Upcoming Webinar: How MuleSoft IT Uses Anypoint Platform

Max the Mules

One of the challenges that fast-growing enterprises face is building an IT infrastructure that meets the needs of both today and the future. Faced with the same challenge of rapid growth at MuleSoft, we have deployed our own tool, Anypoint Platform, to decouple core systems and enable the automation of core business processes.

Mike Hamilton, the Director of IT at MuleSoft, will be presenting a webinar on December 3, 2015 at 10 AM Pacific called “Secrets from the Inside: How MuleSoft IT Uses Anypoint Platform.”

Wrap SOAP web service around a database


We recently introduced our HowTo blog series, which is designed to present simple use-case tutorials to help you as you evaluate Anypoint Platform. This first blog in Series 1 will show you how to insulate your backend systems like databases by exposing a system API using SOAP over HTTP.  The principle behind this approach is our API led connectivity methodology, which is an evolution of SOA.

SOA governance for the modern business


The term “SOA governance” has taken on the connotation of a select group of people coming together periodically to talk about SOA topics, establishing a policy which is dutifully documented, and then disappearing back to their ivory towers without making much impact on the business. But the notion of governance is becoming ever more important as businesses adopt SaaS technologies and initiate mobile, big data, and IoT initiatives. Suddenly those responsible for SOA policy can’t exist in their ivory towers anymore; every aspect of the business needs access to those policies, and those policies now touch everyone in the business. SOA governance therefore is evolving from a largely internal function for IT teams to one that extends to external audiences.

Upcoming webinar: Top secrets of API security


The importance of security

In April 2013, hackers hijacked the Associated Press’ Twitter account to post one fake tweet about two bombs exploding at the White House and the President being injured. As a result, the stock market went into a 143-point free-fall before the hoax was exposed and Dow Jones Industrial Index recovered. The entire episode may have only lasted 3 minutes, but thanks to programmed trading, billions of dollars can be made or lost in milliseconds. Unfortunately, there’s no way to know for sure how much real damage was done during this episode since the Dow’s recovery didn’t necessarily unwind the losses many incurred when that hoax erased more than $136 billion in market value.

MuleSoft at MuleSoft: Anypoint vs. Custom Code Automation

There are numerous great reasons for using Anypoint Platform at MuleSoft. You might even assume that inside the company there would be little competition. But like many organizations, using Anypoint here required competing with the inherent desire people have to use custom code for integrations.

Why DataWeave Matters


Data transformation

Data transformation is a core requirement for most integrations. Anypoint Platform provides multiple types of transformers, including XSLT, DataWeave and DataMapper.

DataWeave, our new data query and transformation language, offers significant performance advantages over Anypoint DataMapper, our earlier data mapping and transformation solution. The below benchmark shows transformations performance using DataWeave and Anypoint DataMapper with payload size of 100KB (1000 records) with simple complexity.

MuleSoft at the Girls in Tech Hackathon 2015


A while ago MuleSoft started considering sponsoring an organization supporting women in technology. There were many to choose from but we wanted to work closely with an organization that would allow us to be very involved. We also wanted to be inclusive since technology is not just about coding. Luckily, we learned that a new branch of Girls in Tech was getting started in Argentina and were looking for sponsors to organize a hackathon, so we jumped in.

The Chief Information Officer’s new role


Much has been written about the transformation of the Chief Information Officer, but as the world is transformed by the digital revolution, the CIO finds himself or herself at the center of extraordinary change. Technology has fundamentally altered the business of doing business. The emergence of an always-on, always-connected world means that old business models are being disrupted, consumers are demanding more, and the world is smaller and more connected than ever before.

November 2015 CloudHub update – now with self-service static IPs

November 10 2015

The November 2015 CloudHub update allows users to allocate static IPs for their cloud integration applications. If you have applications that need IP whitelisting, or are subject to network security rules that require a fixed IP address, then this update will allow you to self service these static IPs without having to raise a support ticket with MuleSoft. CloudHub users will now see a new setting on their application settings page, under the “Static IPs” tab. 


MuleSoft releases API Workbench


MuleSoft has launched a beta release of API Workbench. This is an integrated development environment (IDE) allows developers to build RESTful APIs based on a design-first approach. API Workbench supports both RAML 0.8 and the newly launched RAML 1.0. RAML (RESTful API Modeling Language) is one of several API description specifications than can be used to design and document APIs.
