Within businesses, the networking of data and systems is, for the most part, time-consuming, costly and increases with the growing number of IT projects. The connectivity platform from T-Systems partner MuleSoft provides APIs and integrations centrally on a foundation that allows applications, data, and systems to be connected more quickly. In digitalization projects, important interface connections for the new system, often point to point, are frequently not implemented at the end of the project for reasons of cost or time. However, the mere implementation does not yet offer the company any real benefit; while data is recorded and maintained in digital form, it is not connected to other important company systems containing, for example, relevant customer data. This results in data silos.
Acquired by Salesforce in 2018, MuleSoft is not just speeding up the Salesforce ecosystem, it is also helping to provide interfaces to other company applications via a central platform for APIs and integrations, the Anypoint Platform™. APIs enable a unified and simplified communication between the various IT systems within a company in the form of simple, flexible standard interfaces. Information, which is currently divided between different parts of an organization, can thus be quickly and efficiently compiled together. The application possibilities for the company are multifaceted and stretch from the connection with SAP and alternative systems to Salesforce customer management, the creation of extensive internal employee apps and, finally, up to the SAP S/4-Hana® migration.
It is great to see how our partnership with T-Systems has picked up speed and, on this basis, is helping our mutual customers to become faster and better. T-Systems’ commitment to mutual advancement is impressive and encourages us to make further progress with our Partner of the Year.
