Overall Satisfaction with Anypoint Platform

Anypoint Platform is the next-gen tool that markets micro-service framework and is our go-to platform. It's being used across the Integration Team to move the existing integrations to Mule. The idea of micro-service which doesn't hamper the other services running is the major win for Anypoint.
  • Hybrid integration platform.
  • Integrating data from both legacy and SaaS systems, such as SAS, Salesforce, JDE and more.
  • High availability and scalability.
  • Ability to develop custom functions and logic with minimal system modifications.
  • Monitoring: There is huge way the organization can increase in monitoring, the Anypoint monitoring dashboard is just ok!
  • Documentation is way behind, there are only minimal knowledge base articles.
  • Support: The support system can be more pro-active.
  • Cost.
  • 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.
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.
The support is fine but it gets delayed most of the time.
The engineers sometimes don't have skills to resolve the issue and they go via a basic resolution triage.

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.
