What is MuleSoft
MuleSoft is an integration platform that helps to connect devices, applications, and data. Integrating data to deliver a single view of the customer, automating business processes, and building connected experiences are done through Mulesoft. Mulesoft’s platform, which is called Anypoint Platform, comprises a number of tools for developing, managing, and testing application programming interfaces (APIs), which support such connections. MuleSoft’s Anypoint Platform is the world’s leading integration platform for Service-oriented architecture (SOA) and Software as a Service (SaaS) as well.
Origin: MuleSoft was founded by Ross Mason in 2006, based in San Francisco. As stated on the company’s website, the name MuleSoft comes from the ability of this platform to eliminate the “donkey work.” The company chose this name to reflect its platform’s hybrid capabilities, also because mules are a hybrid combination of donkeys and horses.
Mulesoft filed for its initial public offering (IPO) in 2017. In May 2018, Mulesoft was acquired by Salesforce, which is a software as a service (SaaS) provider. MuleSoft technology is now a part of the Salesforce Integration Cloud.
