Celebrating Our 2020 Boomiverse Community Award Winners

We’d like to celebrate some of the fantastic collaboration and inventiveness seen in the Boomiverse this past year — and what a doozy of a year it was! Thanks to the resilience and encouragement of our Boomi Community members, we saw some amazing accomplishments in 2020. Together we met challenges face on and came out on top. Our user groups fully shifted from in-person gatherings to completely virtual meetings, allowing even more connections to be built around the globe.

Boomiverse Community Highlights of 2020

Here’s a quick recap of some of the fantastic highlights from 2020:

  • We’ve officially launched our Leader program. Now community members can directly impact the growth and development of their local user groups.
  • The Boomiverse grew by 18,336 members in 2020. Welcome newcomers!
  • User groups reached six continents, that’s doubled from 2019! And in the fall they went Out of This World.
  • It was a year of collaboration for the Boomiverse. We participated in community events at Dell Tech World Experience and VMUG Virtual Connect.

Our First Customer-Hosted User Group!

Big shout out to Boomi Community Champion Brian Brinley, Senior Technical Lead of Integration and Technology at Qlik, for being our first community leader to host a Boomi User Group! Back in November, Brian brought together some amazing speakers and discussed everything integration with a group of close to 100 attendees. Brian was truly an All-Star of 2020!

Let’s Take a Look at Some of Our 2020 Rockstars
