Sonic ESB to Dell Boomi Migration

Client Details


  • The client is a multi-national financial company with HQ in Hong Kong.
  • Sonic ESB was used to integrate around 30 internal systems as well as external messaging such as SWIFT.

Project Details Or Problem Statement

The version of Sonic ESB was end of production support in 2013, and the company was facing increasing difficulties to maintain and support this system which was a key part of its IT landscape. The challenges include :

  • Customized programming for integration logic, and no proper source control tool led to fragmented and unmanageable source codes
  • Difficult to recruit staff with Sonic ESB skills
  • Sonic ESB development tool can only run on older versions of Window, which infringed the company IT and security policy
  • Slow HA failover and in-adequate DR design
  • No build-in services catalogue and management, and Excel is used to keep track of integration services, connectivity, consumers, producers etc.
  • Not support integration with cloud base applications such as Workday and Services Now
