Boomi, a Dell Technologies business, announced on Wednesday it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Unifi, which provides intelligent data discovery, catalog, and preparation offerings built on a cloud technology stack.
The California-headquartered Unifi operates a development centre in Bangalore, India.
“Boomi continues to drive the industry and redefine iPaaS. With the growth of multi-cloud, edge, and hybrid IT, managing data has become an enormous challenge for enterprises,” said Chris McNabb, CEO, Boomi.
“This acquisition allows our customers to derive insights, deliver intelligence, and drive action from known and unknown enterprise data. For most customers, on average, between 60-73% of their data is unknown; that is a huge blind spot when transforming your business.”
According to Boomi, the addition of Unifi to its data integration platform breaks down the barriers of operational data silos and democratises the flow of information across the enterprise.
“At the core, these new capabilities bring self-service data discovery, catalogue, and preparation tools to empower business users providing a more complete solution to solve data integration challenges.
“With automation and intelligence, Unifi’s technology allows users to predict the context of the data in order to discover where data resides, understand its structure and meaning, provide a level of trust in the quality of the data, and gives them the capabilities to ingest the data into data lakes, business systems, and AI projects.”
“Boomi is further extending its leadership position with this acquisition by providing customers with an unprecedented, data management platform with pervasive AI at its core,” said Steve Wood, CPO, Boomi.
“Unifi Software not only enables data discovery and cataloguing, but also data preparation in one platform which is key to truly leveraging your data to drive business insights.”
“The Unifi team has worked hard during the past few years to create the leading intelligent data preparation and catalogue platform, identified as such by industry analysts, and we’re thrilled that Boomi has recognised our leadership,” said Sean Keenan, Co-Founder and VP of Product, Unifi.
