Anypoint Platform

Mulesoft Anypoint Platform is well suited if we want to have a complete solution which contains both an ESB and API Management and API led connectivity

Control-M

For our purposes, it is well suited. The learning curve for new users to develop a basic level of competence is relatively easy to accomplish. While the vendor has introduced many nice features since we started using the product (BIM and Forecast to name two that I would like to see our users take more advantage of), the basic product has remained readily accessible for users.

Pros

  • Open Source (even if there is no datamapper is not free).
  • MuleSoft Anypoint Platform is a Java product
  • We can use Maven to build projects and its dependencies
  • In MuleSoft Anypoint Platform Studio, we can build an API Management solution also.

  • Control-M provides an easy-to-use and easy-to-interpret interface for users, with most of the screen options and field names being self-explanatory. The on-screen options provide for a full range of functionality for automating batch production requirements, with multiple options and flexibility.
  • The vendor provides Control-M a wide range of utilities for extracting information from the dataset and providing with a minimal amount of training required for use.
  • As the systems programmer for Control-M on the mainframe, the ease of installation is one of the nicest features. The installation is panel driven and can be used by a relatively inexperienced technician to install successfully in a matter of several hours.
  • Again, as the systems programmer, I appreciate the level of expertise of the technical support personnel. Over the past 20+ years, I have come to know them well and find them to be knowledgeable and willing to provide assistance for any and all queries.
  • The developers have always been willing to listen to requests for new functionality and enhancements to existing functionality and are working to have the same type of functionality across all platforms.
  • We are a large mainframe shop, still heavily dependent on mainframes to support and develop new software for the mainframe.
  • We have worked closely with BMC to participate in the beta testing program and have had the opportunity to have an impact on software development.

Cons

  • The license is very expensive (for a big organization, it is very recommended to have an Enterprise License)
  • In a data flow, only one object contains all activities data (input/output)
  • Sometimes we have to write xml because the graphical designer of flows is not responsive.

  • I would like to see some improvement in handling conditions from previous days.
  • I would like to see some improvement in being able to send out alert notifications on jobs that have not started past the new day.

Control-M's overall usability is very good because it is simple to use. Control-M SelfService is an easy tool to give to some of the users who want to use a web interface. The training curve for most users is very short and most of the functions are very simple to figure out.

Much better UI and much better handling of dependencies in Control-M compared to other tools.

Return on Investment

  • Very expensive Enterprise Licence cost.
  • MuleSoft Anypoint Platformon cloud is very quick to set up (it is not intended for internal use).
  • DataWeave is very powerful to do transformations.
  • Many native connectors are available (Salesforce...).

  • This is too soon to quantify as we are still working to implement v9 to fully utilize all capabilities of the product.
