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.

If you need a robust, extensible, reliable Enterprise Service Bus, with "Enterprise" being the key word here, TIBCO [Enterprise Message Service] will be able to fulfill every expectation. As proof of concept, or ad-hoc implementations, it might not be as well suited due to the infrastructure required.

  • It's very easy to implement API proxy.
  • User friendly UI.
  • Single platform to manage all.

  • Tibco EMS performs very well, and it meets our stringent performance requirements for corporate messaging backbone.
  • Tibco EMS scales well, and this is another of our stringent requirements.
  • Tibco provides good support for the EMS product, and continues to improve it. This is important as we don't want to use something that does not keep up with the changes in the technology landscape.

Cons
Salesforce
  • 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.

  • A bit of lag time between data sync and the data reaching the server for some of our field sites.
  • It still seems like a niche product for me with little community support. I didn't know about it before working for a company that deployed it.
  • Certain functionality is too complex to setup as compared to other products on the market.

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.

TIBCO Enterprise Message Service acts as a barebone service in our environment. Some applications use TIBCO Rendezvous, some EMS. In this way it was possible to evaluate the differences and I saw that EMS was more robust and open to different programming languages. In particular the integration with java was a good point.

Return on Investment
Salesforce
  • 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.

  • It promotes the event-driven a-synchronized architecture, boosting the service-oriented design change by decoupling the data generator and the data consumer.
  • Applications can be easily "attached" to the data flow to quickly roll out the business added values without having to risk the changes of existing applications or components.
