Pros
It is easy to deploy workflows and schedule jobs.From my experience so far, the best feature is the ability to copy data to any environment. We have 100 connects and we can connect them to the system and copy the data from its respective system to any environment.

This is the easiest and best tool available.I have found several things most valuable, including its very quick implementation that you can use a lot of out of the box templates, and lastly that it is a very mature product, especially in hybrid integration.The monitoring capabilities of this product are very good because of the feedback it supplies in statistics.The solution's market place for different kinds of integration platforms is the most valuable feature.MuleSoft offers with the Anypoint Platform a unified platform for API management and an integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS) as well as an on-premise Enterprise Service Bus pattern.

Cons
The setup and configuration process could be simplified.The user interface could use improvement. It's not a major issue but it's something that can be improved.The Microsoft documentation is too complicated.The product could provide more ways to import and export data.The speed and performance need to be improved.On the UI side, they could make it a little more intuitive in terms of how to add the radius components. Somebody who has been working with tools like Informatica or DataStage gets very used to how the UI looks and feels.The solution needs to integrate more with other providers and should have a closer integration with Oracle BI.The solution should offer better integration with Azure machine learning. We should be able to embed the cognitive services from Microsoft, for example as a web API. It should allow us to embed Azure machine learning in a more user-friendly way.

Mule should have better B2B integration.An on-premise setup requires special skills and you need a lot of professional services.The runtime management and connectors could use some work and are vulnerable to breakage after upgrades.Technical support needs to be improved, especially when you need help with more technical aspects of the solution.MuleSoft's release calendar is rather conventional with two major, two minor releases and hotfixes in between. The competition sometimes offer more rapid release cycles and provides improved and new functionality with a faster time-to-market.
