Boomi World: Learn Key Insights for Adopting Emerging Technologies

Innovation is important to us at Boomi — both being innovative ourselves and helping our customers be innovative. We’re seeing a huge uptick of activity in areas such as IoT and blockchain, as organizations look to our technology to help integrate everything from data to devices, people, processes and beyond.

According to a survey of 500 IT professionals from cloud solutions vendor Sada Systems, artificial intelligence (AI), the Internet of Things (IoT) and blockchain are the three primary areas for emerging tech investments within enterprise organizations in 2018. And Business Insider predicts that more than 55 billion IoT devices will be in use by 2025, up from 9 billion in 2017 — with an overall organizational investment in IoT technologies of nearly $15 trillion.

Not only are these areas growing, but they are also related more closely than you might think. According to IDC, by 2019, 20 percent of all IoT deployments will have basic levels of blockchain services enabled.

There are numerous practical applications for emerging tech, and some Boomi customers are already using these innovations to provide services, improve business operations and drive towards digital transformation. At Boomi World 2018, November 5-7 in Las Vegas, we’ll be highlighting fascinating use cases and customer stories, providing clear guidance on how to integrate these emerging technologies and their data into your enterprise.

If something is that important, then an IT organization better do it well. What’s the best way to ensure that an IT organization does integration well? By establishing an integration center of excellence.

Integration centers of excellence turn out to be a key part of a larger transformation of IT and the IT organization’s relationship to business overall.

In this post, I’ll take a quick look at how IT is changing, what that change means for integration and integration centers of excellence, and how the Dell Boomi platform helps those centers of excellence deliver the integrations that digital transformation initiatives depend on.

Join us Wednesday, November 28 for a Boomi Webinar, "How CIOs Can Drive Digital Transformation in Their Organizations." Hear first-hand from CIO consultant and author Isaac Sacolick. Learn his insights about the changing role for CIOs.  

Emerging tech will be threaded throughout the conference content, but if it is an area of particular interest for you, you won’t want to miss these sessions:
