Entertainment Partners Selects Mule ESB Enterprise to Provide a Flexible Approach to Application Integration

Mule ESB's Simplicity, Openness, and Technology Leadership Provide Entertainment Partners Powerful Integration Capabilities With No Vendor Lock-In

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 07/14/09 -- MuleSource, the company behind Mule, the leading open source service oriented architecture (SOA) infrastructure software, today announced that Entertainment Partners, the leading provider of payroll and production management solutions for the entertainment industry, has deployed Mule ESB Enterprise for its new enterprise resource planning (ERP) system. Entertainment Partners joins customers who drove 140% year-over-year quarterly bookings growth at MuleSource, selecting Mule ESB for its developer simplicity and powerful integration capabilities with no vendor lock-in.

Entertainment Partners uses Mule ESB Enterprise to integrate their ERP system with several line-of-business applications, including packaged applications, internally developed software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications, as well as legacy systems written in C and FORTRAN. The ESB enables a loosely coupled architecture, incorporating multiple transport protocols, such as File, FTP, SOAP and WebSphere MQ. The new architecture eliminates previously hard-coded integration interfaces and the resultant run-time dependencies between applications.

"Our previous batch, file and point-to-point integration was becoming very costly to maintain, and supporting the needed message-oriented protocols would have required a large-scale custom development effort," said Matthew Meyer, Director of Systems Architecture, Entertainment Partners. "We were looking for the most sensible way to solve our integration problem, and as we sought to make a decision, we were attracted to Mule ESB's thriving community, flexibility, and adherence to open standards. Mule ESB gives us a simple yet powerful tool to solve our toughest integration problems, without the complexity, cost, or vendor lock-in of more heavyweight proprietary offerings."

Mule ESB's open source model enabled Entertainment Partners to evaluate the product and build initial prototypes without a daunting vendor-driven sales process. The team was bolstered by community-driven support during the evaluation process, as well as the transparent product roadmap.

"With Mule ESB, Entertainment Partners can solve their tough integration problems without making invasive changes to their applications," said Phil Bradley, vice president of sales, MuleSource. "With a subscription to Mule ESB Enterprise, Entertainment Partners has additional access to the enterprise-class features, stability and professional support they need to ensure performance and stability for their mission-critical application infrastructure."

Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, ...
The now mainstream platform changes stemming from the first Internet boom brought many changes but didn’t really change the basic relationship between servers and the applications running on them. In fact, that was sort of the point. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Gordon Haff, senior cloud strategy marketing and evangelism manager at Red Hat, will discuss how today’s workloads require a new model and a new platform for development and execution. The platform must handle a wide range of rec...
Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
