Boomi SaaS: Is This the End of the Software Approach to Integration?

Folks, it looks like Boomi is working to build a better mousetrap. But don't take MY word for it!

"With a significant customer base to build on and all the right partnerships in place, it's no surprise that the Boomi On Demand beta has been a success so far," said Dennis Callaghan, Analyst with The 451 Group, a technology industry analyst company focused on the business of enterprise IT innovation, in his report. He continued in the report, "Boomi On Demand has the potential to redefine SOA from the customer's perspective." This comment appeared in an independent report, titled "Boomi shifts to on-demand model for SaaS/on-premise integration," published on November 7, 2007.

And from Dave:

David Linthicum, an analyst at ZapThink, stated, "Boomi solves SaaS integration by deploying an integration solution on the same platform, the Internet. This solution provides enterprises looking to find SaaS integration solutions with a better and more cost-effective alternative to traditional enterprise integration solutions. The use of integration technology over the Internet just makes sense as many IT resources move from inside to outside of the firewall."

Boomi's full bell-and-whistles press release, available here, takes aim and fires at "traditional enterprise integration software" as we know it. I quote:

As the acceptance and popularity of SaaS applications has continued to rise dramatically, traditional enterprise integration software has become the Achilles heel of the SaaS industry. Traditional integration software products are inconsistent with the values of SaaS in terms of cost, complexity and time to implement. Boomi On Demand offers the first complete integration solution delivered in an on-demand model, breaking the barrier to SaaS adoption for companies of all sizes and marking the end of the software approach to integration.

These are some pretty strong statements. Any thoughts or comments?
