This is the most exciting time to be in the enterprise. When I started my career, I was usually asked to integrate to two types of applications: large legacy mainframe systems that had a team of ‘experts’ acting as gatekeepers and horribly customised enterprise applications that frankly nobody wanted to touch without a team of ‘experts’ to blame if things broke. There was nothing glamorous about my chosen vocation, yet I loved it. I wanted to figure out how to make these applications to better work together.
We’ve taken your questions, feedback, and suggestions and created another webinar built entirely for you. In this webinar, we’ll show show how to easily build and deploy an application from Mule Studio. In this 30 minute demo, Jameson Triplett, MuleSoft’s Lead Trainer, will build a simple integration application to send files to Salesforce.
If you can’t make it, don’t worry. There will be an on-demand version available after the webinar is over. We’ll send a link to all registrants.
Some of the concepts covered include:
It looks great, well documented, REST based, intuitive. There’s also some useful tools around the API like a few helper methods that return the data required for making use of their advertised capabilities and a useful ‘health status‘ site.
So utilizing the Mule Devkit the possibility of combining our favorite integration engine (i.e. Mule) with a little sporting statistics was very enticing.
Now before we get started let’s look at what do we have here:
In a recent study, MuleSoft partnered with THINKstrategies to quantify the impact integration has had on SaaS providers ability to acquire and support new customers in a growing competitive cloud landscape. View an infographic of the key findings or download the report.
For those Executives that would like to investigate if connecting to a third party application could help them grow their business, we’ve outlined a 3 step process to help quantify the opportunity.
Today MuleSoft and THINKstrategies have published the results from our 2nd annual SaaS Integration Survey. These results validate the growing interest we’ve seen from SaaS providers to build and offer integration as a part of their service. See below for the key findings and don’t forget to download the report today!

You want to get more done in 2013 so you’re going to need to switch from synchronous to asynchronous processing to do more with the same resources. Mule started life as an asynchronous message engine and has a lot of capabilities and optimisations built in for processing data concurrently. To help you understand asynchronous processing in Mule we have created this cheat sheet that will help you understand the basics. Feel free to ask questions on this blog or on the forums. Enjoy.
We’ve just started 2013 and we already have something to celebrate! Dataloader.io January release is out with many improvements that will make your data loading life even easier than before, including:
> Related object exports – e.g. export contacts and their related accounts in a single operation.
> Filter exports by related objects – e.g. export accounts for a certain user.
> Create custom SOQL queries for advanced reporting.
> Friendlier error messages for data problems.
On this 10th ‘Day of Christmas’ Mule blog post, we tackle an increasingly important question in the world of APIs: Presume that you would like to create a remote API (which perhaps exposes some legacy business logic) for access by internal and/or external clients. How can you make sure that access to your API is protected in such a way that:
A) Only clients that you trust can access them;
B) Those clients can access your API through the explicit authorization of their end-users; and
C) The end-users can be authenticated with a central entity, *withouth* having to share their credentials with your API’s clients.
Google Apps offers a cloud alternative to many of the office products. If you have a Gmail account then you have Google Apps including Spreadsheets, Docs, Presentations, Contacts, Calendars and Tasks. Of course Google Apps have APIS and of course we have the connectors to make it easy to connect Google Apps and your applications together. Lets get the connectors and then take a look at what you can do.
