Salesforce and MuleSoft now offer a new connectivity solution that accelerates project delivery and innovation for specific industries. MuleSoft Direct for Industry Clouds empowers both the business and IT to implement industry-standard integration use cases for business critical operations, faster. The first wave of MuleSoft Direct solutions is now available for Salesforce Communications Cloud and Energy & Utilities Cloud.
Why it matters
In a post-pandemic environment, there is greater urgency to deliver projects faster and more efficiently. Industry-specific technology demands are high as industries are being pressed to adopt interoperability standards, like Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR), Banking Industry Architecture Network (BIAN), and TeleManagement Forum (TM Forum), and automate this data exchange across systems.
MuleSoft Direct for Industry Clouds fills these needs by providing turnkey connectivity tailored for industries. The solution makes integrating systems and data faster, easier, and more cost-effective.
Innovation in action
With MuleSoft Direct, you get industry-leading connectivity, faster:
- Business users, like Salesforce administrators, have a centralized hub to initiate Industry Cloud connectivity with packaged integration use cases that they can click to enable in Salesforce.
- On the backend, MuleSoft is pre-deployed with connectors and workflows that MuleSoft developers can customize as required using Anypoint Platform. These packaged use cases radically accelerate the process of implementing important workflows, while also enabling the specificity of customization that customers require.
- The integration then automatically updates and flows to the use case the administrator has already deployed in Salesforce.
- MuleSoft Direct simplifies connectivity with pre-built industry-specific use cases and accommodates the most unique and complex business needs.
- Examples of use cases available for Communications and Energy & Utilities include ensuring addresses and services are valid during quoting and ordering, new orders to order management systems are submitted, and billing processes are streamlined.

MuleSoft Direct solutions will expand to Health Cloud and Financial Services Cloud early next year, addressing critical integration needs related to Prior Authorization and fee reversals. Onboarding of additional industries is planned for the future.
