2) Lacks Dynamic process generation support - cannot read a database, obtain a result and then launch 1-N processes based on the results on a query. This forces us to fallback to DB Stored procedures for dynamic processing.

3) No field-level encryption option.

4) Improve dynamic handling of values on processes (e.g. Retry configuration) and Connection (e.g Timeout)

5) Have capability to integrate with Source Code Management tool

6) Ability to run a process with "Listener" starter in Test Mode

7) Email Alert generate if the deployed service or Listner is down.

8) JMS Message Selector usage in Atom Queue.

9) Ability to receive email alert by process

Overall: I have very good experience of this tool on Application and Data Integration side. I love the way Boomi release and roll out the connectors and patch versions in all environments. However, I see some improvement needed on Application integration side related to Atom Queuing full compliant with JMS spec 2.0 version and also, some improvement needed on the Administration side for example there is no start/stop functionality on deployed process. Monitoring and management of Boomi process like if source or target system is down then automatically stop the bommi process and start it up automatically when target systems comes online.

Recommendations to other buyers: NA.

Pros: Seamless Integration, Support, Help Documentation, Community, Robust Runtime, Flexible orchestration style of development.

Cons: Minor bugs are taken care in each and every month release maintenance.

Overall: I have used Dell BOOMI in various enterprise level integration over the cloud.

Across the different technologies that are available, this is the best one which was proved.

I worked in providing solutions to different to different clients and clients are very much happy with the continuous integration.

Support was all time helpful and one must not forget community as well.

I'm sure that BOOMI will rule the cloud space in the coming years as well reason being the security aspects are handled perfectly. This was the only reason that firms look for their data.

B2B integration is made easy and can be done without any difficulty.

Help documentation was awesome and it was illustrated in a lucid way.

There are live examples to get started as well.

Finally, it's worth your money for seamless integration.

Recommendations to other buyers: One should go for this product for seamless and continuous integration.

Pros: Drag and drop canvas, easy to use.

Cons: Flexibility

Overall: I started working in Boomi with no prior IT experience. I walked into an already complex business model and some pretty complicated processes. I was able to quickly catch on and make myself an important piece to the 'Integration' team.

My company has premier support and this team was very helpful at times when trying to build something difficult.

Even as someone who is not familiar with coding (javascript/groovy) the ready-made components make it easy to use. Although sometimes, you will need to use scripting and there's no getting around it. But all that is pretty simple once you get the hang of it.

The ability to extend processes to different environments is also great, allowing you to test a process in multiple worlds. There are lots of 'out of the box' connectors that make the transition a breeze.

Lately, Boomi has been really picking up the slack on their releases. They rolled out a new community and Ideas page. The reference page has been given a facelift as well.

If only they made certification cheaper, I would think of getting one.

Pros: Dell Boomi provides many features to support integration development. It's easy to transfer data from one system to another with the use of default connectors and simple mappings. Boomi also provides your with the tools for more complex integrations. For example you can use business rules and decision shapes to validate your data and transfer it to different endpoints. Error handling and monitoring is also really thought trough.

Cons: The performance on the Boomi Cloud is not optimal. However, you can active an Atom Worker by contacting your Boomi rep to speed things up a bit. I only heard about this after a while and I wonder why the performance is not enabled by default.

Overall: The software enabled me to create many integrations in just a few weeks instead of months. You don't have to write any code which speeds up the developing, testing and deploying of your integrations.

Pros: Easy to use, intuitive. Simple to set up schedules, deployments, tests. Changes are easy to make, test and rollback. Copying map functions that were recently added!

Cons: Limitations imposed by account features and cloud atom. Search can be slow, drop-down loading can also be slow for document properties for example. Adding identifier instance also collapses entire json tree which takes many clicks to reopen. Logs aren't the greatest, not always as detailed as it could be and are temporary.

