Dell buys SaaS integration company Boomi

With Boomi, Dell could expand its cloud options

Dell on Tuesday acquired a software-as-a-service integration company called Boomi as it tries to expand its cloud computing offerings.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed, and the company did not immediately comment on the acquisition price.

Boomi provides services to simplify deployment and management of cloud-based applications alongside existing on-premise applications. The company's on-demand integration platform, called Atomsphere, allows for easy transfer of data between applications run on-site and hosted services such as Salesforce.com's CRM (customer relationship management) software.

For Dell, the acquisition is a step ahead in building a stronger portfolio of products as more businesses move toward Web-based computing, the company said in a statement.

Earlier this year, Dell tried to acquire storage firm 3Par as a way to gain a foothold in large enterprises moving toward cloud computing, but lost the bidding war to Hewlett-Packard. Earlier this year, Dell acquired storage vendors Ocarina Networks and Exanet.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
