What is MuleSoft?

MuleSoft provides businesses with an integration platform to connect on-premises and cloud data, applications, and devices.

MuleSoft's platform automates IT. Integrate data and systems onto a single, simple platform, automate workflows and procedures, and create remarkable digital experiences. IT creates digital building blocks that teams can use however they like and ensures they have security, governance, and compliance measures.

On the company's Anypoint Platform, users can develop, manage, and test APIs, which enable these connections.

In May 2018, Salesforce acquired MuleSoft. Salesforce's Salesforce Integration Cloud now includes MuleSoft technology.


MuleSoft Anypoint Platform offers the following applications and services.

Using API Designer, a developer can create, document, and share an API design. A developer can reuse an API's security schema.

Through API Manager, a developer can protect APIs with an API gateway. This Anypoint platform component manages user access to APIs, ensures secure connections to back-end data sources, and throttles API calls.

Software developers can deploy Java-based APIs to on-premises and cloud-based environments using Anypoint Studio. Studio includes tools for building, editing, and debugging data integrations.

Anypoint Connectors lets developers connect applications to thousands of third-party REST API and SOAP API services.

Anypoint Analytics is used to monitor API usage and performance. This tool helps developers create unique dashboards and charts to visualize API performance and isolate performance issues.

Anypoint Runtime Manager is a centralized console for provisioning and monitoring Anypoint Platform resources across hybrid cloud architectures. Anypoint Platform enables these capabilities.

Anypoint Exchange lets a development team store and access APIs, templates, connectors, and documentation.

A development team can monitor an application's health using Anypoint Monitoring.

Anypoint Visualizer maps APIs and dependencies in real time.

CloudHub is a multi-tenant iPaaS provider. As a managed service, a development team can use CloudHub without installing software or hardware or maintaining either.

History of MuleSoft

Ross Mason founded San Francisco-based MuleSoft in 2006. MuleSoft's ability to eliminate integration "donkey work" inspired the name, according to the company's website. The company named its platform "mules" because mules are donkey-horse hybrids. This choice reflects the hybrid platform.

MuleSoft's investors include New Enterprise Associates, Hummer Winblad Venture Partners, Morgenthaler Ventures, Lightspeed Venture Partners, and Bay Partners. The company filed for an IPO in 2017.

Customers, rivals Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, Asics, Wells Fargo, and Siemens are among MuleSoft's 1,200 customers as of July 2018.

Dell Boomi, TIBCO Software, and Google-acquired Apigee are MuleSoft's competitors.

Describe MuleSoft

Routine requests overwhelm IT teams. MuleSoft integrates systems, automates mundane tasks, and frees up time to grow your business.

Your IT team busy? Do they have a lot of requests but few funds? Obsolete procedures and equipment? If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, you may want to ask, "What is MuleSoft?"

MuleSoft joined Salesforce in 2018. We offer solutions that help unleash the potential of every employee in your company, allowing them to produce faster business results. MuleSoft argues this. Line-of-business (LOB) teams have secure, self-service access to the capabilities and components they need, while IT teams have simple tools to develop automations and integrations.

MuleSoft's function

IT is one of a company's most important departments. They maintain order, protect company information, and innovate technological solutions. So many groups rely on them for important projects.

High demand disadvantage? IT teams can struggle to meet routine requests and new ideas. Only 44% of IT teams completed all requested projects in the previous year, and 52% were late, according to the MuleSoft Connectivity Benchmark Report. This slows down business operations, and as budgets tighten and worker skills are in higher demand, it becomes harder to overcome challenges like these.

MuleSoft usage:

MuleSoft helps IT teams integrate systems and data to maximize their potential, automate processes to boost productivity, and develop interactive digital experiences. Using composable connectivity, every digital asset can be reused. This strategy speeds up project completion.

MuleSoft offers a wide range of pre-built APIs for computers and software. If you put an API in front of your legacy systems, you can communicate with them even if you don't know how they work. On-premises and cloud-based systems can share data if each has a System API that understands modern system language. Every MuleSoft API has a specific role in its network. Experience APIs format data for display on desktops, mobiles, apps, etc. Process APIs process extracted data and perform logic. The Anypoint platform manages and orchestrates API-led integration and can generate and use APIs (APIs).

How does MuleSoft combine data and tech?

Your company's data is valuable. Without it, marketing and sales teams would be shouting into the void, and business leaders would make educated guesses instead of informed decisions. Each team needs access to relevant data to fulfill their responsibilities.

Because the average company uses 976 applications to store data, it can be difficult to ensure that all employees have access to the latest information. Linking the enterprise's applications helps users access the data they need.

MuleSoft simplifies integration. APIs, iPaaS, and RPA are used together to extract data from legacy systems. MuleSoft customers can integrate any system and access any data set with these features.

MuleSoft's role in automation

IT receives most of the company's automation requests. 91% of IT executives say automation demand has risen in the past two years. IT struggles due to budget and headcount constraints.

Information technology guides organization transformation. MuleSoft helps the IT department communicate its findings to the business. First, establish a unified platform to create reusable automations, components, workflows, and integrations with built-in security. IT can direct a team to our no-code solutions when they need help automating a process, allowing them to self-serve with clicks rather than code. This saves time and energy.

How does MuleSoft create seamless interactions?

A technology's service level and perceived quality are directly related. Yes, your customers and employees are important to your business.

Information technology executives value digital experiences. Almost all IT executives agree that their company must improve employee and customer technologies to remain competitive. Customer interactions with a company affect customer loyalty.

By combining MuleSoft integrations, automations, and workflows, you can create digital experiences for your most important customers. You can quickly build a mobile banking app, interactive e-commerce platform, or employee customer data portal with resources from previous projects. True for employees and customers.

MuleSoft's advantages

MuleSoft research found IT departments spend 71% of their time "keeping the lights on," leaving 29% for innovation. This may prevent the whole company from advancing their industry.

Businesses that provide low-code solutions and free up IT time with MuleSoft see increased productivity. MuleSoft users report three-times-faster project completion.

IT has more time to come up with new, innovative ideas and reimagine the company because projects are completed faster.

Every IT leader should know four trends.
