What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature of Mule ESB is data transformation, i.e. our interacting with different systems and orchestrating for our business needs. For example, a customer has liabilities in loans and… more»

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»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you 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 other advice do I have?

My opinion is that Mule ESB depends on the business and the continuity of their enrollment. If you are a system that has not much left to repair, then your products and your APIs are assets within… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated Oracle, AG webMethods, and Red Hat OpenShift. The final one was MuleSoft. I'm very impressed with MuleSoft because of the pricing and license. You have to implement several components… 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.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you 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.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you 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 needs improvement?

* Limitation on external subscribers to listen to the messages on the bus. * VM queues and memory/thread management need more stability.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Get your basics right about your requirements and plan ahead especially w.r.t volumes, any premium connectors to be purchased and a rough estimate on integration touch… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We switched because this solution was found to be cost effective, freely available for community edition, and an easy transition from any programming background.

What other advice do I have?

Plan your use cases and set your expectations on the features that need to be implemented. It is an ESB that can deploy seamlessly on-premises and in the cloud with strong… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We looked at Apache Camel, Fuse ESB, Dell Boomi, and TIBCO.

What is most valuable?

The most powerful feature is DataWeave, which is a powerful language where data can be transformed from one form into another.

What needs improvement?

This solution could be improved by making it more flexible, and more user-friendly. I would like to see support for BPM in the next release of this solution.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We were using a variety of technologies, but we use this solution because it is a very lightweight message processing system.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We looked at other options, but this one is what our vendor recommended.
