More Mule ESB Pros »

"I found it was quite easy to set up and implement.""The solution is stable. We have gone for months or years without any issue. There are no memory restarts, so from my point of view, it's very stable.""The most valuable feature is the software development environment.""We usually had used PowerCenter for master data integration (by replication). But in some cases, it was better to use Fuse for providing the master data online. It doesn't make it necessary to replicate data."

Cons
"I would like to see support for BPM in the next release of this solution.""We would like to have a built-in logging framework in which we can do auditing.""Mule ESB is more into the latest REST APIs, not much into the SOAP web services. Developing is all about web services and not easy with Mule.""The Anypoint platform consumes a lot of memory, and it would be great for developers if it were more lightweight.""The solution isn't as stable as we'd like it to be. There are some ongoing issues and therefore Mule has to provide frequent patches. Mule's core IP should be more stable overall.""Lacking some connectors that could be included.""It's not easy to troubleshoot and we still can't make it work.""MuleSoft is not so strong in method-based integration, so they're not so functional in that regard."

More Mule ESB Cons »

"The web tools need to be updated.""The pricing model could be adjusted. The price should be lower.""Our clients would like to see the user interface improved so that it is more user-friendly.""I don't know the product last versions. I know they are migrating a microservices concepts. We still didn't get there... but we are in the process."
