Digital Transformation: It’s not a question of “If”, but “How?”

digital transformation mulesoft

Market, technology and legislative trends have created digital transformation needs across industry verticals. The mandate for digital transformation is clear – the question that IT leaders must answer is not “If“, but “How?

At MuleSoft, we believe that connectivity is a core to answering that question. True transformation comes not from the implementation of any single technology – not from SaaS, Mobile, IoT or Big Data in and of itself – but rather from bringing multiple technologies together to create truly distinctive and compelling customer experiences. And so, it is those companies that are able to harness connectivity as a core competency through building application networks that bring these technologies together, and that are able to drive digital transformations successfully to ultimately win.

We’ve extended this thinking one step further and through working with our customers, industry, and technology partners, distilled best practices for how to build an application network. Focusing on , , and industries, we’ve built a set of API designs and implementations, integration templates, examples, security policies and more, for the most common use cases in those industries.

If you’re new to MuleSoft, you can use the Catalyst Accelerators to discover industry specific assets that illustrate the power of Anypoint Platform. Learn how to design, manage, test and promote APIs in the context of industry specific use cases.

Already familiar with Mule, but want to go deeper? Catalyst Accelerators provide a set of pre-built artifacts that can be extended to address your specific integration needs using an API-led connectivity approach. Use one of the existing API templates available in Anypoint Exchange to quickly get started.

And if you’re a partner or part of our developer community  and want to contribute? Feel free to build their own solutions on the top of existing components within Catalyst Accelerators. Learn more here.

The Catalyst Accelerator for Banking focuses on:

  • Support for core business processes – Account information, payments initiation and legacy modernization use cases
  • Architecture best practice – Catalyst Accelerator for Banking provides a proposed architecture – one drawn from working with industry leaders – that promotes asset self-service and reuse.
  • Pre-built API designs and implementations – Following PSD2 trends and regulatory requirements, MuleSoft has built a series of AISP and PISP APIs that unlock core business data via secure APIs.

Catalyst Accelerator for Retail
