In the age of digital transformation, organizations are under pressure to move fast, be more agile, and operate more efficiently. Results from the 2020 Connectivity Benchmark Report, which surveyed 800 IT leaders across the globe, showed that “automating business processes” is in the top three of initiatives that are top of mind for IT leaders. The idea of automation — reducing or eliminating human intervention — promises speed, agility, and efficiency, but how can you automate your business in the first place and how can you do so at scale

Unlocking the potential of AI

Much of the world only knows AI from what they see in movies. For decades, Hollywood has portrayed artificial intelligence (AI) in contradictory ways, simultaneously depicting it in a positive and negative light — AI is either going to save humanity or it will be the biggest threat we have ever faced. While these portrayals are often stories of fantasy, our future is destined to be heavily impacted by artificial intelligence.

How cloud scalability enabled 4 companies to meet shifting demands

With unprecedented circumstances comes unpredictable demand, changes in customer behavior, finding new ways of working, and the need to meet new demands. Companies that have adopted cloud computing and have a scalable architecture in place for their core business systems saw little disruption with COVID-19 despite this unanticipated change.

Scalability enables businesses to meet the needs of their customers seamlessly, even when a sudden change in capacity occurs. IT makes this level of scalability possible by creating an infrastructure that can adapt to a spike or drop in transactions.

Reopening your doors: What COVID-19 revealed about the need for scalable business operations

Just a few months ago at NRF 2020: Retail’s Big Show, I heard Ajay Banga, CEO and President of Mastercard say that humility must be at the heart of change and innovation. His statement gave me pause. It felt counterintuitive to the traditional view — that significant change or innovation stemmed primarily from intelligence, creativity, and experience — but it resonated with me. The truth is, so many challenges and opportunities arise from unexpected or unfamiliar situations where there isn’t an obvious solution.

What does scalability in cloud computing mean?

Since COVID-19 started, my wife and I switched to working remotely, with days filled with video conferences. The only way for my kid to connect to school and close friends is via the internet. At the end of the day, we are connected to the internet for news and entertainment as well. This is likely the same dynamic for others now as well. After some research, I found that my internet provider saw a surge in upstream (upload) traffic by 32% and downstream (download) traffic by 18%.

How integration can future-proof IT for disruption

What do manufacturing companies, healthcare providers, and fast food retailers have in common? They all need to access data to deliver on mission-critical and time-sensitive initiatives. Manufacturing companies need ERP data to make sure that the supply chain is on track, for example to stock up retailers. Hospitals need EHR data to more effectively triage patient requests for medical testing. Restaurants are entering a new ecosystem of food delivery applications and connecting their backend systems to these apps for data,

Getting started with MuleSoft Platform APIs and Postman automation in 15 minutes

They are known by many names: Anypoint Platform APIs, public APIs, MuleSoft’s Platform APIs, but what exactly are PlatformAPIs? Every time you login into Anypoint Platform, you are implicitly calling a set of APIs that are invoked by the UI, which are the PlatformAPIs! And here is the golden lingot: you can make these HTTP requests directly as well.

Automate deployment of EC2 instances with AWS CloudFormation APIs

When working with AWS infrastructure, it can be difficult to keep track of the provisioning of resources and potentially lead to security risks and unaccounted costs. With MuleSoft, it is easy to automate the deployment of AWS Resources using the CloudFormation APIs. AWS CloudFormation is a service that helps you model and set up your AWS resources. The resources are defined by the AWS CloudFormation template. Here is a short four step guide to automating the deployment of EC2 using MuleSoft and AWS Cloud formation APIs:
