In my first blog post of this 3-part series, I introduced the concept of reuse and return on integration assets (ROIA). In the second post, I shared a simple framework you can leverage to calculate ROIA to help inform integration development prioritization. In this post, I’ll share how one MuleSoft customer (I’ll call them “Tech, Inc.”) creates millions of dollars in value per year through reuse.
MuleSoft has customers across industries that are innovating and transforming their digital landscape. Our customers tend to have one thing in common: they want to move faster––whether it is releasing products quickly, on-boarding clients more efficiently, or delivering on services swiftly.
To stay relevant, today’s businesses have to adopt SaaS applications, cloud services, and API technologies and integrate them with their legacy systems. In SearchSOA this week, MuleSoft customer and Citrix integration developer Vinod Sangaraju discussed how Citrix has deployed CloudHub and is planning to use MuleSoft’s new solutions for Microsoft to fill BizTalk integration gaps.
We have been seeing incredible early success with our iON integration platform as a service (iPaaS). We have talked with over a hundred SaaS providers over the past couple of months, and overwhelmingly, we are hearing that integration is a major challenge for them as they go to market. Time and time again, these SaaS providers have been telling us that their customers increasingly need to integrate their SaaS offering with other SaaS and on-premise systems.
MuleSoft provides the most widely used integration platform for connecting any application, data source or API, whether in the cloud or on-premises. With Anypoint Platform®, MuleSoft delivers a complete integration experience built on proven open source technology, eliminating the pain and cost of point-to-point integration.
