Apache Camel

Message brokering across different systems, with transactionality and the ability to have fine tuned control over what happens using Java (or other languages), instead of a heavy, proprietary languages.One situation that it doesn't fit very well (as far as I have experienced) is when your workflow requires significant data mapping. While possible when using Java tooling, some other visual data mapping tools in other integration frameworks are easier to work with.

Dell Boomi

Boomi is an integration platform. It will address integration requirements between applications, cloud or on-premise. Also, will allow you to integrate with vendors and customers via EDI or FTP for data transfers. Examples: - NetSuite/Oracle eBusiness Suite/SAP with vendors for manufacturing management and financial transactions- cloud to cloud integration(NetSuite to Namely/OpenAir/Concur, SalesForce to ERP)- on-premise to cloud: custom legacy apps that almost every company has can be integrated to cloud apps, making the transition to 100% cloud apps easier

Pros

Apache Camel

  • Camel has an easy learning curve. It is fairly well documented and there are about 5-6 books on Camel.
  • There is a large user group and blogs devoted to all things Camel and the developers of Camel provide quick answers and have also been very quick to patch Camel, when bugs are reported.
  • Camel integrates well with well known frameworks like Spring, and other middleware products like Apache Karaf and Servicemix.
  • There are over 150 components for the Camel framework that help integrate with diverse software platforms.
  • Camel is also good for creating microservices.

  • Boomi has a lot of built in connectors that make integrations faster and easier.
  • The tool is easy to use and has great visuals to help understand how a process works. There isn't a large learning curve.
  • Frequent updates to the platform.
  • New connectors are frequently added.
  • Great support documents and community.
  • Real-time integrations.

Cons

Apache Camel

  • I find the "seda" endpoint to be less obvious that it is doing multi-threading than Spring Integration's executor mechanism.
  • Integration with Spring Beans is pretty good, but I believe SI's is a bit better (for obvious reasons, both being Spring products).
  • SI's use support is probably a bit better/faster and I believe the user base is larger so that there are most questions/answers for SI on StackOverflow

  • Honestly, the user interface. It has a lot of room to improve to get aligned with our products it is working with. The design is intuitive, but somewhat clunky because of the interface. It seems to be about 10-years behind other products in this area. The UI is important, especially when you are trying to attract users that may not have a development background.

Dell Boomi has provided us with the ability to connect our campus together using our various existing platforms. There are many supported features and have yet to run into something that we cannot do. Its user interface is very intuitive which would allow users to begin developing fairly easily. There is a myriad of resources available

My IT and Finance teams have noted that setting up the tool is a breeze. Dell Boomi has never caused an issue during a system implementation that I am aware of. We are pleased with the tool and recommend others consider it.

The atom sphere takes a time to load, when I open a process or when I open a log. One more slow processing is when I import objects from NetSuite.
About the performance of processing, it looks like Boomi takes a time to initialize some things such as connectors before starting the process. This is also performance we have.

They are quick to respond. Sometimes I figure out workarounds before they respond, but I am impatient and try other options. They acknowledge issues and have a Suggestions portal, the knowledge base is helpful too.

Alternatives Considered

Apache Camel

We chose Apache Camel because it was lightweight, easy to get started with and because it had a groovy DSL since we were a grails shop when we started using it.

We had previously used Adeptia to integrate, and they were night and day. Boomi is easier to set up, easier to use, easier to monitor, and faster. We have also used other custom solutions for integrating, and they don't compare with the robustness, speed, and accuracy of Boomi.

Return on Investment

Apache Camel

  • Apache Camel is open source and Java based. So if your engineering team is strong in Java this could be a good framework to adopt.
  • Apache camel is open source.
  • Camel could be run on OSGi containers like Karaf or Fuse.

  • Boomi has very positive impact compared to other competitive tools. My clients are very happy that they can build their systems quickly and move data. Process development time is minimal and deployment is easy.
  • In my current project, within 6 months we were able to build processes and go live. Which was well appreciated and happy with their investment.
  • I do not find any negative impact to the business.
