MuleSoft Brings Powerful New Data Integration Features to Anypoint Platform

Latest Release Delivers Batch Capabilities and Introduces New Salesforce Integration Templates to Speed Time to Market for SaaS Integration Initiatives

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/28/14 -- Today at MuleSoft CONNECT, MuleSoft announced the latest release of its Anypoint Platform™, delivering a unified solution for application and data integration across SOA, SaaS integration and APIs. This new release provides a faster, easier way to deliver data to business applications, whether they are event-driven, real-time data or batch data. The Anypoint Platform May 2014 release also includes templates to solve the most common Salesforce integration challenges and new security certifications for CloudHub, speeding time to market for SaaS integration initiatives. Solving the application connectivity challenge is becoming a top priority for every organization, as evidenced by MuleSoft's 97 percent year-on-year growth in Q1 2014. SaaS, big data and the Internet of Things are fueling a massive integration opportunity, and MuleSoft is at the center of these mega-trends, connecting disparate systems and technologies with a unified integration platform.

"Many integration tasks around current SaaS applications appear simpler than the heavyweight enterprise application integration and SOA architecture that companies might have on-premises," according to the November 2013 Forrester Research, Inc. 'How Many Cloud Integration Technologies Do You Need?' report, written by Stefan Ried. "Additionally, more tech-savvy businesspeople are now directly using integration tools, rather than traditional enterprise architects. These factors are driving the market toward new tools and blurring the lines between application and data integration."

New Anypoint Platform Release Highlights
MuleSoft's Anypoint Platform is built to eliminate the pain and cost of point-to-point integration, unifying business processes across applications, data sources and APIs. The platform delivers on the promise of the next generation of integration, transforming how companies compete through connectivity.

Bringing together MuleSoft's leading application integration technology with powerful data integration capabilities, Anypoint Platform enables customers to be successful at all stages along the continuum of integration from point-to-point data sync to service orchestration to API management:

  • Integrated batch capabilities: Move millions of records between applications or data sources with fast, reliable tooling
    • Process records in parallel for accelerated loading
    • Follow a predefined load/step/commit model to ensure reliability and recovery
    • Create reports on the results of the job to track success
  • Anypoint Templates for Salesforce: Accelerate time to value with solutions built to address the most common Salesforce integration use cases
    • Customize, extend and reuse configurable integration applications that leverage best practices from MuleSoft
    • Built to address the most common integration patterns, such as synchronizing data across applications
    • Rapidly connect Salesforce to other CRM and ERP applications, including multiple Salesforce instances, Siebel, SAP and databases
  • Increased productivity for data integration with Anypoint Studio (formerly Mule Studio)
    • Anypoint DataMapper: Process data mappings and transformations up to 30x faster
    • DataSense: Build reliable integrations quickly with end-to-end visibility into message properties and payload structures
  • New security certifications for CloudHub: SSAE 16 and FIPS

"We rely on Anypoint Platform for modernizing our legacy systems and to help meet the US Government's modernization and SOA initiatives," said Aaron Weikle, senior architect at the Federal Government. "The platform approach enables us to automate our existing data integration processes. Enriching these new flows with data exposed through Web services and APIs helps us meet the demand for reduced costs and shorter delivery times. Using MuleSoft, the IT team automated critical business processes, eliminating manual steps and reducing process times from hours to minutes, for a 90 percent time savings. Using standard integration tools, this would be unrealistic. As we continue to build out the event-driven data enrichment and order processing system, we see MuleSoft as a significant contributor to our ongoing priority projects."

"SaaS is driving new requirements for application and data integration, as well as increased expectations in terms of the speed to market. With this latest release, MuleSoft is meeting the challenge with new core enhancements to our platform," said Ken Yagen, vice president of products at MuleSoft. "Anypoint Platform is leading the way for enterprises to connect SaaS and uniquely addresses the connectivity needs of today's companies."

Digital Transformation is the ultimate goal of cloud computing and related initiatives. The phrase is certainly not a precise one, and as subject to hand-waving and distortion as any high-falutin' terminology in the world of information technology. Yet it is an excellent choice of words to describe what enterprise IT—and by extension, organizations in general—should be working to achieve. Digital Transformation means: handling all the data types being found and created in the organizat...