Overall: Boomi is a fantastic tool to use for integration between systems. Reusable components speeds up development and implementation, changes are easy to propagate through all relevant processes and the UI is very intuitive and easy to learn. Features are limited by willingness to upgrade the account but a lot can still be accomplished with just the standard set of features available. A great adaptable platform that can handle all sorts of mess with an active community forum that provides support and help as much as possible and regular updates with features suggested by the community itself is leading this product to even better times ahead.

Recommendations to other buyers: Better logs.

Pros: Easy to learn

Easy to configure local atoms

easy to make any changes

Amazingly quick support team

Knowledge stored community

Cons: Content and the cost of certifications.

Overall: This is my first middle ware. I am enjoying the work i do now than ever. Boomi simplified the number of lines of codes that we write to integrate/automate any process.

I started learning this on my own, i never though it would be that easy to learn, of course by referring the documents that has been provided.

During the certification course as well, i find it easy to complete. However, for me, the certification course is not worth for the money that I pay, Mainly because of the content. The expectation was it will cover all the components available with Dell Boomi but it is not.

Over all, i am enjoying the integrations that i am configuring with Dell Boomi. The recent updates in community as well as Boomi platform is really good.

Recommendations to other buyers: Add certification course details in the community mailers or separate mailer.

Pros: Integration that u can rely upon. Quick to get a simple integration going.

Some of our integrations took just a few hours to build.

Transformation of profile format with ease.

Flexible tool and access anywhere in the world.

To have fewer departments and more profits in less time then u can go for Dell Boomi.

Cons: Not easy to troubleshoot failures. Unable to easily access payloads and components.

Dev mode is painful with a limit of 10 records.

Running processes even on dev mode takes a long time. Takes at least 20 seconds before starting to process.

Overall: I am amazed with this integration tool it is very easy and flexible tool. Too many people believe that only technical guys can learn this kind of integration tool but trust me, I am a MBA guy who does not have any technical skill but I learned this very effective and right now I am handling too many projects.

Recommendations to other buyers: This Dell Boomi software is not meant for a small organization it's too expensive for them. I recommend Dell Boomi Team to slice the cost and make usable even for small enterprises.

Pros: Ease of use.

Cons: Nothing yet.

Overall: Having focused on middleware and process automation for quite some time, I have had the opportunity to review and use a number of platforms over the years. These range from incredibly cumbersome to overly simplistic and virtually unusable; on-prem to cloud and hybrid models.

For years¿ integration/middleware vendors have advertised that their product can be configured by the business analyst although this has been a reach at best. Boomi realizes this goal while also providing the ability to generate complex time sensitive integrations that leverage user defined code where needed.

Boomi provides a comprehensive and growing support community to complement their internal product support that has been nothing but stellar. Response is quick and robust.

While there is always more to be learned, Dell's Boomi is the product that we all envisioned but until now has been unavailable.

Pros: Was able to use the API connections with Boomi to integrate requests from acquired newer customer facing software to our existing legacy cloud systems to be able to handle the offerings without creating a new backend. This worked. It didn't always work great and it took some setting up, but once it was working it generally stayed working.

Cons: Huge learning curve. You will need to leverage Dell's partner offerings and train up Boomi experts within your organization through Dell Boomi classes. Reading through and interrupting the Logs is speciality all its own aside from the knowledge needed to setup the interfaces in the first place. If it breaks, you will likely need help in fixing it.

Pros: Development of complex integrations takes days, not months.

Cons: Some of the more advanced features should probably have better or maybe just more examples in the documentation.

Overall: Hello,

I've been working with Boomi for about 3 years now. When I started working with it, I thought "this is going to be an uphill battle". And it was, though it was not necessarily the tool itself. The integration endpoints all have their particulars and peculiarities that can be time consuming. Business processes can also make for some head scratching.

However, the robustness of Boomi can usually make fairly straightforward work of most integrations, and I have come to love the "creative" solutions that are sometimes needed. Still, compared to building integrations from scratch, Boomi amazes me at how fast we can go from dev to deployment.

I wouldn't mind seeing more fleshed out descriptions of functions in the documentation, but the community is a great source of information when the documentation feels ambiguous. And it's an active community, not a dusty old forum forgotten by time, so that's a real plus.

