MuleSoft Increases Bookings 171% in 2012 by Connecting the New Enterprise 
Most Successful Year in Company History Marked by Product Innovations
and Customer Wins 
SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/05/13 --   MuleSoft, provider
of the world's most widely used integration platform, today announced
it achieved record growth in 2012, with increased bookings of 171
percent year-over-year, affirming the company's leadership position
in the integration market. Executing on its vision for connecting the
New Enterprise, MuleSoft delivers the next generation integration
platform by connecting and automating business processes across
applications, APIs, and data sources, on-premise and in the cloud.
MuleSoft's trusted integration platform enables enterprises and
developers to take advantage of the explosion of applications and
data by empowering them to generate a new wave of business
opportunity through the on-demand connectivity of those endpoints.  
"Our research shows that half of all organizations use some type of
SaaS to lower costs and improve efficiencies. But the point-to-point
data loading tools used to migrate data from on-premise systems
threaten these gains; they don't scale and can't address
cross-functional multi-system integration," said Carl Lehmann,
Research Manager, 451 Research. "Technologies such as those offered
by MuleSoft enable businesses to craft a hybrid cloud integration
architecture that can consistently reconcile cloud computing with
on-premises IT systems and manage them within the context of an
enterprise's business strategy, processes and operations." 
In 2012, MuleSoft drove customer success by addressing integration
challenges spanning the continuum of on-premise and the cloud,
merging the power of Mule ESB(TM) together with the CloudHub(TM)
integration platform as a service (iPaaS). Key milestones include:

"With the growing adoption of SaaS, mobile, Big Data and open APIs,
there has been a massive explosion of endpoints and a resulting
fragmentation of the enterprise. Companies can no longer compete on
building applications and managing IT within their four walls, but
rather need to embrace the fragmentation and compete on connecting
and orchestrating their information assets wherever they are. We call
this the New Enterprise," said Greg Schott, president and CEO of
MuleSoft. "By allowing organizations to harness the power of their
applications through integration, we have emerged as the de facto
standard in providing the platform for connecting the New
Enterprise."
