In the midst of increasing competitive pressures from both incumbents and startups, companies across all industries are adopting Software as a Service (SaaS) technologies as a means of increasing operational efficiency, improving digital engagement with customers, and accelerating new product go-to-market market faster.

For organizations with decades of accumulated on-premise infrastructure and applications, adopting these technologies in a way that enables them to coexist with existing technologies presents a number of thorny, technical challenges. In particular, connectivity between on-premise and cloud systems has emerged as an obstacle that has slowed the adoption of modern cloud technologies within established enterprises.

How APIs are the Backbone of New IoT Standards

The Internet of Things (IoT) is supposed to have 10 times the impact of the Web itself, which means it has potentially 10 times the risk for complication, and, with its ubiquity, 10 times the risk to security. Each “Thing” we encounter in our daily and professional lives could potentially be connected within the next couple years. And with so many, many more players, manufacturers, protocols, and programming languages, it all gets exponentially more complicated.

Digital Transformation: High Budgets, Insufficient Resources

digital transformation

Many organizations are facing a digital transformation imperative. Digital transformation elicits varying definitions. In short, it can be defined as an ongoing process in which organizations adapt to or drive disruptive positive changes and experiences for their customers and markets by leveraging digital technologies.

A survey by MIT Sloan Management Review and Capgemini Consulting found that digital transformation is integral to business success. The digital imperative is clear: “adopt new technologies effectively or face competitive obsolescence.” It is no wonder that digitization efforts are becoming increasingly important for many business leaders – especially CIOs – who view the movement as necessary for organization growth.

Meet a Muley: Veronique Houtepen, Customer Success Manager

What is the most interesting problem you’re working on solving right now?

That’s a good one! I would say it’s working together with my customers to structure a successful MuleSoft journey for them. This includes combining both the technical and organizational aspects of the journey, as well as prioritizing projects, and outlining KPI’s, prerequisites, and success factors. Since MuleSoft is a technology company, some customers often don’t take the above factors into account. Still, they’re crucial to the customers’ success. The most interesting (and challenging) aspect is diving deep into the customer’s world, looking where MuleSoft can add value, and then analyzing what is required from both sides to realize that value. In short, you’re building bridges between IT and Business departments.

Hacking the Hackathon: Reviving the Old School Science Fair

It all started with a simple question from my boss: “Steve, would you like to be in charge of a hackathon at MeetUp?” On the surface, it seemed like an innocuous request since MuleSoft Engineering typically does hackathons about twice a year or so.  “Sure,” I thought. “I’ll just get the engineers to self-organize into project teams, order them some pizza, and then sit back and relax while the amazing projects come rolling in.” However, I quickly realized that there was much more to this hackathon than initially met the eye; it would take a considerable amount of careful planning and preparation by a dedicated team of people to pull it off.
