Today’s business environment has never been more competitive.
Every organisation is focused on protecting and growing its market share, especially from new entrants that at times turn entire industries upside down. As a result, the need for speed and agility grows stronger every day.
I am excited to announce a new guide format for content that helps make understanding Anypoint Platform and implementing typical integrations patterns much easier. With Anypoint Platform, an organization can not only integrate any two systems together, but can also deploy, and manage those applications all from within a single platform.
The goal of these guides is to teach you — the developer — how to wield the platform and gain a meaningful understanding on how to achieve success with your own projects.
We are very excited to announce the GA release of Mule 4 and Studio 7, a major evolution of the core runtime behind Anypoint Platform.

Today, I’m pleased to share that MuleSoft has entered into an agreement to be acquired by Salesforce. This is a major milestone for the company and potentially one of the most game-changing technology acquisitions in history. I believe it will accelerate us on our mission to enable organizations across the world to change the clockspeed of business with application networks. I could not be more excited about this next chapter for MuleSoft.
Imagine that retailers, banks, and hospitals can access all data about their customers through a single interface––the data might include the last product a customer purchased (retailers), their financial information (banks), or their medical history (hospitals).

Alameda County employs 9,000 employees working across 21 departments and agencies. The Information Technology Department (ITD) provides technology support for several departments and agencies, including the Sheriff, Superior Court, District Attorney, Probation Department, and the Public Defender, along with approximately 30 police departments and smaller agencies. ITD is responsible for managing the technology stack used by the above stakeholders and helps better enable data sharing between the different criminal justice partners.
What is IT’s role in supporting the business? Is it to create the technical processes that allow work to take place? Is it to perform the logistical and operations tasks that document processes? I believe that IT should be a strategic, rather than a wholly operational function. For that to happen, though, we need to focus on how to abstract away the complexity of IT operations. The value of abstraction is simple: abstraction allows us to move faster and focus on business objectives rather than on logistics and operations.
