A few years ago, Gartner predicted the emergence of the Citizen Integrator: a domain specialist without an engineering background. They would use “clicks, not code” to integrate software applications and perform integration tasks as a whole, without differentiating the processes of integrating data from applications.
They are focused on automating business tasks and on business outcomes building integrations. They see integration as a tool to achieve those outcomes.
After working with thousands of enterprise customers around the world, MuleSoft has learned that API-led connectivity brings major benefits to organizations, like increased speed, agility, and scalability. Now, CIOs and chief architects across all industries can measure these benefits objectively. We recently hosted a webinar featuring best practices and frameworks for articulating the value of integration and APIs.
Many modern applications are built using microservices. The reasons are well documented: microservices are smaller, targeted applications that foster agility and are much easier to manage. However, as more microservices are built, often with different languages and deployment models, organizations end up with complex environments that can be costly and difficult to operate. This complexity can stifle innovation, negating the promise of microservices.
Today’s enterprises are increasingly dependent on all types of APIs and applications for flexibility and rapid development. However, if even one component of this chain breaks, it can have a ripple effect on its dependents, ultimately sacrificing customer experience and impacting the overall business. Meanwhile, the demand on IT is only getting higher, and the last thing they need is more burden on troubleshooting issues. So how can organizations increase governance, visibility, and control without introducing additional overhead and complexity?

Today, a company can spring up in a matter of weeks. Perhaps a new idea is planted overnight during a hackathon and germinated in a garage over a couple of weeks using unlimited cloud computing power, free developer tools and open APIs. Then, the startup might get watered by incubators and accelerators like Idealab and Y Combinator, helping to direct the young company toward the sunlight while sprinkling it with occasional funding to grow its products and team.
