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:
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.
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.
This solution is easy to implement, has a wide variety of connectors, has support for Visual Basic, and supports the C language.
The initial setup of this solution is very straightforward.
The setup is straightforward. It's very easy to install.
With this solution, there is the potential to expand, so that you can immediately write code onto the SQL server.
The workflow features have been very valuable. You can have automated workflows and all the steps are controlled. The workflow functionality of integration services is excellent.
It has a drag and drop feature that makes it easy to use. It has a good user experience because it takes into account your most-used tools and they're lined up nicely so you can just drag and drop without looking too far. It also integrates nicely with Microsoft.
It has good data integration and good processes.
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.
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.
Tuning using this solution requires extensive expertise to improve performance.
The performance of this solution is not as good as other tools in the market.
Video training would be a helpful addition.
The solution should work on the GPU, graphical processing unit. There should also be piping integration available.
It needs more integration tools, so you can connect to different sources.
There were some issues when we tried to connect it to data storage. It was a connection issue.
I would also like to see full integration with our BI because then our full load of data will be available in our organization. They should incorporate an ATL process.
Pricing and Cost Advice
Licensing can be complex as is the case with most iPaaS/cloud offerings.
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.
This solution is included with the MSSQL server package.
My advice is to look at what your configuration will be because most companies have their own deals with Microsoft.
This solution has provided an inexpensive tool, and it is easy to find experienced developers.

|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.|
