I see MuleSoft as a Platform that can propel/transform any legacy enterprise into the digital age.

Following are the reasons.

1. Mule comes with 100s of connectors for Communication protocols (HTTP, TCP, WebSockets, FTP, with Security etc..) + Data Protocols (Database, File, SAP, Salesforce) etc.. and supports a wide range of data formats like JSON / XML / CSV etc.

2. Mule Advocates API Led connectivity dividing the application into Data/System APIs (Abstracting Data Layer), Process APIs (A mash-up of System APIs), Experience APIs (supporting different UI Channels like Web, Mobile etc.) on top of Process APIs

3. It gives components a low code platform, with data transformation from one form to another form, Batch and other standard integration patterns like Routers/aggregators / scatter-gather etc.

4. It has a comprehensive enterprise-level integrated toolset with API Manager, Runtime Manager, Exchange, Developer Portal, Flow Designer, Anypoint Studio with ease to deploy the application across different domains using standard CI/CD piplelines.

The toolset and separation of concerns at each layer give a great level of flexibility for transforming any legacy enterprise into the digital age.

The most valuable features of the Mule Anypoint Platform are the Flex Gateway, API management, easy-to-use, and connectors. Additionally, they are coming out with improvements to the solution when required.

It has improved our organization a lot because of the increase in productivity, and it has simplified the development of products. MuleSoft Anypoint Platform is a highly effective tool where you can build integrations so effectively. If you establish the integration platform, it increases productivity. It helps us to do effective re-authentication, and it speeds the integration.

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.

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.

MuleSoft offers with the Anypoint Platform a unified platform for API management and an integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS) as well as an on-premise Enterprise Service Bus pattern.

Hi peers, 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.

Our organization ran comparison tests to determine whether TIBCO BusinessWorks or Mule Anypoint platform integration and connectivity software was the better fit for us. We decided to go with Mule Anypoint Platform. This solution’s graphic interface was designed with users in mind. The GI is very easy to follow visually. Everything is laid out in such a way that users can easily read and understand the statistics and feedback that the system collects. Instead of having to search for the data that the program collects, it is available in one place. This will save both time and resources. A single user will be able to find and interpret the data without needing a deep technical background. An organization that uses Mule Anypoint Platform will find that their monitoring capabilities have greatly improved. TIBCO BusinessWorks’s graphical interface lacks the simplicity of Mule Anypoint Platform. As opposed to the single interface screen that Mule Anypoint Platform offers, TIBCO BusinessWorks takes a more old-school approach. While it does gather data, it does not gather it in a single location. Time will then have to be spent looking for the particular pieces of data that are needed. This requirement will slow down a business's monitoring capabilities and prevent them from working at maximum efficiency. Mule Anypoint Platform also offers users two different options as far as the configuration of their system environments. It has what those who are looking to create their own technical environments seek. Mule Anypoint Platform environments can be easily customized. This makes it capable of a high level of flexibility. However, there may be those who want to save time and have no interest in having to create environments from scratch. Mule Anypoint Platform addresses this as well. There are built-in environments that can be deployed without requiring users to create anything new. All that users need to do is to start running the program. TIBCO BusinessWorks offers users the ability to build their own technical environments. Users can create custom palettes to meet whatever needs their business might have. However, should an organization want to save time by employing ready-to-use, built-in palettes, they are out of luck. There is a level of configuration required before you can use the program. Conclusion: While TIBCO BusinessWorks is a fairly competent product, we found Mule Anypoint Platform to be superior. Mule Anypoint Platform’s graphical interface and dual environmental options make it the more robust program.
