I often get asked the question, “What is your data strategy?” It’s a bit of a tricky question as in some areas we do a lot with data, and in other areas, we do very little with it. The market has trained folks to believe they need to become ‘data-centric’ via a data strategy — and so it goes.
The data tools market has various solutions with overlap amongst the different segments which are defined differently by the analysts that cover them.
I joined the MuleSoft Customer Success (CS) team in mid-2019 which was the beginning of a new adventure for me in many ways. I was out of my comfort zone — both in terms of my new role and the technology platform. Throughout my career as an integration consultant, I focused on how to get the data from source to target using drag-and-drop desktop tools. It did not take me long to realize that, at MuleSoft,
An application network enables organizations to connect applications, data, and devices through APIs which expose their assets and data to other systems on the network. As an application network grows the more reusability it will provide. Reusing APIs goes hand in hand with a high-degree of dependency between APIs. Therefore, a high degree of dependency between your APIs means that failures during the invocation of an API will affect other API implementations and the services they offer to the application network.
In enterprise system integrations, there’s no escaping the need to include file transfers in workflows. Integrators building out an application network in MuleSoft often need to meet various file transfer use cases involving multiple B2B partners, customers, and internal lines of business. It isn’t uncommon for large consumer goods companies to exchange millions of files per month with partners such as retailers, banks, and wholesalers.
Businesses of all industries and sizes can understand the growing importance of a single, unified customer view. Financial institutions in particular are realizing the advantages of an aggregated representation of customers’ personal data and behavior such as previous interactions, history, purchases, etc. to better serve their customers.
Since our Anypoint Platform October 2018 release, you’ve likely heard us talking a lot about the application network graph. We have continued to build on this foundational release and increasingly the application network graph is driving intelligence across Anypoint Platform.
Many businesses today are trying to augment and improve their customer, partner, and employee experiences by leveraging artificial intelligence and bots, yet grapple with the issue of cybersecurity. We’ve all heard of the numerous accounts of cybercriminals taking advantage of chat APIs, social network application vulnerabilities, and increasingly sophisticated phishing campaigns. However, the majority of cybersecurity hacks are still accomplished in a rather old-fashioned manner — through the use of stolen credentials.
