More Mule Anypoint Platform Pros »

It's comprised of all aspects of ESB (Enterprise Gateway, Adapter, TN, Java) and BPM (task, rules engine).""We can arrange data caching and look at the solid state. Also, the API gateway is a very good component that can handle relevant cachings and integrations, as well as and also load permitting.""A product with good API and EDI components.""All of the components are very independent but are tied together to give the business value.""The most valuable feature is stability.""The tool is very powerful and user-friendly."

Cons
"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.""The runtime management and connectors could use some work and are vulnerable to breakage after upgrades.""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."

More Mule Anypoint Platform Cons »

"t doesn't represent OOP very well, just a method and proprietary interface called IData.""We need more dashboards and reporting engines that can provide detailed information for management. In short, we need better analytics.""The interface needs some work. It is not very user-friendly.""The price should be reduced to make it more affordable.""Technical support is an area where they can improve.""I would like to have a dashboard where I can see all of the communication between components and the configuration."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"Licensing can be complex as is the case with most iPaaS/cloud offerings.""The product comes complete at one set price including support."

More Mule Anypoint Platform Pricing and Cost Advice »

"Some of the licensing is "component-ized," which is confusing to new users/customers.""It is expensive, but we reached a good agreement with the company. It is still a little bit expensive, but we got a better deal than the previous one.""The pricing and licensing costs for webMethods are very high, which is the only reason that we might switch to another product.""The vendor is flexible with respect to pricing.""This is an expensive product and we may replace it with something more reasonably priced."
