Mule ESB Valuable Features

JustinJames
IT Consultant at a financial services firm with 5,001-10,000 employees
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 credit cards, maybe some other mortgages, like four liabilities which are split into four systems. I need to expose an API that can tune the data from four systems and expose it into one single API. For that, I have to call our services and complex security policies. Mule ESB loads complex web service security policies. Sometimes, we have some FLAC files or maybe some messaging services. We need to consume those components and expose them as an API, which is nothing but some adjacent format, i.e. a REST API. View full review »

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. View full review »

The features that I have found most valuable are that the product is updated regularly and Mule's framework. Overall the performance is good. For our current solution, I think what Mule provides out-of-box is a sufficient product. View full review »

The most valuable feature for Mule is the number of connectors that are available. There are a lot of connectors to different systems so if you want to connect to SAP or Salesforce, there are readily available connectors that are of great help. It saves a lot of time using this system. The level of integration that this product offers is quite far ahead of the competition. They have a very strong developer community, interacting at an informal level on a daily basis. View full review »

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. View full review »

The best feature for me was the easy connectivity and easy integration. In comparison, if you go through code license for APN, it will require more configuration or more code but if you're going to Anypoint Studio and using Mule ESB, you just drag and drop the connectors, configure the credentials and complete your process as per your requirements. The product helps me a lot to integrate quickly. View full review »
