Dell Boomi has added new features to its platform, including more comprehensive API management options. The company also provided details about its Event Driven Architecture (EDA), which allows customers to experiment with, develop and adopt event driven architectures.
The Dell Boomi platform now features an API Developer Portal, according to Solutions Review. This includes self-service options for consumers, such as a feature to discover available services. It also enables developers to manage applications themselves, register them and approve the use of APIs.
The Boomi API Gateway works as a governance mechanism, built on top of the Atom runtime distribution technology. This feature is useful for managing external APIs or internal microservices that have to be protected. This can be done in the cloud, at the edge of the network or on-premise.
API Proxy makes it possible for users to use the platform as a centralized mechanism for all Boomi or non-Boomi APIs and services. The API Proxy allows users to use third-party data and APIs.
Boomi also announced details about its new Event Driven Architecture solutions. Existing Boomi customers can use the solutions via a new EDA page. Dell Boomi already offers integrations for Amazon SQS, Microsoft Azure Service Bus services and RabbitMQ from Pivotal, but this portfolio will be extended. The EDA effort is focused on building a stronger ecosystem of partners, with vendors specializing in “brokers, event meshes, streaming and pub/sub-technology”.
Chief Product Officer Steve Wood said: “We are bringing conversational AI and business insights to our customers and partners, and making it easy to quickly take advantage of these new capabilities. Our API management updates are enabling our customers to expand their ecosystem and securely scale their business in the API economy.”
