"The API toolkit is the solution's most valuable aspect at this time, for our organization.""Mule works very well with Salesforce and CRMs.""This is the easiest and best tool available.""This is a good platform for designing, flowing out APIs, and then doing API-based integrations.""Customers can make use of Runtime Fabric, an RTF environment.""Overall, it is a pretty good product. It is also very scalable.""The monitoring capabilities of this product are very good because of the feedback it supplies in statistics.""We are very satisfied with the DevOps support."

Cons
"They have to improve their relationship discovery tool. They say that they have AI inside, but this AI did not automatically find relationships or suggested relationships between entities."

"Pricing is one aspect of the solution that is troublesome. It's too expensive for smaller organizations.""The solution is very expensive. They need to work on the pricing.""Better documentation, in particular with respect to the initial setup, would be helpful.""The terms of use and how it's priced has become very difficult to manage, which is forcing us to look for alternatives already - and we haven't even been using it for that long just yet.""Its documentation needed a little bit of work to make it more usable. It is a platform that is used mainly by developers and other people for connecting systems. Its documentation was confusing in some areas and was not very helpful in other areas. I had to go to a consultant to get some work done, which ideally shouldn't be required.""The runtime management and connectors could use some work and are vulnerable to breakage after upgrades.""It has different types of subscriptions. For platinum or lower subscriptions, there are not too many things that can be done. We don't see many features. They should release a basic version that has logging and monitoring features. These features should come with Mule Anypoint Platform for free instead of making customers pay separately for these features. Its dashboard can be improved to have a lot of charts so that it is easy to visualize information. The utilization part can be improved. The dashboard is good currently, but it can be better. Other solutions like Elastic have a good dashboard, and they allow you to administer the product from the UI. Currently, for RTF, there is a different dashboard or utility. It would be good to include the same utility in the cloud solution. It would be good if there is a centralized repository that includes the links to the information about various troubleshooting issues. The documentation is there currently, and it is good, but the troubleshooting information is too scattered. We have to go to different links to find troubleshooting information. This kind of centralized repository would be helpful for new customers who are implementing this solution. It will be helpful to see different kinds of issues that can occur.""Lacks intelligent management data and intelligent mappings."
