Anypoint Platform

Any realtime integrations are ideal use cases for Anypoint platform. Batch processes are not appropriate for Anypoint platform.

Microsoft BizTalk

BizTalk fits perfectly in our environment. While the quantity of work is rising, the tech-department is not growing :(

Pros

  • The Anypoint Exchange where there are huge number of connectors to connect to n number of external applications.
  • The API management stuff, securing and deploying a API(webservice) via client id and client secret.
  • The various policies that we can use to restrict access to our API like rate limiting, Quota etc.

  • BizTalk uses Microsoft Visual Studio as the IDE (integrated development environment) tool, and it's very easy to use.
  • The orchestration engine of BizTalk addresses resource issue very well for long-running business processes by dehydrating and rehydrating orchestration instances.
  • BizTalk is very easy to integrate if the development is mainly on the Microsoft software family.

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.

  • BizTalk needs to be better at tracking down errors after the fact. Input files by default get deleted after processing successfully, unless you specifically specify that they don't. This can be an issue where you need to see what the input file contained, since you may have errors showing up in your target platform, in our case this was SAP.
  • BizTalk logging needs improved. It needs to be able to log the content of the messages it sends and receives. It would be good if the log had a link to the input and output files.
  • BizTalk needs to allow a simple way to preserve the input and output files for debugging purposes. A master setting on the orchestration would be helpful for this.

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 did look at Jitterbit dataloader from Salesforce.com. Jitterbit seems like a pretty decent solution if you are doing a lot of uploads into Salesforce.com. However, its not nearly as flexible as Microsoft Biztalk is. Biztalk allows you to create any type of custom solution you wish, whereas Jitterbit is much more limited.

Return on Investment

  • We noticed a new way for integrating REST services interacting with mobile application (IOS/Android based).
  • Our customer appreciated our work.
  • Our customer appreciated having a very solid production environment while not needing to spend money to maintain it.

  • If the Microsoft SQL Server database is used as well as other Microsoft applications, then BizTalk will be a good tool to add.
  • Many .NET developers are available in the market if there is a requirement to use it to develop a BizTalk Server rapidly.
  • If the organization is focused on open source tools or Java family, BizTalk may be not a good choice.
