The way businesses use SaaS applications, systems and services has changed dramatically; having a solid integration solution in place is crucial for enabling seamless connectivity.  A couple weeks ago, we discussed the importance of choosing an iPaaS solution that fits your specific integration needs – not all businesses are created equally and what works for one organization may not work for another.  Properly evaluating a solution can have a huge impact on the success of your business.

With that in mind we thought it would be a good idea to share Gartner’s 2013 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Integration Platform as a Service. The report evaluates 17 separate vendors across numerous dimensions to help you choose the right cloud-based integration platform for your integration challenges.

View the report to discover why MuleSoft is named a Leader!

  • Expert perspectives on the iPaaS vendor landscape
  • Critical analysis of key differentiators
  • Latest developments in integration technology
  • Industry benchmarks and trends

APIs: A new path to SOA

February 11 2014

Long ago, enterprise companies started using software to manage information across the enterprise. As the number of systems within the enterprise grew, the need to synchronize all these isolated systems emerged. From this came the need to find a solution allowing system-to-system communication, and the easiest approach for this was point-to-point integration. Soon, enterprises found themselves with several systems interconnected via point-to-point integration, resulting in a maintenance nightmare. Rather than being unified, each system had it’s own communication protocol – some were file based, others were databases, and if we were lucky, some of them used web services.

The mess began to look something like this:

Why Are We Still Talking About Software Integration?

Dark Matter in the API Universe

96% of the mass of the universe is represented by something we can’t observe – dark matter. In the API universe far more organizations are building private APIs as opposed to public API programs. This is the dark matter of the API universe.

Happy Friday!

For this week’s Meet a Muley post, we thought we’d take it back to the Connectors team and introduce you to a newer Muley! Suchi Deshpande, Sr. Product Manager for Connectors, has a quirky sense of humor and focuses her time on keeping things connected. Despite coming from a mobile background, she’s settled into MuleSoft pretty well. When she’s not running around the office, she’s spending time perfecting her fighting technique.

First thought that came to mind when you looked into the mirror today?

  • I am definitely going to the gym… tomorrow.

How did you find MuleSoft?

  • Two words…Dan Ahmadi. He was my connection into MuleSoft. I used to be a Product Manager for Mobile Apps, so I wasn’t 100% sold on MuleSoft at first. But once I started doing the research and met the people, it quickly turned into a dream job scenario.

How did you first get interested in your field?

  • I had an excellent mentor in my first start-up. I always strive to be like her, but in a non-creepy way.

What exactly do you do?

  • Figuring out how to make the world one giant system… using connectors!

What to Consider

A little overview

Top business drivers across organizations manage IT projects that include SaaS to SaaS and SaaS to on-premises integration requirements. In the past, many of these businesses were able to overcome their integration challenges by implementing custom point-to-point integration. Now however, with more and more applications and data being run and managed in the cloud, point-to-point integration can’t keep up with business demands.

Working with Certificates

As you probably know, one of the most common ways to secure communications over a networks is the use of certificates. And although this is a great way to secure things, it can also be a pain.
In this post, I’ll share with you all a list of some of the most commons things encountered while working with certificates. I will also show you how to leverage certificates when working with Mule ESB. Finally, I’ll show you a quick hack that may save you some time when you are in a hurry.

Now what’s a keystore?

Java is shipped with the KeyTool, which is nothing more than a command line tool that allows you to create keystores. A keystore is the “secure” repository that Java uses to store the certificates. It’s basically a file that holds certificates, this file is what you’ll hock to you Java app so it knows how to encrypt and decrypt the messages.
