We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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."
"The solution's market place for different kinds of integration platforms is the most valuable feature."
"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."
"This is the easiest and best tool available."
"It is very easy to use for building connectors. It comes with a lot of connectors. For example, it has different adapters for NetSuite, which are very easy to use. It also has Salesforce connectors. The object store feature is also really easy to use. Mule Anypoint Platform is also good in terms of performance and how it is managed behind the scenes."
"The API toolkit is the solution's most valuable aspect at this time, for our organization."
"Overall, it is a pretty good product. It is also very scalable."
"This solution has a well-known procedure for troubleshooting and tuning the performance, providing for smooth operation."
"This solution provides us with real-time replication and it does not affect the performance of other operations, which is very important to us."
"When we are replicating data between similar databases then it is straightforward."
"The initial setup is straightforward. It doesn't take too much time or effort to implement the solution."
"This is a powerful solution provided by one of the most respected companies in the computer industry."
"The most valuable feature is data replication capability."
"The CDC feature is interesting."
"They've recently improved the ease of implementation."
"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."
"Technical support needs to be improved, especially when you need help with more technical aspects of the solution."
"An on-premise setup requires special skills and you need a lot of professional services."
"Mule should have better B2B integration."
"Lacks intelligent management data and intelligent mappings."
"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."
"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."
"Additional performance metrics should be added and visible in a dashboard, displayed in a detailed manner."
"I find the user interface to be difficult for non-technical people."
"The process of transforming the data between two different databases is inefficient and needs to be improved."
"The solution, in general, should be easier to use, with less need to perform workarounds within the system."
"Technical support for Oracle products needs to be more efficient (at least locally in Egypt)."
"It should be easier to integrate this solution with non-Oracle databases, including cloud-based solutions hosted on Azure."
"We struggle with memory. It's limited. However, it may be because of our unique business case and how we use it that it's limiting for us."
"The solution is quite costly, and if they could reduce their pricing, it would be more economical to implement."
"Licensing can be complex as is the case with most iPaaS/cloud offerings."
"Mule is not the cheapest integration platform out there, but it deserves the price we are paying."
"The product comes complete at one set price including support."
"The licensing model should be improved to be more cost-effective for the end users."
"We do like the price of this solution."
"Pricing is based on anual licensing with additional costs for support packages."
"The price of this solution is good."
"We have an enterprise license for it. It might be for three years or so. I'm not aware of any additional costs to the standard licensing fee."
