Denodo allows us to create and combine new views to create a
virtual repository and APIs without a single line of code. It is excellent because it can present connectors with a view format for downstream consumers by flattening a JSON file. Reading or connecting to various sources and displaying a tabular view is an excellent feature. The product's technical data catalog is well-organized. Read full review
MuleSoft Anypoint Platform is best tool in the market for developing APIs with complex structures communicating with various different types of applications including web applications as well as legacy applications. Also applications including database connectivity for fetching and updating data in the DB tables. I cant think of any scenario which MuleSoft Anypoint Platform could not be used for developing the integrations.
Read full review Pros Database Agnostic: You can easily connect to different environments and mash up data sets. The "magic" of data virtualization: No data is created, so data is reported in near-real-time to end users. It's easy to use UI for developers. You just connect to a data source, create tables, and join them to other datasets. Read full review 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. Read full review Cons Caching - but I am sure it will be improved by now. There were times when we expected the cache to be refreshed but it was stale. Schema generation of endpoints from API response was sometimes incomplete as not all API calls returned all the fields. Will be good to have an ability to load the schema itself (XSD/JSON/Soap XML etc). Denodo exposed web services were in preliminary stage when we used; I'm sure it will be improved by now. Export/Import deployment, while it was helpful, there were unexpected issues without any errors during deployment. Issues were only identified during testing. Some views were not created properly and did not work. If it was working in the environment from where it was exported from, it should work in the environment where it is imported. Read full review 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. Read full review Usability
Denodo is very easy to use. It has a user-friendly drag and drop interface. I'm not a fan of the java platform it resides on.

Denodo is a tool to rapidly mash data sources together and create meaningful datasets. It does have its downfalls though. When you create larger, more complex datasets, you will most likely need to cache your datasets, regardless of how proper your joins are set up. Since DV takes data from multiple environments, you are taxing the corporate network, so you need to be conscious of how much data you are sending through the network and truly understand how and when to join datasets due to this.

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.

Once we have moved all of our system integration APIs to the MuleSoft Anypoint Platform, we will need to communicate with a wide variety of external systems. All of our business and service logic is stored in the aforementioned core systems. Anypoint Platform (and all of our APIs) makes it easy to connect to various other platforms. In order to link to these many other systems, connectors and/or components are utilized, and they are simple to configure and integrate.
Read full review Return on Investment It is a huge advantage that we can connect to many different databases to provide data rapidly and accurately. It has proven to be a valuable environment for deploying data virtualization solutions, and its user community is active in finding and fixing issues. Read full review 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. Read full review ScreenShots Anypoint Platform Screenshots
