Anypoint Platform

While the Anypoint Platform is a newcomer to API management tools, it still manages to be feature-rich and offers many resources for both API development and deployment needs.Pros:
  • Intuitive user interface. It's extremely easy to locate API information and consume analytic information. - Easy to do create new APIs via RAML. - Fast and easy deployments and updates. - Wide range of connectors.
Cons:
  • Customer support can be a bit slow and hard to reach. - Developer Portals for APIs do not allow for much customization. - If you manage a lot of APIs, it is hard to keep track and administer APIs since tables do not let you sort using API request date and other variables.

Cloud Elements

Cloud Elements shines when you want to offer multiple options to the user on a type of system, such as supporting integration to CRM and wanting to offer Dynamics, Salesforce, and HubSpot on equal footing. If you only have a single integration with a single system, using Cloud Elements adds an unnecessary layer of abstraction.

Pros

Anypoint Platform

  • Provides wide range of popular connectors like salesforce, netsuite, sftp and many more. A user can easily integrate with those services using specific connector.
  • Support API development using RAML and desing tool. The platform is very good in data type classification.

  • The API itself is very robust and easy to use, being a standard REST interface, standard HTTP response codes, well-packaged error messages, etc.
  • Their uptime is great! I think I've seen one (short) 5-minute' blip' the entire time we've been connected for any type of primary function.
  • Their support is top notch, they respond quickly, and the team that works with you is communicative and knowledgable.

Cons

Anypoint Platform

  • Mulesoft has tons of capabilities however where I see it's lacking is usability, it's tough to set-up Anypoint Studio on local machines. Though flow designer is an alternate to that, however, it has very limited capabilities and it's extremely tough to build integrations there for business users.
  • Very expensive and no pay as you go model.

  • The only thing I can think of that they could improve is the quality of the assets they produce in the go-to-market process. This is a huge value add service, but the quality of what was produced was lower than what we would have produced internally. We spent more time going back and forth on the assets than it would have taken us to build them from scratch.

Alternatives Considered

Anypoint Platform

Dell Boomi is kind of similar in drag and drop implementation. However, it doesn't have as many connectors (shapes in Dell Boomi). Moreover, it also doesn't have deployment stuff on its own.Informatica is way behind Dell Boomi and Anypoint Platform, but users are still using it since they are not aware of the latest technology like Mulesoft.

At the time we found Cloud Elements we found no other option that had a Unified API for cloud storage providers.

Return on Investment

Anypoint Platform

  • Mulesoft can be used to provide an integration platform to a large number of systems like Salesforce, ODBC, JDBC, SAP, Mongo DB, etc.
  • An excellent option to develop microservices and real-time integrations.
  • Not as robust in handling large data volumes, Informatica is better in that respect.

  • Not my area of expertise, but it made my job as an implementer much easier, especially after finishing the first integration.
