The tuning for the performance is not great and could be improved.

The product could be a little bit more user-friendly. The company needs to offer better documentation. The initial setup is complex. It is what it is. You have to deal with it. There's something missing with Salesforce platform events that they supposedly support, however, it doesn't work well with their cloud platform. It would be nice if they would get that working normally. They say they support it, and yet, it just fires multiple times. It's not reliable. You can't use it.

@reviewer991230  The multiple firing was fixed in the April Release Atom update 21.04.0

They have progressed from an ESP architecture, but they have not fully embraced all API design first methodologies. As a result, some features in those areas, such as API management, API gateway, API development, and API dashboards, are missing, but they are still a new product. Better documentation and more know-how knowledge would be appreciated. When it comes to technical support and designing, they don't have that growth rate. They are lacking in some streaming features, and messaging features from a listener's point of view.

@reviewer801690    Uhhh, there most certainly *IS* API management, API Gateways, API development and dashboards - you must be new to Boomi to say they are missing?
You can sign up for classes that will teach about these features that Boomi has had for YEARS.   Their documentation is extensive for API design and management.
In fact, it is trivial to convert a regular Boomi process to an API.   They make this very easy.
There are Developer portals and they support Swagger, etc.   
It is preferable to post answers that are accurate, instead of ones that don't portray the situation accurately, yes?

There should be more scripting possibilities. Boomi is essentially low-code/no-code — it's very graphically oriented. If you wish to maintain it, then you'll require more scripting language.

@reviewer1603431 They support Javascript and Groovy - you mean you want more languages than that?

They need to introduce more configurable functions to remove scripting or coding. Scripting should be minimized. It should have exhaustive functions. Currently, it lacks in this aspect.

It would be helpful if the solution offered some videos for novice settings. Boomi, as a solution, is quite complex for a new user. They need some videos for client implementation for new users. This is needed especially for how users can create connectors and how they can effectively implement the system. The solution is complex. There's a few items and features that are hard to understand. They should work to simplify the functionality so new users don't struggle. I haven't found any features lacking, so I'm unsure as to if anything is missing or if anything new could accentuate the current offering.

Boomi consists of several modules, and the API is one product that Boomi is definitely not up to par with. For example, Jitterbit has a better API management module. However, Dell is putting a lot of energy to make changes. There is a new release already now in December or in November (2019), and they're planning some more releases in 2020. But I would say if there is one module that Boomi is less advanced in than the competition it would be the API management. But it might be totally different mid-2020. Another point that could use improvement for Boomi is license pricing. If you don't know the pricing model very well, you might quickly end up paying more than you expected especially if you are growing and adding integrations. Again, it is different than the competition so it may be difficult to compare, but the pricing model could also clearly be simplified.

API management and security need improvement. It needs more capability on the API Administration like approval process, automated process, etc. Lots of enhancements are needed in the API portal so that the developers can view the definitions, try out the APIs, etc. Many features need to be added to the API analytics, with more drilled down analyses, and also on API security.
