ROUND ROCK, Texas, March 11 — Today, Dell Software launched its next-generation Dell Boomi Master Data Management (MDM) that delivers a comprehensive set of features and capabilities in a single cloud-managed solution. This marks a fundamental shift: now mid-sized companies can take advantage of an MDM solution that simplifies data management, data integration and assurance of data quality—at a fraction of the traditional big-vendor cost.
Dell Boomi MDM offers significant realization of next-generation MDM as defined by The Data Warehouse Institute (TDWI) Best Practices Research, and it is a 100 percent cloud-based offering with multi-domain support, near real-time synchronization, bi-directional data flow and includes web service calls that support enriching and validating data.
“MDM tools based on software as a service (SaaS) and/or clouds are still relatively new,” said Philip Russom, research director for data management, The Data Warehousing Institute (TDWI). “Even so, there is a growing demand for and trust in cloud-based MDM tools and solutions. For example, a TDWI survey run in 2012 showed that 25 percent of organizations are planning to adopt cloud-based MDM within three years. This amounts to a potential growth rate of 20 percent, which is quite healthy given the current economy. So we can expect cloud-based MDM solutions to be in use by more organizations soon.”
Dell Boomi MDM is focused on four core steps:
“Given their complexity and cost, most master data management solutions are simply out of reach for midmarket customers,” said Chris McNabb, director of product management, Dell Boomi. “We’re offering these customers an accessible, easy to use cloud-managed MDM solution that provides short time to value to help ensure their success.”
For customers who wish to gain the maximum benefits of MDM, Dell Boomi provides seamless navigation between master data management, data integration and data quality services (DQS) in a single, familiar interface. This consistent look and feel, centralized user and role management and single sign-on brings speed and ease of use to the data management and data integration process. DQS of choice allows customers to implement the solution that best fits their domain vertical.
On March 12, Dell Boomi will host an exclusive live webinar, featuring an introduction to Dell Boomi MDM, and highlight how to assure data integrity across multiple applications and systems, while retaining data security with next-generation MDM. Registration details can be found here.

Researchers from the Suddhananda Engineering and Research Centre in Bhubaneswar, India developed a job scheduling system, which they call Service Level Agreement (SLA) scheduling, that is meant to achieve acceptable methods of resource provisioning similar to that of potential in-house systems. They combined that with an on-demand resource provisioner to ensure utilization optimization of virtual machines.
Experimental scientific HPC applications are continually being moved to the cloud, as covered here in several capacities over the last couple of weeks. Included in that rundown, Co-founder and CEO of CloudSigma Robert Jenkins penned an article for HPC in the Cloud where he discussed the emergence of cloud technologies to supplement research capabilities of big scientific initiatives like CERN and ESA (the European Space Agency)...
When considering moving excess or experimental HPC applications to a cloud environment, there will always be obstacles. Were that not the case, the cost effectiveness of cloud-based HPC would rule the high performance landscape. Jonathan Stewart Ward and Adam Barker of the University of St. Andrews produced an intriguing report on the state of cloud computing, paying a significant amount of attention to the problems facing cloud computing.
