The biggest obstacle that gets in the way of business agility for IT leaders is back-end legacy systems and homegrown solutions that are connected through point-to-point integrations. This ugly, brittle mess of integrations is expensive to maintain and difficult to modify. In fact, many IT teams spend up to 80% of their time on integrating, rather than focusing on innovating. The negative effects on business agility and efficiency can only be imagined.
Literal types will let you define a type as an enumeration of possible values. This is useful in the use cases when a variable or function call can only take one out of a small set of possible values, for example, like days in a week (Saturday, Sunday, etc.) or HTTP request methods (GET, POST, DELETE, etc.).
In the first part of this blog, we discussed how government interventions (like FATCA and GDPR) have increased complexity in your corporate data landscape (on top of an already expansive digital landscape) and explained why a traditional ‘heads-down’ data strategy typically fails.
In part two, we will explore an alternative ‘heads-up’ approach, by outlining what an operationally ‘baked-in-by-default’ risk-based data strategy looks like, and how you can realize this advantage by building an application network.
We launched the MuleSoft Ideas Portal in early 2017 as a direct channel with our customers to house all incoming enhancement requests. This portal allows customers to submit ideas, view others’ ideas, and vote on the ideas they like. It also provides a view into other requests that are in the implementation pipeline. Since its launch, our customers have added more than 2,000 ideas! And as of today, we’ve delivered more than 160 of those ideas — that’s over 19,000 points — and there are more in the pipeline!
Nestled in the North Carolina Piedmont region, the city of Winston-Salem is known for its history, picturesque surroundings, universities, and major revitalization over the past years. The county seat of Forsyth County, Winston-Salem’s metro population of over 675,000 makes it the fourth largest metro area in North Carolina.
Using physical stores to support digital shopper traffic might seem counterintuitive, but monthly rental fees are a sunk cost and inventory is already sitting on shelves. A reported 75% of consumers intend to continue shopping via online platforms even after stores reopen, meanwhile retailers report reducing their investment of on-hand inventory by 30%. This juxtaposition makes real-time inventory visibility a priority.
The type system can help you save time preventing errors, find quickly the function you need, instead of looking for it in the documentation, and let you code using types to define different behaviors for functions. In this post, I’ll show you how the DataWeave type system can help you develop in a more efficient and clear way.
