Overall Satisfaction with MuleSoft Anypoint Platform

MuleSoft Anypoint Platform is being used as an ESB (integration bus). It allows us to transport data from one application to other. It also allows us to transform data to canonical format and to perform synchronous and asynchronous data exchanges.
  • Open Source (even if there is no datamapper is not free).
  • MuleSoft Anypoint Platform is a Java product
  • We can use Maven to build projects and its dependencies
  • In MuleSoft Anypoint Platform Studio, we can build an API Management solution also.
  • The license is very expensive (for a big organization, it is very recommended to have an Enterprise License)
  • In a data flow, only one object contains all activities data (input/output)
  • Sometimes we have to write xml because the graphical designer of flows is not responsive.
  • Very expensive Enterprise Licence cost.
  • MuleSoft Anypoint Platformon cloud is very quick to set up (it is not intended for internal use).
  • DataWeave is very powerful to do transformations.
  • Many native connectors are available (Salesforce...).
Mulesoft Anypoint Platform is well suited if we want to have a complete solution which contains both an ESB and API Management and API led connectivity
