MuleSoft Unveils Next Generation Integration Platform for the New Enterprise

MuleSoft Unveils Next Generation Integration Platform for the New Enterprise 
Anypoint(TM) Platform Connects Any Application, API and Data Source,
Integrates On-Premise Systems, Thousands of SaaS and Cloud Apps and
Billions of Connected Devices 
SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/03/13 --  MuleSoft, provider
of the world's most widely used integration platform, today unveiled
its Anypoint(TM) Platform, realizing its vision for the New
Enterprise with the easiest and most complete way to connect any
application, any data source and any API, across the entire cloud and
on-premise continuum. Companies can no longer compete with just the
assets, technology and talent within their four walls. In the era of
the New Enterprise, companies must combine an explosion of
applications, data, partners and customers into a single, high
performing entity. The New Enterprise is hyperconnected, and open
APIs are the catalyst for this revolution. The Anypoint Platform
enables companies to win in this new era, by easily connecting
disparate SaaS, mobile and on-premise systems, within and across
organizations. The newly released APIkit, Anypoint Service Registry
and Anypoint API Manager complete the Anypoint Platform to give
organizations a clear path to build, sell and innovate as the New
Enterprise.  
"The cloud, mobile and Big Data era has ushered in an opportunity to
create new competitive advantages based on integration. Along with
this new era, there comes confusion about how to integrate these
fragmented endpoints to create that advantage," said Carl Lehmann,
analyst with 451 Research. "Hybrid cloud integration architecture is
emerging as a means to standardize practices and consolidate the
technology needed to integrate on-premise IT systems and cloud
services. Organizations will seek offerings, like those from
MuleSoft, that can manage integration equally well on either side of
the firewall." 
Connect to Win
 The rise of APIs has created a common language for
the New Enterprise. The number of open APIs has doubled every year,
growing from just a few in 2005 to over 13,000 today, and into the
hundreds of thousands in the next 5 years. The API phenomenon is
creating a hyperconnected world, as well as creating new channels and
business strategies for enterprises. 
This New Enterprise requires a
new kind of platform to support the creation and management of APIs,
connectivity between APIs, as well as to drive developer adoption,
community and monetization for APIs.  
With the Anypoint Platform, MuleSoft delivers a complete integration
experience that eliminates the pain and cost of point-to-point
integration, connecting the New Enterprise and unifying business
processes across applications, data sources and APIs. The Anypoint
Platform enables a path to the New Enterprise, no matter where an
organization is along the continuum toward the cloud. The platform
includes open source Mule ESB; CloudHub integration platform as a
service (iPaaS); the newly released APIkit, Anypoint Service Registry
and Anypoint API Manager; APIhub, the #1 platform for driving the API
ecosystem; as well as Mule Studio, a single graphical development
environment for developing integration applications either on-premise
or in the cloud. 
"Box's open platform enables customers and partners to quickly and
seamlessly integrate a proven content collaboration service directly
into their own applications," said Chris Yeh, vice president of
Platform at Box. "We share a common vision with MuleSoft to connect
businesses to their content at scale, transforming innovation for the
New Enterprise." 
"MuleSoft's New Enterprise vision is supporting NCR's
hardware-enabled, software-driven strategy and enabling us to extend
our leadership in consumer transaction technologies," said Eli
Rosner, Vice President, Global Software Engineering, NCR Corporation.
"A dramatic shift is happening today as consumers demand seamless
interactions with the companies they do business with, regardless of
industry, channel, device or location. MuleSoft's integration
platform is helping NCR lead this revolution across multiple
industries to make everyday transactions easier for businesses and
their customers."
