I architected applications / platforms over Mule; I see MuleSoft as a Platform which can propel / transform any legacy enterprise into 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.

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

We are using the Mule Anypoint Platform for multiple clients. One of our clients is the largest retail chain in the US and we are using the solution for integration with E-commerce and for the largest logistics and cloud company in the US for integrating their transport management system. Additionally, we have many manufacturing organizations, where we are integrating their legacy applications, SaaS-based application, SAP database, et cetera.

Our customers have a transformation center, and all their existing enterprise applications have to integrate to it. For example, SAP, Salesforce, and some SFTP integrations. We are doing all of these integrations with the Anypoint Platform.

It's kind of a hybrid integration. We are trying to connect some of the paths to tie SaaS and on-premise applications together.

We primarily use the solution for different customers. In a real-time scenario, if you want to connect any system to any system or any application to any application or any message to any message - source to target - you can use this product. Maybe there are different applications and different legacy systems. If you want to connect one system to another system, for example, SAP to Salesforce, you can. If SAP only communicates in certain formats, Salesforce might not understand these formats. However, if I want to pass data from one to the other, I use MuleSoft as the medium to do it.

I used it in my previous company. We were using it to build a middleware layer to connect a lot of systems together. Oracle and Salesforce were the two primary systems that were being done. We were building it out so that we could hook in any of the ERP systems that we had at that company. So, the use case was to be able to connect systems and do process integration across multiple ERP systems.

I've been developing Mule applications and have been using Anypoint Studio for development purposes. I have a Mule Anypoint Studio for the certification to test knowledge of the Anypoint Platform in the cloud. I've never been in a live situation for deployment within the cloud. We use Mule for daily activities like for domains like retail, eCommerce and the wholesale department. So most of the daily basic integration, ETL jobs when we have eCommerce, they do it in the USA. There are different time zones. In the Belgian system, you begin getting the insights using or doing analysis on the data. It enables us to have real-time integrations. Data flows from different domains as well as ETL jobs and for real-time integration. There were too many stores to make and to work on one platform, so this was the main purpose of use. There were different texts coming in and other things in the stores. They had to scan them and when they passed this information to other domains, like eCommerce, for example. All these jobs were running at a specific time.

We provide the solution for the clients. It's mainly used for hybrid integration solutions. Cloud to cloud and cloud to on-premises scenarios.

Primarily we use the product for our retail platform to build our integrations. That is the main feature of what it does. So, it's an API (Application Programming Interface) and ETL.

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.
