With Mulesoft, integrations are easy to implement and maintain. Also, with Mule4, it is more stable.
However, the higher cost of maintenance/licensing is making us think twice to continue with this platform. Oracle SOA has died because of the same reason.
In my opinion, Mulesoft should rethink its licensing cost structure. What are your thoughts? Any alternative solutions?

One of the oil giants started migrating to the Mulesoft Anypoint platform from their legacy integration platform only to realize at the midway that they couldn't bear the implementation cost anymore. As the API's got complex and started to demand more vCore, they halted any new development and deliberated to stay on the legacy platform for some more time.
So, obviously, Mulesoft should rethink on the pricing.

First, how well does it fit my B2B requirements out of the box?
B2B Middleware is not something you could just buy off the shelf. It requires significant technical knowledge, as well as a very specialized knowledge of your business processes and requirements to formalize a solution that will work for company.
Most middleware solutions are more a suite of tools, services and adapters, coupled together by ESB engines. Does this particular suite (or the number of addons you may have to add) cover the full scope you will need? What effort (infrastructure provision, software installation, configuration, and additional development) will it take)? How available are the people and resources for this effort? Does the solution cover all the communications/transport protocols and data types that I need to communicate with my internal and exteral vendors? What are the available data transformation tools like? How difficult is it to onboard my trading partners with this solution? Does it take the ever increasing scope of security and flexibility demands into account? And last, but not least, what expertise is available out there to help build my solution and keep it going?
