Leveraging MuleSoft to Mitigate Traditional Connectivity Challenges

Digital transformation does not end with buying the latest software. In the digital-everything ecosystem, success significantly depends on how quickly and effectively businesses can integrate their data and devices and applications for faster and more seamless delivery. This seamless delivery and low time to market require seamless connectivity. But traditional connectivity approaches can get in the way.

Traditional connectivity approaches like point-to-point and ESB integration are not the best options for business scalability and delivering at speed due to their many limitations. These approaches lack agility and are also incapable of integration in a cloud set-up. MuleSoft, with its API-led connectivity approach, can help mitigate the challenges and enhance scalability.

Top challenges with traditional connectivity approaches

  • Point to point (P2P) approach

The P2P approach is suitable only when the infrastructure has a few components, and the organization is not expecting significant growth in the near future. This approach does not help as it forms a “tightly coupled” connection between components, limiting instant expansion opportunities. P2P integration permits lower agility, high operational risk, difficulty in maintenance, and longer time to market.

  • End to End Approach using ESB

This approach is much more advanced than the P2P approach as it uses a single pluggable system. It also focuses on centralizing and reusing components. However, it has certain limitations in terms of implementation time and maintenance cost.

Time to market is longer and not suitable for today’s fast-paced business environments.

How MuleSoft can help mitigate traditional connectivity challenges

MuleSoft has facilitated organizations to deliver projects three to five times faster and enhanced team productivity by 300%. It also provides scope for innovation and equips organizations to cope with change. MuleSoft’s Anypoint platform enables organizations to unleash the full potential of their data and applications with its API-led connectivity approach, both on-premises and in cloud environment. The API-led connectivity approach produces reusable assets and provides speed and agility to business operations.

As per MuleSoft’s Connectivity Benchmark Report 2018, by leveraging its APIs, enterprises have been able to increase employee engagement and collaboration by 43%, meet business demands faster by 35%, increase IT self-service by 35% and decrease operational costs by 34%.

MuleSoft makes it easy to define, write, test, and deploy APIs across multiple environments. The API management tools manage the API Lifecycle and speed up integration. It allows organizations to import specifications into development tools and to auto-generate the baseline code from just those specifications. This further reduces time to market.
