How has it helped my organization?One of the important features of Mule ESB as an enterprise architect is that it should be scalable. It should be customizable for different kinds of clients. For client A, we need only two products… more»
What needs improvement?Technically, there are mainly two API standards. One we call SOAP and the other one is the REST API. SOAP is nothing but fully external. It's very old, but huge complex enterprise companies are still… more»
Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?WebMethod is very expensive, but their support is awesome. I closely work with the operating technical support team. For retrieving the code from our bank, they are working with us very closely… more»

What is most valuable?The most valuable feature is DataWeave. It allows for the transformation of data, for example to JSON or from JSON. It's very powerful. There are also many connectors available, which is nice.
What needs improvement?We would like to have a built-in logging framework in which we can do auditing. In our case, we are working on-premise. We are not using the cloud solution, so we have MMC, which is not enough in a high transaction environment.
Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?We did not use another solution prior to this one. We started with the open source solution, version 3.1.0, and we implemented all of the services. We then paid for a licensed version.
What other advice do I have?My advice to others who are implementing this solution is to first become acquainted with the forums. There are always reports coming out about the software, and new technologies. The next thing is that I would suggest always starting with… more»
Which other solutions did I evaluate?Before moving to the licensed version of this solution, we had a meeting to discuss the IBM Oracle web method. After looking at everything, including our code and the capability that Oracle has, we decided to continue with Mule ESB because… more»

What is most valuable?The most valuable feature is the Salesforce integration. The drag and drop feature makes it very easy for transformation, and to use the Anypoint platform. It is very easy to manage the flow using Anypoint.
What needs improvement?I would like to see the transformation component improved such that they can support the integration of more datatypes. For example, in version 3.7 they do not support the Excel format, and some companies using that version cannot do… more»
What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?The various features and components for this solution are no longer free.
Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?We started with Mule ESB.
What other advice do I have?I will soon be migrating to version 4 of Mule ESB, although we are also interested in the WSO2 solution because it seems to be very complete. Using Mule ESB does not require somebody to be a Java developer, although there are some Java… more»

What is most valuable?The connectivity the solution provides is excellent. There are often too many systems that we have to integrate and this helps with that. The platform itself is very good.
What needs improvement?I'm not sure of any areas Mule ESB needs to improve. The price of the solution is a little bit high. It would be helpful if different sized businesses had access to different plans. The solution isn't as stable as we'd like it to be. There… more»
What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?I'm unsure of the licensing costs. I believe the total price is less than IBM, but it's still rather expensive.
Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?We didn't previously use a different solution. We've only been working with MuleSoft.
What other advice do I have?We're partners of MuleSoft. We provide the solution's service to our clients. The solution would be useful for large organizations. If there are more than three or four systems, and if there is an expansion, it would work best. Small or… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?We looked at other options, but this one is what our vendor recommended.