Pros: The system is very reliable as I can run processes through it routinely without having to be concerned about uptime. Once configured it works every time. It is great being able to plug in Boomi to some of our other automated systems and having feedback as to what happened with the file. Our teams are able to easily update existing processes without disruptions.

Cons: It can be time consuming to setup when creating a new complex process.

Overall: Boomi is an essential product for our company that is needed in order to deliver for our customers in a timely fashion. I know that when I need Boomi it is up running and will reliably processes time and time again. We are able to make updates on the fly without disruptions which is critical in the heat of the moment.

Pros: Simplicity and flexibility. No matter what the integration pattern is, Boomi is able to handle it. Also, the learning curve is not very steep allowing our developers to get up to speed and be productive very quickly. Boomi is a very overlooked integration engine in the HL7 space. The light footprint and reliability of the atom runtime are critical to our use case.

Cons: The cloud based iPaaS UI is still maturing and lacks some of the minor features that may be utilized in other engines.

It also provides automatic testing of various code modules. Monitoring and Event tracking also are the useful features.

Cons: Dell Bhoomi is costly to use as various packages have different features. Advance features fall into the costly one.

Overall: Various type of Integration activities like Monitoring and deployments.

- Moving to multiple molecules requires a separate license purchase. Existing package only allows a certain threshold

Overall: - Being able to design,develop, implement and execute processes in a short timespan

- Rolling back production processes with bugs is quick and efficient

- Version control

Pros: The visual way that boomi is presented allows for easier explanation for our non-technical executives, it allows us to show them the complex processes visually so that they can get a better understanding of what the process entails. The new boomi flow is also very exciting and we can't wait to leverage it for our organization.

Cons: Sometimes the new products and features can be overwhelming and not communicated as well as I would like.

Both the product as the organization is really flexible and agile to work with.

Cons: the fact it is still growing and within my region I only had one partner to choose from, I decided I like the product but not the partner, Boomi came around and expedited the onboarding process and training of a partner of my choice, how bad turned to good.

Pros: Quick, easy, intuitive. Constantly improving the UI and experience. Monthly updates to the product based on community input. Setup is easy.

Cons: Traditional programming logic such as loops and counters are not straightforward. No script debugging or advanced code support. No external repository support.

Overall: Boomi is a great solution for building integration and automation solutions. There are many connectors to choose from as well as generic SOAP, REST, etc. connectors. Boomi is intuitive and easy to pick up. Hosting processes in the cloud or locally is a breeze. Boomi has a growing, engaged community of users and is constantly adding features based on community requests.

Pros: Versatile, intuitive, and allows for fast build-out of processes.

Cons: Finding information while troubleshooting can be a challenge. Not be able to "step through" a process in real time presents some challenges as well, though minor.

Overall: We use Dell Boomi as an integration tier between a cloud-based POS and half a dozen on-premise systems. We evaluated a few systems before deciding on Boomi, and we couldn't be happier about our choice. The product is consistent, intuitive, and has provided everything we need. The interface provides all the features that users "just want", that may not be functionally critical but that makes the product so much easier to use. For example, being able to globally rename objects and move/rename folders, and have the effect instantly propagate throughout the system -- without breaking anything! and with very little effort -- is extremely beneficial. Building processes with the shapes provided are intuitive and quick. And making it all accessible via an externally-facing REST API makes it versatile to any external system with which we want to interface.

On the project that we're using Boomi with, Boomi has been the best part of the project! While other components have proven unreliable and time-consuming to build, Boomi has proven fast to implement and very versatile.

Pros: Not much to manage in terms of the environment setup. i.e. the Java runtime aka "Atom" or "Molecule" (group of atoms) are managed for you. System upgrades are managed for you.

The development area is all web based (e.g. via use of Chrome).

Once you have past a bit of a learning curve, the approach is fairly straight forward and simple.

Forum is responsive with people helping.

Support tickets are addressed quickly.

Cons: Somewhat locked in to keep using the tool, once you start using Boomi.

