Anypoint Platform is ideal for a large corporation that values efficiency in setting up new environments. Once you log in to Anypoint Platform, you'll have immediate access to the production and staging environments. You can tailor your environment's parameters to your specific needs and requirements, but if you don't you can simply deploy and execute your APIs. Mule does not provide a plan with a price tag that is reasonable for small businesses to pay. Subscription and licensing costs are too costly for a young company.

[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.

You can empower your business with the process, experience, and system APIs. This also tends to simplify API management because they are segregated into the three groups and provide an additional layer of security. Anypoint is very effective at quickly exposing critical data to web apps, connected devices, vendor systems, and mobile devices in a secure way. It's also great for situations where you need to throttle access or requests to certain systems. The template development approach makes it easy to build reusable services across multiple points of integration.

Anypoint Platform can be beneficial to all customers with integration needs. There are platform entitlements that add features for every level of client needs. For just a few simple integrations, Anypoint Platform can be prohibitively expensive.

While the Anypoint Platform is a newcomer to API management tools, it still manages to be feature-rich and offers many resources for both API development and deployment needs.

Pros:
  • Intuitive user interface. It's extremely easy to locate API information and consume analytic information. - Easy to do create new APIs via RAML. - Fast and easy deployments and updates. - Wide range of connectors.

Cons:
  • Customer support can be a bit slow and hard to reach. - Developer Portals for APIs do not allow for much customization. - If you manage a lot of APIs, it is hard to keep track and administer APIs since tables do not let you sort using API request date and other variables.

Anypoint enables building API's backed up by integrations. It's ideal for SaaS-based integrations, for example, Salesforce and Workday. There are multiple orchestrations in the industry like integration orchestration, cloud orchestration, business process orchestration. Anypoint shines when it comes to integration. It's not ideal to use Mulesoft for cloud & business process orchestration. API led connectivity is a big sell for Mulesoft, however comparing the cost to that of non-SaaS-based integration is a costly affair.

The Anypoint Platform is well suited for the integration of multiple subsystems. It is a great system or tool to create microservice-based integration architecture. The user can also use this tool to connect multiple SAAS based applications or data synchronization. Anypoint Platform provides a single entry point for applications where users can apply API policies like rate limit, authentication and many more.

Pros:
  • Basically, it is used to solve business problems where integration needs to be done between a legacy system and Salesforce.
  • Its capable of handling the integration between a variety of connectors.
  • The transformation is just so simple. We can use XML, JSON, and Java for it.

Cons:
  • The functions used in the transformation connector should be prompted automatically.
  • RAML should be designed and compiled within the Anypoint studio.

I'm using Mulesoft platform as pure ESB and not for back end features and is more flexible than other platforms. It enables the company to develop very complex integration architecture in few months, being able to modify or scale it in few steps, with not-so-expert developers and not-so-detailed technical documentation.

Anypoint API Manager is well suited to organizations where they want to manage the entire API lifecycle from a single platform. For organizations which have implemented their integration layer with Mule ESB, it's the perfect platform. They can design, build, deploy and manage all of their APIs from the Anypoint platform.

For organizations where the cost is a major decision-driving factor, they can opt for some other cheaper options like AWS API manager, Layer 7, etc. So basically, the features which you're getting ready-made in Anypoint API manager you can manually configure in AWS and save some money.

Single stop solution for application and data integration needs available in cloud and on premise flavours. iPaaS abstracts a lot of complexities except that it still requires eclipse based devoplement. B2B gateway related features can be improved. Overall an integration platform worth considering.

The tool is well suited when a user is trying to develop and implement an API. It has an excellent user interface which makes the user enjoy his work. Also, if the user is developing SaaS based application, this is the best tool to use. This tool is handy when a user needs to design an architecture and see the flow.