You often hear the two titles of "DevOps" and "Immutable Infrastructure" used independently. In his session at DevOps Summit, John Willis, Technical Evangelist for Docker, covered the union between the two topics and why this is important. He provided an overview of Immutable Infrastructure then showed how an Immutable Continuous Delivery pipeline can be applied as a best practice for "DevOps." He ended the session with some interesting case study examples.
The Software Defined Data Center (SDDC), which enables organizations to seamlessly run in a hybrid cloud model (public + private cloud), is here to stay. IDC estimates that the software-defined networking market will be valued at $3.7 billion by 2016. Security is a key component and benefit of the SDDC, and offers an opportunity to build security 'from the ground up' and weave it into the environment from day one. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Reuven Harrison, CTO and Co-Founder of Tufin,...
JavaScript is primarily a client-based dynamic scripting language most commonly used within web browsers as client-side scripts to interact with the user, browser, and communicate asynchronously to servers. If you have been part of any web-based development, odds are you have worked with JavaScript in one form or another. In this article, I'll focus on the aspects of JavaScript that are relevant within the Node.js environment.
Alibaba, the world’s largest ecommerce provider, has pumped over a $1 billion into its subsidiary, Aliya, a cloud services provider. This is perhaps one of the biggest moments in the global Cloud Wars that signals the entry of China into the main arena. Here is why this matters. The cloud industry worldwide is being propelled into fast growth by tremendous demand for cloud computing services. Cloud, which is highly scalable and offers low investment and high computational capabilities to end us...
One of the ways to increase scalability of services – and applications – is to go “stateless.” The reasons for this are many, but in general by eliminating the mapping between a single client and a single app or service instance you eliminate the need for resources to manage state in the app (overhead) and improve the distributability (I can make up words if I want) of requests across a pool of instances. The latter occurs because sessions don’t need to hang out and consume resources that could ...
Approved this February by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), HTTP/2 is the first major update to HTTP since 1999, when HTTP/1.1 was standardized. Designed with performance in mind, one of the biggest goals of HTTP/2 implementation is to decrease latency while maintaining a high-level compatibility with HTTP/1.1. Though not all testing activities will be impacted by the new protocol, it's important for testers to be aware of any changes moving forward.
This week, I joined SOASTA as Senior Vice President of Performance Analytics. Given my background in cloud computing and distributed systems operations — you may have read my blogs on CNET or GigaOm — this may surprise you, but I want to explain why this is the perfect time to take on this opportunity with this team. In fact, that’s probably the best way to break this down. To explain why I’d leave the world of infrastructure and code for the world of data and analytics, let’s explore the timing...
Learn how to solve the problem of keeping files in sync between multiple Docker containers. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Aaron Brongersma, Senior Infrastructure Engineer at Modulus, discussed using rsync, GlusterFS, EBS and Bit Torrent Sync. He broke down the tools that are needed to help create a seamless user experience. In the end, can we have an environment where we can easily move Docker containers, servers, and volumes without impacting our applications? He shared his results so yo...
Auto-scaling environments, micro-service architectures and globally-distributed teams are just three common examples of why organizations today need automation and interoperability more than ever. But is interoperability something we simply start doing, or does it require a reexamination of our processes? And can we really improve our processes without first making interoperability a requirement for how we choose our tools?
Cloud Migration Management (CMM) refers to the best practices for planning and managing migration of IT systems from a legacy platform to a Cloud Provider through a combination professional services consulting and software tools. A Cloud migration project can be a relatively simple exercise, where applications are migrated ‘as is’, to gain benefits such as elastic capacity and utility pricing, but without making any changes to the application architecture, software development methods or busine...
The Internet of Things. Cloud. Big Data. Real-Time Analytics. To those who do not quite understand what these phrases mean (and let’s be honest, that’s likely to be a large portion of the world), words like “IoT” and “Big Data” are just buzzwords. The truth is, the Internet of Things encompasses much more than jargon and predictions of connected devices. According to Parker Trewin, Senior Director of Content and Communications of Aria Systems, “IoT is big news because it ups the ante: Reach out ...
At DevOps Summit NY there’s been a whole lot of talk about not just DevOps, but containers, IoT, and microservices. Sessions focused not just on the cultural shift needed to grow at scale with a DevOps approach, but also made sure to include the network ”plumbing” needed to ensure success as applications decompose into the microservice architectures enabling rapid growth and support for the Internet of (Every)Things.
Our guest on the podcast this week is Adrian Cockcroft, Technology Fellow at Battery Ventures. We discuss what makes Docker and Netflix highly successful, especially through their use of well-designed IT architecture and DevOps.
Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy. How should your organization enhance its IT framework to enable an Internet of Things implementation? In his session at @ThingsExpo, James Kirkland, Red Hat's Chief Arch...
Public Cloud IaaS started its life in the developer and startup communities and has grown rapidly to a $20B+ industry, but it still pales in comparison to how much is spent worldwide on IT: $3.6 trillion. In fact, there are 8.6 million data centers worldwide, the reality is many small and medium sized business have server closets and colocation footprints filled with servers and storage gear. While on-premise environment virtualization may have peaked at 75%, the Public Cloud has lagged in adop...
