The networking of company data and systems is a complex matter. Companies spend around 400 billion US dollars each year on system integration. And this trend is increasing rapidly with the growing number of IT projects. The Anypoint PlatformTM of our partner MuleSoft provides APIs and integration via a central platform, which allows applications, data and systems to be connected more quickly.
Application integration is a challenge for IT departments and the business, both in terms of time taken and the financial outlay. Around 60 percent of development costs are incurred for the maintenance and adaptation of systems alone - which in turn inhibits the digital transformation. According to a recent benchmark study by MuleSoft, companies use over 1,000 applications on average, but only a quarter of these are actually connected. As a result, opportunities to profitably evaluate existing data remain unused. The API integration platform can reduce development time and maintenance costs by around 60 percent and increase developer productivity by up to 65 percent.
The MuleSoft Anypoint PlatformTM can be used from the public cloud in the form of an SaaS offer. It is then ready for use within a matter of minutes. Those who do not want to process their data in a public cloud for data protection reasons, can also use the API integration platform with the following models:
