Why Mulesoft is important to Salesforce?
Last spring Salesforce made an acquisition of Mulesoft for quite an impressive sum of 6,5 billion dollars.
It’s now, almost a year later, it seems like a really good move by this CRM giant.
What are Mulesoft and Anypoint Studio?
MuleSoft’s Anypoint Studio, an Eclipse-based development studio is a hybrid integration platform that enables integration between SaaS applications, microservices, and APIs.
This makes it a perfect solution when applied to a bulky, inconvenient, and slightly older system that needs updates.
Mulesoft allows connection to Salesforce applications in the cloud or on-premises. Its solutions help the company’s networks run faster, making tech improvement more painless.
Also, it will be convenient for businesses not yet prepared for a complete transition to the cloud.
Mule is applied at a presentation level. Therefore the business logic of the system, which remains the same, is wrapped into a separate service SOA.
It becomes an integration point and is applied on top of it.
More modules are attached in order to extend the system, while Mule provides interaction with all the additional modules on the side.
Since Salesforce focuses on investing in customer success within their core business, this partnership allows for potential growth in the new areas for Salesforce.
