Boomi integration platform enables the coexistence of the University’s 700 applications to accelerate delivery of new services and enable IoT project

Sydney, Australia – March 19, 2019Dell Boomi

(Boomi) has announced it has been contracted by the University of Melbourne (UoM) to enable the coexistence of the institute’s 700 applications using the Boomi integration platform. Boomi has helped the university create a centralised data synchronisation hub that provides granular visibility into data quality and has subsequently accelerated the rollout of new services. The real-time availability of this critical information will help UoM transform its facilities into smart campuses powered by the Internet of Things (IoT).

UoM provides education to more than 50,000 students enrolled across its seven campuses. Its vast set of applications – including a Financial and Employee System (FES), Student Management Systems (SMS), online Learning Management Systems (LMS), as well as a slew of specialty systems – are part of a hybrid environment.

UoM deployed the Boomi integration platform-as-a-service (iPaaS) to link up its IT environment. Boomi is the only truly cloud-based integration provider and was selected for its ability to support a diverse organisation. The university is using the Boomi Master Data Hub (MDH) as the foundation for its data synchronisation. These comprehensive capabilities are managed through Boomi’s easy-to-use interface, which provides full visibility over and control of all information flowing through the platform.

Having established a modern integration framework, UoM has been able to commence its transition to smart campuses. Critical to this project is space utilisation, and so the university is in the process of installing smart sensors in selected buildings. Boomi will collect the data generated by these sensors and transfer it to the smart campus data repository, along with information from other relevant applications. These insights will allow UoM to determine how and when facilities are being used in order to optimise space and other student services.

“Data consistency is a major challenge for organisations investing in digital transformation – especially in an industry like higher education where student attrition and policy issues place constant pressure on Australian universities to demonstrate the outcomes they can deliver,” said Nick Lambrou, Managing Director, Australia and New Zealand, at Boomi. “With the Boomi platform at the core of its applications tying all data together, UoM has developed the comprehensive scaffolding it needs to drive its digital evolution, allowing it to introduce new services sooner, while preparing its facilities for the next phase of its growth strategy.”
