Most Helpful Review
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
The iPaaS functionality is very mature. The browser based IDE is also very mature and stable.
The best features are that it is a cloud-based and a multi-tenant tool.
I really appreciate the on-the-go access through the browser and the B2B integration.
The Salesforce and NetSuite Application specific “connectors” provide a layer of abstraction on top of the SOAP-based APIs to streamline integration development.
Extremely flexible for any kind of integration between systems.
The connection between Facebook lead forms and MailChimp integrations is the most valuable feature.
The ability to connect web applications to trigger actions in another app after having enriched, formatted, delayed, grouped, and filtered is really valuable for many businesses.
There are more mature (dedicated) API management and master data management (MDM) solutions available in the market.
There are still some areas that need improvement. For example, when updates are going on, the product becomes very slow.
They should create a custom connector option. With this, they could improve where the user can create the connector, based on their usage.
There is no validation in the mapping profile custom scripting, such as IntelliSense or advanced error checking.
We encountered stability issues occasionally, one to two times a year.
Some apps are not available yet. For instance, a connection with Joomla! would be great. In general, all the most-used apps are available, but I bumped into Joomla! with a client.
Being able to share Zaps and organize them with teammates would allow sharing and refining scenarios and even combining steps that require different people's credentials.
Pricing and Cost Advice
The licensing model of Dell Boomi is based on a ‘pay-per-use’ model.
They do not charge by the number of people using the software (client-server model), but rather they charge based on the number of connections used. This makes it very cost effective.
The Platinum package is good for licensing, but I’m not sure about the cost and improvements.
Think your Zaps through to make sure you don't use more Zaps than you need.
There is a free plan that is, of course, limited. However, it allows you to understand and check true scenarios for a while.

The Boomi AtomSphere integration platform as a service (iPaaS) supports all your application integration processes – between cloud platforms, software-as-a-service applications, and on-premises systems. Your entire team has online access to a powerful range of integration and data management capabilities, that can be realized in a fraction of the time of legacy middleware technologies.
Zapier is a tool for primarily non-technical users to connect together web apps.
An integration between two apps is called a Zap. A Zap is made up of a Trigger and one or more Actions or Searches.
Whenever the trigger happens in one app, Zapier will automatically perform the actions or searches in another app in order.
Zaps are very lightweight and easy to set up. Zaps do not import or export old data (they only operate on new items created after the Zap is enabled). Zaps are also not kept in sync ("two way syncing") after the Zap is triggered.
Zaps are deceivingly simple if you're used to dealing with complex and difficult integrations. Their simplicity is what enables anyone to create them.
