How to Get Boomi Training & Certifications

Become a Boomi Certified Expert 

Most companies have IT teams managing various databases, legacy systems, and applications – both cloud-based and on-premises. All of these technological tools are fit for purpose and provide many benefits for the company. However, there’s a major problem – these systems can’t communicate with each other.

In order for these data sources to work more effectively and collaboratively for the company, they should be integrated, and a central integration platform is the smartest solution to look at.  Integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS) is the single platform that has the capability to address this integration deficit. It facilitates the collaboration of multiple data sources in hybrid environments, centralizes the monitoring, and standardizes the Integration development work. This is where Boomi shines and we’ll look at how to get resources trained and certified.

Boomi is one of the major players operating successfully in the iPaaS market. As evidenced by Gartner, Boomi is a leading player in their magic quadrant for enterprise integration. Being trailblazers in the field, Boomi has strengths in their platform as well as the supporting infrastructures like training needed to adopt the technology. The platform has capabilities for: 

  • Application/data integration 
  • API management 
  • B2B/EDI management
  • Master data management
  • Low-code workflow automation and application development

Boomi has been successful in aiding over 10,000 businesses in their bid to become commercially agile by combining various data sources and applications so that they can run smoother, faster and in a self-sufficient manner. In light of this growth they have built an extensive training network to help resources get Boomi certified.