The process documentation is via screen prints into word documents.

There isn't a way to export processes to keep a copy of process outside of the Boomi system.

Performance of larger scale ETL (say half million data rows) might be worse by factor of three compared to other ETL tools.

Development environment limits you to small tests (100 records/documents) .. Have to deploy to dev atom to test larger scale tests.

Overall: We have implemented a few processes and web services using this product thus far.

We have a large backlog of processes using other technology to move into Boomi environment.

Pros: Ease of use, many connectors to link multiple applications

Cons: PRICE!! I'm having a hard time getting my executives to approve licenses for different applications because of the cost of the connectors.

Overall: The only downside is the logging in production could be better. Sometimes It's difficult to troubleshoot an issue with integrations in Prod. Other than that, I'm impressed with how well the product can move data from one app to another and the power it has in decision making and data manipulation in the middle-ware.

Recommendations to other buyers: Logging could be better in Production. Sometimes it's difficult to troubleshoot an issue without re-creating the problem in the test environment.

Created integrations in a short time without code required.

Pros: What's not to like about Boomi. It's so easy to use, 0 coding required, the platform is on the cloud, it provides out of the box connectivity to most platforms/saas, easy to maintain and very active community. All these factors contribute to make this iPaaS the perfect solution to for any user with common logic.

Cons: The only downside that I can think of, is the cost. But you will realize it's worth it once you save time on developing.

Overall: Managed to create integrations, in a very short period of time. Boomi made iPaaS accessible to anyone.

Comments: We have been using Boomi for many years. Boomi is currently utilized for many integration processes in our Org. We love the ease of use and ease of building processes and maintaining them.

Some features that we would like to see are :

1. Ability to maintain process versions and ability to revert back to an older version

2. Ease of troubleshooting an issue with a process

3. Ability to segregate processes for sandbox/testing vs production.

The ability to get so much done with minimal code finally delivered drag and drop development.

Pros: Productivity, technical capability, self documenting (to a point), power, large number of end point connectors. The Community has been vital to my success.

Cons: Kinda hard to acquire the Zen of Boomi. The documentation is descriptive but not instructive. Courses explain the basic uses of shapes but not how to solve integration problems. Use cases and examples are required to acquire the Boomi Zen

Overall: The ability to complete integrations that I would not had the time to complete without Boomi.

Good documentation

Cons: Some bugs with the UI but nothing serious

Overall: At first sight boomi might seem complex and lacking some features. But once you practice it a little it becomes a really handy tool for your integration purposes.

We're planning to replace existing custom-written integration processes with boomi to streamline our data flows and have better control and visibility on our IS stack.

Would definitely recommand to anyone in need of integrating cloud solutions with on premise software.

The documentation is particularly convenient and the community is quite active which allowed me to find an answer to my questions without having to reach their Customer Support.

Cheers,

Pros: Relatively easy to use and you do not have to be a "programmer" to produce a great process.

Cons: I have not come across it yet.

Overall: I was tasked to create an in-house process which would convert billing data from a comma-delimited format to a standard EDI 210 Motor Carrier Invoice format allowing us to eliminate the use of the EDI "middle man" we had contracted with two year prior.

Using the on-line Boomi documentation and the on-line "Community" forum guided me 90% through the process. After a call to Customer Support and with their response the process was completed. I did encounter an issue renaming the file(s) to be sent but Boomi Customer Support leveraged their internal resources to figure out the problem and provided an alternate solution which I have put into place.

We are now using Boomi to convert the billing data to a standard EDI 210 format, giving each file a unique name and transferring the files seamlessly to our customers through the automated scheduled process. Love it!

Recommendations to other buyers: If the on-line documentation is not enough to provide the information you need you can always chat, call, or log a case with Boomi Customer Support.

Cons: When a user got registered for training, they receive an email says Training accounts will be created in 24 hours. But there are cases where it took 3-5 days.Send an inquiry email and setup. When we are introducing Boomi to a new developer/pears this step makes them start with a negative mindset towards the product. But later down the road they are liking it.
