Shifter of grey boxes Michael Dell has written a cheque for the Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) outfit Boomi.
The move is seen as Dell strengthening his cloud computing offerings. Boomi flogs an SaaS application integration platform that claims to reduce the cost and complexity out of integrating applications by allowing easy transfer of data between cloud-based and on-premise software.
Boomi’s technology solutions are widely used by Salesforce and marketing, financial, human resources, content management and service-desk management. Boomi manages millions of transactions a month and has completed tens of thousands of cloud integrations for hundreds of customers globally across a wide spectrum of industries.
Steve Felice, president, Dell Consumer, Small and Medium Business told us that for years, Dell has been working directly with our customers and SaaS leaders to understand the value cloud computing can bring. Now with everyone jumping on the cloud, Dell wants to make sure that it has the products in place to help them do that.
