Dell Boomi API Management

Dell Boomi API Management is particularly well suited for multi-tenant cloud integration across various APIs/services/providers/etc. We were able to easily and quickly integrate the APIs from various providers across our organization. It is less well suited for external API development. Any substantial changes to external connections required more integration work than we were used to and we decided to avoid these situations.

Mule ESB

If you’re bringing anything into Salesforce you should just invest now into Mule, you will get your money’s worth and find a myriad of uses to build APIs between many other systems. Once you build a component you can easily reuse it as a building block to attach to another source/destination. This makes it easy to ramp up quickly and spread usage of Mule throughout your enterprise. A good value for medium to large companies, but probably cheaper to outsource your job to a consulting firm if you are smaller.

Pros

Dell Boomi API Management

  • Can integrate multiple sources: REST, SOAP, RDBM.
  • Cloud based so always easy to maintain.
  • Training new resources is always easy.
  • Easy to use UI which lets you create orchestrations nicely.

Mule ESB

  • It is best suited for Rest API development. Mule ESB uses RAML as an API descriptor which is less complex and easy to understand. RAML is an open standard majorly supported by Mulesoft. Once RAML is developed, it is very easy (a few clicks)to create flows corresponding to the resources defined in the RAML. One can also include JSON schema validation in RAML, and with the use of APIkit router, Mule ESB makes the request validation very easy (it's automatic basically.)
  • Mule ESB comes with a large spectrum of community and enterprise connectors. We have connectors for all the major platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Salesforce, SAP, etc. This enables Mule ESB to integrate with the other systems in a faster and more robust way. Mule ESB has many components to fulfill the requirements of each integration (for example batch processing, parallel processing, choice, etc.)
  • Mule API gateway is one of the best tools (modules) of Mulesoft's offering. It supports API governance and management very well. One can easily enforce policies on their APIs with API gateway. It enables some of the must-have features in an API solution (i.e. throttling, oAuth, access levels, etc.)
  • Implementing a CI/CD (DevOps) environment for Mule ESB is a very easy task. Mule majorly uses MAVEN as its build tool, which in turn makes it best suitable for CI/CD approach. Mule also provides MAVEN plugins for auto deployments to the servers. Mule also has a best Unit testing module which is MUnit. MUnit can be used for both Unit and Functional testing, and it is easy to write and generates coverage reports in various formats.

Mule ESB

  • Make sure to not over-engineer shared components. It can complicate development
  • Create a roadmap for where you are going - if not, you may miss components
  • I suggest getting support, otherwise it could be a difficult learning curve

We have always had a great experience with Dell customer service across a variety of products and services in the past and Dell Boomi API Management is no exception. We have found them very responsive and helpful both during the initial sales and setup process as well as on an ongoing basis through our experience once we were customers.

It wasn't my decision.

Mule ESB

It doesn't have API . We have to go for another API manager. But in Mule, it has both API manager and ESB

Return on Investment

Dell Boomi API Management

  • It would have not been possible to run our application with out integration, and Dell Boomi API Management served the purpose.
  • Not as effective while communicating with SOAP as it is in the case of Rest or SQL.
Mian Ghulam Ghous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Mule ESB

  • Overall a great tool for complex integrations
