Anypoint Platform

Pros:
  • Basically, it is used to solve business problems where integration needs to be done between a legacy system and Salesforce.
  • Its capable of handling the integration between a variety of connectors.
  • The transformation is just so simple. We can use XML, JSON, and Java for it.
Cons:
  • The functions used in the transformation connector should be prompted automatically.
  • RAML should be designed and compiled within the Anypoint studio.

Apache Kafka

Apache Kafka is extremely well suited in near real-time scenarios, high volume or multi-location projects. It can solve escalation problems for a fraction of the cost other solutions do and it has the flexibility of open source scenarios.

Cons

  • The UI can be a bit difficult to navigate for beginners, who are not used to Anypoint platform
  • Support for node.js that a leading market competitor Google cloud's Apigee has
  • The trial is only for 30 days, which should be extended to atleast 60 days which i feel personally is good for developers to learn the product

  • Still a bit inmature, some clients have required recoding in the last few versions
  • New feaures coming very fast, several upgrades a year may be required
  • Not many commercial companies provide support

Kafka is quickly becoming core product of the organization, indeed it is replacing older messaging systems. No better alternatives found yet

Alternatives Considered

It enables customers to expose their APIs in a very simple and fast way. It can be used by non-expert developers. It is compliant with all major connection and data representation world standard.

Kafka is faster and more scalable, also "free" as opensource (albeit we deploy using a commercial distribution). Infrastructure tends to be cheaper. On the other hand, projects must adapt to Kafka APIs that sometimes change and BAU increases until a major 1.x version comes out and adds stability to the product.
