The company is based in Berwyn, Pennsylvania, and was founded in 2000.Privately held Boomi was mentioned as a potential acquisition target after Dell rival IBM bought Cast Iron Systems earlier this year.Dell has been on the acquisition trail, but lost out recently in a bidding battle with larger rival Hewlett-Packard for high-end storage maker 3PAR.
