It's an expensive product. They need to work on their pricing so that potential customers aren't scared off. While enterprise-level organizations may not mind the pricing, smaller organizations wouldn't find the price suitable. Therefore, they should work to maybe develop a cheaper license for small companies so that they too can get the benefits of the solution - but at a much smaller cost.

We can't discuss pricing at this time as we are under an NDA.

The product is one cost. Support comes complete with no additional cost even though they pay some special attention to us. We are not a huge client. I would say we are smaller than a lot of their clients. But they do have, as I understand, some interest to grow in Canada and build their local assets. It works out well for us because we have some benefits with the company.

There are no other fees beyond the standard licensing costs.

Licensing can be complex as is the case with most iPaaS/cloud offerings. I would advise on making an overview of the type of connections needed, technology, and applications used and to match this to the licensing model and take the time for the explanation on the licensing model. What is the minimal licensing model, which parts are mandatory, when can you scale up or down, etc. One needs a full picture to understand it. MuleSoft is also known for Mule ESB, their initial Open Source offering, and this one is still available. It should not, however, be considered for enterprise class use cases as it does not include the required out-of-the-box connectors and requires heavy coding in Java. The Anypoint Runtime Manager is also part of the Enterprise Licenses and no management console is thus available for Open Source making it a black box on production as is the case with custom point-to-point middleware.

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.

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?

As an architect, I prefer open source integration solutions because they very often set the future standards and do not depend on a particular supplier.
