Boomi To Boom Via New Private Equity Owners And Roaring Innovation Engine
Boomi’s CEO Chris McNabb is striving to become a market leader in hyper-automation with innovation to enable “instant” connectivity between customers to “what they want” faster than ever before.
“We fully automated one country’s healthcare renewal cards during COVID in four days: the mobile app, human workflow, everything. So it was a no-touch digital transformation within a week,” said McNabb in an interview with CRN. “When I say, ‘Speed is everything,’—that’s a game changer. Because if people can’t renew their health card, they can’t get healthcare services during a global pandemic. … We’re now introducing intelligent connectivity where we can create and generate, in an automated way, connectivity to endpoints.”
The Integration Platform as-a-Service (IPaaS) superstar is now backed by private equity firms Francisco Partners and TPG Capital who are injecting new capital into the company to drive innovation, new hirings as well as some potential acquisitions, McNabb tells CRN.
“We need to continue to expand and grow this business in order for everybody: Boomi customers, Boomi employees and our new owners, to be successful. So a bigger Boomi is now here,” said McNabb, who has helmed the IPaaS standout for the past eight years.
At Boomi’s ‘Out of This World’ conference, taking place today, the Chesterbrook, Pa.-based company launched several new solutions to enable its hyper-automation vision including Boomi Event Streams, which is an event-driven architecture service that integrates event-based data into its platform to bring breakthrough speed and scalability to any hybrid IT environment.
McNabb talks to CRN about his company’s hyper-automation vision, new private equity ownership benefits, Boomi’s partnership plans with Dell Technologies, and his message to the channel partner community.
“[Boomi] is a tool that partners should have in your toolbox, and candidly, it should be on the top shelf of your toolbox,” said McNabb.
