Four Reasons to Leverage Mulesoft Platform Integration
The use of Mulesoft as a platform integrator has several major advantages. In addition to affordability and accessibility, Mule makes data integration easier and more accessible than any other provider.
Integrating applications with SaaS systems and databases can dramatically increase your company’s productivity, access to business information, and ultimately, revenue. Without a reliable platform for connecting systems and communicating data between environments, your organization might not be able to provide customers with the best service and employees the right information. Mule can do that.
To better understand why Mulesoft is the best choice for an integration platform as a service (iPaaS), here are some notable benefits.
- It works for any size of business: Whether your business has 20 employees or 300 employees, whether it’s small data or large data, Mulesoft can be deployed for seamless integration and connectivity. The current market forces companies of all sizes to use applications, Web services and other technologies to achieve their goals. Regardless of the size of your business or the number of applications monitored, integration and connectivity issues occur across organizations. This is a great differentiator for Mule; other integration platforms are designed for businesses only. Mule is designed for all businesses that need an integration platform.
Databases, transaction systems, e-commerce websites, etc. Mule makes it easy to connect all of these tools – allowing information to flow between them – so your business can make the most of the data it holds and the services it provides. No matter how much data you have in the cloud or on-site, no matter how many applications or web services you use, Mulesoft will help your business get the most out of its technology.
2. Versatility for connecting applications/systems: Connecting applications and SaaS of all kinds should not be difficult. This is the idea that Mulesoft had in mind when building its platform (offering an open-source community edition) and designing its integration services. Businesses use millions of cloud and mobile applications, but they must be connected to various software and databases. Mulesoft offers this connection without application or software discrimination.
3. Easier to implement and train: First, Mule uses the same tools as Java developers (Maven, spring, etc.), XML configuration and drag and drop graphical environment. With the right training for existing developers, the implementation of Mule can be fast and efficient.
Secondly, Mulesoft aims to provide users with a platform to connect their applications to a pristine communication architecture, this is their main goal (although it has support tools for REST and SOAP services). As a result, Mule is easier to implement than other service providers.
4. Lightweight and low cost: The maximum distribution of Mule is 200 MB; it’s light. And the simplified design removes unwanted modules, which saves space. In addition to its small size, its implementation and costs are light. Installation efforts can be minimal, training can be faster than other providers, and the time spent on your company’s integration initiatives can be minimal. It is light in many areas.
In addition to light use, Mule has a light cost. The Mule’s community edition (Mule Kernel) is open source and available on the Mulesoft website. That said, the kernel does not offer users the same benefits or features provided in the Enterprise Edition. Even at the corporate level, compared to other vendors, Mule remains the leader in maintaining the platform at an affordable price.
