MuleSoft makes room for a Crowd in Anypoint Platform


MuleSoft has enhanced its Anypoint Platform for building application networks with Crowd, a new set of collaboration capabilities that enable the creation, saving, discovery and reuse of APIs and other integration assets.

The new features have been implemented through major updates to Anypoint Exchange and in the new Anypoint Design Center product.

The idea is to allow a central IT department to make it easier for other parts of the organisation to carry out integration projects quickly and securely.

This is achieved by supporting the discovery, promotion and consumption of composable IT assets, such as APIs and best-practice templates.

Anypoint Design Center and Anypoint Exchange allows organisations to quickly save, discover and re-use secured IT assets to collaboratively build an application network.

Crowd features include a Web-based designer for integration flows, guided flow design based on the action that users take, and making re-usable assets the obvious choice. To that end, Anypoint Exchange is fully integrated with Anypoint Design Centre.

Anypoint Exchange provides a quick view of asset dependencies, a facility for rating and commenting on any asset, and a new user interface, including support for the OpenAPI Specification (OAS) asset portal.

"With Crowd, central IT and product teams have a unified way to bring people, process and technology together to build an application network without losing governance and control. Different teams can collaborate on building APIs and integration while driving toward a common outcome on a shared platform," said MuleSoft chief product officer Mark Dao.

"The innovations in this release are enabling businesses to change the way they operate, by empowering more users to discover, re-use and connect technology and business assets to achieve greater levels of agility and speed."

Splunk chief information officer Declan Morris said, “When deciding on a solution to connect all our internal applications and systems, we sought a technology partner that could support our cloud-based infrastructure. MuleSoft enables Splunk to orchestrate across multiple cloud services in a matter of weeks versus months.

"We are accelerating our business by leveraging MuleSoft's continuous innovation. With Anypoint Platform, we're able to extend API-led connectivity to enable reuse and consumption across the enterprise, resulting in speed while minimising risk."
