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.

Routing, protocol transformation, message transformation and service aggregation are very well performed by WebSphere Message Broker (WMB). It is not very suitable for integration with databases.

Pros

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

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.

Alternatives Considered

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.

Websphere message broker supports a lot more protocols than any other similar tool.

Return on Investment

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.
