Boomi's platform is used by Salesforce CRM along with large enterprises in verticals such as marketing, financial, human resources, content management and service-desk management. Boomi manages millions of transactions a month and has completed tens of thousands of cloud integrations for hundreds of global customers.

V/OE allows IT administrators to manipulate all the elements in the data center from a single Web-based console, provisioning and reprovisioning them as needed.

In the English-speaking countries like the U.K., Australia, New Zealand, Ireland ... we had a real tough time the first two or three years doing it on our own. But now, things are starting to take off."
