Who should you choose and why?

âś‹ Most important consideration

  • Both Workato and Boomi can support most integration scenarios. However, if your integration scenarios are concentrated on SaaS applications, then Workato is a better fit.

🤔 Strongly consider Workato over Boomi if

  • You have relatively few technical users in your organization and want to involve business users in the work of making integrations.
  • If you have integration scenarios spanning across modern SaaS solutions like Salesforce, Slack, ServiceNow, Netsuite, ADP, etc.
  • You want a better set of pre-built solutions available to you for common integration scenarios.

🤔 Strongly consider Boomi over Workato if

  • If you are looking at building ETL pipelines, Boomi is better known for building data pipelines.
