Overall Satisfaction with Anypoint Platform

This platform is being used in an Energy multinational company as an innovative cloud based Enterprise Service Bus for orchestrating internal and external integration flows needed to enrich company business information. The customer chose to buy enterprise licenses to be able to use advanced features offered by Mulesoft such as Salesforce connector and dataweave mapping tools.
  • It enables developer to write complex orchestration flows through a drag & drop dashboard.
  • It enables to interact with other platform via web and/or REST services.
  • It enables you to deploy application on cloud in an easy and smart way.
  • In dataweave mapping you have to be sure to map fields inserting right names. There is not provided a control mechanism for verifying it
  • It is not easy to structure a process hierarchy because you have to develop flows and sub flows in the same xml configuration files.
  • I would like to interact with Mulesoft support directly from the design environment.
  • We noticed a new way for integrating REST services interacting with mobile application (IOS/Android based).
  • Our customer appreciated our work.
  • Our customer appreciated having a very solid production environment while not needing to spend money to maintain it.
It enables customers to expose their APIs in a very simple and fast way. It can be used by non-expert developers. It is compliant with all major connection and data representation world standard.
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.

Evaluating Anypoint Platform and Competitors

Yes - In our customer proposals we replaced Tibco BusinessWorks mainly because of
- Salesforce integration is better implemented in Mulesoft
- I can easly add custom java functions
- Hybrid architecture are better managed through cloudHub platform
- AWS integrations
  • Price
  • Product Usability
  • Vendor Reputation
The product usability helped us to create a new internal factory in few months. Developer certification path is supported by free training.
Mulesoft support and knowledge sharing is able to support our developers in managing every day issue.
