MuleSoft has been named one of the “Best Places to Work” by the SF Business Times. The Times’ rankings are based on anonymous, voluntary surveys which rank their employer in areas such as teamwork, retention, co-workers, manager effectiveness, trust in senior leadership, benefits and overall job satisfaction.

So what is it about MuleSoft that makes it such a great place to innovate and work? I joined MuleSoft about 6 months ago as VP of Engineering, so I have been able to look at things from a newcomer’s perspective.

This Sunday May 5th through May 7th we are very excited to be participating in CallidusCloud’s conference, C3. We’re ready to get to Las Vegas, where the top operations, sales, marketing and channel industry leaders will be meeting to discuss revenue generation best practices, and how to improve sales and marketing effectiveness. MuleSoft is a featured speaker and will be hosting a booth at this event, where we will demonstrate our unique ability to connect CallidusCloud to other SaaS and on-premise applications such as Salesforce, NetSuite, Microsoft and IBM.

This Thursday May 2nd, we are very excited to be participating in the fourth annual Jobvite Summit. This two day conference located in the heart of San Francisco, is a great opportunity for the top SaaS companies to come together to gain skills and insight for acquiring the industries top talent. MuleSoft will be hosting a booth at this event, where we will demonstrate MuleSoft’s unique ability to connect Jobvite to other SaaS and on-premise applications such as ADP, Ultimate Software, Workday and other HRIS, Workforce Management and existing ATS systems.

SaaS Integration Webinar

In 2013,  SaaS, Mobile and Big Data (the ‘Big 3’) have moved on from visionary ideas well into disruptive realities impacting IT.  IT is no longer in denial, as they were for much of the last decade, and in fact are “leaning in” on all fronts.  According to CIO Magazine’s 2013 CIO survey, more IT organizations are focusing on building better relationships with the lines of business, and are raising their game and engagement into LOB projects, particularly around SaaS selection, implementation, and integration.

I am excited to share the news that MuleSoft has acquired ProgrammableWeb. This combination brings together the world’s most widely used integration platform with the world’s most authoritative voice and community for APIs.

ProgrammableWeb was founded in 2005 and has been the pioneering authority on APIs, providing a comprehensive directory, daily industry news, analysis, case studies, tools and technical resources. By providing an independent voice for , has managed to foster the world’s largest and most active API-centric community.

So, why ProgrammableWeb and MuleSoft?


SaaS Integration Webinar
Earlier this year MuleSoft completed our second annual SaaS Vendor survey with our research partner THINKstrategies. The goal was to quantify the importance and impact of integration on the business execution by leading SaaS providers. One of the most surprising findings in the report is that SaaS Integration is now an Executive level concern. Like anyone else who has worked in middleware for the last 10-15 years, I’ve mostly heard from engineering and IT about the challenges of integration, given their involvement in solving these challenges directly.

As you probably know, .com released a new API last december. And as you also probably know, we’re old fans of everything Box (you might remember prior posts about how to move Salesforce files into Box and how to move your Facebook pics to Box). That’s why when we heard about this new API we couldn’t wait to start playing with it, so that now we proudly announce the new Box Connector v2.0!

This new V2 connector features 100% API coverage including new features such us:

  • OAuth 2 authentication
  • Improved support for handling files, folders, collaborations, sharing and comments

I am excited to announce the general availability of the release. introduces new capabilities across Mule ESB, , Mule Studio, Anypoint DataMapper, Anypoint Connectors, and the Anypoint DevKit.

The Next Generation Integration Platform

There are three main areas around which Mule 3.4 introduces innovations that we believe greatly change the traditional ways in which integration is approached.

MuleSoft SaaS IntegrationJason Mondanaro is the Director of Product Management at MetraTech, the leading provider of agreements-based billing, commerce and compensation solutions. As the leader of their SaaS billing product line Metanga, Jason works very closely with customers and engineering to develop best of breed billing applications for their diverse and growing customer base.

Last week we sat down with Jason to discuss the challenges the Metanga team encountered around SaaS integration, and the benefits they’ve seen to date working with MuleSoft as a strategic SaaS partner. As you’ll discover from our conversation below, many times the product or engineering leaders within enterprise software companies choose to build a ‘whole’ product themselves. Learn why Jason has a different opinion, and the strategic thinking that lead Metanga down the SaaS partnership route.
