    Pros

    If you don’t have an engineering team, this is the way to go on doing ETL. It’s a little bit of the learning curve in the beginning but I think it’s worthwhile.

    Cons

    It’s so expensive but I guess you’re paying for the ease of use from the product.

    My company uses this platform to maintain some integration services and to publish these to other companies.

    Pros

    It's a fantastic tool to create APIs or microservices really quickly if you have the rest of your services in the cloud. For example, you have the possibility to create some microservices to connect your Salesforce platform with your Office platform or your ERP.
    It implements a fantastic and simple user interface to help you in the process.
    His knowledge base and his blog with the examples that you can find in these are really fantastic.

    Cons

    At this time my only cons are to move the MuleSoft on-premises processes to the CloudHub because these requires some adaptations to run in Anypoint Platform.

    Pros

    The user interface is very friendly, very complete this integration tool with all the options for setting up the raml, creation, exhibition  and configuration of the API in addition to the part of statistics analysis incredibly useful for making business decisions.

    Cons

    Not all options are intuitive and it is a little uncomfortable to expose the API on the one hand and configure it on the other, it would be better if everything were available in a single section.

    N/A
    Pros

    Standardizing the application runtime and APIs enables easy to use integrations to be developed rapidly and with minimal domain expertise

    Cons

    Not as agnostic (e.g. hard JVM dependency) or extensible (e.g. Node.js or Python application integration) as I would like, making it hard to use it for all of our ecosystem. We oftentimes end up only fully taking advantage of the API Gateway and RAML parts.

    ease of use cloud support Java based re-usability good customer support Scalability

    Pros

    API Manager - Helps in managing the APIs right from applying in-built policies to creating custom policies. Create proxy on top of your applications seamlessly. In-built load balancer as well as customization option.
    VPC- Able to create a private network of your applications and allows limited access to some of the applications
    Runtime Manager - Deploy your applications either on-premise or on cloud. You have option to choose your own environment.
    Anypoint MQ- Enterprise feature messaging system.
    Anypoint Studio - Eclipse based IDE where you can design the flows, debug, run them, create unit test cases and also use mocking feature.
    Anypoint Exchange - It helps sharing your API contracts ( WSDLs, RAML ), APIs, etc easier.
    Anypoint Connectors - Many in built connectors which help connecting to many systems like SAP, Salesforce, Workday, Twitter, AWS, Mainframe, etc. There is a provision to create custom connector too.
    It is Java based so we can leverage all the reusable libraries Java has to offer.

    Cons

    Pricing is not very good.
    Need more features in API manager like payload limiting, debugging is weak, etc.

    This was the reason we could do what we did with real AI, machine learning, and hyper connected api's.

    Pros

    The ESB is the centerpiece of our learning ecosystem. While not having a front end interface and requiring programming (API work), it's been a tremendous efficiency tool for us. If only we used it better!

    Cons

    It's pretty pricey and the service around it is also costly as that is the main upcharge for businesses who don't have a lot of programmers, etc.

    Pros

    I love Dataweave , because I am from B2B Integration background where Mapping plays a major role and a most time consuming part of the integration. Dataweave provides a great power and there are endless option to achieve complex requirement easily as well as quickly comparable to traditional mapping utilities. I believe, due to this it is going to takeover as future B2B/EDI Integration.

    Cons

    Although the drag and drop interfaces in Anypoint Studio have improved the overall experience, it still has a few issues that causes crashes or unexpected results in the IDE. You to have to reset the perspective or restart Anypoint Studio sometimes.

    Nice bus for connecting multiple applications and data sources via services.

    Pros

    Very powerful product that allows you to connect various and multiple applications via Application Programming Interfaces, along with conducting data migrations and transformations via the same product.

    Cons

    It is not for the technically faint-at-heart. This product requires technical developer resources who understand REST web services, etc. to truly make the integration points work.

    We tried this first when we were in app development. We figured out most of the features right off. We definitely needed something that was drag and drop.

    Cons

    In the end, we decided it wasn't cost effective for us to develop our own app and we had to outsource it. No complaints, just too time consuming for us.

    I think this is a great piece of kit because of how intuitive the software is. Completing and editing integration is made visually easy.

    The online training is all over the place since the upgrade. The paper documentation and video classes do not sync up with the homework and this makes it very frustrating.

    API management

    Pros

    Provides a mock service automatically

    Cons

    Many bugs in the editor - showing errors where there are none, showing errors on the wrong lines.
    Versioning done wrong - no way to keep API definitions in a proper SCM like Git
    Sharing not enabled properly in our organisation - not sure why but was told it was due to a "limitation"
    I wasted 2 full days doing training that was dull, slow, factually incorrect and we had to help the trainer spot his own mistakes

    One can try it

    Pros

    The ease of getting basic flow's up and running and how quickly you can get solutions to integration requirements solved. Anypoint platform, Exchange, Cloud Hub and the online collaboration components are all fantastic additions to the solution.
    Very easy for development because of the drag and drop interface, with many connectors ready to go with simple configuration and settings to get a quick connection to a system and also understand, with a lot of documentation available for the same online.

    Cons

    It behaves weird at times. A full understanding of the tool is not an easy job as you have so many functionalities embedded
    Anypoint Studio is Eclipse based: on some old machine and operating system (linux distros) this could be a pain.

    Pros

    The freedom and options to connect any system / component using the Anypoint Platform. Can connect flat files and expose them as a Web Service! The system doing a "GET" using web service will never know what kind of language / platform they're dealing with. It's a consistent look and feel of REST and SOAP.

    Cons

    Design tools are in Eclipse and require a slight learning curve if you are new to the environment. Because portions of the product are open sourced, updates require careful regression testing.

    Anypoint Exchange consists of a MuleSoft provided public list of APIs, examples, connectors, and templates that you can use to create applications.
    API Manager is a component of Anypoint Platform for managing and publishing APIs.
    If you set up your own account on the internet, you are assigned the Organization Administrators role. If your organization uses Anypoint Platform on a private cloud, obtain permissions and roles from the Anypoint Platform administrator for your organization. In the Organization Administrator role, you see and can open API Manager when you log into Anypoint Platform. As Organization Administrator, you can see and manage client applications registered to access your API. Alternatively, you can use the Anypoint Platform command line interface (CLI) to interact with API Manager.

    Cons

    API Manager,Anypoint Exchange
    You can deploy an API implementation to a Mule Runtime that runs on a server, such as CloudHub in the public cloud. You can also deploy to a private cloud or hybrid. A hybrid deployment is an API deployed on a private server but having metadata processed in the public cloud. Regardless of the server location, each server belongs to an environment, such as Design, Test, or Production. Servers are defined in business groups and each business group can have multiple environments.
