To streamline the integration process, MuleSoft has developed Anypoint Templates for Salesforce, packaging recurrent patterns to help developers work faster.

As the world’s No. 1 customer relationship management (CRM) platform, Salesforce enables companies to seamlessly connect customer experiences across every touchpoint in the business: sales, service, marketing, and more. But the challenge many businesses face is how to connect Salesforce with their core systems and applications such as databases, enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems, and custom applications.

Though every integration scenario is unique, there are several common requirements and issues that developers must resolve. To speed up Salesforce integration, organizations typically apply integration applications based on five common patterns: migration, broadcast, aggregation, correlation, and bidirectional synchronization. These patterns are the most logical sequence of steps to solve specific types of integration problems, documented from real-world use cases.
