Cons
It is not easy to deploy. It requires someone with a high level of knowledge in the solution to deploy it, not just anyone can do it.

More IBM App Connect Cons »

Lacks intelligent management data and intelligent mappings.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.
