Over 80% of enterprise Business Operations leaders say data integration is critical to ongoing operations. 67% of enterprises rely on data integration to support analytics and BI platforms today, and 24% plan to in the next 12 months. 65% of organizations prefer to deploy data integration solutions from cloud platforms or hybrid clouds. Manufacturing is one of three industries that place the highest priority on data integration today. (Forbes.com)


Boomi offers two powerful mechanisms, Boomi Event Streams and Boomi Queues, for handling data flow and event-driven architectures. Boomi Event Streams is a high-performance, real-time streaming platform that excels in real-time processing and distributing data, enabling organizations to react and respond to incoming events or data updates promptly. It is designed for event-driven architectures, providing a seamless data flow across different applications and systems.

On the other hand, Boomi Queues offers a reliable and scalable approach for managing data flow, allowing for asynchronous processing and ensuring message durability. They are ideal for scenarios that require buffering, prioritizing, and managing the sequencing of data integration tasks. Understanding both mechanisms' strengths and use cases helps organizations leverage the most suitable approach for their specific data integration needs.

Boomi Event Streams: Real-Time Event Processing

Boomi Event Streams is a cloud-based, real-time event processing mechanism that enables capturing, routing, and processing events across different applications and systems. It is designed to handle high-volume event-driven architectures and provides a pub/sub model for real-time data streaming.

Key Features of Boomi Event Streams

  • Event-Driven Architecture: Boomi Event Streams is specifically built to handle real-time events, making it suitable for scenarios where immediate action is required upon an event occurrence.
  • Scalability: It can easily handle high volumes of events, providing horizontal scalability and the ability to process events in parallel across multiple consumers.
  • Event Filtering and Transformation: Boomi Event Streams allows filtering and transforming events in flight, ensuring that only relevant data is processed by downstream applications.
  • Dynamic Event Routing: Boomi Event Streams can easily route events to different applications or systems based on predefined rules or conditions.
  • Fault Tolerance: It provides fault tolerance and guarantees that events are not lost in case of system failures or network interruptions.

Use Cases for Boomi Event Streams

  • Real-time analytics and monitoring: Process and analyze streaming data in real time for business intelligence, operational insights, and decision-making.
  • IoT data integration: Capture and process data from IoT devices and sensors, enabling real-time monitoring and control of connected systems.
  • Real-time inventory management: Receive immediate updates on inventory changes, allowing timely restocking or order fulfillment.

Boomi Queues: Reliable Message-Based Processing

Boomi Queues, on the other hand, offers a reliable and asynchronous message-based processing model. It ensures that messages are delivered and processed reliably, allowing for guaranteed message delivery and fault tolerance.

Key Features of Boomi Queues

  • Message Persistence: Messages in Boomi Queues are persistently stored until successfully processed, ensuring reliable delivery even during system failures.
  • Guaranteed Delivery: Boomi Queues guarantees the delivery of messages, providing a reliable mechanism for exchanging data between applications and systems.
  • Scalable Processing: It supports parallel processing of messages across multiple consumers, allowing for efficient scalability to handle high message volumes.
  • Message Priority: Boomi Queues allow you to assign priorities to messages, ensuring that critical messages are processed first.
  • Message Filtering: You can apply filters to messages based on criteria such as content, headers, or metadata, enabling selective processing and routing.

Use Cases for Boomi Queues

  • Batch processing: Handle large volumes of data in a batch-oriented manner, ensuring reliable processing and reducing system load.
  • Order processing: Manage the flow of orders and ensure that they are processed in the correct sequence with guaranteed delivery.
  • Reliable integrations: Exchange data between systems reliably, even in scenarios where there are connectivity or system availability issues.

Choosing the Right Approach

The two Boomi data integration approaches, Boomi Event Streams and Boomi Queues have unique strengths and use cases. When deciding which approach to use, consider the following factors:

  • Real-time vs. Asynchronous: Boomi Event Streams is the ideal choice if your integration requires real-time processing and immediate action upon event occurrence. Boomi Queues should be your go-to option if reliable and asynchronous message-based processing is more important.
  • Volume and Scalability: Assess the expected volume of events or messages and choose the approach that can handle the scalability requirements effectively.
  • Reliability and Fault Tolerance: Evaluate the criticality of message or event delivery and consider the fault tolerance mechanisms offered by each approach.
