With Boomi, IT managers can spend more time on innovation and minimal on maintenance through integration and automation. It connects SaaS apps faster with its pre-built integrations and automates manual workflows like provisioning and deprovisioning.

Boomi is a low-code platform that enables your IT teams to connect, automate, and manage IT processes. It is designed for all business sizes and offers a wide range of capabilities, including data integration, application integration, and B2B/EDI management.
Despite its multiple benefits, it lags behind due to certain limitations, such as it has limited features, it doesn’t offer a plug-and-play option to integrate directly with other platforms like Salesforce with a single click.
However, it's not a compulsion to continue with one tool; as an IT manager, you can always consider opting for a substitute to avail of full features that will cater to your IT team's specific needs. So, in this blog, we'll provide you with a list of alternative tools that can be a more suitable option than Boomi.
Below is a list of a few Boomi alternatives that will help your IT teams streamline the workflow through automation and integration.
Zluri, an automation and integration platform, enables your IT teams to connect various SaaS applications and seamlessly automate workflows. Let's say your team wants to automate the provisioning process. So, how do Zluri's automation and integration capabilities come into help?
Zluri integrates with your HRMS (Human Resource Management System) platform, such as Workday or BambooHR. So whenever a new hire joins, the details related to the employee, including the new hire's name, role, department, and position, will get updated on Zluri’s centralized dashboard from where your IT teams can gather the data to use it during provisioning.
Further, with Zluri, your IT team can trigger actions to automate the onboarding process whenever a new employee joins and grant them access to all the SaaS applications that they require to start their work with just a few clicks. For example, all the new joiners need to have access to Slack for communication purposes and to get all the updates through its channels.
So how zluri will do that? With Zluri, you create an onboarding workflow by clicking on “new workflow.”
Select the users, you can even select multiple users.
Further, based on the user's role, designation, and position you get a “recommendation app”, there you can select Slack or any application that you wish to grant access to, once you select Slack, you will get “in-app suggestion” you can send them invites to channels by adding recommended actions.
Further, you can edit action and enter the required details. This allows you to schedule the action to run the workflow upon new employee onboarding day. Once done, click on Add Task.
Now all you need to do is click on “run” or save in the “playbook” for future use. You can view the status of the workflow on the recent run tab.
Furthermore, you can set triggers ‘when,’ ‘conditions’, and ‘then’ actions present in the “automation rule” tab, this will automatically grant the new hires access to Slack based on the triggers that you set.
With Zluri, you can grant access to multiple employees at a time and can also re-use the same workflow multiple times and even customize it as per your requirements. By automating the workflow, you can not only improve employee experience by eliminating waiting period but also your IT team’s efficiency by automating repetitive IT tasks.
Zluri doesn't stop here; you can similarly create offboarding workflow by clicking on new workflow and then select users that you want to offboard.
Further, you can trigger actions and schedule the onboarding workflow. Once you are done editing actions you can directly run the workflow will allow your team to automatically revoke all the access and deactivate/suspend accounts upon an employee's departure. You can even save it as a playbook for future use and view the status of the same on the “recent tab”.
