What do you like best?
Below are some of the highlights I can put forward:
# Lucid documentation of the product.
# Manual configuration of runtime engine is really awesome, for this one reason I could say BOOMI is an best product among iPaaS providers.
# Well to get into more technical aspects one having basic knowledge on different systems can get adopted to this BOOMI very quickly because you have best documentation to move on.
# Even one who is beginner to programming concepts of OOPS can get things done in a quite easy manner.
# Best part here I can put forward is that this product moved out of box now! by adding a "custom connector" concept where in a developer can try to connect to different systems by coding himself apart from inbuilt provided connectors.
# Community is another noticeable part where in you can get enormous knowledge of the product from "Knowledge Center", "Forums" .
# I couldn't stop myself in endorsing product team as they provide additional section "Ideas" where in you can post an idea of your choice which you want this product to implement and based on number of votes given and Boomi Experts reviews, your idea can be taken into account and accepted to backlog and you can see that gets published in the future releases. (I created some ideas where in they added it to the product as an enhancement)
#This is my only choice to implement integration scenarios in a minimum time and monitor in an easy manner.
What do you dislike?
# From a customer perspective I could say the build is done in hours and zero maintenance too but @ higher pricing.
# Based on fast moving IT world Boomi should also adapt in implementing new authentications techniques and standard connectors.
# For now this supports Groovy and JS as built in scripting languages, additionally I prefer to add some more built in scripting languages.
# Importing JAVA Classes into boomi is a bit tricky for now, but this is taken to backlog for easy user interface implementation and will be provided in future release.
Above are some points in my perspective, but with present capabilities also we can somehow achieve our requirement goals to get them done.
