Digital transformation is the only way to succeed among your competition. Whatever business is the most automated, streamlined and efficient in this day and age will lead their industry. To make the digital transformation journey successful, MuleSoft's API ecosystem updates legacy systems, supports microservices and improves process automation.
Digital Transformation Solutions by MuleSoft
Modernize Legacy Systems and Offer Improved Connectivity
Business environments are deploying varied innovative applications and technologies to drive business capabilities and value. Integrating these applications with legacy systems is one of the biggest challenges IT teams face. In fact, most integrations fail. This is where Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) come in.
MuleSoft’s API ecosystem enables businesses to seamlessly integrate with any application, device or system. APIs bind data, procedures, and business systems together and permits external and internal applications to connect securely and seamlessly. This way, MuleSoft simplifies the digital transformation journey without replacing legacy systems.
Supports Microservice Strategy
Agile development is very important for successful digital transformation. Microservices is a great tool for agile development. Microservices has changed the way we develop applications and how we deploy those applications by empowering business agility.
Microservice architectures follow a modular approach, requiring a reusable code base by various teams and developers. Without an automated process, coordinating and running integration builds is just not possible. This is when continuous integration is needed to scale up microservices efforts. Anypoint Studio in MuleSoft is a unified platform providing an end-to-end microservice lifecycle with complete operational visibility. Anypoint allows users to perform operational management using Runtime Manager and conduct analysis with Anypoint Analytics.
Accelerate Business Process Automation Efforts
Gartner defines Business Process Automation (BPA) as the automation of complex business processes and functions beyond conventional data manipulation usually through advanced technologies.
MuleSoft’s API approach to conduct business workflows doesn't require the connected applications to have similar technology or functional use case requirements. Businesses can automate legacy processes without having to migrate from their legacy systems. API-led connectivity approach promote reusability, as they are "built once and used endlessly" which is the core to realizing Business Process Automation. This is fundamental to developer productivity, as the ability to reuse APIs removes the need to repeatedly develop new code to automate business processes.
