MuleSoft Increases Bookings 171% in 2012 by Connecting the New Enterprise

Most Successful Year in Company History Marked by Product Innovations and Customer Wins

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/05/13 -- MuleSoft, provider of the world's most widely used integration platform, today announced it achieved record growth in 2012, with increased bookings of 171 percent year-over-year, affirming the company's leadership position in the integration market. Executing on its vision for connecting the New Enterprise, MuleSoft delivers the next generation integration platform by connecting and automating business processes across applications, APIs, and data sources, on-premise and in the cloud. MuleSoft's trusted integration platform enables enterprises and developers to take advantage of the explosion of applications and data by empowering them to generate a new wave of business opportunity through the on-demand connectivity of those endpoints.

"Our research shows that half of all organizations use some type of SaaS to lower costs and improve efficiencies. But the point-to-point data loading tools used to migrate data from on-premise systems threaten these gains; they don't scale and can't address cross-functional multi-system integration," said Carl Lehmann, Research Manager, 451 Research. "Technologies such as those offered by MuleSoft enable businesses to craft a hybrid cloud integration architecture that can consistently reconcile cloud computing with on-premises IT systems and manage them within the context of an enterprise's business strategy, processes and operations."

In 2012, MuleSoft drove customer success by addressing integration challenges spanning the continuum of on-premise and the cloud, merging the power of Mule ESB™ together with the CloudHub™ integration platform as a service (iPaaS). Key milestones include:

"With the growing adoption of SaaS, mobile, Big Data and open APIs, there has been a massive explosion of endpoints and a resulting fragmentation of the enterprise. Companies can no longer compete on building applications and managing IT within their four walls, but rather need to embrace the fragmentation and compete on connecting and orchestrating their information assets wherever they are. We call this the New Enterprise," said Greg Schott, president and CEO of MuleSoft. "By allowing organizations to harness the power of their applications through integration, we have emerged as the de facto standard in providing the platform for connecting the New Enterprise."

The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. According to a recent IDG Research Services Survey this rate of traffic will only grow. What's driving t...
"There is a natural synchronization between the business models, the IoT is there to support ,” explained Brendan O'Brien, Co-founder and Chief Architect of Aria Systems, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at the 15th International Cloud Expo®, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Enthusiasm for the Internet of Things has reached an all-time high. In 2013 alone, venture capitalists spent more than $1 billion dollars investing in the IoT space. With "smart" appliances and devices, IoT covers wearable smart devices, cloud services to hardware companies.

These technologies are quickly developing and with it come challenges such as bridging infrastructure gaps, abiding by privacy concerns and making the concept a reality. These challenges can't be addressed w...
We certainly live in interesting technological times. And no more interesting than the current competing IoT standards for connectivity. Various standards bodies, approaches, and ecosystems are vying for mindshare and positioning for a competitive edge. It is clear that when the dust settles, we will have new protocols, evolved protocols, that will change the way we interact with devices and infrastructure. We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...
The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...

The Internet of Things (IoT) is the biggest idea since the creation of the Worldwide Web more than 20 years ago.
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example t...

Code Halos - aka "digital fingerprints" - are the key organizing principle to understand a) how dumb things become smart and b) how to monetize this dynamic. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robert Brown, AVP, Center for the Future of Work at Cognizant Technology Solutions, outlined research, analysis and recommendations from his recently published book on this phenomena on the way leading edge organizations like GE and Disney are unlocking the Internet of Things opportunity and what steps your organization should be taking to position itself for the next platform of digital competition.
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
In their session at @ThingsExpo, Shyam Varan Nath, Principal Architect at GE, and Ibrahim Gokcen, who leads GE's advanced IoT analytics, focused on the Internet of Things / Industrial Internet and how to make it operational for business end-users. Learn about the challenges posed by machine and sensor data and how to marry it with enterprise data. They also discussed the tips and tricks to provide the Industrial Internet as an end-user consumable service using Big Data Analytics and Industrial Cloud.
How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...
The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to evolve the way the world does business; however, understanding how to apply it to your company can be a mystery.
