APIs are becoming critical to thriving in today’s digital economy. In our recent Connectivity Benchmark Report, we surveyed over 650 IT leaders and found that businesses across industries are realizing great benefits from APIs. This includes increased productivity (58%), increased innovation (48%), and increased employee engagement (43%).
When it comes to digital transformation, it is no longer a case of “if” but “when.” In our latest Connectivity Benchmark Report, we surveyed over 650 IT decision makers and found that nearly three quarters of respondents are currently undergoing digital transformation.
Respondents cited that one of the main initiatives they are undertaking to achieve digital transformation is modernizing legacy systems, followed by integrating SaaS applications, and investing in mobile applications.
API creation and adoption are having a moment. As of January 2018, there are nearly 19,000 public APIs in ProgrammableWeb’s API directory. According to recent research, 94% of companies say they either have or are developing an API strategy. APIs are seen as an enterprise necessity.
In today’s technology-driven world, an enterprise is only as effective as its IT organization. In order to keep up with the latest technology trends – from mobile to IoT – and fulfill consumer demands, IT managers need to maximize their team’s ability to improve service delivery and performance.
The Crowd release, the next major release of Anypoint Platform, harnesses powerful collaboration capabilities and allows users to build, save, discover, and reuse APIs and other integration assets within the platform. These capabilities enable organizations to build application networks faster by making the design, discovery, and reuse of IT assets simple and intuitive.
To introduce you to the Crowd release and the above capabilities, we have 2 upcoming webinars.
In the midst of increasing competitive pressures from both incumbents and startups, companies across all industries are adopting Software as a Service (SaaS) technologies as a means of increasing operational efficiency, improving digital engagement with customers, and accelerating new product go-to-market market faster.
For organizations with decades of accumulated on-premise infrastructure and applications, adopting these technologies in a way that enables them to coexist with existing technologies presents a number of thorny,
Market, technology and legislative trends have created digital transformation needs across industry verticals. The mandate for digital transformation is clear – the question that IT leaders must answer is not “If“, but “How?“
At MuleSoft, we believe that connectivity is a core to answering that question. True transformation comes not from the implementation of any single technology – not from SaaS, Mobile, IoT or Big Data in and of itself – but rather from bringing multiple technologies together to create truly distinctive and compelling customer experiences.
Earlier this year we published our Connectivity Benchmark Report research that surveyed 951 IT decision makers on whether they’ve been able to achieve their digital transformation goals, whether they will have enough resources to do what they want to do this year, and whether they can actually complete all of their projects..
The answer to all of these is “no”; resourcing is a problem, time constraints and legacy software are holding IT departments back,
Being able to scale successful initiatives fast can be a competitive differentiator in today’s hypercompetitive digital environment. It’s not easy for teams tasked with implementing technology in the enterprise though; 50% of IT decision makers say they were unable to complete all the projects they were asked to deliver last year.
A recent report, conducted by Utah State University and sponsored by Puppet Labs, revealed that DevOps practices can boost IT performance and ultimately improve a business’s bottom line. High IT performance correlates with DevOps practices like proactive monitoring and continuous delivery and integration. Similarly, the ability to create and implement a successful API strategy has become a critical competency for modern IT teams. According to MuleSoft’s 2017 Connectivity Benchmark Report,
