Mature unified platform for iPaaS and API management enabling a cost-efficient model for re-use and self-service
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 most valuables features are the relatively short learning curve, and the automation capabilities provided through the BIML add-in for SSDT.
Built in reports show package execution and messages. Logging can also be customized so only what is needed is logged. There is also an excellent logging replacement called BiXpress that provides both historical and real-time monitoring which is more efficient and much more robust than the built-in logging capabilities. And none of this requires custom coding to make it useful unlike many other ETL tools.
It has the ability to be deployed into the cloud through Data Factory, and run completely as a software as a service in the cloud.
In SSIS, the scope is not only to handle ETL challenges, but it will allow us to do so many other tasks, such as DBA activities, scripting, calling any .exe or scripts, etc.
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.
I would like to see more standard components out of the box, such as SFTP, and Data Compression components.
You have to write push down join & lookup SQL to the database yourself via stored procedures or use of the SQL Task to get very high performance. That said, this is a common complaint for nearly all ETL tools on the market and those that offer an alternative such as Informatica offer them at a very expensive add-on price.
A change in the metadata source cripples the whole ETL process, requiring each module to be manually reopened.
SSIS can improve in handling different data sources like Salesforce connectivity, Oracle Cloud's connectivity, etc.
Pricing and Cost Advice
Licensing can be complex as is the case with most iPaaS/cloud offerings.
This solution has provided an inexpensive tool, and it is easy to find experienced developers.
t's incredibly cost effective, easy to learn the basics quickly (although like all ETL tools requires the traditional learning curve to get good at) and has an immense user base.

With connectivity, composability, and control, Anypoint Platform solves the most challenging connectivity problems across SOA, SaaS, and APIs. It's a unified, highly productive, hybrid integration platform that creates an application network of apps, data and devices with API-led connectivity.
|SSIS is a package is an organized collection of connections, control flow elements, data flow elements, event handlers, variables, parameters, and configurations, that you assemble using either the graphical design tools that SQL Server Integration Services provides, or build programmatically. You then save the completed package to SQL Server, the SSIS Package Store, or the file system, or you can deploy the ssISnoversion project to the SSIS server. The package is the unit of work that is retrieved, executed, and saved.|
