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.

Anypoint Platform

[MuleSoft] Anypoint Platform fits for an enterprise company that wants to gain time with environment configuration. The deployment environment - pre-prod and prod - is ready to use once you access Anypoint Platform. It's true you can customize all configurations for your environment based on your requirements and needs, but if you don't, just deploy and run your APIs.For small business, Mule doesn't have a low-cost subscription which can attend small companies. The subscription and license prices are too high for a startup with limited financial resources.

Pros

Cloud Elements

  • 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.

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

Cloud Elements

  • 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.

Anypoint Platform

  • Has more features than what we really need so we're paying for more than we use. Sort of like paying for an Abrams tank when all we really need is a Toyota Corolla.
  • Not a value product, tends to be expensive.
  • Takes a while for developers to learn to use Mulesoft Anypoint.

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.

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

Anypoint Platform

The main problem with this software is the different connector type that is used for different protocols except for a different SAP connector. There is only one connector called SAP. It will be great if there will have a different connectors like idoc, RFC, proxy, etc.

Return on Investment

Cloud Elements

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

Anypoint Platform

  • If you are a big size organization that heavily uses API's and SaaS-based integration, Anypoint platform is great. However, if your API implementations are not in Mulesoft, hosting just API specs is not worth it in terms of ROI.
  • Mulesoft uses propitiatory language which makes it difficult to write custom code when required, some other iPaaS platforms like Webmethods.io uses nodeJS which makes it easier to write custom code. In short, when you need to write custom code, building and supporting is a challenge.
