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.

IBM API Connect

IBM API connect has made good progress over the last 3 years; it has a strong support team and now trained resources are available. Don’t think there is any drawbacks as of now

  • API Connect as a platform is very advanced and allow you to create APIs, and host them on the portal seamlessly
  • Datapower is a very powerful gateway which takes care of all the infosec. Very stable product
  • The release management is also super easy, and graduating code from Dev to test and then to prod is well versioned

Cons

  • In dataweave mapping you have to be sure to map fields inserting right names. There is not provided a control mechanism for verifying it
  • It is not easy to structure a process hierarchy because you have to develop flows and sub flows in the same xml configuration files.
  • I would like to interact with Mulesoft support directly from the design environment.

  • Currently they use 2 portals one for Test and one for Prod. They should merge them now
  • We wanted some relation between SSL & the application / organisation created in API connect. I believe it’s now part of API connect V6

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.

We selected API connect as both tools have more or less same features, the differentiation was we also use IIB, and seamless integration with IIB was the major factor

Return on Investment

  • Replacement of legacy middleware like TIBCO and Webmethods
  • Start of new API first approach
  • Great option for SaaS integrations after the acquisition by Salesforce
