Azure Data Factory

If you are just getting started and all your data is resident in the Azure cloud, then Azure Data Factory is likely to work fine without having to jump through too many hoops. However, in a hybrid environment (which is most of them these days), ADF will likely need a leg up. It works well for scheduling and basic scheduling/orchestration tasks, but the feature set is not at a level with SSIS (which has been around for 15 years so...). As ADF now supports deploying SSIS, it is also a good candidate if large amounts of your data are resident in the Azure cloud and you have an existing SSIS investment in code and licensing. We are using it in a hybrid fashion for the data warehouse and will slowly transition over to ADF as the feature set improves. We are also using it for cloud-native applications that only require supplemental data from on-prem resources

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.

Pros

Azure Data Factory

  • Cloud-based
  • Fast
  • Reliable
Marco Urrea | TrustRadius Reviewer

Anypoint Platform

  • API Manager provides easy API Policy Governance. You do not have to manage multiple platforms for managing the policies.
  • Supports hybrid Mule EBS environments. You can configure both CouldHub-based and on-premise-based API using Mulesoft API manager in a similar manner.
  • It's very easy to implement API proxy.
  • User friendly UI.
  • Single platform to manage all.

Cons

Azure Data Factory

  • Limited source/sink (target) connectors depending on which area of Azure Data Factory you are using.
  • Does not yet have parity with SSIS as far as the transforms available.

  • 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.

We have not had need to engage with Microsoft much on Azure Data Factory, but they have been responsive and helpful when needed. This being said, we have not had a major emergency or outage requiring their intervention. The score of seven is a representation that they have done well for now, but have not proved out their support for a significant issue

Anypoint Platform support is very responsive. There is also a huge knowledge base and an active online forum where answers to most questions can be found. When needed support engages the engineering group so adequate solutions or workarounds are always provided.

Alternatives Considered

Azure Data Factory

I'd chose data factory because its very easy to use, its UI is beautiful, it's library for .net is very useful and it lives within the microsoft ecosystem.
Marco Urrea | TrustRadius Reviewer

Anypoint Platform

Anypoint Platform is really very easy to adopt for application integration. Simple UI and easy data weave language allows user to focus on business portion only. The API management and deployment of application are hassle free. We have selected Anypoint platform because it is open source and java based platform. A user can create proprietary application's connector and easily embed it to existing infrastructure.

Return on Investment

Azure Data Factory

  • It is very useful and make things easier
  • Debugging can improve
  • Its better suited than other products with the same objective
Marco Urrea | TrustRadius Reviewer

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.
