Chesterbrook-based software-as-a-service cloud integration platform maker Boomi announced Tuesday that it intends to acquire Unifi Software, which has locations in California and India.

Boomi was first founded by Rick Nucci, who went on to cofound Guru Technologies, where he’s now CEO. Nucci grew Boomi to about 30 people and sold it to Dell in 2010.

Since then, the Saas company has grown to about 1,200 employees worldwide, with about 400 employees in its Chesterbrook office and about 25 employees in a Center City office, a spokesperson said.

Unifi offers a cloud-based suite of self-service data tools that can help users find and use data.

“The acquisition expands Boomi’s industry leading integration and data management platform to accelerate successful, data-driven insights for customers,” the company said in a statement about the acquisition.

Managing data has become a challenge for enterprises, Boomi CEO Chris McNabb said.

“For most customers, on average, between 60 [to] 73% of their data is unknown,” he said. “Unifi has a team of passionate, talented and motivated professionals and I am excited to welcome them into the Boomi family.”

Unifi’s capabilities will bring self-service data discovery, catalog and preparation tools to help users solve data integration challenges, Boomi said. The West Coast-based company’s technology allows users to predict the context of data to see where it resides, understand its structure and meaning, provide a level of trust in the quality of the data, and allow them to ingest the data into data lakes, business systems and artificial intelligence projects.

Currently, there are no plans for relocations from either Unifi offices, a Boomi spokesperson said. Neither company disclosed monetary details of the deal, which is expected to close in the “near future.”

Nucci did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
