Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"It is very easy to use for building connectors. It comes with a lot of connectors. For example, it has different adapters for NetSuite, which are very easy to use. It also has Salesforce connectors. The object store feature is also really easy to use. Mule Anypoint Platform is also good in terms of performance and how it is managed behind the scenes.""This is the easiest and best tool available.""The monitoring capabilities of this product are very good because of the feedback it supplies in statistics.""Mule works very well with Salesforce and CRMs.""The flexibility has been great overall.""I have found several things most valuable, including its very quick implementation that you can use a lot of out of the box templates, and lastly that it is a very mature product, especially in hybrid integration.""We are very satisfied with the DevOps support.""Overall, it is a pretty good product. It is also very scalable."

"The solution is easy to use.""The product has good technical support but you usually will not need it because it is quite stable.""With the latest version what I find to be the most valuable are the REST, SuccessFactors, and Ariba Network adapters.""The initial setup is easy.""The initial setup was straightforward.""The most valuable feature is the seamless integration with backend systems.""The monitoring is one of the greatest features in Process Orchestration because it is user-friendly and easy for somebody who is not experienced.""SAP Process Orchestration is middleware where we are able to manage and interact with everything from a single location. One of the most beneficial areas is monitoring which is very easy because it is all in one place. There are many adapters added recently that can be used for new functionality. The solution is easy to operate and it is more mature than the cloud solution provided by SAP."

More SAP Process Orchestration Pros →

"Lacks intelligent management data and intelligent mappings.""Mule should have better B2B integration.""Pricing is one aspect of the solution that is troublesome. It's too expensive for smaller organizations.""The solution is very expensive. They need to work on the pricing.""It doesn't work well when you try using it for the processing layer.""We would like an entire DevOps in place in this particular solution.""Its documentation needed a little bit of work to make it more usable. It is a platform that is used mainly by developers and other people for connecting systems. Its documentation was confusing in some areas and was not very helpful in other areas. I had to go to a consultant to get some work done, which ideally shouldn't be required.""An on-premise setup requires special skills and you need a lot of professional services."

More Mule Anypoint Platform Cons →

"I think the main area that SAP PO should improve on is offering pre-delivered content like they do when you use SAP Cloud Platform Integration (CPI). SAP should not forget that they still have a lot of customers using Process Orchestration and they should focus more on providing pre-delivered content in SAP PO.""The monitoring governance offered by SAP is too technical and needs to be geared more toward business users.""It is not a scalable solution for the cloud. I would not recommend this for the cloud.""The responsiveness of technical support needs to be improved.""In terms of technical support, it would be helpful if they handled the tickets a bit faster when queries are sent to them.""The solution could improve by making it more user-friendly by limiting the code required. We have to add some code in some cases where we need complex logic or some other functions. If this was able to be done in a more simplified manner then it would save a lot of effort and time.""It's very difficult to find errors in a simple way.""I feel that support is an area that needs improvement. They need to improve the response time and address the customer's issues as soon as possible."
