ROUND ROCK, Texas, Aug. 22, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Dell Boomi™ (Boomi), the leading provider of cloud integration and workflow automation to build The Connected Business, announced the lineup of speakers and breakout sessions for the inaugural Boomi World 2017 conference for customers and partners. Scheduled for Sept. 20-22 in downtown San Francisco, Boomi World brings together the global Boomi community of innovators using the world's leading cloud-native integration platform to build connected businesses that run better, faster and smarter.
Registration is now open for the three-day event, featuring more than 40 informative sessions including customer case study presentations, as well as training and networking opportunities, and after-hours events.
Centered on a theme of "Accelerate," Boomi World offers insights into using cloud-native integration to speed business and IT impact. Boomi customers, product experts and independent thought leaders will share perspectives on how integration platform as a service (iPaaS) lets organizations connect applications and data far faster and more flexibly than custom-coding or traditional on-premise middleware. Workflow automation and real-time data exchange through Boomi increases speed and cost-efficiency across the organization to drive business advantage.
Underscoring the "Accelerate" theme and joining the speaker lineup is Michael Massimino, a former NASA astronaut who flew two Space Shuttle missions. In his keynote, Massimino will draw parallels between his career as a NASA astronaut, including Space Shuttle flights in 2002 and 2009, with the imperative for modern businesses to accelerate agility and gain competitive advantage through faster processes, insights and time to value.
