When Disaster Strikes… Cloud Integration with Boomi Supports Resilient Systems
Date of Event: 21 Mar 2018
Natural catastrophe and extreme weather events have topped the list of perceived risks to New Zealand business environment. As IT teams are constantly under fire to respond promptly to the impact of natural disasters, and to keep critical on-premises systems online, they are often unsuccessful…
Co-hosted by Dell Boomi and Nikolai Blackie from Adaptiv, this event will be covering common integration anti-patterns which lead to failures and outages that are difficult to rapidly recover from, as well as best-practice approaches and strategies for organisations to follow if they want to ‘weather the storm’ of an outage and quickly recover once the dust settles.
In the most recent Gartner 2017 Integration Platform as a Service (IPaaS) magic quadrant 20 vendors went head to head in an Integration Royal Rumble reminiscent of 90’s WWF.
In this session we will provide an overview of three leading vendors in the IPaaS market, in the blue corner an IPaaS pioneer with a decades experience, Dell Boomi. In the red corner a heavy weight with origins in the mean streets of the open source community, Mulesoft. And somewhere in the middle a relative newcomer to the segment but no stranger to integration in the cloud, Microsoft!!!!
We will be comparing and contrasting the approaches taken to implementing common IPaaS workloads by each vendor and implementing a scenario in all three platforms to demonstrate capabilities and give you a peek under the hood.
