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."

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem" ...

The rise of containers and microservices has skyrocketed the rate at which new applications are moved into production environments today. While developers have been deploying containers to speed up the development processes for some time, there still remain challenges with running microservices efficiently. Most existing IT monitoring tools don’t actually maintain visibility into the containers that make up microservices. As those container applications move into production, some IT operations t...
For organizations that have amassed large sums of software complexity, taking a microservices approach is the first step toward DevOps and continuous improvement / development. Integrating system-level analysis with microservices makes it easier to change and add functionality to applications at any time without the increase of risk. Before you start big transformation projects or a cloud migration, make sure these changes won’t take down your entire organization.
DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.

In recent years, containers have taken the world by storm. Companies of all sizes and industries have realized the massive benefits of containers, such as unprecedented mobility, higher hardware utilization, and increased flexibility and agility; however, many containers today are non-persistent. Containers without persistence miss out on many benefits, and in many cases simply pass the responsibility of persistence onto other infrastructure, adding additional complexity.
Everyone wants to use containers, but monitoring containers is hard. New ephemeral architecture introduces new challenges in how monitoring tools need to monitor and visualize containers, so your team can make sense of everything. In his session at @DevOpsSummit, David Gildeh, co-founder and CEO of Outlyer, will go through the challenges and show there is light at the end of the tunnel if you use the right tools and understand what you need to be monitoring to successfully use containers in your...
The IT industry is undergoing a significant evolution to keep up with cloud application demand. We see this happening as a mindset shift, from traditional IT teams to more well-rounded, cloud-focused job roles. The IT industry has become so cloud-minded that Gartner predicts that by 2020, this cloud shift will impact more than $1 trillion of global IT spending. This shift, however, has left some IT professionals feeling a little anxious about what lies ahead. The good news is that cloud computin...

We will review several frameworks that can help you build serverle...
Culture is the most important ingredient of DevOps. The challenge for most organizations is defining and communicating a vision of beneficial DevOps culture for their organizations, and then facilitating the changes needed to achieve that. Often this comes down to an ability to provide true leadership. As a CIO, are your direct reports IT managers or are they IT leaders? The hard truth is that many IT managers have risen through the ranks based on their technical skills, not their leadership abi...
The essence of cloud computing is that all consumable IT resources are delivered as services. In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Yung Chou, Technology Evangelist at Microsoft, demonstrated the concepts and implementations of two important cloud computing deliveries: Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS). He discussed from business and technical viewpoints what exactly they are, why we care, how they are different and in what ways, and the strategies for IT to transi...
Thanks to Docker and the DevOps revolution, microservices have emerged as the new way to build and deploy applications — and there are plenty of great reasons to embrace the microservices trend. If you are going to adopt microservices, you also have to understand that microservice architectures have many moving parts. When it comes to incident management, this presents an important difference between microservices and monolithic architectures. More moving parts mean more complexity to monitor an...
Microservices (μServices) are a fascinating evolution of the Distributed Object Computing (DOC) paradigm. Initial design of DOC attempted to solve the problem of simplifying developing complex distributed applications by applying object-oriented design principles to disparate components operating across networked infrastructure. In this model, DOC “hid” the complexity of making this work from the developer regardless of the deployment architecture through the use of complex frameworks, such as C...
As Enterprise business moves from Monoliths to Microservices, adoption and successful implementations of Microservices become more evident. The goal of Microservices is to improve software delivery speed and increase system safety as scale increases. Documenting hurdles and problems for the use of Microservices will help consultants, architects and specialists to avoid repeating the same mistakes and learn how and when to use (or not use) Microservices at the enterprise level. The circumstance w...

Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning. Boundary (now part of BMC) launched a new public-facing multi-tenant high resolution monitoring service on Amazon AWS two years ago, facing challenges and learning best practices in the early days of the new service.
All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
