A Center for Enablement (C4E) helps businesses build and drive their assets in a successful, fast, and agile manner. But to get to that point, there needs to be a shift in mindset to achieve true digital transformation. Want to have a more agile way of conducting business? Learn what a C4E is and how shifting from a production-based to a production AND consumption-based delivery model makes all the difference.

4. 6 Fundamental Principles of Microservice Design
Digital transformation is rampant, and there are too many disruptive tech trends to keep up with. To thrive in the ever-evolving digital age, companies need to get on board with microservice design.

5. Announcing DataWeave Libraries in Exchange
You spoke, we listened. After hearing how DataWeave scripts can become a critical part of Mule apps, covering complex logic that often requires replication, we recognized the need to share and document that logic across applications. Thus, DataWeave Libraries in Exchange came to fruition.

7. Announcing MuleSoft RPA: Automate Repetitive Processes for Every Team
Not only was automation a hot topic, so was robotic process automation (RPA) – and when we say hot, we mean it! Our launch announcement of MuleSoft RPA at CONNECT was a huge buzz. What’s not to be excited about? End-to-end business automation through RPA capabilities makes MuleSoft the ONLY unified platform for integration, APIs, and automation. Pretty buzzworthy.
