General context

Ad hoc, point-to-point and manual integrations could not support Flinders University’s vision of a digital campus. Flinders chose Boomi for integration, data quality management, API management and workflow automation on a single platform.

Flinders University, a premier academic and research institution, provides education to more than 27,000 students. The university’s visionary initiative, “Making a Difference,” is underpinned by a five-year digital transformation strategy that includes moving up to 90% of its applications to the cloud.

Through a cloud-first approach, Flinders aims to:

*Deepen engagement throughout the student lifecycle.

*Deliver personalized and tailored experiences for its students and staff

*Provide seamless access to education through the channels of the students’ choice

Technological challenges

Flinders needed to modernize its infrastructure to better support the educational needs of its students. This meant finding a cloud-native integration platform that would:

*Support the migration of its student management system and financial software from on-premises to software as a service (SaaS).

*Quickly connect a wide range of cloud and on-premises applications accessible through online, offline, and mobile channels

*Ensure that data is up to date across all applications so you can accurately map student journeys


Flinders is using the Boomi platform to enrich and optimize student experiences, from recruitment and onboarding, to graduation and alumni relations. With Boomi, the university has been able to:

  • Reduce integration development time by at least 2 times
  • Support rapid deployment of more than 130 integrations
  • Optimize onboarding and reduce administrative costs
  • Establish an integration center of excellence
  • Provide students with anytime, anywhere learning capabilities.

Comments on the case

  • Boomi’s integration capabilities ensure that our applications work simultaneously and consistently so that students can learn through a modernized environment that can be accessed on their own terms – on mobile devices, at any time and from any location.

  • Boomi is critical to our ability to rapidly deploy new digital services, as well as to respond more easily to any technological or market changes. It is helping us implement integrations much faster and with much more flexibility than we ever thought possible.

How Dell Boomi helped

Boomi’s low-code, cloud-native platform enabled the university’s six-person integration team-whose members had no prior integration experience-to quickly augment and successfully replace many legacy integrations with Boomi’s flexible connections.

Using Boomi, the team was able to rework and replicate 130 integrations between the student management system, its financial system and other applications, including learning management, human resources, customer relationship management and admissions systems.
