About the Services
Boomi AtomSphere is an integration platform as a service (iPaaS) that provides integration of any combination of cloud and on-premise applications without software, appliances, or coding. It was founded in 2000 and offers NUMBER data connectors to more than 20000 of its customers worldwide.
The platform supports real-time data integration and scales to meet high-volume needs in mobile, batch (ETL), and EDI environments. Boomi charges its customers based on the number of connectors applied and features include in the pricing plan.
SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) is a data integration tool from Microsoft. You have SSIS when you buy Microsoft SQL Server. Launched in 2005, SSIS works with a variety of sources and delivers it to the desired destination. It’s a mature product that is flexible, scalable, and reliable. It is ideal for small-scale data migrations to large-scale enterprise data warehouses.
You can design SSIS packages using Visual Studio with drag-and-drop functionality and then perform a variety of data integration scenarios. And this includes ETL, ELT, reverse ETL, data ingestion, replication, and more. SSIS provides a range of data connectors for SQL Server, Oracle, Excel, and other data sources. It can also work with structured, semi-structured, and unstructured data. There are also third-party providers of free and commercial SSIS components. This adds more connectors and transformations to SSIS.
SSIS comes together with SQL Server installer. And it needs installation and configuration by a skilled IT professional. Data resides on customers’ on-premise or cloud servers. So, they are in control of its security. But you can also deploy it in the cloud. So, the security and privacy certifications of that cloud provider are in effect.
Skyvia is a no-code cloud data integration platform which supports a big variety of data integration scenarios including ETL, ELT, Reverse ETL, data migration, one way and bi-directional data sync, workflows automation, etc. It was created by Devart in 2014 to boost data-related performance: cloud data integration, backup and management.
Skyvia offers more than 160 ready-made data connectors for dozens of thousands of free users, including 2000+ paid customers. It's easy to use, offers drag-and-drop interface and suits both IT professionals and business users.

Boomi connects to more than 90 sources, including popular data destinations: data warehouses and cloud applications. Boomi supports the following types of connectors: application, event-driven, technology, and custom. Developers can write their own custom connectors in Java using Boomi's Connector SDK. Connectors are also divided into two categories (Boomi- or partner-maintained) and categorized by connector classes (Small Business, Standard, Enterprise, Trading Partner).
Customers can deploy connections up to the number of licenses based on their subscription.
SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) comes with various data connectors. These data sources are compatible with ADO, .Net, ODBC, and OLEDB providers. Some of the popular ones include connectors for SQL Server, Oracle, and Excel.
You can also create your own custom connectors to connect to unknown data sources. You can do this by creating a custom data source component. This allows customers to extend its functionality. And connect to any data source they need.
Skyvia offers more than 160 connectors and the number is rapidly growing. Among these connectors there are CRM, accounting, email marketing, e-commerce, human resources, marketing automation, payment processing, product management, all major databases and DWH, flat files, etc. Customers can also leave request for creating a new data connector and Skyvia will prioritize building it without additional payment.
Boomi supports a set of prebuilt transformations through procedures called shapes (such as encryption/decryption, search/replace, test encoding, and combining documents) and lets users create custom preload transformations to convert source application format into the destination format.
When a process runs, the inbound connector in the Start shape retrieves the data within available types (database, EDI, flat file, XML ot JSON). The resulting data goes into the process as one or more documents. Documents move through the process steps sequentially, where each shape performs a specific task on the data and then passes it onto the next shape.
SSIS can handle data transformations in ETL, ELT, and reverse ETL scenarios. You can do transformation tasks like data cleansing, conversion, merging, and more. There are 30+ built-in transformations available in SSIS. And if you need something outside of that, code using C# or VB.Net to make your custom transformation.
Additionally, AI in Visual Studio can help you code faster. This is possible by using extensions like GitHub Copilot.
Skyvia is a full-featured ETL service that allows building data integrations with powerful transformations between multiple data sources. It is a no code solution with support for data splitting, complex expressions and formulas, lookups, and many more operations.
