This is the first blog in a series explaining how MuleSoft’s Anypoint Platform can provide agile connectivity across monolith, SOA, and microservices architectures

The big don’t eat the small, the fast eat the slow. In today’s hyper-competitive digital economy, organizations succeed or fail based on their agility: the velocity at which they can deliver the new products, services, and features that meet the changing needs of their market.

But given we typically talk about it in a systems context, it’s important to examine the core motivations for enterprises becoming more responsive to changes in their environment.

How can you make your business go faster? By connecting data in new ways. Instead of spending your time connecting systems with custom code or building integrations with a blackbox tool,
We recently surveyed 800 IT professionals across Europe to find out the pressures they are facing as well as how they’re using APIs to improve their businesses. The results were clear – moving faster and becoming more agile are the top priorities for IT execs in 2016.
Over three-quarters of IT professionals said the pressure to deliver IT services from across the organization had increased over the past 12 months.
