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."

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

The IoT market is on track to hit $7.1 trillion in 2020. The reality is that only a handful of companies are ready for this massive demand. There are a lot of barriers, paint points, traps, and hidden roadblocks. How can we deal with these issues and challenges? The paradigm has changed. Old-style ad-hoc trial-and-error ways will certainly lead you to the dead end. What is mandatory is an overarching and adaptive approach to effectively handle the rapid changes and exponential growth.
There will be 20 billion IoT devices connected to the Internet soon. What if we could control these devices with our voice, mind, or gestures? What if we could teach these devices how to talk to each other? What if these devices could learn how to interact with us (and each other) to make our lives better? What if Jarvis was real? How can I gain these super powers? In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, will show you!
Today’s connected world is moving from devices towards things, what this means is that by using increasingly low cost sensors embedded in devices we can create many new use cases.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is growing rapidly by extending current technologies, products and networks. By 2020, Cisco estimates there will be 50 billion connected devices. Gartner has forecast revenues of over $300 billion, just to IoT suppliers. Now is the time to figure out how you’ll make money – not just create innovative products. With hundreds of new products and companies jumping into the IoT fray every month, there’s no shortage of innovation. Despite this, McKinsey/VisionMobile data shows "less than 10 percent of IoT developers are making enough to support a reasonably sized team....
Developing software for the Internet of Things (IoT) comes with its own set of challenges. Security, privacy, and unified standards are a few key issues. In addition, each IoT product is comprised of at least three separate application components: the software embedded in the device, the backend big-data service, and the mobile application for the end user's controls. Each component is developed by a different team, using different technologies and practices, and deployed to a different stack/target - this makes the integration of these separate pipelines and the coordination of software upd...
Mobile messaging has been a popular communication channel for more than 20 years. Finnish engineer Matti Makkonen invented the idea for SMS (Short Message Service) in 1984, making his vision a reality on December 3, 1992 by sending the first message ("Happy Christmas") from a PC to a cell phone. Since then, the technology has evolved immensely, from both a technology standpoint, and in our everyday uses for it. Originally used for person-to-person (P2P) communication, i.e., Sally sends a text message to Betty – mobile messaging now offers tremendous value to businesses for customer and empl...
